So this morning I had the biggest brain fart. I had no idea what triggered it actually. It could have been the thought of adopting/rescuing that has been swirling through my head, *Conrad, don't get a head of yourself... One pretty pony at a time... BUT THEY ARE SOO AMAZING GAAAAHHHH*, or my need to help those who are suffering.. Anyway, I had the most amazing idea for a story...
So I have been writing short stories since I was about 10 years old, and I have written a few longer ones for English, but I have never completed one outside of that. However this morning I was so driven to write this story, but I needed more personality, the I decided to jump onto the forum and make a contest. The Story Idea
There is a young horse woman, who runs a farm, with some horses, chickens, ducks, dogs, boyfriend... You know those type of animals *I so funny at 10am...* She lives in a small, isolated town in outback Queensland where she is a Child Services worker. Pretty plane-jane average Aussie *would have done another country, but I only know Australian culture*.
She has got the "OK" from the bosses in Children Services that her plans for a Child-Horse rehabilitation program have been approved. She has set up a program where troublesome children who have no where else to go come to live at her farm and at the same time, train with horses that have been through the same as they have (mistreated, neglected, forgotten) to team up as horse and rider. In the end there will be a boy and a girl in both English and Western discipline..
This is my best attempt to explain it on two cups of coffee, but you get the general idea... I know in real life this probably wouldn't happen, but this is Conrad's World and she likes to turn bad things to god things
Also growing up in a town where you see a lot of children go through this, you mentally wish that there was something to turn their lives around and open their eyes to a new world. And who doesn't love ponies
So im looking for descriptions for the following characters (please try and make characters different, I'm looking for diversity. Each character is Unique!).... 2 Girls to be in the program 2 Boys to be in the program 2 Horses to be in the program (English) 2 horses to be in the program (Western) 2 trainers Farrier Vet "Big Boss" Various other characters (neighbors, people of the town etc...) Various other animals of the farm A NAME FOR THE FARM!
And if there are any really creative people out there... A plan/design for the farm
I have my own style, and I do not want to restrict my story to just that, I want diversity :)
Entries close on the 25th (not long I know, but after that I will be bombarded with TAFE)
Thank you all who enter
