I'm in!  Very 1st time too (both for NYC and for writing competitions in general).  I haven't written any short stories in eons however (like since high school... so the mid-90s. eek).  I've been writing (or attempting to write more accurately) novels sporadically over the years, but only recently I've been trying to get more serious about it. And stumbled across NYC and thought, what the hell?  Maybe could be a good exercise/kick in the pants to get me more back into the mindset of seriously taking the time to write and create.  

Certainly could be fun to be forced to think outside the box by getting a genre I don't normally write in (mainly fantasy/sci-fi). 

Anyway, that's me.  Total newbie here.  Be kind. ;-)

This is exactly why I joined up two years ago, and it WORKED. Good luck to you!!

If you want to quote someone so they know to whom you're speaking, click on "quote" instead of "reply" like I did here. It'll make commenting easier!

ETA: Also where in Newfoundland? I was just in Corner Brook in September.

Other coast!!!! Just outside St. John's. I wish we were starting tonight because we are getting a mega storm that will go into Saturday! And when Newfoundlanders say things like weather bomb and snowmagetton it is going to be bad. They are predicting power outages so I just hop it won't delay me getting the prompts!!!!!

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!

Who else will be here?

Likewise, Alex... but the NYC "last day to register" email got me! Life has been hectic, so I'm actually looking forward to losing myself in 2500 words or less.

Great to see so many familiar folks here! Wishing everyone the best of luck.
