This is my heat, too. I've never made it this far, so I'm in uncharted territory. I wrote like a fiend yesterday and today, and I actually had two stories in the hopper at one point before settling on one. Good luck!

I can work with this.


I'm such a forum noob. I meant to quote this post in my post above. I got suspense/an appointment/a cat owner.

I do not know how people get two stories done. I almost never have time to even edit in detail. Round 2 I barely got in under the deadline.

No one said they were good. haha

I had two really good ideas and just threw them together. Had a general idea when I needed to stop, but not strict on word counts. Then I let me wife read them and tell me which one to go to work on.

I have older kids, and there's a pandemic...easy to find the time.

Have to admit, I usually toss and turn after getting the prompt, and ideas are racing through my head.

I have NOTHING to do (except take the dogs out; I swear my beagle's bladder is the size of a pinto bean), and I never finish except at the last minute.

If you got through that prompt without making one Tiger King/Carole Baskin reference, you are my hero! :)

Ha! That's too funny....as soon as I saw the prompt, I texted my sister that I thought I had the perfect sequel to Joe & Carole's saga! Happily, I came up with a slightly better idea. LOL

I'm also in H3, the Ghost story/compromise/an animal trainer group. 

I gotta admit, Friday and yesterday I was really frustrated trying to come up with a good idea. My round 1 genre was ghost story too, and then my theme for round 2 was haunted! HOW MANY GHOSTY THINGS CAN ONE WRITER THINK UP DANGIT.

But it started to gel up late last night, and then I spent today editing. So in the end it was okay. I'm sure there will be even stiffer competition this round, with so many great writers here. :)
