1 - I get to set the clock on my desktop to New York time one hour before kick-off!

2 - I enjoy donating money so others can win it.  Tongue

1. The official-ness and time limit means that my family actually gives me (a little) uninterrupted writing time.

2. The forum kicks ass!

1) Coming up with fresh ideas for longer stories (I've just about finished a novel based on prompts I received back in 2015 for R2 of SSC...a novel I would NEVER have thought of otherwise). 

2) THE FORUM! This is where you get the most bang for your buck. You get to meet other writers (many of whom have become IRL friends), and you get a lot of feedback (as long as you take the time to give it).

3) Tackling new genres and seeing how good (or bad) I am at writing them. Tongue

Good luck, guys!
