I got action and/or adventure, feeding an animal, word wish, and I am struggling right now- my drafts keep leaning pretty heavily away from "action" and are heading more toward fantasy adventure. The "and/or" is throwing me off too because that's not how it's listed in the genre see definitions. Time to just commit to something and let it turn out however it turns out I guess.

I'm in Group 30. Historical Fiction, has to involve eating chocolate.

I have learned so much about the history of chocolate today...

Same group as me, my first ever stab at Horror (no pun intended). Not sure how good my effort is, time will tell!

I got rom-com too - group 1. I wrote the story and paired it down to 250 words pretty quickly - but I'm not sure how comedy it is. Fingers crossed I can make it to round 2. Good luck everyone.

Same here! Group 70. Any form of comedy for round one was my last choice. Here goes nothing! Good luck!

Group 60. This is my first time doing this, and I was really thrown off at getting Rom-Com. My first thought was "How the heck do you do a romantic comedy in only 250 words?" However, there are plenty of rom-coms set in other genres (like horror or action), so that made it easier for me.

Hope you do too!

Trying to channel my inner Meg Ryan and early 90's Julia Roberts! Ha! Good luck to us both! 

I'm listening to the You've Got Mail soundtrack right now, lol. LOLLOLLOL I'm trying something really weird that hopefully may work. I have a back up story idea I may pivot to if it doesn't come together. Good luck to us, and look forward to reading yours!

I feel your pain. I got Drama, and had a terrible time keeping it from becoming a comedy. LOL

I'd have been okay with almost anything other than what I got. I am struggling and running out of time!Enable GingerCannot connect to Ginger Check your internet connection
