Interlude: Contest Countdown

Not much time left.

I've been asked by a couple of writers that have entered the contest if I will be posting the stories that were submitted.

The answer is yes, if that's what the writers wish.

As is the policy on the site, the story rights are those of the authors and, if they wish to have their submissions seen by a wider audience than those that are sitting in judgment, then they will be posted.

Also, I've been asked when the contest results will be made public and I have decided that all judges should have made their selections no later than April 15.

If I get results before then, then that's when they'll appear.

Otherwise, figure on Tax Day here in the States as the absolute drop-dead date that I should have answers for everyone.

After that, the winners will be announced and I will contact them via e-mail to arrange payment for their hard work.

Okay, last bit of business.

If there's anyone out there still sitting on a story that they want to enter, you have until 11:59:59 CDT to submit it.

Anything that comes in at midnight CDT will not count.

I can't wait to see what the judges have decided. I will keep everyone updated.

April 15th. IRS tax day. You are a cruel, cruel bastard.

I warned you about me and bastardry, Kieran.

In actuality, though, it's an arbitrary date. I settled on it because it's halfway through the month of April and it gives everyone enough time to decide which story they're going to choose.

Still, I'll plead guilty to being a real sicko where it concerns symmetry.
