24 hour story anthology Novels

I was thinking, I would love to see the 24 hour stories published to see what the winners came up with for a quick story and their techniques to write the story so quickly...

How does everyone else feel about this???

Totally agree...If you don't play, write, compose, you will never win or get out there....

It pays to see things in a diffe...
