I forgot my heat number but my prompt is Spy, Science Fair, an Imposter

I kind of had a premonition I'd get Spy.... so that's cool. I'm excited to get a new genre this time around.

I got 38 - Action/Adventure, incorrigible, a woodcutter.

I've never written action/adventure before but I have had almost no sleep for 3 days so I'm going back to bed.  Im too tired to know what incorrigible means and am hopeful inspiration will strike when I sleep.

I got group 16
spy/a science fair/an imposter.

Honestly pretty disappointed, I had spy in the first round. I'm new to this comp but I kind of assumed they'd try and give everyone a new genre. 

Pffff, never mind. It is not political satire and for this I am grateful.

Bad luck. With the groups being randomly assigned it's bound to happen to a few people, though.

You're right. And hey, now I have already written one, which is a better position than I was in in January!

Group 5. Suspense, a curator, a diploma.

Good luck to everyone moving forward. I'm certainly going to need it!

Uggghhhh....

Comedy / hand-me-down / a stepsister

I find anything that has to intentionally be comedic very difficult to do. So not too happy about it. Very stressed out about a work project right now and not feeling particularly cheery. Hope I end up submitting!

Where is the genre guide saved? I see people referring to it often, but I haven't been able to locate it.

I got Action Adventure / Do-Over / Lackey

Pretty middling prompt for me. It is not a genre that I would choose, but it's not one that I dread trying. The prompt hasn't inspired me as of yet, but at least I feel that these are three elements which easily fit together.
