    Don't burn yourself out there. Self-care is best care.

    Well stuff keeps coming up and I'm not the best multitasker, so I extended things another 24 hours.

    Officially the new deadline is midnight US Central time on May 3rd which is technically the start of May 4th, but given how fuzzy my schedule is and how the contests are usually fairly informal, anyone who wants a little extra time, let me know.

    Hokay. I sent my entry in already, but make sure and read the note I sent AFTER the story entry? I need a ruling on that before it is posted...

    We got nine, that's a pretty good haul. Ten is good too. if anyone is scrambling on a post-last minute story, let me know.

    You are not the only one who sent me a question, so I'm going to try to take the time to address editorial concerns, so it may be another day or two before I post the entries, but sit tight.

    We got a good batch with some well written pieces. It will be worth the wait.

    *Deranged chittering laughter of madness*

    I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a concept and write my entry in a single day. No idea how it will read...but i'm sure it will be a ride! :p

    The general rule is that the stories are posted in the voting thread on the first day of the month.
    This round things went differently. :D
    But i believe it's a matter on 1-2 days

    No, he was number 9. Though I'm going to randomize the presentation so his story might not be in the 9th slot.
