Thank you so much! :), and I have thought of a new topic for November:

DECISIONS, DECISIONS!

What compels us to make the choices we do, and to act on them? Why do we choose one path over another? Do we carefully weigh the "pros and cons" of each decision we could make, or do we "go with our gut"? Do other people influence our decisions, for good or ill, and if so, how? What are the results of the decisions that brought us to where we are, and to whom we are?

Enough philosophizing! :)--the deadline is (tentatively) November 16th.

Enjoy, and I can't wait to read the entries! May the best "decider" win! XD

You're welcome! :) I chose the "Decisions" topic because of something I hope you will all do on November 4th, but as the topic says, that's your decision! *wink*

Good topic Tysy. I just wish that I had enough time to participate in it. :( I enjoy reading the stories though.

Congrats on your big win, BTW. :D

The Presidential election in the United States. :p I'll do my best to get in an entry this time, but school might get in the way (I shall give it my best effort, nonetheless).

Ooooh nice topic. Pretty open. I will absolutely try my hardest to get something in, which nevertheless probably means I will fail to do so :( Oh the travails of being a fan-fic writer...

(sigh) Actually, I think I'll have to stay on the sidelines for this one...don't want to start too many fan fics at once...:(

Same here. I'm writing my new fanfic on paper first, so it takes extra time.

You know, writing on paper first then posting sounds like a good idea, thanks LordoftheFish and Endorenna!

Since there has been a shortage of entries I am extending the deadline for Thursday, November 20. That gives and extra few days to work on stories. Let's see some more submissions. :) --JM12

Can i submit my story? is this about submitting stories we wrote?

JediMaster12

Yes. You can submit your stories up until Nov 20. I extended the deadline since there was a lack of entries and it gives a chance for the late bloomers to give an extra polish. -JM12

Is it possible I could give some extra polish, or just some polish and re-submit my entry given the extra time?

Which part of the rules am I looking at the one that said the stories must be entered by the deadline and then all will be shown at once when the deadline is up? or the part about making sure your story is finished before posting as you cannot go back and re-submit?

I figured if one rule was bend-able so was another. I submitted very quickly as I knew I would have very limited computer access between the time I wrote and the first deadline. With a moved deadline I have time/opportunity I did not have before. So what do you say?

You are going to have to delete the original thread. There's rules posted for entries.

The rules are right here. (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=175496) It is specified that you will not be able to see your entry after it's submitted and that they must be submitted by the deadline.

No--you cannot put the story in CEC and then move it to Javyar's. That would give people an advance view of your fic and that would potentially give you an unfair advantage. You'll have to enter a different story.

I wish to apologize for my rather disrespectful post that I placed here earlier today. It was unintentional and ill-though of, and I hope that the moderators and administrators will forgive me for the wrong that I have done here. I am sorry for what I have done, and am deserving of the punishment.

But if you have already submitted it, then you cannot do anything about it because it is already in the queue. If you already submitted then you can't change it. That is why there is the rule about making sure it was polished before submission.

Absolute last call for entries! The fics will be up in an hour or so :)
