    I'd like to keep receiving submissions. If you want to write based on the prompt for this competition, the deadline can be extended.

    I often feel this way about my work. I encourage you to submit stuff anyway ;) in the long run it works out!

    I would like to see new deadline sometime in January, as I most likely will not be able to finish my story before Christmas. I hope to get some time before New Year but I am not sure of that.

    I think that's a good idea. Perhaps due the end of January. Does that sound doable?

    I didn't know about the contest, so I'd do something if you extend the deadline too.

    Did you forget that there are people willing to help edit your story before you submit it? Who? :)

    I feel a new motto coming on - a version of that company in the US that fixes up houses. They say, "We buy ugly houses." I say, "I edit sucky stories." :) Heaven knows I've written tons of them myself!

    Now *this* my friends (and foes) is what "community" is about. So happy everyone could see it the way I envisioned it. Well done! Now lets make it a thing! :D

    *This* is how many great authors feel about their own work. You have all read my writing. Do you know (in fact many have heard it) how often I say "I think it sucks" or "I dunno, it just isn't working" while everyone who reads leaves comments as are in my personal writing thread... Royal! You are a great writer! Submitttt itttt

    By the Way - On this note - I am looking forward to another "Heart of Britannia Contest" ~winks~ Who will be the secret admirers be submitting poems to this year? Assuming it happens again this v-day ;)

    I missed the post for this contest initially and thought I missed the deadline. If it is being extended, I'll submit something.

    Oh good. I want to get something in on this as well but between helping out my mom (who had back surgery on the 9th and is doing remarkably well) and work, I'm a bit slammed. February 1st is perfect.

    Also, I'm with Vyrin. If you want someone to edit, feel free to hit me up. Most than happy to help! :)

    I highly recommend reading out loud or recording your own work to self-edit, if you can't get someone else to. You will find so much you would have missed, and assist us in identifying your work as narratable (I think I may have made that word up)!

    I'm having someone proof read my story. I will have it submitted in a short while.
