Just finished the first draft of my first novel, so I really need a change of pace. Want to see if I can tell a story in .025K instead of 135K. Big smile

I've entered - its going to be tricky! Every single word will be important. And it's a bit cheaper than the other competitions.

I signed up for this and for the next YeahWrite contest yesterday, which means my October is looking very contest heavy, since I'm also doing the Short Screenplay. Good times!

It’s interesting to me that the prizes are less for shorter works. Not that any of us do this for the money, but writing something succinct in 250 words is so hard.... especially with THREE given prompts. I probably will join in for the hell of it, but am not sure how I’ll feel about it once prompts drop. 250 words is aoooooo little....but I love NYCM.... and 2 rounds, so hey, why not?

Noop - I'll be on a plane for the first quarter of the first challenge. I have a hunch I won't alight from an international flight fresh and inspired to write. Hopefully they do this one again - sounds like a lot of fun. Good luck all!

I'm in! Guess there won't be time for betas? Either way, should be a fun challenge :-)

Nope. Flash is bad enough. 250 barely qualifies as a story.

Congratulations on finishing your novel!!! :)
It's not easy, getting to those two amazing words -- THE END.
What kind of book is it?

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.
