    Well, i've interviewed my main character, and it was easier than i thought it would be. And i got it done well before the chain kicks off. Cool. That'll give me time to edit before i post (not my usual edit after i post routine)

    I started brainstorming mine, and I'm having so much fun with it! I hope it doesn't get too long, though, I've never done this before. I keep wanting to write it like I write a story, and not like an interview. But I'll work on that by the time it's my turn.

    Rather stupidly, I started to work on my interview earlier, and eneded up almost writing a short story! In fact, I think I'm going to keep it aside and work on it a little more, because I really like it as a stand alone story lol. (It's written from a journalist's POV, not my own, if that makes any sense).

    So I guess I'll start over on my blog entry. Want to keep the story aside for my W1S1 challenge. Not bad news at all because it certainly inspired me to write SOMETHING today! So cheers

    It can;t be stupid if it results in a new story idea. Well done!

    Here's mine! It's not super long, but I hadn't had the chance to really delve into the mind of these two characters yet, so playing with their dynamic was lots of fun.

    Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed their bantering, they do a lot of it, haha. (and yes, it's playful )

    And re: your post- Sam sounds like quite the intriguing character! I'm looking forward to learning more about her. And Max.

    You sure can I'll add you to the list. This month's blog chain might stretch a few days into Feb, but that's no problem.
