Thanks for your submissions, everyone. Round One submissions are now complete.
What a great collection of entries! We will be very excited to turn these over to Natalie Fischer for judging.
We currently have 105 entries posted. We will take the first 100 entries, but we accepted 5 alternates in case we find duplicates or need to eliminate anyone as we review entries. We already eliminated one entry earlier because it was labeled a work in progress. (The rules clearly state that the contest is for completed manuscripts only.)
As we eliminate entries, we will delete them. If your entry still appears in the comments of the original post as of noon Eastern Time tomorrow, your submission will become official.
Final entries will be posted one week from today and opened for peer comments. Please refer back to the full schedule for upcoming rounds and new submissions information. This is a five-round contest, so the top 75 entries will be invited to submit an additional sentence.
Good luck, everyone! And thanks so much for entering!
