    If I can finish mine, you can finish yours!

    If you need a couple extra hours let me know.

    4 hours to go and my first draft is almost complete.

    Perhaps I have mismanaged my time this time around...

    Given my last few weeks of online learning and curriculum changes, I'm not entirely surprised though. I know it won't be great but by Sotek I do really love writing for these competitions, so it's only fair that after procrastinating this story for the sake of school work I flip it around and prioritise what's reeeaaally important...

    Hopefully my entry will be in soon!

    I'm going to take a quit break for some maniacal laughter and then get back to polishing my own last minute piece.

    Finished my rough draft. Took my healthy snack out of the oven and had a reasonable portion before beginning the last minute editing dash.

    Midnight-ish.

    But I'll wait till morning if Infinity Turtle or Paradoxical Pacifism need a bit more time.

    I just finished my post about two minutes ago. I'm sure it's loaded with spelling errors.

    We'll extend this a few hours to help the stragglers cross the finish line. I'm doing this because I'm generous and kind. I am not because I am full of carbohydrates and am about to crash.

    with half an hour to spare

    and with the omition of any quality content worth reading...

    I look forward to seeing what the rest of you have written!



    Edit: and now the deadline has been moved... but I still don't have the energy to go back and rewrite anything, though it desperately needs it.

    Curse you @Scalenex ! Now I really have no excuses...

    Lol + 2 ;)

    No word yet from @Scalenex , theoretically even the cookie monster could ingest enough carbohydrates to achieve critical mass for the first time to create C-bomb....

    Hopefully he's fine and will be up and posting shortly.

    I love it when people curse me...

    I'm the fly in your soup
    I'm the pebble in your shoe
    I'm the pea beneath your bed
    I'm the bump on every head


    Like I mentioned before, you or anyone else can submit revisions after the contest has begun if you wish.

    I will be posting shortly. I logged off for four hours and I got 25 likes, I don't think I ever got more likes/hour before. You guys spoil me.

    The most pressing question is...

    Did Y’ttar Scaletail get in as the 13th entry?
