How amazingly fun! 

I strong-armed one of my Senior Software Developers at the office to do Short Story a couple years ago and it was super fun to have someone that you really know IRL to play along with. We pretty much texted the process with each other the whole time!

Rock on with your bad self, mike. Bring it! I started writing when I got divorced and it it was better than therapy.

Just a heads up...NYCM will be posting the Top 10 stories from last year over the next few weeks.  I’m not sure how many were posted on the forums.

#10 is up now.

Absolutely! Thankfully the divorce was long ago, but pandemic got me into writing again and I’m hooked! Idk how I’ll do 100 words but I like these challenges!

Well thank you COVID-19 for jumpstarting your creativity. Silver linings. Micros are a hell of a challenge!

I love that they are doing this!
I'm kinda interested to see what the genres are - my gut feeling is that serious emotional stories tend to do better than humorous ones in the final round but we will see!

I find the damn short stories to be a challenge... I can’t even imagine 100 words... I’ll be halfway through character devt and run out of words

Drama, often involving a dead parent or two, seems to be a common winning theme.  I’m also interested to see how many went serious.  The second place story was posted here I know, it was a beautiful fantasy.

I really want to take a shot at comedy!  Not that I'm getting anywhere near the final round, but some day!
