Oh well, couldn't come up with anything in the end. No last second miracle this time. No hunger to write during August. Forward we move, but my presence will be known in the voting  8)

As a new addition to the wonderful world of writing competitions, I would be interested to know when judging usually commences? Please excuse my ignorance.

It's usually when the next month's contest is uploaded. It probably won't take long - I guess @ScarletBea has been busy or something!  :P

Oh dear I forgot about the voting thread :-[

Considering that if I do it now, we'll have to wait until this time on the 1st of October to find out the result, I'll do it tomorrow morning :)

oh.  well.  that's interesting.

a friend of mine just read my potion story -- the kidnapped little girl who goes all cthulhu on the situation -- and said "hey, did you know stephen king already did a short story like that?"

cut to me, all like, "what?!"
