Black out your electric company. There you have it, the title for my Penwriters short story entry! Well, not exactly.
I need to choose between one of the other, "Black Out" or "The Electric Company". Both have bad connotations, and a lot of baggage to go along with them (ex: either Britney Spears' new album--great--or a PBS Kids television show--not bad, per say, but plagiarizing?--). At the same time, both of them could transform my original idea into something new and different. Ideas?
It's genuinely hard for me to choose. I know, after all, that it's a little pathetic that I'm not seriously getting down to work until now, December 26th, five days (but realistically four) before the absolute deadline.
Winning this contest and being accepted to the Penticton 2010 Summer Writing Camp would really be a dream come true. Actually, being a writer would be a dream come true. I know, I know, here I am gushing about my aspirations rather than working on my entry, but this really helps me process what I'm doing. Sometimes I like to do an extensive outline, other times I just like to dive in. I don't have a main mode of working or something that I usually do, I'm just trying to be me.
Ahh! So much gushing! Even if I had punctured an artery I wouldn't be this bad! Sorry, sorry, sorry to the anyone and everyone (yeah, right) reading this. Some days I just need to get it out there into the world.
Yeah, something like that. Hang in there.
