That's cool! Gotta say the final stories are so impressive and so different. I have no idea what will win or place because it's such an impressive group. I can think easily of ten off the top of my head that are worthy. And the location was a bitch. This is my first time doing these, and I'm glad I didn't have any clue how great the competition was going to be. Looking back on my first story, if I had known the caliber of writer, I might have been simply unable to actually write or submit...

So many top 10 worthy! ...and those are only the ones we saw! I think roughly half put something up on the forum, but then you've got all those other writers who sweated it out with the rest of us but didn't post. Which heightens the anxiety further. So many good pieces *here* and so many others *not here* - likely to be incredible, too.  

{{shudder}} 

We all have a 1 in 75 chance (or maybe slightly better odds if someone bailed). I'm still liking Schroedinger's Contest at this point. The alternate pocket of time, now, where we've all simultaneously won.

And 100% with you on the dream prompt. My brain hurt, for days, after I submitted. I always have that moment where I submit and go, 'wow, that wasn't half bad.' And then I read what others have posted and have that 'oh god what did I do,' moment. It's part of the torture that especially comes with a final round.

This year's Flash was my first time entering the NYC Midnight challenge. I'm in the 3rd round of the Short Screenplay, and we'll find out where tonight in the 250. I've also entered the Short Story. 

The more stories I read posted here in the forums, the more inspired I am to enter every competition. It's daunting to experience the talent of the finalists, but only makes me push myself to be among them. I'm so happy I discovered this competition.

Didn’t make it to the finals but still anxious to see the results.  I would think they’d come out before the R1 250.  Milking both announcements!

My first too! Entered this, the 250 and the screenplay, which for me was the most challenging simply because it seems to require very different tools. I learned a ton, especially in Beta on the screenplay thing, and though both efforts got points, I did not make the next round. And I am so relieved!!! I just don't think I could have done it. I really needed a break before the short story one.
