    Since it's the holiday season, this is an early reminder to get your entries in before the end of the week. :)

    Reminder that you only have a couple of days to get your stories in for this contest.

    Also, I'll be on vacation this weekend, so I'll put the poll up when I get back on the 4th or 5th of July. The poll will still end on the 15th. :agreed:

    I find these contest threads very confusing.

    Where are the links with the terms and conditions, how and where to post your entry, subject matter etc etc etc??

    How are we meant to get our entries in with so little information?

    All the contests start at the beginning of each month and end on the 15th of the month. The rules and any relevant info about the theme, how to post, etc. are mentioned in the contest thread. You can also always contact me if anything is confusing or unclear.

    Since December is a busy month for a lot of people, do you guys want to postpone the next contest till January, or should I still put up the next contest at the usual time? I'm fine either way.

    I would miss the contest. Currently it makes me write things that I shouldn't have done without the prompt and the deadline. I need a whip both to start but definitely to finnish.

    If there were to be a contest, I would try to participate, assuming the prompt does anything for me at all.

    December is actually a pretty good month for me since I get some time off due to Christmas. I'd have to see the prompt before I decide if I want to enter, but the timing shouldn't be a problem.

    I say go ahead with the contest.

    Go for it, I've been busy but that ends week after next, so I'd do my best to be in.

    I'm looking forward to entering a contest even though I'm working. I won't cry if there's not a Dec contest, but I'd be a little disappointed to wait.

    I'm done with school on the 13th, which means I'm done with all my prescribed writing, which means I get to do fun writing. I'd very much like to see an FF comp in December.
