Nah, it's just the timing of this comp that fails me (or the other way around). I'll surely be back next time. 

Good luck all! Smash iiiiit xxx

Booooo. I'll miss you at Beta particularly!

Looks like you've just booked yourself a beta for screenwriting this weekend LOL Here's hoping we get through!

I totally flaked out on FFC thanks to my enormous classload last semester, but this semester is going to be much easier and I can't wait to get back into these comps.

I'm in. After getting my rude awakening in the Flash semi-final round, I am BACK and I am super-motivated to kill it this time around.

Which means I'll get political satire. Or romantic comedy. Blech.

@td333777 I'm still scratching my head over that.

And I'm in for SSC as a first timer. I'm sure I'll find a way to twist in those luxurious eight days.

I am hoping it goes better for me than it did last year.

2018: 

Day 1: Get prompt. Think.
Day 2: Think.
Day 3: Think, with an edge of panic.
Day 4: Write one paragraph of garbage.
Day 5: Rewrite garbage paragraph 30 times.
Day 6: Write a skeleton of a terrible, implausible plot full of unfillable holes.
Day 7: Revisit other ideas hysterically.
Day 8: Desperately ask my husband if it’s good, accept his lies, polish up garbage, submit.

At least in flash you only get 48 hours of thinking and garbaging!

I'm just getting back onto the forums. I am in for this year. I did the challenge a couple of years ago and received an honorable mention on the first round. I was pretty happy with that result. I took last year off to take care of my personal life and am back this year. I'm looking forward to the fun!

Welcome to NYC Midnight and the forum!! Before you know it, you will be just as hooked as the rest of us. Don't be afraid to ask questions as you go...there is a lot to learn at first. And when it comes time to beta (swap a draft with another forum member), you should definitely participate! :)
