Yep, totally not finishing. Gonna have to put it up later in critique. Too much studying and paper writing, not enough time. Ugh...  :-\
Be not a writer, but a Storyweaver. For that, my friend, is how you'll truly leave your mark.

Submitted mine.
It ended up being much shorter than what I thought it would be (though I knew it wasn't going to be 1500 words).
Under 700 words? Huh. Well, that will have to do, I guess.  ???
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

At least I beat you on that  ::) 890 here.

The silliest, most non-sense story I probably have ever written and ever will. I wonder what future generations will think when reading it. But at least I covered the theme  :)
Slow and steady wins the race.

Voted! Finally. Loved a number of the stories and was, again, impressed by the quality. As usual, my picks came down to elements that personally worked for me. This theme inspired a ton of cool ideas. :)
