I'm gonna have a bash at this one.  :)

Hopefully my attempt this time will at least be long enough to qualify for entry!

I hope someone does! Less than a week to go and no entries.  :(

I...forgot about this, oops. I'll dig out the thing I wrote when I've finished packing.

Would it be against the rules to write something in the future, wait until time travel has been invented, then travel back to April to submit?  I don't think I'll be able to enter otherwise.

Well, this is really Idlewilder's call, but as long as it appears in the thread by the end of the month within the current time-space continuum when the contest ends, it really shouldn't matter how it got there. :) Just my two cents.

I'm going to enter! My temporal stalker story has brewed in my brain all month. I'm going to squeeze it out this weekend and post it up raw.

Please do! I think I am about to post my insane story and it absolutely can't be the only one in there.

I think mine - if I ever finish it - is gonna be too long.  :-[

Can I post it anyway and just not be included in the voting, in that case?

Oh well it's May and I didn't get around to it. :( Been too focused on getting my book blog running properly again which is taking up a lot of my spare time. Oh well, one of these days! :D

I asked Idlewilder last night on twitter and he said this months challenge would be extended until Friday because the site has been downfor the past couple of days and the deadline was up before we got it back.  :)
