Goodness! Did we forget to post a titles thread?

Drop your titles and the first 3 words of your micro. Bonus points for letting us know what genre you ended up choosing!

Can't wait to start reading all your tiny stories!

Was wondering what happened! 😅

For genre: I ended up with *very light* fantasy, edging into drama.

Scapegoat

I come prepared


My working title was 'Unbearable'. I liked it, but it contained a pun which would have felt really mismatched to the story.

Edit: oops, first three words, not first line. Well, nothing too revealing here.

I went for 100%  drama this time x) usually (i.e. four of the five times I've been in the finals lol) I do something with an SFF flavor but decided to shake it up this time around.

I'm SO excited to read everyone's stories!

No matter how I tried, no matter the fact that I feel like NYCm judges most often reward feely drama in the finals, I ended up with horror. However, I hope that the dark humanity in it resonates with the readers...

Was wondering if we would do this. Here's mine:

Title: Not Yet

First three words: We used to

Genre: mostly drama with a slight dash of romance. 

It ... triggers a majority of the content warnings. I think it's easier to list the ones I won't need to warn about though some are by implication rather than express. I'm actually wondering if I will hit a record for most crammed into 250 words.

First 3 words: At the far...

I know that judges tend to go from drama in the final round, but I wanted to do something ME, which means I ended up slightly horror, slightly fantasy, all me.
