Good luck and good words today, everyone!

Same here. I agree, looks like quite a good set of prompts. Never done Ghost Story so looking forward to this one. Good luck!

Me three... lots of 7's representing.

Ooh.. I'm in your group!  I've never had Hist Fiction before and am a little daunted. I've gone with the first idea that came into my head as I can't shake it.  Good luck!

I got drama - washing a window - beauty. Just finished up. I'm roughly 35% happy with what I came up with, but I've got a commitment that I really can't miss for the rest of the day so it'll have to do. Sooo not looking forward to what the judges say about this one LOL

Group 5: ghost story, setting off a smoke detector, rumor. 
The prompts for micro seem less sadistic than the other competitions.

Ghost story (again!!!), Setting off a smoke detector, rumor. Think I have an idea. I should be able to nail ghost story by now since 90 percent of the time that's what I get.

I'm in your group! I'm seriously struggling. I think because my mind can go 100 different ways and I can't figure out which direction I want to take it. I've already attempted a draft early this morning and it isn't working. Back to square one Pinch Good luck!!

Well, I got Suspense. Again. 
Because in the last three years (in FF, SS, and now MF), all NYCM has given me is Suspense (5 times), Comedy (4), and Ghost Story (4). Usually twice within the same competition, sometimes twice in a row.

I’m there in the group with both of you ... came up with my idea before I went to sleep last night, and I still like it this morning... even though it may be a little “out there...”  

Good luck to us all!🤞🏻

Now can you come up with one for me? I’m struggling, everything seems trite.
Goodluck groupmate! Can’t wait to read your story 😊😊
