after ignoring the open mike 2007 competition for weeks, i have finally decided to partake. with a due date of 15th of july, this decision was reached just in time. i have been contemplating all sorts of story ideas, but i think i'll go with one i've had for a while now - in fact one that could have just as well become the theme of the novel i'm [NOT] working on right now. i had already begun to research that certain topic back in march and was clever enough to bring my notes here to berlin with me. as yet i haven't decided on anything apart from the topic really, but as last year's winning texts were all only around four pages long, i'll probably just start and see where i'll end. if the worst comes to the worst, i would still have enough time to start over. anyone else partaking out there?
