Submitted, by gum. Not at all crazy about it, and my synopsis absolutely sucks, but it's in. Now to obsessively go over the manuscript again in the 1/2 hour I have left, to see if I find any mistakes. Which I won't. Not until tomorrow, when it's too late, will I spot 'em.

You did 2?! Oh my god. I just finished at 1499 words! Fighting the urge to just read it over and over until midnight.

You got this! Pat yourself on the back and relax. I’m sure it’s been a long day for all of us!

Yep, watching the horror unfold cost me most of yesterday evening too. Difficult to write through total existential despair. Could be why my story is so bleak.

If it's any consolation, I have only just started writing, with under 4 hours to go! (I blame the election upset last night - which some people are describing as "Australia's Trumpian moment"!)

The good news is that my story is all mapped out in my head, and I know exactly what's going to happen. 

Am super impressed that that rest of you have managed to finish a story (and in some cases, write two!).

I feel you Holdo...this is tough. The first two rounds I knew exactly what I wanted to do and say, and these prompts just did not spark anything. Maybe I’m dried out LOL
