Ooo, so tempting! I'll have to check dates since I have some work travel coming up, but if available, I'm in. Microfiction intrigues me, have only tried it once or twice. I think it would be good for writers like me, who like to use twenty words where three or four would do.
Thanks for the heads up, Steph!

$25 to write a 250-word story, with the overwhelming likelihood of it ending there doesn't seem as enticing to me.

Yeah, but if you post on FB or Twitter, it's only $20 with the $5-off code!! Smile

Yep. I'm definitely addicted, and not at all ashamed to say so. LOL
Heck yeah, count me in! :)

I'm in! I did the Flash Fiction last year but couldn't this year and was bummed!

I'm looking to try to do some practice genre/action/words - any idea what kinds of "actions" they might provide? Could it be anything?

I didn't even hesitate, or look at the price or anything, I just signed up this afternoon the moment that I learned this thing existed.
I'm also doing the Short Screenplay for the first time the following week.
This means that I'll be writing for NYCM 3 out of the next 4 weekends.
Well, it keeps me off the streets, anyway.
