Group 1, here! This was... fun? Different? It feels like we don'T have as much freedom vis à vis our prompts, but since we're free to pick the genre, it sort of makes up for it, I guess.

The best part is the TWO WEEKS of waiting, instead of two months. But I guess it comes with the lesser number of entrants... 

Can't wait to see if I make it through! I hope to see all of you down the road to R2! Cool

Group 1 also. I felt like that was a lot harder to accomplish, and I felt I accomplished it less successfully. I wonder if it's because there was no assigned genre, so I felt adrift. I'm not sure what genre I ended up writing in :P
 
The two week wait time is nice. I don't suspect I'll advance in that contest, just wasn't very happy with my entry. But...who knows?
 
I am starting to have bad dreams about both these competitions; starting to get them mixed up. Last night I had a dream about the YeahWrite! competition, except it must've really ben the NYC midnight one, because I dreamt that I got a 0 for my second entry because they said they never got it :P The stress dreams are beginning!

I had that recurring dream where I'm back in the college dorms again. What does it all mean?

Yeah... I felt that this was a lot harder too... because it was so oddly specific. But I got something done that I don't totally hate. There's a glimmer of something there, at least... and am thinking it could be a bigger story if I wanted to flesh it out. We'll see, though. Am also happy about the two-week wait time. 

Am doing Fiction War again THIS weekend. My wife is starting to think that this is a thing with me. :)

Am clearly a glutton for punishment... and am getting addicted to these timed competitions. Have any of you found any others like these that you've enjoyed?
