Yes, I’m giving it another go this year! I’m not sure how many years since I last tried, but I remember there was one time I actually wrote one chapter. It was “The Misanthropic, Xenophobic, World-Savers Travel Club,” and the first chapter was about an epidemic and it explains how the club started. I’ve never really gotten farther than that, though I did do a bit on the 2nd chapter.
This year I’ve titled it “Yet Something Pipeth Like a Bird” which is a quote from a poem. It starts as a dystopian story in which a lot of things in the (former) United States have gone terribly wrong, some of which are natural events or accidents and others that were intentionally caused by people.
There are several “main” characters who live in different areas and face a variety of challenges, but by the end they are brought together and somehow (I haven’t figured this part out yet) they start a change which will lead to recovery and improved quality of life.
I still have almost 2 weeks in which to plan before time to start writing. I have some paid assignments I’m working on, but not so many that I have no time to write my own stories.
