That's kinda what I had in mind. I have high hopes for it at least and haven't lost interest like I have on so many of my other projects even though it's been slow going and I have to keep backtracking to make all the pieces fit together from my notes. I'm still working the kinks out in the initial setup. Once I can get past that hurdle, I can start working on his epic journey. To you and me everything he faces might seem insignificant, but he won't have the tools and experience to deal with it so he has to come up with his own solutions.

Another great addition! And thanks for all the hard work you put into this everyone! After reading the interviews, I can definitely say that it has inspired me to strive even harder to finish my contest entry or, failing that, find and slap a grizzly so I don't end up in there with the likes of any of them. I think I will take mizal's advice and turn off my internet for a while just to see if that makes even the slightest difference, but I'll have to just complain to myself whenever I'm feeling 'stuck' instead of asking if anyone has any useful tips for my predicament or attempting to elicit sympathy from fellow writing enthusiasts. Probably the primary reason she even thought to put it in, now that I think about it, since she's way too nice to just say "Busy. Go away!" I'm not really sure about the "...do some minor physical activity like house cleaning or so on that doesn’t require your brain’s involvement" thing, though. Some of the stuff I have to do battle with requires that I get really, really creative and sometimes even "think outside the box" (which is only a last resort, mind you, because it's freakin' hot out there and with this humidity, well...) Anyway, great contributions from everyone and I can hardly wait for the next edition.

I was seven the first time I hopped a freight and ended up halfway across the state. I think my character can handle it.

Are you keeping notes on me or something!? Lol

I've been toying around with this idea for a quite a while now with only vague and random notions, then along comes this EPIC contest and I think "This is perfect! What better way to tell it if not EPICALLY?"

And Thanks! I look forward to writing it.

I hope he believes that demon fairies snuck in and used his computer to sign him up for all sorts of crap like deviant porn, contests, spam, etc.

Thanks! Now I just have to write this behemoth. Well, unless I have to start over and redo the whole idea.
