I'm trying to think of something, honestly. :D The characters are hanging around but won't tell me what they're doing yet.

Ha, I hear you. The two main characters in my current project are friends, but they're not telling me anything particular that I could write about that won't basically already be written about in the main project...I'd rather do another character background exploration thing like I did for the February one if I can and not one of the scenes from the main project that would technically work. I just need to come up with something first that would fit the theme.

I doubt that i will enter something this month. I have trouble getting myself to write anything this month (i blame Zelda  :P) and even if i manage to write something, i'm far from the place in my novel where friendship is an issue.
Maybe next month - at least the camp should help me to actually write.

I'll probably post something from my short stories I've been working on. The main concept is friendship so it should fit the guidelines no matter the scene I choose.  :D
I was going to say that life is short. There are only a few good things in it, really. Don't pretend that one isn't happening. - Ripred, The Underland Chronicles, book 4

Reminder - please submit your entries. It can be something already written, that's fine.

I have a piece that I am working on but it still needs editing.

I have vacation this week so I'm hoping to get something written (...probably not until Wednesday night, though), but I don't have any ideas.  :-\ I think that's partially because I've already been writing about friendship in general since that's what my main project basically focuses on, and there aren't any scenes in the main project that I want to write and use as a challenge entry ('cause it would mean writing out of order).

I'm tentatively going to work on a piece for this challenge. I haven't had a fluid idea but I thiiiiiink I have one I'd like to explore. With Kisa of course because I love her.

Title:  Of Beginnings, Middles, and Ends
Word count: 4,716
Summary: In the aftermath of the wars that broke Fatale's curse, the people of Fatale cope with the Life that is unfolding.
Link to story: click title

Perhaps I've been influenced by Pride & Prejudice but I did four short chapters, which are a sort of Epilogue similar to Pullman's Lantern Slides for His Dark Materials.

They all sort of interact with the friendship Jadious and Kisa have, as well as Kisa's friendship with Dierzo and SPOILERS for how the series ends, more or less.
