And I scraped into the next round by the skin of my teeth.

Adrenaline rush... That's all I can say...

I'm disappointed. Apparently I mistakenly submitted late by looking at a different time clock, so I had no points.

I had a great start of 9 Points, and got some great feedback on my second story.

I will not make that mistake again. 

In short, a lack of attention to detail got me.

Kinda feel for the tied people that did not make it into the next round.  Don't see why they don't just let them compete as well.

Came in third in my group overall. Scored 9 points the first round, and 15 the second. Even though I had a lot more confidence in my second story, I was still surprised to see it come in first place. Here's to hoping I pull a doable genre Friday, lol.

I won group 119, which honestly surprises me because I didn't love my second story. But I am not complaining!

Going through the scoresheet is super interesting. Melissa in Group 96 didn't even score in Round 1 and got through on a 15 in Round 2. Wild!

Good showing this time - but only mediocre 1st challenge, so I am *6th* in group by a mere two points.  Congrats to the folks from Group 53 who will be writing this weekend, and to everyone who advanced!!!!

I missed out on making it to the next round by 1 point, and now I’m a little disappointed. Still, I’m ecstatic that I got any points on my second story at all; I was afraid it might not have fit in enough with the genre I was given. If I hadn’t missed out by just the one point, I wouldn’t have such mixed feelings right now. 😕

8 points in round two!  Not bad, but with my goose egg in round one, that's not getting me through.  Good thing, actually - I can't imagine trying to do this and NANO simultaneously, plus I have a writing convention this weekend...
