Hey Max, what happens if we don't manage to submit anything? Do we still get to judge other submissions, or are we just out? 

Hi, sorry just seeing this now. I keep forgetting about this thread because NYCM tucked it away in the dark Everything Else place :( haha

Unfortunately, if you don't have a story in the battle, then you aren't assigned duels. You should try to submit something! You don't have to share it in the Debrief Forums after if you're not proud of it, and the feedback might still be helpful (regardless of how proud you are of the work).

Thanks, Max! I was ready to call it quits but I managed to submit something anyway. I think my process for writing contests just goes: 

Get prompts
Get idea
Procrastinate
Start writing
Despair
Seriously consider quitting (the contest and writing in general)
Snack
Just write the damn thing

Looking forward to the duels!

LOL Snacks make everything better! The key has always been snacks. Haha love this list by the way. You should write a blog about the steps for the despair of writing. I think it would do well :)

You usually write a pretty damn good thing every time, so I'm glad to see you ended up submitting something for this Writing Battles! :)
