Woohoo...it's almost here. I'm excited. I already warned my son I have dibs on the computer for the majority of the 24 hours.

Who else signed up for it?

Anyone? Anyone?

Bueller?

I've been debating it and didn't want to commit (after all who knows what your schedule will look like?) But I'm jumping in the pool too...

Should be fun!

Me too. I read through the website again last night. I'm glad I've had theme-writing practice from our short story contests here. And practice following guidelines. And, and, and...

Thanks, Michy :)

We're gonna kick ass...well, I'm going to try at least.

Woohoo! I'm so happy you're joining us.

(I missed this post at first. That's what happens when it takes 15 minutes to write a post because your boss keeps walking into your office) :whistle:

I'm excited about it. I like working under pressure with unknown elements.

Worst case scenario...I draw a complete blank on what to write about and I'm out $5.

But that's not going to happen, because we're writers.

We're smart, we're funny, and gosh darnit...people like us.

Thanks for that very old SNL reference...

Did we say it in front the mirror?:party:

If I draw a complete blank, I'll write gibberish and send it in anyway. Even without a good idea, I can BS almost anything :)

Hey...who you callin' "very old"?

I can BS too...it's a fine art...one I picked up from my ex-husband.

Awesome, Laurie...it'll be fun. I say we come back here at noon central on Sunday and post how we did, or how we think we did.

Rissa, bite your tongue...you know I can't go that long. I start going through withdrawal.

That's my biggest concern.

I've written shorts very fast, yes, sometimes in less than 24 hours, but I got to pick the 'theme' when doing so.

The biggest concern is that I won't 'click' on the theme and 'feel' it....

But that's part of what makes it such a challenge for me too!

ARRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
