    The story submission folder has been closed.

    If you submitted the story to the site and forgot to add it to the folder, pm me.

    If you're one of the new authors who's stories still need manual approval, don't worry, we'll get it taken care of in the morning.

    Go read my vanity entry to the contest.

    Less than 24 hours remain

    I'm in a hotel room and up too late. Lots of late entries are pouring in, and I'm sure there's plenty more to come.

    It's September.

    Two weeks remain for the deadline to the Sunset Shipping Contest. We're at 13 entries so far, and I know a lot of people are still hard at work.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has to offer, and wish you all the best of luck on getting your entry in.

    Also, I've been working on a vanity entry to the contest myself, which should be ready shortly for your reading perusal.

"OROOOOOO!"

So are all the entries finally logged into the folder, or can I expect a few stragglers to trickle in over the course of the day? >.>

And as usual, I only came up with a story idea myself after the contest is over. :)

Out of curiosity, how long do you expect the judging process to take? Closer to two weeks, or a month? I’m just wondering because I’ve never entered one of your contests before.

It'll be awhile. There's a lot of stories to get through, even with 5 judges. I've set a tentative goal of "before November" but we'll see if that remains realistic with everyone's schedules.

Thanks! Just wanted to have some idea.

How's that goal coming? he asked, having twenty stories left to read himself. :B

Follow-up Inquiry.

Couldn't help but notice that we're almost entering hours territory towards "before November".

As an observation: I find it interesting how much more subdued everyone seems this year as opposed to last.

If you ask me, it's been a rather depressing contest, due to the prompt. :B Could have something to do with it.
