Ok. Seemed more like an essay to me. I guess I'll try it, and most likely fail.

50,000 words is a lot of words. Wish I had a story in my head.

But remember, you can't start until November 1!

It's not essay. It's novel. And you win by finishing it in time.

By the way, a couple of rules apply:

1. Your original content only. No copying from Wiki to fill 50,000 words.

2. Needs to be a complete story.

3. Follow all grammar conventions of the English Language.
