Done -- and I have a lot of anxiety because it's a genre with which I don't have much comfort. I am hoping my interpretation of it is at least recognized as creative and engaging.Enable GingerCannot connect to Ginger Check your internet connection

Hey, just wanted to thank everyone who took the time to reassure me the rules of the word assignment and save me from a needless DQ! It ended up being a quick and painless fix to change "raspberries" to "berry", and my story has been resubmitted. 

I appreciate the quick and honest advice on the issue. Thank you very much!

I did it! I have not been so nervous about something in a long time. I suppose that means it was a good thing I gave this a go.

My genre was romance (yikes- about the most challenging you could pick for me), my action was "opening a window" and my word was "change."

Fun challenge. Ended up with precisely 250 words.

I really hope they like it!
...yes and...
I love feedback! Please read my round 1 story titled Me

Done and dusted.

I got Historical Fiction
action:Sweating
word: Sight

It ended up being Historical, but not exactly fiction: it is actually family history, but with liberties taken since I only know the main points.

Well done! Agree that the nervous energy was definitely a good sign.

My genre was comedy, my action was ordering from a drive-thru, and my word was rich.

I don't feel great about it, but it's in. Of course, I felt pretty good about previous entries and went nowhere fast, so maybe not feeling good is a positive sign.

We'll see how it goes!

Just finished.
It's my first comedy story, and at first I was glad of the genre, but... tell a joke, be funny in 250 words or less. In 24 hours. With "using a spray paint" and "born". Go.
Nasty.

Best of luck, everyone!

Ghost story, changing a lightbulb, trap...

And now I've totally creeped myself out with spooky research and late-night writing.
