I’m pretty sure it’s Friday evening, Jan 17, at 11:59PM Eastern. So 2.5 more days! Good luck!

I would have spent the time on the forums checking out the prompts and wishing I had joined instead of working on my WIP. So I will see you all Friday!


You know, I had just naturally assumed you were in! LOL

I'm in, will be fun, though I have commitments requiring travel both weekends and that is not ideal. Will work it out (who needs sleep, anyway)

Oh, please, at this point I'm basically in a controlling abusive relationship with NYCM. Maybe if I'm lucky it'll be a prompt that lends itself to writing about game shows or dealing with media.

You know, I knew it was Friday, but I managed to not know what day TODAY is. Lol thank you for the clarification! :)

I'm in! My first NYCM was Short Story 2016. What a wonderful 4 years it has been. <3

I’m in. I’m jumping off in the deep end. I haven’t written a short story since college 30+ years ago before children. They are grown and I’m trying to reboot achieving my dreams. This is going to be really hard for me, but an assignment with a deadline is just what I need to help me with a jumpstart.

I am so in! I can't wait. Chomping at the bit. One year ago, I started my writing journey (in seriousness) with this very competition. And it's been an amazing. Year of writing. So, I had to give it another go, since I've come full circle. I'm hoping to make it past first round if the fates smile down on me. I would consider that a win. Lol

lol, I didn't think I was going to, but here I am, registering the day before the deadline. haha

It's my first SSC, I'm pumped!  8 days feels like such a long time to write compared to the 48 hrs for flash!

I'm in! Hoping to figure out how to harness the mojo that got me 1st place in the first round of micro and ditch the bad juju that got me eliminated in the second. Sounds like I need some good writing spells! :-)
