I totally forgot to do the mini prompt yesterday…What about this?

We just had the Easter holiday. Why don’t we make up our own holiday for the day after Easter? It could be like Festivus, for Easter or anything you like. Tell us about your new holiday in the reply space.

I had a great time sharing at the RIT writer’s conference about NaNo.

Three was a panel at the con, and an open invitation to people that had participated in NaNo in the past. It was a blast. I got to share lots of ideas that I’ve developed while working with Writrs.

At the end we created 3 characters for a new story. Here they are:

  • Anne (with an e) if from a small town in CT. (I forgot the other details about Anne.)
  • John the Mailman is a mailman who is in NY on business (not related to being a Mailman.)
  • Wendy was born in Pa, but lives in CA, and is in NY on business unrelated to John’s business.

They are all in a building when the power goes out and John spills his coffee on Wendy.

So after creating our characters, I asked the participants in the panel to tell me the end of the story. We got a lot of fun answers. What ending would you give our story?
