Meh. Not really. I just thought that by stickiervating it to the top of the forum, it would help keep it in people's conciousness.

Perhaps it's better if I keep bumping it so people are like "oh yeah". I just don't want people to forget and want to keep encouraging people to write and submit! :p

I have some work posted on the forum already that I'd like to submit as an entry. Is that possible?

awww. So want to do this but i'm busy, doing all my english work in preparation for my exam. Sucks. I may enter, but probably not, cause I don't think it'd be worth it if i'm just doing it occasionally and it doesn't have full commitment etc. Cause itd be shite(more so than usual anyhow).

Unless I do it now and hand it in later for my short story I have to do for stupid folio. Anyhow, we'll see.

Has it been commented on and subsequently edited? If so... that falls outside the rules.



(Sorry for the second post in a row, I didn't see Dolmen's question)

Heh, Brood tried that too, for NaNoWriMo crossposting.
Hello, soldiers, look at your mage, now back to me, now back at your mage, now back to me. Sadly, he isnít me, but if he stopped being an unascended mortal and switched to Sole Spice, he could smell like heís me. Look down, back up, where are you? Youíre in a warren with the High Mage your cadre mage could smell like. Whatís in your hand, back at me. I have it, itís an acorn with two gates to that realm you love. Look again, the acorn is now otataral. Anything is possible when your mage smells like Sole Spice and not a Bole brother. Iím on a quorl.

PLEASE POST IF:

A December deadline would allow you to participate. We're still here in July, so I don't see any harm in bumping the deadline back (within reason and only once) if it allows more to participate.

I agree with Sticky, but not enough people go to and pay regular attention to the writing forum. I have a thread there already, and would like this one to stay here so that the word stays out for the people who only pop into the forums occasionally.

spellcheckers are ok ;)

And I've had 3 people ask if the deadline could be moved back one more month because of examinations. If that means 3 more submissions, I think that's great. I'm going to confer with the 3 judges to get their take, and then I'll post a new deadline both here, on the rules page (OP) and in the writing forum.

And we WILL be checking the NaNoWriMo site, so no cheating.

This means you, Brood.
