Who are the main characters? Michaela Shane, a harried stay-at-home mom; her husband Brian; her first love Taylor.

What is the story about? Michaela's disenchantment with her life, and how her life would have been drastically different if she and Taylor had never gone their separate ways.

What has happened in the story before this scene began? Michaela dropped her two sons off at school, and went to the mall to pick up a birthday present for her sister-in-law. While there, as she always does, she tosses a penny into the wishing well, asking for a different life. The next morning, she wakes up, and instead of kids and pancakes, there's a wedding dress and Taylor waiting for her.

What will happen afterwards? She'll try and figure out just what the hell is going on, and why her friends and family aren't at the wedding site.

Don’t freak out. Don’t panic. Don’t freak out. Don’t panic.

Stopping mid eyelash curl, Janie turned and looked at her. “She’s panicking!”

There was a flurry of activity as tulle covered bridesmaids--strangers--descended on her. They eased her back into the chair, trying to be soothing but instead sounding like an overexcited gaggle of geese. Janie pushed her way to the front of the group and knelt in front of her. “Michaela, it’s okay, honey. Just breathe. This is the day you’ve waited your whole life for. Everything’s going to be perfect.”

She shook her head. “This isn’t my life. My life is backpacks and mud covered little boys and Hamburger Helper.”

Janie quickly replaced the glass of water one of the girls had given Michaela with an amber colored liquid. “You obviously need something stronger than that, hon.”

Write 100 Words of the Scene:“Anne…” The young woman was sobbing now, painfully aware of having messed up.

“Mel, it’ll be okay sweetheart…”

“He said… he loved me.”

“Maybe he did in his way…”

“Anne, I…”

“You can talk it through later, once we get you home.” Anne had glanced at Zach during this exchange, glad of a strong male friend that could perhaps make this all seem less of a stress once she got home to their apartment, right now she needed that thought.

“Anne, no…”

“Melinda, don’t fight me.”

“You should go home… with Zach.” The blonde woman was feisty now but she seemed to also cling to Anne’s hands.

“No Mel, I can go home once I see you safe.”

It was here; the day the Elinor hadn't let herself dream of. She was marrying Edward!

"Elinor! You must come outside!" Marget called from the door.

"Don't be a goose!" Marieann said. "She's in her dress, she can't go traipsing after you."

Margret looked so sad, "Please, Elinor?"

Elinor stood up. "If I can go outside to where the alter is, then I can go out to see whatever it is that Marget has done."

The three sisters made their way out the back door, Margret leading the way.

"I did it all by my self!" Margret said proudly.

Elinor looked at the large "Congratulations!" mowed into the grass of the field and broke out in laughter.

Who are the main characters? Abby and Greg, plus a plethora of friends, family and coworkers

What is the story about? The drama of getting married while trying to shuffle work, fighting friends and crazy family

What has happened in the story before this scene began? The company-making project went to hell, the best man decided he was madly in love with the bridesmaid -who just happens to be the groom's little sister- and the moms were arguing over the proper honeymoon location. Then the power went out in the church, which sent the bride outside to scream.

What will happen afterwards? Greg will find Abby and ask if they can just run away. The wedding will take place outside... and it will start raining just before the "I do"s. And no one has told the happy couple that the flight was cancelled due to a broken plane.

Write 100 111 Words of the Scene:
It was supposed to be a simple little thing, getting married. Abby loved Greg; Greg loved Abby. They were quite content to head down to the courthouse with their best friends in tow – actually, they'd have been just fine simply grabbing two random strangers off the street – and getting it over with.

The ceremony wasn't why they were getting married, after all. But Greg's mother loved a party; and Abby's mother had to show up Georgette Marks, who'd thrown a half-million dollar wedding for her daughter, Bridget.

The only thing that was perfect about the whole affair was the bouquet, which Abby's second-graders had made for her out of tissue paper.

Jenna put her head in her hand, and sighed. Mina thought maybe she had gone too far. Maybe. "Couldn't you for once not be selfish?" her mother asked her.

Mina stared staunchly at her. She wasn't going to listen - no, Jenna was WRONG - it was her mother who was the one who was selfish, definitely not Mina.
