    It's less fun if you guys are expecting it because it was announced. In any event, there is no such thing as threenough entries. More is needed.

    Perhaps an educational video on dinosaurs will help inspire some last minute writers.

    Fine, I will try and bash something together last minute. :p

    Been a tricky month for me for free time and inspiration, but I might have a kernel of an idea-thing...

    Two thing, first, I don't count my chickens until they are hatched, and second, Y'ttar is not the only person who regularly bestows last minute entries upon me; he is simply the most reliable.

    One day I might take my time and not write some insane rushed entry where I throw some poor characters in a room together and make candle related imagery with no regard to proper wick etiquette. And something about stars and shadows.

    Anyway, my crazed scribblings are in...Big Hatted Old One preserve us all! :p

    The official deadline is not for six hours. I can extend the official deadline if someone asks nicely, or if I decide to sleep in (I'm about five minutes from crashing right now). Who knows what the number of the day will ultimately be?
