Caviar?? Finished a draft with one idea but I kind of hate it. Struggling!

First drafts are the hardest to look at it! Keep going and you'll get there!

Not true, a blank page on day two is harder to look at!

Is it Suspense?  Thriller?  Horror?  Or is it Memorex?  The judges will have to decide.

This one, for once, is writing itself.  Maybe a little horror in there, but I'm going to make it ambiguous enough to leave more questions than answers at the cut.

Seriously, after all those roms and coms I deserve something that writes itself.  A pistol in the cellar?  Not that much different than finding a small moon in the remains of the Alderan system.

I've got a bad feeling about this...

I was actually THRILLED with my prompts. Especially after having to slog through fantasy (my nemesis) for the last round.

Yeah. But now that I'm on day three with eight hours to go and no first draft my first comment seems laughable.

- Not much is at stake after the brilliant zero I scored in round 1...

I need to find some motivation, really not sure about this one...

Remember, plenty of us scored zero! Focus on the story and you'll get there.

I am definitely not a great fantasy writer, especially of steel mills and blackboards

Would like to scrap mine, but another idea is not forthcoming

I was like “okay I can work with this...avocado toast?!?! WTF?!?!”

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. 

Ah! A Fellow group mate! I'm excited to see what our group of Avocado Toasters come up with.

Both are hard! On draft 3 now and feeling slightly better about it... good luck y'all!

Excited to get into this! 


We are heat mates! My first time to get fairy tale. Kinda went traditional with classic elements. Good luck!
