At 3100 words, my entry is not only over the limit of 3000 words. I've also missed the deadine.
I never intended it to be this way, but I'm only 3/4 of the way through and the final product may very well be between 5000 and 6000 words.
So far, there are two scenes. The second scene goes into a flashback that explains the MC's story dilemma through an out-of-control conflict with his brother that destroys the relationship he has with his family.
A traditional man who would have never thought of changing his last name under any circumstance is faced with the dilemma of taking his wife's name and disowning his family forever. I am determined more than ever to finish it and post it even though I cannot make the contest.
It's a disappointment for me as I was really hoping to enter the contest, but ran out of time. I really wanted to win. This contest is the reason why I have made a serious commitment to words instead of leaving endless stories in the planning stages.
Next time I will meet the words and the deadline. That is my next goal.
