Provocative, eh? :)

So, as a loser, here's what I'm gonna do. I'm going to assign myself to a group -- I choose 10 because I'm pretty sure there will be a Group 10 -- and play along, because it's fun. I thought I'd say so here, lest anyone else thinks that would be a good way to burn a hole in their weekend and hadn't thought of it.

Best wishes to you all. And in the inimitable words of Taylor Swift (her writers??), "Shake it off."

Great idea :-)

Though there is a “literary taxidermy” competition on the go elsewhere if you feel you need to give something a stuffing :-D

Hey there, fellow loser =D 

That sounds like good fun, and certainly more productive than anything else I would have done this weekend. I'm gonna hop on board and go for group 6.

Thanks for the good idea!

If we’re random I choose 5 but can I cheat and pick the first horror group because I don’t want to write a horror? Makes sense in my head!

I bombed out, as well, but I decided earlier in the week to select a story project to work on this weekend so that if I bombed, I would still have some writing on deck. I'm going to use this weekend to knock out an entry for Havok:


good luck to all! Keep writing and submitting; this is only one contest. there are a lot of other opportunities out there!

Just means more time to focus on my novel (which happens to be an expansion of last year's Round 1 Short Story). :)

Hey!  I'm the only Random here!

Go for something completely out of your comfort zone, then post it for comments.  Do that enough and you can handle whatever gets thrown at you.

As an Honorable Mention loser, I pick heat #3 as my next faux submission. Eh, there's always next year!
