You definitely should!
lol okay. I'll post it sometime this weekend. The ending is being difficult, and taking longer than I expected to get right.

Ah...I wasn't able to participate after all. Between full time work and full time uni, I just didn't have the time to write an entire story. Next year, I shall take first place!

Good afternoon / evening / morning / whenever you read this, writers!

A small update for you: I recently spoke with my judges, and it appears that so far (*knocks on wood**) we're on track for having everything done like we said we would.

Just figured you'd like to know where we're at!

Well, it's the 18th! Results incoming, I hope? Need to wait on judges in a different time zone?

Getting anxious over here. :P

If that's directed at me, perhaps I should just disqualify you, eh? ;)

I have one judge's scores, waiting to hear on the others, and will admit that I still have a couple stories to finish. Considering I have tomorrow off, however, I will be finishing them by then.

Delays are nothing new to this competition, and for that you have my apologies - but we do have a definite motion and aren't delaying by weeks or months.

Please wait just a little longer. Thank you! :)

Haha no no, I know who it's directed at, certainly not you. Forget I said anything, master Jedi.

Last time I wrote in NWC it took like 6 months to finish so patience is key.
The first shot is not the one that matters. The last shot determines everything.

Yeah don't stress, hugmeplz. I was really joking in my post anyways - besides, what's a bit longer going to do?

Ladies and gents:

It is with some reluctance that I have to announce that one of our judges has decided to rescind their judging duties. Thankfully, it is not a situation such as last year (Rest in Peace, MFA) - but rather that they became too busy with personal life to dedicate the time necessary to grade and judge each story as it deserves in a timely manner.

As such, I've got a little re-arranging I need to do. You will have your scores and announcements before Christmas.

Thank you for your continued patience,
=Jedi

Jedi, please recall that I have offered my judging services if needed :) Just send me the criteria we're using and I'll get right on it.
