I'd be pulling stitches out with that staple remover!!

Oh, and I've seen people move on with a combined score of 16... so, yes, you should continue.

Thanks!  And had major issues so eventually had to borrow someone’s computer and type in word. Spent more time on formatting than the story! It’s not looking hopeful but you never know!!

Anyone who read my challenge 1 screenplay might find this amusing.

At least you have prior experience with avocados!

Your reactions were similar to mine except mine was:

Thriller (crap)
A bike path (eh, not bad)
Avocado Toast (wtf?)

I think I made it work. Hopefully!

Fairy-tale, a submarine, a hook. 

Excited to get into this! 


We are heat mates! My first time to get fairy tale. Kinda went traditional with classic elements. Good luck!

Caviar?? Finished a draft with one idea but I kind of hate it. Struggling!

First drafts are the hardest to look at it! Keep going and you'll get there!


Not true, a blank page on day two is harder to look at!

Yeah. But now that I'm on day three with eight hours to go and no first draft my first comment seems laughable.


Both are hard! On draft 3 now and feeling slightly better about it... good luck y'all!

I was like “okay I can work with this...avocado toast?!?! WTF?!?!”

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. 

Ah! A Fellow group mate! I'm excited to see what our group of Avocado Toasters come up with.

I am definitely not a great fantasy writer, especially of steel mills and blackboards

Would like to scrap mine, but another idea is not forthcoming

- The one and only genre I have no interest in writing in... (okay, I’d be uncomfortable with comedy as well)
- I need to work all weekend to prepare for business meetings...
- Not much is at stake after the brilliant zero I scored in round 1...

I need to find some motivation, really not sure about this one...

Remember, plenty of us scored zero! Focus on the story and you'll get there.

I was actually THRILLED with my prompts. Especially after having to slog through fantasy (my nemesis) for the last round.
