Did anyone else really biff this one? Mine is so terrible that I honestly don't even want to post it in the review thread or even copy/paste my synopsis. It has to do with "luxury death tourism." Sleepy

I was deleting whole chunks of text literally seconds before 11:59, didn't even do a final re-read. 

Oh well, I learned a valuable lesson about being too ambitious plot-wise in <1,500 words. And I am proud of myself for actually getting something in!

Solace and Solstice

 An undertaker searches for meaning in his demanding life on an island where one person dies each morning.

Yeah I feel pretty much the same. I think it's my weakest offering so far, which doesn't bode well!

We all had the 24 hour crunch! 

 I'm fairly sure none of these will be our best work, but they'll still be great to read. I hope as many post as possible.

I was definitely feeling burned out near the end. I put mine in probably 40 minutes before it was due, without a final proofread. It's not my best work but I think almost everyone feels that way.
