Same, Taaaylor - Group 7. My first thought was that drama was ok, as it's kind of a 'normal story' thing, without pushing me into a new genre. Now I'm thinking it's really hard to be dramatic enough / develop my characters enough / have a decent ending! Also, I'm seeing you all as tough competition. Everyone's got to be really strong by this point.

Good luck, all and well done so far.

Group 3: Comedy/immortality/statistician

Last time I got comedy I gave up, sooooo let’s hope this one goes better. 😂 I generally write funny lines into my stories anyway, but the idea of HAVING to be funny just shuts my brain down.

I feel this so much. I'm funny, but not on purpose, but also not on accident, but don't ask me to tell a joke because I've never heard of such a thing.

Yes exactly! I can play off something and be funny, but if it's like- "Hey Megan- be funny NOW," I just caaaaaaaan't!

Not participating but reading through the prompts and yep, Scooby Doo! I hope someone simply throws the number 49 in as an Easter egg

Wrote an entire draft and then remembered that the genre is supposed to be way, way more mystery than I was making it. Hey, but it's still Saturday. LOL
