Can't wait to try this one. That'll mean 4 NYCM comps in a row for me! Woop!

It only gets overwhelming when you do well. Right? RIGHT?

So I take it I'll see you there, Lisa? Wink

It's the system that they (and other comps) use for registration purposes.

Yup, this will be my second rodeo with Short Story. I'll definitely be there.

Looks like registration is now open!

I think I will go for it, just so I've had a go at each of the competitions at least once. The extra breathing room on word count in Short Story does appeal.

I think going forward I'll settle on just the two prose competitions each year, but the script writing is fun too and something different for me, and will be hard to say no to.

Basically I love the whole process and the forums that support it - definitely addicted!

Just registered!

And I hear you on the addiction. I'm now doing all four contests because, well, why not? Wink

I did the thing, even though I've face planted BOTH times I've tried this one before. It's almost like a week is too much freedom.
Have a glass of wine and take it like a writer.

This starts up right when my deadline for my film school application is, so that's good. I should be able to put everything into this.

I have 8 days and a more liberal word count? Gives me a 96.435% chance of winning!
