I got the results of my Challenge #2 story and while I didn't do as well as the first story, it was still enough to send me to the next round! This past weekend, I had to write my third story for the contest. The field is narrowed now- only 8 groups of 30 people! My prompt was: Ghost story in a forest somehow involving a saw.
Did anyone else just think Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Because that's where my brain went, initially at least. I went a little more classic with my ghost story, but definitely still tried to be creative.
Now to wait a month for more results. Sigh.
