Horror, drinking coffee, and rotten. I submitted mine way early since I had to work the rest of the day. I'm crossing my fingers!

These boards are SUPER quiet today / tonight. I'm struggling A LOT with this one.

suspense-thriller / using an umbrella / absent

I have two stories drafted. I don't like either. And both are too long. 

I'm still in on both microfiction and flash fiction as of now, but this has been the most difficult prompt I've gotten so far. I think I'll probably be out of microfiction after this round. :-(

Ugh, ugh, ugh, I got romance!!! After my completely unexpected success in round 1, I fear this is the end of my microfiction journey...

Growing fonder of one of my stories, but it's still approximately 25 words long and I don't know what else to cut. And I'm exhausted. And I hope it's suspense/thriller enough, but it really might not be. However, there's not really time to start over so ...

Hey there, Heat Mate! :)
Looks like we're in the same group this round.

Are you planning on posting your story?

Definitely. You?

And... story is submitted. Don't know if I like it or not. Don't know if it's truly thriller/suspense or not. But it's submitted. Now, off to bed!

Congrats on getting it in. And try not to feel too bad - I think we all have similar reactions to our pieces, no matter how long we've been doing this. :) Get some sleep. You earned it.
