Group 7. Sci-fi, a one way ticket, an amputee.

Another new genre for me. Gulp.

Group 3: 
Ghost story (Dead)
A statue (ummm...?)
A waitress (meh) 

I fear ghost story almost as much as political satire. Really hard to be original, in my opinion...Ugh. Well, here I go. Good luck everyone!

...Hi Corrie. I regret to inform you that I have 1229 words at this point, and what's worse, I'm pretty damn happy with it.

^ I always hate people who post things like this in the forum, don't you? It's a first for me, but hate me anyway. I deserve it.

If only I had a beta reader or two or three...I'd return the favor.

Eeep!!! You have that much already? I just woke up...lol!

I am pretty sure I won't be moving forward this time. I fear I will bomb this genre. But either way, I hope you make it, Fred!!

Tell me about it!  I've gotten that genre 5 times around here!!!  But is can be done!  Just throw away your first 15 ideas and go with #16!

I think I've got a solid idea...I think. LOL! Day one is the worst for me in these contests. So much doubt/freaking out/panic...I despise the development stage of this process, haha. 

Good luck everyone! I'm off to la-la land.

Overbearing  (seems a weird choice of subject compared to the rest of the groups)

Thought 1: What doesn't feel overbearing at 13?

Thought 2: It is going to be tough to make this original.

Thought 3: I'm in the same group as Topangarose!?!? Dead (There wasn't a face for intimidatedWink)
