One entry per person. Did you read the rules? >.<
Also, again a personal opinion, still doesn't seem Halloween based or moody. Something I may discuss with the others, if this is your entry.

It's been here for a month. :D

Mine took five minutes. You don't need a story. It could be a poem or something, as long as it's original, and follows the rules of the contest.

Im too self conscious about my writing to make something in 5 minutes >.>

You still have roughly 20 hours.
Point of the contest is to have fun with it. c:

Yes, it is to have fun, but it's also to spread the fun with the readers.

Extend it by a couple of days, I'm sure no one will mind, really.

If the alternative is "nothing" then I say do it.

I did forget to edit the dates.
Compromise by the judges.

Voting thread opens tomorrow night as intended.
Entries will still be taken here until Monday night.

Enjoy the next 40-50 hours.
Second this thread gets locked Monday night, no more entries will be taken.

You know, the last time I extended a contest by a few days, thinking it wouldn't be a big deal, people got really pissed off at me.

What is there to get mad at anyway?

Regardless, it seems to have sorted itself out. People who don't have the time to make a story simply won't have one to submit I guess. Let's rev up those last minute entries!

Re: Literature Contest

Sun Oct 20, 2013 5:48 pm

Huh, so I can still make it, maybe? Tomorrow?

Provided I get a good idea for a halloween story by then...

Stupid american holiday themes, *grumble grumble*

I don't think it was the fact that it was extended that bothered them as much as the fact that the winner showed up shortly after the initial deadline and they think if you had have said "12 O'CLOCK MEANS 12 O'CLOCK! NO EXCEPTIONS!" they would have still be in with a chance of winning.

I did wright an entry for the contest even though I was not going to but I still need to go through and make those changes you suggested and with the peer assessment tomorrow, I have really not had time. No skin off of my back, though I am looking forward to reading all the entries when I get the chance.
