Thank you so much! I sent you a PM.

I have family obligations the rest of the day, so I just submitted.  My story is a romance, which isn't what I normally write, and it isn't my best work.  But it is the story that came to me in the first five minutes after seeing the prompt and I couldn't get it out of my head no matter how hard I tried to write something different.  

Good luck to everybody!

@kayelizarod - You’ll get there! I much prefer having the genre assigned as well! 

@FireHorse - Considering the sheer number of entrants, not to mention the quality of writing I’ve seen, I have zero expectations of placing. As a consequence, I’m much more relaxed than in previous rounds. 

@Katmiller - I keep hoping that some benevolent beta reader (not in the competition) will offer their services! 

Yeah, where are those beta readers? I need a fresh eye.

Just a PSA: Don't forget to include "lift" in your story. I almost edited my assigned word out once. NO DQs!
