    I would like to formally request an extension. I have a piece that I've been working on for this month, but which is solely on my laptop at home, and I am on central time and there is no way I'll get home in time to post it by the 7PM EST deadline. If I could be allowed an extension of just a few hours that would be sufficient, but I understand if that's a bad precedent to set.

    Sorry Andrew, having connectivity issues, just saw this. It does set an unfavorable precedent, but if it's ready as in right now, please PM it to me and I'll allow you to enter. I need to have it before I set up the poll which is late for the first time ever because of my connectivity issues. Hate Fios. Ugh. I appreciate that you made the request public so everyone understands the method to my madness, but you should have PMed me also. I would have seen the request much quicker. I'm going to PM you now, also.

    Oy, Andrew, you're killing me here. They are shutting our connection down for twelve hours, I need to get this poll up and running before then. I can give you fifteen minutes more, but then I have to proceed with the poll at which time I will no longer be able to accommodate you.

    Apologies, love, but time is running short and I don't want the poll waiting another 12 hours so I must proceed.

    There are a bunch of excellent entries this month. Varied in style, form, and interpretation. I want to offer all a hardy Well Done!

    This Bell challenge has been frustrating. Two started draft's and two deleted started draft's.

    I needed to rewrite a chunk too, but got somewhere in the end.
    Sometimes I write several part-versions and end up posting nothing, so at least I'm over that hurdle this time.
    Do you ever find yourself wondering which version is better?

    Yeah, I looked at my notes and saw something which became what I posted for the contest. Letting it sit and then a nights sleep helped. Sometimes but not as often as earlier in my writing.
