This was my first 250 word challenge and I absolutely loved it. I was given the following prompts:

Romance / playing a sport / note

I've never written romance before and I struggled initially to think of a plot good enough to write about but one where I could sum up in such a small word count. I actually quite pleased with how it came out.

What prompts did everyone else get?

This was my first 250 word challenge as well!

I got Comedy / Melting Cheese / Mill

I laughed at the idea I came up with, laughed writing it and laugh now thinking about it.  I hope everyone else finds it funny!

A comedy about melting cheese sounds very funny! Glad you enjoyed writing it, I'd love to read it :)

I've just submitted. I had ghost story/running through a forest/guide. I don't know how I feel, I find these challenges unbelievably frustrating but I'm also slightly addicted to the rush.

Just to add that I'm not that sure about my story this time but I loved the one I submitted for my first 250 word challenge and that only got an HM, whereas I got all the way to the final of the FFC with stories I wasn't sure about, so what do I know?

I've also never made it past round 1 of the 250, though I've made it to the finals of longer stories three times. Still figuring out the very short form I guess 😕

I also just submitted, and I like my story, loved the prompts.

I'm group 91 - Fantasy/Fairy Tale; hugging; "image"

(I hope that describing people as "embracing" is enough to meet the hugging prompt... the word "hug" didn't fit with the vibe I was going for.)

Fingers crossed for us to get through R1 this time!

I got Hist Fiction (which I've been dreading), Boxing and Quest.

I did not get sleep, disappearing down a reseach wormhole through the wee hours, determined to at least wake up with a completed draft that didn't make me wince. Haha.

Submitted and revised - now I'm going to nap.

I just submitted too. I had the prompts drama/signing an autograph/side

Had fun coming up with my story idea and have been revising it since writing it this morning. Didn't realize that everyone does not advance to the next to challenges. Hope I get to continue. I had a lot of fun doing this challenge. Hope everyone enjoys the story I ended up creating.  Good luck to everyone!

This is my 3rd year! I just submitted.
Ghost story, skin, asking for forgiveness. My fingers are crossed!
