So in!
Was pretty worried, as I've got a high school reunion in July and some work travel in August, September, and October. Turns out, none of them overlap with competition weekends so lucked out there!
At least we're guaranteed two rounds - I'm thinking SSC just isn't for me, as I always get booted after round one.

Haha.  You and me both!  But I do enjoy the SSC.

I wish it didn't take them ages to judge each round! I'm discouraged by how point A to point B is two months, point B to point C is two months, and then... well, historically I get eliminated. LOL

But you got some great feedback from readers and judges for your round 1 story - please don't give up! At least there is peer feedback here and the work doesn't just disappear into a black hole of imagined disapproval (says she after failing to get anywhere, not even a mention, on several entries submitted to a Writer's Forum flash comp).

Flash is my favorite, so of course I'm back.

And I'm eternally grateful to the family member who decided not to invite kids to their wedding during Flash weekend. Hubby will be going solo and I... well, I'll be here. While the kids are playing Fortnite.

Flash Fiction 2018 was my first NYCM, first competition, and first story as an adult! I can’t wait to do it again.

I haven't signed up yet. But I should.

FF2013 was my first entry, and while I didn't make it past the first round, I got hooked. Not because of the writing (which I admit was a good push to me to get 'er done), but because of the friendships here.
