OK, firstly, this is not me placing a ticket on myself rather I phrased the question as an optimistic 'will' because why the heck not put that out there.  We can do this!  ("Right?"Confused)

So to the question:

The genre is unspecified in the next round.  So far, I've had to write Sci-fi and Fairytale neither of which I would have attempted without being told to. The idea of an 'open genre' is now a bit scary.  Will you stick with what you feel your voice fits well with or will you try something different?

Thanks for engaging!

Is it unspecified? :o

I usually write historical fiction and fantasy, so if I want to write something strong I would probably try to draw from the familiar. Not having a specific assignment is a seriously daunting idea, though, when it comes to writing something in 24 hours.

Drama. That gives me the most freedom. I'll just write a single scene.

I won't have to worry about it but this is a fascinating thread. So...doesn't that mean you can start working on it now and not really be limited by the 24H time frame?

Good question.  I probably wouldn't set up a framework - just because you still get prompts to include I think and I wouldn't want to limit myself by having to shoe-horn them into something I' already worked on.

Not that I expect to have the luxury of this problem btw!

I am however wondering about the style/genre I might go for.  Hence me starting this thread!

Good luck to you

I haven't done this comp (or any comp) before BUT I think in R3 you get prompts but no genre.

Ah. I didn't know you still got prompts. Well that makes it more interesting!

Good luck to you too!!!!

Midwestern gothic...which I end up forcing on half of the other genres anyway. >.> (Except fantasy. I let fantasy be fantasy.)
Have a glass of wine and take it like a writer.

I am 70% Vulcan, yet I survived romantic comedy in round one. In round two; romantic bleeping comedy again. Sigh. If I survive to round three, I guess I should choose romantic comedy. It is only logical.

For round 2 I went back and shoved the genre in by brute force after I was done with the story. I could skip that step in round 3!
