Just a fw more days!  I won't be moving on, as I got a big fat zero in the first heat, but would not mind terribly getting a scoring story.

                                   Good luck all!

I keep forgetting that scores are out this week (and that some of us will be writing again by the weekend...)

Idk how this round will go, but i'm super excited to see judge feedback :) plus, i love seeing how my fav stories from the forums do in their heat!!

There's a teensy weensy chance I'll make it to challenge 2; but in case I don't, plan B for this weekend is to pull together all the short stories and flash fiction pieces I've written over several years and start my indie publishing adventure. Either way, summat to look forward to...

This week definitely snuck (is that a word??) up on me. I'm excited to see how everyone does! While I'd definitely like another shot at the challenge if I squeak through, I'm working around 50 hours this week so it might be nice to have next weekend off... LOL

I got enough points in the first round that I could either move on if I do really well in this one, or I could completely tank this one and not move on. I'd really just like to know one way or another.

No amount of points in Round 1 guarantees or precludes advancing to the next assignment. Judges are unpredictable. We’ll see.

This Saturday, we have tickets to take our toddler to Frozen... On Ice! So, if I’m writing this weekend, hopefully I get assigned, like, skating arena? 

And if I don’t advance, well, I’ll just have to Let It Go! LET IT GO!

(Obviously, I have papers I should be grading.)

I'm coming in with a 15 in the first challenge, so I keep convincing myself that *surely* I'll make it through, but then double back and work equally hard to convince myself that I won't so I'm not too disappointed. It's such a crapshoot. Who can say?
I've used this example before, but one year I got a 0 in first challenge and a 15 in the second, and only missed advancing by 3 points (the fifth place writer in my heat advanced with an 18).So, truly, anything can happen.

That must have hurt.  I have done bad in the first and then sored well enough in the second to miss by a slim margin, well slim to my mind, lol.  Sometimes a lonely 15 will advance though, seen it happen.
