Am I missing something? I don't see a forum for my contest ...


They will create it, probably on Monday.  There's a new one for each contest, each year (if you look in the archives you'l see FFC 2018, for example :) )

I'm reading for fun, not returns. If you don't visit my story, I'll assume you were reading 200 others :)

I should use 'ping' and 'pong'.  In computers you can 'ping' a server.  The return packet is a 'pong'.  Really.

I have a quick question. Is it alright to review your group? I've read them, but I don't want to review them if that's a no-no.

Um.  Huh?

That's my brilliant repartee for the day.

It's perfectly fine to review others in your group. In fact, it's always nice to stop by to at least acknowledge that you read their entry.

It's up to you how much actual critique you want to offer heatmates. Some people may just do at "hello" and point out the cool things that their heatmates did with the prompts. Other people do a more detailed review. All depends on your comfort level.

But at the very least a "hi" is nice. I always appreciate it when a heatmate stops by.

Welcome to the forum!

Sure. If anything the first place I go is always my group as it's always fascinating to see what other people did with the prompts. I remember last year before we got the all-clear one group (the one with a ship, and IIRC it was fantasy or horror) was convinced based on log lines and discussion that they'd all end up with a bunch of stories that were basically alike. Then when people started posting everything was radically different!
