Finalist two years in a row, 11th place overall the first time.  The year before that I pulled "Fairy Tale" and I bombed in the first round. HATE that genre, and just have zero interest -- it's literally the only one I don't like.

And... I get it this year again. How absurd.

Nope.  Good luck, everyone.

Spy is my fairy tale. Got it 4 times and ditched it for one of them.

I dropped out of the short story comp due to "crime caper"...hate that due to the set up you have to do for it.  Not my thing for a short story.

Yeah, I got crime caper this time - not sure I'll end up submitting, but as always, it's not the end of the world not to (except it's too bad to be out the money!)

You know, it might be a good idea to give everyone a choice of two sets of prompts?

I would love that idea! I struggle so much with my prompts each time and I suspect having a choice would make one of them automatically feel better than the other lol.
