That means you're still in it - provided that you get the entry in. :)

Everyone else - that gives you 24 hours to get back in there, if you think it needs a little more work!

So is that 7:00 EDT, Monday? Or from when you posted your mercy?

Also looking for concrit. Wasn't going to, but I need it.

Thanks for the mercy, Gary!

Hm. I would have done something totally different had I known I could have had till Monday to work on it. The idea I was going with was much more complex but I didn't think I could get it together in time. So, I cut bait and posted.

Now I feel like I'm on a bubble.

As to whether to go back and try the other version?

You could always take a crack at it and see what happens. If you like it better, go with that one!

Well, no. I started working on the other version originally, but realized I needed more time, so I abandoned it and spent time writing the piece I posted.

If I knew from the start I would have had an extra day, I could have worked through the original and probably have gotten it up and running. It was simply a matter of having a block of time. Going back to it now isn't something I can do, which sucks because I think it could have been one of my most fun entries.

We'll see how it plays out...

:( I know how that goes. Finishing, finishing coherently, and finishing well are all variables that are very much affected by the deadline.

I feel the same way. I wrote and posted mine in a movie theater waiting area, because I was trying to balance my desire to participate in LJI and being a good friend/girlfriend (who also happens to have spent Saturday working on my house to get it ready for a baby and imminent family visit).

I'm glad for the people who get a second chance, but I would have done things differently, too, knowing I had today.

Dang, I wish I'd known about this before I was up until 2 am making sure to get the first draft of my story to a finish!

Isn't that always the way, though? ;)

On that concrit. I'll ALWAYS take it. Attack my work, tell me what you think is missing... rip me to threads.

Also Gary, you're being nice... do we need to start taking away cookies again?
