Hey! Congratulations! You did it! Pull up a chair, pour yourself a beverage of your choice, and tell us how your feeling!

Got a pot of Tieguanyin brewing in my favorite teapot and pondering if I just feel like fruit and cheese for dinner. Because I sure don't feel like cooking.

I did a little jig when I got horror this round, although a computer lab and a vacuum made me feel a little blah. 

Overall, I'm happy with what I did. I did a twist on a bit of obscure folklore, so it will be interesting to see how it is received. 

Looking forward to reading a whole bunch of stories next week!

I think I've outdone myself this this time and plan to shoot clean past 1st place into the superlative 0th place. 

I'm drinking coffee in between bouts of falling asleep. I just need to be awake half an hour before the final deadline so I can do a last minute panic edit for a marginal improvement that unintentionally introduces a new error. It's tradition.

Decided to give my eyeballs a break from staring at the same 1000 words and just submit.

I was too busy asking for not poli-sat and forgot to also footbote that I didnt want fantasy.

I’ll have a double gin and tonic please.

Pretty sure if you don’t do this they DQ you anyway. It’s how to prove you’re not a bot.

Wish I had remembered to ask for no poli-sat LOL 

I'm not even sure if what I wrote sufficiently covers that genre but it's submitted now!

Might still have one more beta take a look, but I have at least submitted a version I am very happy with. I thought I was done hours ago, but after some readers, ended up weaving in an entirely new thread and completely rewriting the ending. Now, I am very much proud of what I ended up with. 

Time for wine!

Done, will prolly fiddle with some grammar and resubmit tonight.

Here’s hoping an accountant office counts as a modern “countinghouse” equivalent because they were not gonna back door me into Historical Fiction.

I am also screwed if the judges are unfamiliar with the Muppets.

Good luck, everyone!

That "countinghouse" prompt is a bizarre one for sure--reminds me of the "breast milk" debacle I pulled last year. Oof!

Done. First time doing fairy tale, I fear I might have made it too formulaic (and also I'm not convinced they'll accept my witch's book of potions as a cookbook) but after having nothing overnight (thanks Emma Raducanu) I'm just pleased to be going to bed at a sensible hour.
I'm toasting this story's birth with Ovaltine.

My buy for the next round just in awe that you got something that might even be in the realm of poli-sat!!
