SSC was my first contest like this. The shorter word count for the Flash does seem a bit daunting to me, but I'm so excited to get started.

Have fun with it, and BE YOU. You got this!

Crap! I'm so used to being on West coast time and getting prompts at 9:00, I forgot that I'm on East coast time right now and have to wait until midnight.

I feel sort of stupid, but mostly dreading the long wait.

Yes.

FW has a 1000-word cap. I thought it was going to be impossible, but actually, it made everything tighter. You can't waste words. Also having only two days and MORE words would seem really, really daunting.
