Is anyone else finding that the time between rounds is stretched a week too long? At least this time. I feel like my motivation and enthusiasm got to Friday, looked at the calendar, and deflated. Confused

Feeling the same way, although excited to keep on writing if the contest Gods deem it so, these contests dragged out over months and months get quite un-motivating after awhile.  I've opted out of this in the past, just because I like my contests crisp and concise, and not spread out over a quarter of a year. Just get me to the next round, please.

I've been doing NaNo, so I feel like I've been going nonstop! I'm ready for a break I'm not going to get.

We actually have a week less between Rounds 2 and 3 than we did between Rounds 1 and 2 . . . but the same number of writers for the judges to read. Since they barely got the judging done in time for Round 2, I'm wondering if they will be able to wrap up the judging in time for us to hit the set date for 3! 

Hope so!

I know - but it just feels so much longer this time. Not sure why. Maybe because I haven't been able to be as active on the forum this time, so I've been a bit detached from the stimulation and excitement of it. I don't know.

Actually, there are usually less stories to score this time around as people tend to drop out after the first challenge

Do you think they just shifted things because of Thanksgiving weekend (at least here in the good old US of A)?   I'm hoping if there are less entries and an extra week that we'll get the scoring tonight as promised.  A girl can dream, can't she? Big smile

The usual MO is to receive an email that says "we are sorry, but blah blah blah some heats more difficult to score blah blah will need until fill in the blank blah blah"

However, every now and then NYCM is on time.  You can't count on them being late.  So dream away.  Click your heels together 3xs while you're at it.

this is what NYCM states on their FB page:


 The date of the results announcement should have been listed in the confirmation e-mails, but we are shooting for tonight by 11:59PM EDT. If anything changes, we will send e-mails before then. Thanks and good luck!
