I was on the fence for a while, but a half dozen of my friends are going for it so I'm throwing my hat in as well. My only paid published work is a micro-fiction story, so I'm feeling optimistic! :) Good luck, all!

I don't think I'm going to enter... I've an orchestra concert that day which means I'll be away from the house involved with rehearsing and performing from say 1pm to 10.30 or 11pm... and it is always physically exhausting.. plus I have a couple of students that morning too. We don't get the prompts til 5am here so I def won't be able to start it on the Friday night. 
But on the other hand it's only 250 words..... hmm, I'm going to sleep on it. Will only enter if I feel the urge because those orchestra days really are tiring!

I'm in! Had to miss FF due to lack of $$, but I can do this one. I have written a 75-word story every month for 9 1/2 years, for my SFF forum's challenges, and quite a number of 300-word stories for the quarterly one for 8 1/2 years, so I'm primed. LOL

Bring it on!

Now to go and find out what genres got removed, as mentioned above....

The second round falls on the night of an out-of-town concert we're attending. I don't usually have much luck writing in hotel rooms, so of course I'm signing up.

That’s two weeks before my wedding. Probably not. But if it’s around next year....

Im actually really excited for this! I think its going to be a lot of fun and I'm really interested to see where my favorite forum posters will take their stories with such a restrictive word limit. Im glad they got rid of a couple of the genres though, as certain genre assignments would be impossible for micro.
