Group 75 selling something/correct

Hello groupmate! I struggled with this set of prompts as well, but am suspiciously happy with what I cobbled together. Congratulations on finishing Clap

I'm in 102 too! Finally submitted, but it was down to the wire. Can't exactly do the classic 7 beat rom com in 250! LOL

Also Rom Com here, which is only slightly better than last time when I got Romance. I did my best with that one by taking the idea of "two hearts beating as one" rather too literally ;-)

Same - group 1.
Found the genre a challenge. Not sure if mine is funny enough.
Will see. Fun stuff.

Being a newbie, I am not even sure what the rom-com genre is! LOL...I guess I will eventually find out if I move on to round two or continue to enter this fun-but-challenging contest on an annual basis.

I am in group 13 and got Suspense/Thriller, which I was very excited about!

Talking with my writers group beforehand, i was "anything but romance!"

so i ended up in group 10 - romance!!!

I'm a paranormal fiction writer with a love of vampires and horror!

oh well... teenage romance it was!
Have fun. Be Kind.

All the Rom-Com's I've read (admittedly not many) or watched (a few) have been humorous and pleasant in a Jennifer Anniston kinda way rather than 'funny'. I think if you can get even a sniff of humorous and pleasant then you're more or less there.

Me, I got Romance (109). 

Walks away head bowed, shuffling feet like a 5-year old pretending not to care.
