Just a topic to acknowledge being done and subbed. 

My genre was romance, my action "dyeing hair," and my word was "lower." 

5:55 pm US EST and it's gone! Clap

Good luck everyone. Star

I submitted quite early on; about 3.5 hours after topic assignment but I've just gone in and resubmitted a few minutes ago with a small punctuation change.

My genre was sci-fi, my action was getting blood pressure taken and mu word was work

Just submitted too, I had rom com, lighting a candle, push

I thought of the idea super early today, but I'm not sure how it is. I think I'm happy with it, especially since I kind of dread writing rom com.

Also done! I had comedy/driving over the speed limit/potential.

I'd written a story yesterday that I was pretty happy with, but which was really not a comedy. This morning I tried again and got 90 words. They weren't good words, at all. This afternoon I tried a third time, wrote something which wasn't great, but which had potential (see what I did there?) After some editing I managed to massage it into a story I'm okay sending off. Whew!

Just submitted and now time for a gin before bed I think!

My first ever ghost story and I managed to whack it out in one go - but spent the day tweaking here and there.

Good luck to everyone!

Submitted earlier this afternoon and too anxious to look at it any further.

My genre was fairy tale/and or fantasy. Action was stepping into a puddle and my word was pressure. Probably the smoothest writing experience I've had for a NYC midnight contest so far, but can't tell if it's because of a good prompt or if I'm actually getting better at this whole writing thing.

Submitted my offering a couple of hours ago. So tempting to go back and just check once again that I am happy with it. Bedtime here in the UK, so I shall just leave it...maybe.

Done and submitted my Sci-Fi story. Action was taking pain medication and word was transform. It's gone and forgotten.

I had totally forgotten about the contest until this morning, and had stuff planned all day, so had to write it in kind of a hurry, but was pleased with the result. I had group 109: genre romance, action checking the time, and word circle. First time getting romance, wasn’t as bad as I thought (it helps that it was the 250 word contest and not the 1000 word). Looking forward to reading everyone’s stories!

Done. Group 72 - drama, arrival, eating a piece of candy. 
I wasn't overly chuffed to have got drama for the second time in succession, and I spent most of the day torn between three or four half-ideas, none of which I really liked. But I'm reasonably content with how it turned out in the end.
Good luck everyone.
