Why are you participating in these forums? To be unrelentingly contentious toward some very kind people? In multiple threads now you've had some sort of issue, and really seem to enjoy talking down to people. Have a glass of wine or something. We're all friends here. Beer

Have a glass of wine and take it like a writer.

Enjoyed the blood drive/hot choc/comedy prompt. My first time entering. Glad I didn't get political satire though!

I had horror for the first round too and am a newbie, so I've had these exact same sentiments XD Hope I get a chance in round 2 to show that I'm not some twisted psyco :P

My first time doing this too, and also my first post here. With luck I've got it right. 

I was away at cub camp (I'm a cub scout leader) so the story was written in a sleep deprived daze up against the deadline. I noticed on re-reading that I'd managed to change one of the character's name's half way through the story! Not a main character, just one of the supporting cast. 

I was in Group 2, we had romance / a harbour / a bandage. I've never written romance before, and I don't read them either. No idea how horrible the story is going to be.

you did fine. :)  do be sure to add that to the title/synopsis thread too!  

One of the great things about this contest is that it will force you out of your comfort zone. Writing what we always write isn't nearly the stretch of our skills that writing something we don't even read is.  You will walk away a better writer - even if you hate your romance and never do it again - because it forces you to focus on the basics. :)

James-

Aha! Finally, another Group 2-'er! I'm in the same boat as you... total newbie to this. Was also WAY outside my comfort zone writing a romance. But in the end, I landed with something that made me smile... so I consider that a success!
