    As a minor point of order, and as the one tasked with creating the banner ads for this competition, I'd like to recommend that anyone submitting a prompt should consider and focus on economy of words.

    For example, since this is a fiction competition, there's little need to begin a prompt with "Write a story about". Try to pare it down to the bare minimum of words because there's only so much room in the banner, and if you don't do it, I probably will.

    I only bring this up because I'm seeing a lot of verbose prompts that, if selected, would leave little room for visuals in an ad without editing.

    So think short and sweet, if you don't mind.

    Thanks!

    Even if the prompt voting come up with a long phrase, we'll condense them into something workable for you. Thanks for your work on the banners!

    To those of you who have sent stories, sorry, I've fallen behind. They will be posted today.

    This month's comp ends tomorrow.

    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
