This is just a reminder that FIRST TIME PARTICIPANTS' SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE THIS SATURDAY. If you are having trouble meeting this date, you MUST contact me to negotiate an extension BEFORE the 10th, or I will consider you MIA.
SECOND TIMERS: your submissions are due in a little over two weeks. Same thing goes for you: if you are having trouble meeting that deadline (NOVEMBER 20), contact me about an extension.
I don't want to hand out extensions like candy, but I also don't want to drop a whole load of people from the fest, either. But, either way, the point is to keep in contact with me. I don't mind giving short extensions for a fic that is 95% completed and needs an extra week for beta. I do mind giving them out because you simply haven't done any work up to this point and need an extra few weeks to string me along. As stated in the rules, in some cases, I may ask for proof of a semi-completed fic or artwork before I grant an extension.
Please comment to this entry or contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) with any questions or concerns.
