as well. Now worried my idea is the obvious one and there will be 5 similar stories. Might need to drag in an alien or a dinosour to stand out. 


If you *have* an idea, you're three steps ahead of me. I had one, but it went nowhere. Currently fighting panic. Ugh.

Yeah, well, to me the wild thing is that you can't get too historical with a parking meter. I guess there won't be too many stories about the ancient Mayans! I don't think. Did they park? Ermm

HA HA, Dashes, the prompts do seem boring. Like, "I was walking down the street, and I passed a newsstand, and then there was a parking meter. Oh, and it was a historical hike. The end." Unhappy LOL Oh no. We're screwed. 

Right, Kels Not  Chels, go us!! We can rock this!! Woo hoo!! I love your outlook!! Go group # 14!! 


Y'all wanna switch? I also got historical fiction- a blacksmith's shop/ a bench. Would kill for a newsstand tbh

Wooo I found a heatmate! I kind of love our prompts? This is my first NCYM challenge, and the last 2 rounds I got doozies (Pol sat/ pub/ rolling pin, then horror/ underwater trench/ gummy candy) so I'm excited to have an object I don't have to awkwardly wedge into the story!

I so glad you started this thread because I've got a question about mine I'm hoping someone can answer:

I got drama/an audition/a keyboard

And outside the boringness of those prompts, how is an audition a location? Couldn't an audition happen anywhere? It's an action not a place. Or am I nuts?! 

I have the same prompt!!! An audition is something you go to AND an action...not a place! music auditions for instance can be online, in a gym, in a church, in an auditorium, etc. Acting auditions are the same thing. Want to stretch it and say it's a job interview (which is kind of like an audition)...same thing! ANYWHERE!


Hi heatmates! I groaned when I saw Drama.... but I do kinda like the vagueness of the audition prompt!

Fellow Group One-er here Big smile
I agree with everything that's been noted here. I'm trying my best to be creative AND have in-depth characters AND a unique plot AND...and I'm currently 355 words over my limit and my plot is meh *sigh of defeat* Wishing you all the best!!

That actually occurred to me but I thought it was a bit of a stretch. Do the judges reward blatant cheek?

Hi heatmate!

I'm one of those weirdos who quite like pol-sat, and funnily enough I was working at the New Zealand election yesterday when the prompts came through. Looking forward to reading what you came up with!

Hi heatmate! I hope this weekend is kind to you and brings you many good words <3

Hey taaaylor, I think this is the first time we've been heatmates. Looking forward to reading your story!

Group 7: Thriller, Cement Plant and Kneepads.

This is NOT my first rodeo wearing kneepads- I mean, getting it as a prompt. That's kind of weird. Am I right?

I think Thriller is fun, but hard to make original? I'm trying!  LOL

I have zero ideas that don't involve bodies buried in cement. I think I'm going to really be relying on the betas...!!! 

Good luck everyone! 

Hey groupmate! LOLon the bodies! Of course, where my mind went immediately. Look forward to reading your story.

I got to sit at home not writing anything because I didn't make it to Round 2.
Fear is a powerful motivator. To some, it is a god.
