The unstoppable mount

I'm there I think!

Yay! I mean Jess Day references it in a New Girl episode so it's not so niche that it's completely unheard of... I hope!

“I’m a comma




Hmmm, despite first appearances, it wasn’t a comedy 😂

I assume we don't post our whole 100 word stories yet? My first crack at the comp / the forum and I'm not sure of the protocols :)

Title: Filming Armageddon
First three: "Have words with..."

In the last round I got historical fiction as the genre and my heart sank. Then the googling began and it got interesting... This time, on the morning I got the Final prompts, I happened to see a video on Twitter about underwater nuclear tests in 1958 and - boom - turns out I write historical fiction now! LOL

Good luck to everyone. It's been a great ride. Now we're flying blind through that final cloud; all we can do is wonder what way up we'll be when we come out the other side!

Yes!! We can’t post our full stories to the forum until we get an official confirmation email from NYC Midnight (not the Submittable we one got last night), which should come on Tuesday by midnight!

Re: Your title and first three words, isn’t it amazing what these competitions do to us? LOL My first draft ended up being a romance piece when I’m not a huge fan of writing that genre, either! What I submitted ended up being a drama?? I guess?? Since we weren’t made to stick with a genre, I felt like it didn’t fulfill any super well, but drama was the closest! Can’t wait to see
Your full story in a couple of days!

Glad I'm not the only one who ended up writing Historical Fiction despite not being their normal thing. Normally I'm Women's Fiction/Speculative so this was rather a departure.
