Just submitted.  Re-read it 5 times and found mistakes each time then just couldn't take it any more.   I'm a worse case scenerio kind of guy, kept thinking what if my internet is out Sat. night?  or power outage?  Glad to have it in but now worried I'll have a great idea to put in it tomorrow....

Good luck everybody!

How did you end up doing?

I'm thinking this poll will change daily.  I know my answer has already changed from yesterday.  Tuesday: partial outline, 3 pages written.  Wednesday: full outline, 12 pages written, wondering how to cut that down by 50%.

You're just toying with us, aren't you Chris?
 
Not unless "toying" is a euphemism for "procrastinating".

Yes.
