I started my HF story, burnt out on it, wrote a 1600 words sci-fi, dumped it for the precise reasons Gregonar listed, and went back to the HF.  Feeling better but only a tad.

No matter where you go...there you are.

I should add that doesn't mean a good SF can't win.  I just know that MY sci-fi wasn't about to win jack squat.

Well, I tried not to go for sci-fi and failed miserably.  So, with the deadline looming, sci-fi it is.  It seems I got nothing else.

I'm sure yours will be great, Laszlo.  You've already shown you can write sci-fi. It's better for me not to try something too new at the Zero Hour.

Okay, I'm done. It's submitted. I made the mistake of having a large glass of nicely warmed port BEFORE I wrote my synopsis and submitted, so god alone knows what I actually sent in.

Ladies and gentlemen, good luck. It's been an honour.

Congrats LG! 

As to me, I just finished attempt #2 (having scrapped my first story, a fairy-tale, for being too long). Now I'm sitting on a romance, of all things, that I absolutely hate.Cry Hope everyone else is fairing better.

I second that.
Also, done and submitted.  Sci-fi (sort of) again.  We'll just have to see, I guess.

These prompts just are jiving with me. But I've finally got something that looks like it is worth saving and I have 200 words to trim, then I need to edit for typos, write a synopsis and come up with a title in 2 hours and 13 minutes and I'm beginning not to trust my eyes, or my ability to tell crap from creative. But hey 2 hours ago, my beta reader said it was just ok and an hour ago it was "better: and he just called and said "pretty good, um." So I might make it!

I can't find where to submit.  Am I blind?
ETA: I found it.
 
To echo LG's sentiments, you guys are the best and it's been a blast.  Heart
