I had envisioned entering, but an unexpected and unplanned medical occurance has had me laid up longer than expected. Best of luck to all entrants.....

I put my entry in through the submit a workshop, and it appeared instantly. I took the story out, but I don't want to miss out. Sorry...i must have done something wrong. I will put the story back after the deadline has passed. Don't want to have myself disqualified for putting my story up early...

I'm not going to make it with mine... count me out. Story got a bit more involved than I expected and that made it harder to get all the subplots to thread together as quickly as I'd hoped.

I'll submit it as a normal story submission a few days later.

I cannot speak for all the other entrants, but I'd be willing to wait a few days to let Shadar get there time he needs.

thanks for that, once you have the story finished we would still love for it to be submitted.

I agree. I'd rather see a lot of good stories.

And I just submitted a story, not sure if it worked so I also emailed it to Fats.

Pretty sure I won't get the other one fixed up in time. I submitted the best of the two anyway.

correct.

The first post says EST and now it's UTC, is that a thought out change or did Shadar confuse you? :P

I agree with wanting to see as many entries as possible but for me it is difficult to grant single entrants more time. It is then a question of how much more time, and maybe next time someone else wants extra time. It's a slippery slope. Plus, it takes away some from those that managed to get it in on time.

UTC is five hours earlier than EST, which would make the deadline 7 p.m. EST. But since Fats lives in England, should he have to be up at 5 a.m. his time to handle any problems with last-minute entries?

Shadar himself didn't ask for an extension, so I don't think others should.

I am working fast, if not a bit sloppily to get my story in. I believed I had until today, and all day to submit. So, am I too late? Can I submit mine in a few hours? 4 to be precise?

I should be tough and say no, but it will take me some time to get the blog posts and other forum stuff set up so you have your 4 hours, so you have until 0400UTC to post it.

I've spoken to shadar and he asked for a 48 hour extension and I've granted it.

But be warned that there will be no additional extension to the workshop, so for those who have already submitted their story and want to edit it or make improvements they have an additional 48 hours to do so.

So the final deadline is now 0000UTC Tuesday 22nd December 2015 at which point i'll set up the vote and blog post.

And now mine has disappeared. But maybe Fats and Woodclaw are creating a new section for the Workshop as it was reannounced, as opposed to the one with stories from last winter.

Yep, the new category has been created and at the moment there is 9 entries with 2 more expected. Also there will be a module just for entries that will appear below the Latest Stories module.
