Regular Byes expire at the Top 50.
Patreon byes (byes that people get at a specific level of being a Patron https://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027, that can only be given to someone else to use) were set to expire at 50, but I'm going to extend those to 40 as a special "thank you".
Those special "break week" byes that people earned, expire at the Top 30.
If you are doing the math, that means that next week will be the last week that the regular byes can be used. There are two people who haven't used any byes yet. If they can get to that point with them still in pocket, I may have to pull out something special for them!
The vote is going on now:
Or should say VOTES. Because there are two happening as we speak. There is the regular poll, and the Contestant Only vote happening with people sending me their ballots. I've received two already. I haven't responded yet. But I have received them.
This is as good of a time as any to promote an entry that you think needs to be noticed - or to make the case for why *you* should be making the Top 50. Be your own cheerleader! Even if it's difficult, that's something, as a writer, you should always be willing to do. (and it's something that so many writers struggle with)
