Understand that I am not shy about killing children in fiction. I've done it more than once.
That being said, I don't want to write a story where the focus
is dead babies. In particular, I don't want to write a story wherein a bad guy causes a miscarriage
with a demon civet
. I don't have the chops or the inclination to write that in 4000 words and actually do justice to the idea and the emotional fallout.
So, I guess that means I'm hunting another plotline for this story. And I'd better hurry, because the deadline is the 31st.
I would really like to write something funny for it.
