Hello hello! Just wanted to offer greetings and disclose that this is my first writing contest and I'm absolutely petrified (yet excited) haha. Everyone I know is appalled by the fact that my birthday weekend will be spent in feverish writing and self-doubt, as opposed to theoretical overindulgence and celebration. Considering the latter never, ever seems to happen on my birthday? Yeah, I'm good with this.

It’s your birthday, do what you want! It’s is your birthday present to yourself. Happy birthday, and good luck!

This is going to be my first contest. I'm so excited to dive in and start writing.
 
Cons:
I am not at all familiar with a couple of the genres so I'm giving myself a crash course today and tomorrow.
I have a full work shift on Saturday so I feel like I will be behind right from the beginning.
 
Pros:
I work well under pressure and it's usually when I produce my best work.
I love writing and I can't wait to see the prompt info.
 
Wishing you the best of luck fellow writers!

I'm not doing Flash this time, but wanted to say good luck to all who are entering, especially those for whom it's your first contest here! It's a lot of pressure but so rewarding.

I just received an email about registering today, the last day available to sign up! I don't even have time to be appropriately nervous, insecure and filled with regret about joining. Or buy snacks! :)
 
See y'all at midnight tomorrow.

Oi. I'm new. I've known about the contest for almost a month and a half - even planned to register a *long* time ago. Never actually got around to it until just now. This bodes well. LOL

My only saving grace right now is that I've done flash fiction before. In every other respect I'm a fish in a bathtub and the drain's open. Good luck everyone! Do better than me, please.
