Submitted with 10 minutes to spare - I'm pretty sure that's a new record for my earliest submission ;)

It's done!! Not entirely sure what I wrote or if it makes sense, but I managed to squish my love for astronomy in there so I'm happy regardless!

Made some last-minute edits and re-submitted with 7 minutes to spare!  

NOW I'm having wine.

I still have to lesson plan, though, so apologies to my sophomores if my slides don't make sense LOL

Also, can we just take a minute to appreciate that the turn around for this round is 5 weeks instead of 84,000?

Does it say somewhere exactly when the results should come out? (I know when Round 3 starts and I'm pretty sure my story won't make the cut, but I am eager to see the feedback.)

To be fair they did have 6,151 stories, that’s 15.3 million words to sift through, and the next round is 1090 writers at a mere 2 million words. So the timeframe seems reasonable to me.
