Gp1 Historical fiction. AGAIN. Not too bothered but would’ve liked to have been forced into another genre I would normally not write.

Ooh.. I'm in your group!  I've never had Hist Fiction before and am a little daunted. I've gone with the first idea that came into my head as I can't shake it.  Good luck!  
Now can you come up with one for me? I’m struggling, everything seems trite.
Goodluck groupmate! Can’t wait to read your story 😊😊

Well, I thought about slaves chained by ankles together walking and slipping in the snow.  I also thought about ice boxes to chill things 100 years ago. I also thought about someone walking to the gallows and slipping on the ice.  I didn't use any of those but it might get you thinking!

Heya group mate.  Ideas I didn't use: 
- Invading/retreating soldiers 
- Husky dog racing
- Girl choosing to go nunnery
If they help,  you're welcome to them :)

Trying to fit my story into 250 words. I forgot how FEW words that is!

Drama, washing windows, beauty.

I really thought I wasn't going to come up with a good idea for this one ! Everything felt too much like a thriller, suspense, or horror idea but nothing that felt right for drama. All my idea for drama felt very cliche.

Then my mother-in-law suggested taking one of those cliche ideas and writing it from a different character's point of view. That was finally the light bulb moment for my story idea!

Really hoping my story is enough. Also hoping the judges don't pass over my word as I changed it to not be a real word, if that makes sense. 250 words is wayyyyy easier to do horror with LOL
