I did the opposite. I had a "safe" entry and went with my wilder option. It didn't make it either. Looking forward to flash fiction now! See you there!

I did.... 

And it looks like SS results are out. Always a bridesmaid. Looks like yet another HM for me...

Murphy's Law says I'll either move on in both and have 2 stories to write this weekend, or neither and be stuck twiddling my thumbs. Ack!  

Hi there! Good luck to you in both competitions! Did you do the Yeah Write Super Challenge? I signed up for that one one, then got really sick during the time I was supposed to be writing, so I didn't do it. (So that's one fewer person in group 1.) I know round 2 of that is this weekend as well!

To move forward in this competition, I would have to get just the right judges for my piece - ones who appreciate my voice and wacky characters. But I have decided that I will spend some time writing this weekend - either my round 3 piece if I am fortunate enough to move forward, or a nonfiction essay I need to add 200 more words to before submitting to a publication. So either way I have blocked out some time for writing, so it will be okay. 

Good luck, nod1v1ng and everyone else!

Same! Although I thought it was 72 hours? Wednesday night at 11:59 PM Eastern, correct? I am filling my time reviewing stories I haven’t gotten to yet! Yours is on the list, coming up soon!

Good luck!

It's actually ridiculous just how nervous I feel about this, but doing this "ordered" writing was an intense experience... 



Lol! If I wasn't almost 6,500 kms away, I would take you up on those cookies! Thanks for the thought, though- it made me smile :) Not much longer now!
