Might go visit the northeast since I don't do masks and Europe is still in panic mode.  We'll see how well sanity spreads.

Why are you making passive aggressive digs on a writing forum? 'Sanity spreads' has negative implications on views I am sure many on these forums hold. It's a divisive and stressful topic that has nothing to do with these forums and there is already so much commentary, debate, and even public rallies on it elsewhere. 

If your story prompts came up and you used them to make scathing commentary on this subject, I'd be 100% on your side for sharing your vision and views. But the forums do stick mostly to writing and the contests.

At the very least, from a purely writer's craft perspective, if you're going to do this sort of thing, can you not make the segue so ugly? It's contrived. 

Well said. I couldn't agree more. Keep your commentary (for want of a better word) for your writing. A writing forum is not the place for soapboxing. All the best from this European mask wearer, who I assure you never panics.

My introduction to NYCM was Flash19. This will be my 3rd to participate in! Also jumped in on 100 Word Micro this year. I'm definitely hooked for life now.

In! I love the flash fiction one. I am finding that though I choke at a certain point in every contest (LOL), the assigned prompts are really helping me with plot and unfamiliar genres.

I've signed up. I've not done the flash fiction contest yet so curious to see what it's like.

I've written a few for fun. This will be my first flash fiction contest. Looking forward to the challenge.

Yes, first you are given a little taste, what harm can that do. Then a new competition, can't hurt, right?
Now you have a new contest every month on your back - addiction at its finest!

Flash 2018 was there first time I did any creative writing outside of school assignments. Since then I’ve written a novel and signed with a literary agent who will be putting it on submission soon. So I will definitely be back for flash 21 to celebrate my anniversary as a writer!

I have 2 other contests I signed up for that overlap C1 and I'll be traveling Thurs-Mon for my cousin's funeral. Writing is therapeutic, so I'll make it happen somehow...

 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
