Same. How'd you do? I personally would rather any genre before romcom. I feel like I cursed myself. But I gave it a shot and came up with...something.

Moooood. Romcom feels like so much work, and i dont actually know how to squeeze two full genres into one but I also... added one?  Lmao. I like my story but i really dont like landing the genre

LMAO -- me too! Placed mine in a fantasy universe. It's clearly rom, easy on the com (but is fairly light hearted and has a few jokey bits). I'm just crossing my fingers for a low submission rate in my heat. LOL

I loaned my marked up paperback copy to someone and never got it back (they have never been forgiven).  Nobody touches the hardcover.

I have definitely managed two drinks from the Hippocrene.  This contest forces me to wonder whether I managed the third.

I've had a massive sinus infection this week and the brain fog is unreal! I hope this story I wrote is comedic enough.

Good luck everyone! Can't wait to read what others have written.

Glad you came up with something. I’ve got 400 words of ugh. Work was crazy this week. Last nights every night. I barely got to think about it all week. Whenever I did, I’d find myself going… penmanship. WTF?  I don’t know if I’ll get something in or not. We’ll see. Looking forward to seeing what more creative people have dreamt up.

Horror
Confiscation
A stationmaster

Every cycle I hope to avoid horror, but this is maybe the best story I've written so far for NYCM. Looks like working outside of my comfort zone is a good thing. 

I was working out of town when this launched, totally forgot about it until half way through, and wrote it all in 3 days. Now I've got a few hours to get some beta reviews, polish it, and I'm good.

Hey, heatmate! Handshake

I just submitted mine. I think it went decently (betas liked it, at least). I've never written romcom in my life, and I steer clear of anything romance, so this was a first for me. Romcom's one of the two genres I dreaded drawing (the other being romance). I guess we'll find out in a few months if the judges liked it. Approve

I hope you're able to come up with something! Maybe something like a prankster is doing something in a penmanship class and he even though he's a good prankster, he gets pranked? I'm excited to read yours!

Well, I submitted something.  Not quire sure if it's a comedy, but it's something.  It's 1500 words, so well under the maximum word count, but it's at least something.  Given that I managed to write the entire thing today, it'll do.  Oh well.
