firts time on the forums, but i signed up for the comp...so hello
 
I thought id see how others are doing and im glad to see there are few out there who need to really think out thier stories and just dont write masterpieces off the top of their heads  :)
 
I got Thriller with the Photo Album.  I worked on it about 6 hours yesterday and got 7 pages or so....i think i have a good story going, but i dont know if ill be ablke to pull off the thiller aspect...I hope i do enough so it doesnt get disqualified.   I have Tuesday and Wednesday off and im hoping to be done by then to have my group of proofreaders check to see if its any good....

I'm impressed with how far along everyone is so far.
 
I wish it came to me faster, but unfortunately I tend to write better when I am in full panic mode and that won't happen until at least Wednesday.

I can't believe how far people are also......its still forming in my head....I'm stuck with comedy/hunting....the concept came to me pretty quickly - but now I'm just trying to figure out how to turn it into a story with a beginning a middle and an end. 
 
I work best under pressure too.  I think I might motivate tonight to try and get started though.  With my luck work will get out of control this week and I'll be in trouble.

My idea didnt come easily...it started as one thing, formed to another , then to another and now im heading towards option 4....but im getting stuck here and there trying to do character development, good story, good ending and make it a thriller....hope it works out.  Worst that will happen i wont win... best thing(well besides taking the prize home) is im getting my mind and hands dirty by doing this...

So Far...I've completed a first draft of my assignment: Ghost Story-A Lost Trail.

It's 15 breezy pages. I'm trying not to think about it today. I'll attack it tonight with a critical eye.

The PDF function isn't working on my software, but I have an effective back-up plan.

And finally, today is my birthday. My boss brought a cake. I am loved.

Had three outlines yesterday, narrowed it to one this morning, finished page 18 at 1:00 this afternoon.  I like the general story, but it still needs a lot of work, and a touch more character development.
As usual, I'm full speed ahead and now need to go back and fill in the stuff I missed.


Holy canoli!  I just thought of an ending to mine early this morning.  (2 am -- ain't that always the way?)

I haven't even started writing it, yet, since I have to take the missus to the doctor's office and I don't want to get into that "writer who excludes the rest of the world" headspace and miss it.
