NOVEMBER: Prejudice



Pride and prejudice by Kleemass

Prejudice comes in many colours and flavours and your story can show us a way where it is overcome. Or not. After all it's the ruin of lots of things too and nobody said this is going to be a happy ever after story. In any case, you don't need to add Pride.

Submission topic will be created on the first of November.

Note: This thread is only for questions or discussing November's writing contest. Good luck!

My creative mind is on another topic (one you’re happy about @ScarletBea  ;) )
I thought of a prejudice story starring Gurdig & Grey, but it’s actually become the core of the theoretical second book in their theoretical series.

I did start something else. Maybe I can find a few hours over the long weekend to get it down on “paper”.

I decided to bring back a few characters from previous entries this month (not required reading of course!)

Just finished editing it after working on other stuff all month  :)

Got there in the end. Great theme, and I had fun writing it.

Sorry Bea, I was doing NaNo all month, writing a Hannibal flash fiction per day, plus my other work, hitting between 800 and 3000 words a day and couldn't take on a fourth project within that mental space. Plus returned to work on top of this... Unmanageable. It is a great theme...
