  1. How do you enter your vote? I checked the box, but do not see a way to submit my selection. Thank you.

    1. You must scroll all the way to the bottom, until you find the "DONE" button. ( It took a few times in my browser), click DONE, it should then accept your vote.

  2. I like the first liner: "We should slit her throat straight away. Why wait?"

    But, I don't see a "Done" button. Is there another way to vote?

    1. I've head some people are having a problem seeing the "Done" button in Explorer, but they saw it when they switched to Chrome. So maybe try a different browser?

    1. The line is the opening to a currently unpublished manuscript by one of our entrants.
