It wasn't on the Master List because there was no comment to add it. I snapped it up from this post (Thanks!!) but a reminder to folks if you want to be included on the Master List leave me or Steph a comment on the correct list with a link to your forum post and we'll get yas added!

I really appreciate all that you do for the forum. I haven’t figured out how to link post the link friend google docs. It shouldn’t be hard since everyone else is doing it. For the time being I’m stuck with the stupid blog. 
After reading the other stories I realized that I submitted an eighth grade English composition. I’m going to work on character development and and atmosphere for the next round. There are so many exceptionally talented writers in this competition. It’s overwhelming.

Check the top of the master list - there's a link there to the "This is for all you new people" post, which has instructions on how to do this stuff :)

You'll be fine.

Here's the thing:
1. You wrote something! It never existed until you wrote it. It is something that you did, and without your work, it wouldn't be here.
2. You posted it! You put yourself out here, hoping that you'd get support from others, and maybe even see that people like your work. That is both audacious and awesome!

Sharing a story is like bringing your baby with you for the first time. You see all the other parents and guardians with children who are older, and you can choose to think "I hope I can learn how to do the same" or you can think "I'll never be able to do that."

You're going to be OK. We're mostly friendly, and we mostly will do whatever we can to help you.

Just ask for help, and then go and do it!

I am 100% it's something I've done incorrectly.  Thank you so much for organizing all of this!  :) 


1. Create your post in the 2019 Flash Fiction subgroup. Copy the link to that post.
2. Reply to the Master List group that matches your group number. For example, if you're in groups 1-20, you'd open that topic, then Reply with the link to your post.

The Master Lists are manually curated by two heroic volunteers, following the footsteps of the most heroic Nixie (whom I've met in person). It's a labor of love, and the forum software can make it difficult to keep things in synch, but just be patient -- they'll get around to you.

There are some good writers, yes, but don't count yourself out. The judges are fickle, and sometimes eminently qualified stories don't make it--the judges are looking for something other than what got submitted.

I can't write like these writers, but I admire their work. They reach higher than I can--but I can still reach high.

You'll be fine.
