So the assignments have been sent out, and a few days later, I have started working on an idea. I have 591 words of mostly accompanying fluff / character exposition. I love the character side of the plot already. The other side of the plot that should happen somewhere in between turns out to be a whodunnit, and will have to be a lot longer than that. I have only a vague idea about what it should actually revolve about.
It also requires research. Lots of research.
Inspiration is *insert expletive of your own choice*.
P.S. 1153 words in. More of the character plot. Only a teeny tiny bit more of the other plot.
