101 Words site is posting one of my stories (not a previous NYCM entry) next month, so now I’m extra excited about tackling another micro story Big smile

Thank you!  Indeed it is.  A NYCM MF I submitted wasn’t accepted, thinking it just didn’t make too much sense out of context of the prompts, so very happy the most recent one did.

I signed up for this a little while back but forgot to put it on my calendar. Will also be doing several other things simultaneously... 

Send good thoughts and fishies. Flippers crossed I do not pull all my feathers out!

I need some motivation and entered a few minutes ago.  So I paid the full fee.  This will be my first contest.

I hadn't ever attempted a full story in 100 words, and after reading last year's winners, I knew I was in over my head! I've asked friends to give me prompts as a challenge so that next year I'll feel a little less scared to enter. Good luck to all you brave souls!!

You can always pick a random number and write a 100 word story based on that group prompt.  You can even post your story on the boards and ask for critique/comments.

Yes! I'm excited for you and everyone else. I registered yesterday (and coaxed a friend into joining, too) and have been feeling twitchy about it ever since. Can't believe it's almost time! Sleep seems like an impossible dream right now, don't want to waste a single precious moment.
