Yes, family will mean well, but....

Most of the judges have been pretty forgiving of the occasional typo or grammatical slip. If your story was riddled with problems, then they'd mark down for that, but they know that we're writing these things on a tight deadline and some mistakes are going to slip through.

So... I wouldn't worry about it. I had a typo in my final sentence last round -- not exactly the last impression I wanted to leave them with... but it was all okay. Wink



Thank you. This makes me feel much better. :)

Haha thanks Zelda! I'm not sure they will see it that way, but you were right about it going through!
