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.
Stephen, you must come! I can’t imagine this contest without you! 


I'm in.

Of course I'm editing/designing a full-length book and writing a long form essay and a short story, both due this weekend for a contest. But I finished two book reviews, finished reading five books, and completed a short form essay this last weekend. What is one more little thing?
Terrific news! I was just thinking about you last night, Stephen, haven't heard a peep for a long time. Glad to know it's because you're busy doing productive writing stuff. Can't wait to see your weekend's flash creation :)

Hiya! Back for my 2nd NYC midnight competition! I participated in flash fic 2018.  I was hoping to do the SSC this year but I was busy having a baby!  Excited for the weekend 😊

Back home today after a business trip to the Midwest, which I left for a reason.  If I needed the reminder it hit me the moment I walked off the airplane.  At least I got to visit Habu 964 and read a book.  The latter is pretty normal for a business trip.

A real book, with ink on paper pages.  People look at me funny when I read those on airplanes, but I still like the feel of a book in hand as opposed to the alternative.

All set to fall on my face in Round 1, which is also normal.  Some day I'll look up the definition of "tense", because it seems to elude me.

Me: "Okay, so I'm scheduled to work Friday and Saturday, that's fine, lots of time, oodles of time. It's just Flash." 

My e-mail: "Remember, folks who preregistered months ago and forgot, July 13th is our Summer 24-Hour Fiction Contest! Check at noon central for the prompt!"

Me: ".....well crap."

I’m in for a second year. It was a gas last time. I found out exactly what I did wrong in the first story, and of course didn’t fix it in the 2nd story. 
Although I never win any contests, it’s still a gas. You know your writing is bad when the story you wrote based on very specific criteria for a work newsletter (which I did perfectly) is denied! But who cares? I love writing, no matter how good or bad it is.
I’m ready this time.
But no sci fi! Please no sci fi! I think I could write most others. But no sci fi!

The second contest is way easier, your brain is already morphing into a prompt machine.  Have fun!
