Oh boo - my suggestion was seconded but didn't make it. Never mind, there's always next month:)

The two options appear to be to recreate the poll or simply include BD's suggestion in next month's poll without a need to re-suggest/second it. The second is much less disruptive. ;)

Honestly, don't worry about it for now. Next month is fine:)

I'll take door number 2 - I'll pass it along to Harper. Thanks, Velo.

How long do you normally get to write a story for the competition? I'm still unsure whether I'll contribute because I'm concentrating hard on a certain voice and changing that voice mid story can sometimes make it difficult to find the original voice again. I'm hoping I can use the same voice for the short.

It's usually two weeks - from the first to the fifteenth of the month. Occasionally it varies slightly, so do check each time. Also, if you are on a tight deadline, take note of the time of day as well and which time zone.

Cheers. And are the number of words always the same?
