    When the other entrants become available to read is when the concern and self doubt set in for me.... Being self-critical is easy when you have comparisons.

    Well, for the first time I won't have to do a bunch of hacking and slashing my story down. I'm well below the 2200 word limit.

    Okay, my entry is in. May the Critic Gods have mercy upon my soul.

    It's not a winner, but hopefully people enjoy it.

    Well done! and now the waiting begins.

    @Scalenex : This has to be the fastest entry ever, is it?

    That's the attitude ;)

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Well no, someone else beat him by a few days with a rough draft he or she wanted me to look over this very contest.

    On past contests there might have been someone who was faster. @thedarkfourth very frequently provides a story entry within the first week of the contest. He's not the only early bird, but he is the most prolific across multiple contests.

    Indeed, we have two entries. Neither of them are from TD4.

    But in any event, two entries in the first week is a good thing. Usually we get only one entry in the first week. Sometimes, this stretches past the second week forcing me to break out this song. But we have two, and two is enough for a contest.
