I'm in group 17, rom-com, drinking a milkshake, "wild".

This is the earliest I've ever finished and submitted for NYCM across various challenges for the past 4 years, AND this is the first time I had enough time to do beta swaps, I'm so proud of myself!! (I'm usually editing in a craze and submitting with like 2 minutes to spare)

And even though I got the dreaded rom-com genre (my least favorite, I'd prefer political satire over that), I actually had a blast. I'm so grateful to all my beta readers.

I can't wait to read everyone's stories!

Uncharacteristically submitted with a little time to spare.

Genre: Drama. Action: An eye examination. Word: everything.

Good luck to all!

Happily submitted with ~30 minutes to spare, which is rare for me in any facet of life. 

Group 106 - Action and/or Adventure / taking a deep breath / mother

What a great learning exercise this was... I often try to make things too complicated for 1000 or no word limits. Boy was this hard to do in 250.

Will return all reads!

Submitted my final version. 

I drew historical fiction/ eating corn on the cob/ "known". Had to completely abandon my first attempt:

Quote A dog walked into a bar and noticed, upon entering, that people were eating corn on the cob.
"I'll have what they're having," the dog said.
"We don't serve dogs here," the barman replied.
The dog growled, "I've never known such discrimination in all my life. Get wrekt scrub."
Still, the barman refused and chased the dog from the establishment.
And that dog? He was none other than the 16th President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln.

I know what you are thinking: Why change it? It's flawless. Well, a few reasons:
1) We'd know how that dog's story ends, and that's just too sad.
2) I don't want to poison the public against people in the service industry. They put up with enough as it is.
3) After conducting further research, it turns out dogs weren't even invented until 1908.

First post here. Newb alert. Also my first ever fiction comp. Was good fun. Great to force the ol' gray matter to shift down a couple gears. 

My assignment:
  • Ghost Story
  • Word = move
  • Action = Ripping a page out of a book

Aww thank you so much! Embarrassed

My second round flash fiction this summer was extremely and uncharacteristically stressful and so I'm elated that I had so much fun. I hope you had fun too and good luck to you, I'm noting your username so I can look up your story when we're allowed to post! Tongue

I had group 1 - Rom Com, Shiny and making a bed. I know a lot of people hated getting rom com but I really dug into it. I hope it gets good marks. 

Good luck to everyone! 

I love the opportunity to use my right brain!

We are in the same group! Good luck. 😊
