Mysterious Paris in 1000 words

Why couldn't the Liberty Hall Writers end-of-year challenge take place during the final week of the year? Or be two weeks long?

Despite it being a super-busy week for me, I was thinking about the trigger. And it made me think of Mysterious Paris, except with the alternate way of telling the story that I once considered. I'm not sure if I could keep it at 1000 words, but it could definitely be a short story. But I don't have time to finish this... not if I also finish a couple of chores and get to bed at a reasonable hour.

But at least I've started it. And now I'm loving the short story version and thinking I should finish it. Because it would be good to get down to the essence of Mysterious Paris. And, also, it's helpful to explore Georgia's point-of-view. Will I want to go back to the novel?

Oh, and the short story has a different name. But perhaps that's just the trigger giving it a temporary name.

I feel stupid because, while I did get something in and in plenty of time, I may have goofed so badly that it will be disqualified anyway.

dum,dum,dum,dum

Why is it that when you really could care less if it gets in all right, no problem. You care about something, and ka-pow, brain immediately goes on vacation!? What *is* that!!! :D

Very cool for working on it and getting it in all right, though, especially when your so busy. It looks like it's going to be a seriously large group of entries, which is always my favorite :)

No, I didn't get it in. I started putting it together, but realized I couldn't finish it, unless I stayed awake until the deadline (and skipped chores).

Wups, I misunderstood :). But having the work is still very cool, no matter what, and getting to know a character, too.

I wish they were up so I would know if I was in or not.
