Deadlines and Other Dates

First off, today's the big due date for our Notes From Underground anthology stories. For any of the selected writers who still haven't turned in your story, you have until midnight PST to get them in to us...and we hope you do! (Or else, Nevets.)

Second off, don't forget that on December 21, we're doing our trivia/giveaway day. All day long, we'll be posting up trivia questions and giving prizes to whoever answers correctly first. I've been spending the last few days collecting some fun and silly prizes, so I hope you'll check in throughout the day!

Third off, check out Michelle's blog now. She's announcing something exciting! Okay, this isn't a deadline or an other sort of date, but check it out anyway.

  2. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

    :)

    I've signed off on the story and all that's left is proof-reading.

    I've actually worried over the details of this story more than I think I ever have before. I think mostly to its benefit.

    I've reached the point, though, thanks to the deadline, where I have no choice but to call it good-enough and let it go.

    Deadlines are handy for that.

  4. Lavanya, I'll cross everything I can cross for you!

    Nevets, deadlines are usually good for me too, even if they make me grumpy.

    Michelle, You're more than welcome. Congratulations!

  6. According to my wife, who proofread and called attention to some template problems which I ignored, the story is, "Creepy."

    @Lavanya - I hope yours is coming along!

  7. Nevets, I assumed your story would be creepy. I can see the madness behind your eyes. You feel like a brother to me. A mad brother.

  8. A mad family I'm proud to be part of, Pee Domey.

  9. Yay, Nevets! Can't wait to read it. Now my story for Friday...that's creepy.

  10. My Friday story is heart-warming. People hug. There's a marching band. It's very New Yorkerish.

  11. My Friday story is weird, but not in a dark way. More in an un-Domey kind of way. There's far too much action and dialog.

  12. I think mine will make people want to go eat a cookie to chase away the gloom. Oh well.

  13. I sort of expected kittens and buttercups from Scott, and I think the psychologically dark moments in Michelle's writing are just about her best...

    But I'm a little shocked to be expecting something from Domey where there's, like, stuff happening and people talking. I can't wait!

  14. Cut all the dialogue and action!

    I forgot to put the daffodils in mine. Nor are there kittens, but there's a good reason for that, which you'll see on Friday morning.

  15. O.k. I'm curious and can't find the submission guidelines on this site. Would you be so kind and reprint them here? I might just get the courage to submit this time.
    Thanks!

  16. Yes, Scott, good point, because kittens would be cheating.

    Lakeviewer: Aww, I'm sorry! You already missed the original deadline for open submissions. You can find all the rules at our Anthology site. Look up in the tab bar. :)

  17. Yes, no kittens allowed, Mr. Bailey.

  18. What about profanity? Because mine has profanity.

    ReplyDelete
  19. If kittens are out, fawns make a great alternative. Also baby seals.

    But baby seals don't deal well with profanity.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Profanity almost came up, but I decided to avoid it in the end. Aren't I a Carebear?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I tried to avoid the profanity for almost a full minute before I caved.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Care Bear, eh? What color and what tummy symbol?

  23. Just sent in my entry (with no minutes to spare..lol)
