Ended up rewriting mine. Same basic concept, but I changed one of the major aspects. Apologies to anyone who already read it.

I'm finishing up tonight with some luck but might try and polish it tomorrow during my break. Hope it doesn't come to that.

Argh, can we still keep it to tonight?? I'm almost there, writing the last lines but I'm 100 words over and wrote most of the ending while drunk, so need some editing and working most of the day :-/
Should be done before late this evening.

Whoop, I'm in! Love my story this time around, though I'm still sticking with my iffy theme of Gods and devotion like last month, on a different variation this month.
I'll edit it one last time tonight if I can but happy to let it go like this if I can't make it on time.

Argh, Okay, I see the topic was closed, is it okay if I send you a final edit @ScarletBea to correct the typos I couldn't pick out on my break?

Done!

Weird question, but if we don't win are we allowed to use them for other things? I sometimes post little stories and whatnot on my website and I'd like to do that if it doesn't get picked.

You can use it for whatever even if you win. It's your story.  ;)
