Maybe. I'll be in Spain on vacation and the time difference could work very nicely, but I hope I remember when to submit the story.

I found being on Central European Summer time made R2 of 100w and R1 of flash WAY easier.

I imagine that if you're the type who can get the prompts and immediately start writing, then starting first thing in the morning is perfect. However, if you're liable to go right to the deadline, a 5am finish is not ideal (especially if you have work on Monday!).

I have heard these same words from betas, they lose those four or five hours and so have a different deadline.

Does anyone know how long it takes? I posted on Facebook about this challenge, trying to qualify for the code that would give me $5 off on the registration fee. I thought I did everything correctly - setting the post to "public" and submitting the URL to NYC Midnight. But it's been a few days now and I have not rec'd an e-mail with the promotional code.

Does it usually take awhile to hear back?

No, it happened virtually instantly for me this time. I'd contact them and check.
