I know I've thrown a lot at you and the word count requirement is especially scary, but I don't want anyone to worry or think that they shouldn't attempt Challenge #12 because of that.
This is fun stuff. This is hobby stuff. It's something to do when you're sick of work and school. Just keep in mind you don't have to do it all at once. I know some of you have done two, three or even five thousand words in just one day. You have a month, so just pace yourself.
Also, as long as you meet the other requirements, I will still accept your story even if it doesn't make the 20,000 ish words Ok? The word count? THAT is a guideline. You have a month, so think of doing a longer story, but if you write something that is only nine or ten thousand words it will still be ok by me
I will be around this month if you have any questions or need help with anything. And I'm more than happy to help with ideas, editing and anything else you need.
Good luck everyone and I look forward to reading what you come up with!
