I have wanted to enter this challenge for so long and I am finally here.  This is the first time writing a short and I've never written a fairy tale, so of course that was my assigned genre.  I guess that is the challenge part, right? It was fun and this is shaping up to be all I had hoped for.  I love the supportive forum and look forward to reading others' work.



I remember my first contest here, anywhere actually, I got ghost story.
I had never even considered a ghost story and I was lost, lol. My brain
just could not get it wrapped around it, finally came up with something 
in the last 24 hours and managed to submit. I got an honorable mention
out of it, and that was it, addicted! Sure gives you a great feeling of 
accomplishment, eh. I had not joined the forums at that time so did not
partake in the good part. The best part is the tackling of bad prompts gets 
easier with every contest as NYCM completes the changing of your brain 
chemistry in their quest for world domination!

PS my first was in short story

Congratulations!  

My first time here too, and I am surprised that I placed. Fifteenth in group 32. I’m thrilled and excited for the next challenge.
