comment Can anyone think of books that contain two separate stories or two very different perspectives on the same story being told together?
@Keobooks The point I'm trying to make is that myths are usually short and they are meant to be part of the setting of the story. It would be fine if, say, the main story was introduced by the short myth, or if each chapter contained a brief introductory sentence or two that was the storyteller telling the myth. But if the myth version is as long as the true version, it competes with the reader's attention. It's not really providing any value to the reader or to the people in the "present" who are hearing the story told. The reader doesn't want to keep reading the same story over and over.

comment Is trying to write an entire novel in one month possible?
Considering that this program has been held for many years, and many people complete it each year, I have to wonder why you would think it'd be impossible.
