My short story is due on Tuesday at 12pm sharp. So far, my main character as well as the story line have changed three times.
I've settled on a 32-year-old schizophrenic mother who cannot control her illness. She ends up killing her mother and deceiving her 7-year-old son who she wanted to desperately protect. It's actually inspired by a true story. The poor boy is now in foster care. The mother, in jail. And the grand-mother hospitalized.
