I'm a first-timer who totally blew the submission in a flurry of Haste to upload, without consideration of the posted limitations, so I presume I'm out of the race before it even started, just because I couldn't retract (or edit) my entry after it was sent, in favour of a more suitable item before the deadline closed... Of course the guidelines say that it "may" be disqualified for an infraction, I suspect that that caution is a rather diplomatic way of saying "will". I'm pretty sure that the guideline forbidding multiple entries is even more iron-clad, so I elected just to sit back and watch the rest of the competition, after I finished cursing, ironing my hands, and beating my head against the wardrobe. :-/ There'll always be next year, I suppose.
Hang in there, Terminal. In my editing back down to under 300 words, one thing got left rather vague in my description, but I'm still hopeful.
We're all in this together, and if we don't go forward, we know better for when we decided to do it next year.
Oh, I know just how creatively evil you can be, MU. I remember what you did with Percy's ashes...
This was the first year I was conscious it was coming up, and I had an idea so I just figured I'd give it a whirl. It got my mind off some life problems for a few hours at least.
The decision to try was eleventh hour, as was the actual writing, so I won't be surprised if it doesn't make it this year. But getting my hands back into design is a good thing.
