My 'suspense' is pretty much a horror. Hopefully they'll take a loose approach to the definitions... I found 'suspense' so hard to work out. The definition is virtually the same as Thriller and they give 'Silence of the Lambs' as an example!

Thanks for the votes of confidence. I always seem to get that one judge. You know the one. :-)

Yeah... but they'll complain regardless, so might as well enjoy your own story, I say. Smile

That I'm looking forward to reading... does that make them smoked pork? LOL

I ended up writing a space drama. Long live the mash up.

Can't believe you didn't get a ghost story! Haha.

I wrote a space drama last year and did quite well with it, so I'm a fan of that plan (natch). Looking forward to reading yours and many others!

All fairy tales are fantasy while not all fantasy is a fairy tale.  I researched this point while writing my story which is supposed to be in the fantasy genre but leans a bit more toward a fairy tale.  BAH  I care not.  

It is my experience that if they like your story you can get away with just about anything, and if they don't like your story they will ding you to death.  But seriously, I doubt you will be dinged for this.

I literally did a happy dance when I read the prompts and didn't see ghost story. My dog thought I was a nutter... lol

My political satire is a mash-up with fairy tale/fantasy.

Shocked

This is the major writing revelation I had this Flash Fiction - everything I do turns to horror - and I need to try work with that more.

The only thing that saved my fantasy piece (from this at least) was that the word count made me cut out the giant mine monster ;)
