UPDATE 

Finished at 10:30pm on Saturday night.  I'll let you know in 6 weeks if it was anything worth mentioning.  ;)

--------------------------

About a month ago I signed up for the Writer's Weekly Spring Contest.

A five dollar entry fee, and on the pre-determined weekend they will send you a theme and target word count, and 24-hours to meet both criteria.

Well I received my criteria today at noon....and at 8:26pm I've yet to write a word.

I'm not worried.  I don't think so, anyway.

The target word count is not concerning - it comes to about 2.5 to 3.0 pages, which I can write in under an hour.  That is if I knew what I was writing.  I know the theme I have to adhere to, but how to do it in a unique way in which no other writers will......that's the trouble.

I've already shushed a few people who've tried to give me ideas.  It has to be MY idea!  (but thanks for the good intentions)

I'll let you know what I've come up with when I'm done.

If I come up with anything...

Too late to enter this one, but they have a Summer Contest just around the corner.
