Like what Time? I submitted one. And I got a response back saying it will take some time to get back to me.

Eek! I submitted mine on Wednesday and never got an auto response. Shocked

Me neither.

You guys have stories from Cate and I, right?

Cheers

If anyone got an auto-response, they sent it to the wrong e-mail address. I assume Calseen is Calvin Seen, right? If so, Calvin, do you want us to just consider it a regular submission? You got it submitted in time, but you didn't know the prompt.

Limit was 1,000, right? Make the first 1,000 AWESOME! End it on a cliff-hanger. Haha.

How about ending it mid-sentence?

Nah, just give it a 2500 word title. Ken can cope

It's my own topic, I think Regular Submission. What does that mean?

Well, you sent it to our regular submissions e-mail address, not our contest address. More importantly, though, you did not ask for access to our contest forum so you've not seen the contest prompt. Thus your story is likely not on that subject.

You seemed to imply your submission was for the contest, so I wanted to know if you just wanted us to consider it a regular submission.

I followed the instructions at: http://www.shocktotem.com/guidelines.html

can you tell me what the prompts are? PM the prompts? I think my piece is shocking and may fit in to one of the prompts.

If not then I want in on the regular submission. Thanks.

See, I didn't even consider that. I bow to your evil genius!
Well, there's next month. I'll start working on the title. ;-)

Calvin, our guidelines on the website are different from our monthly contest rules, which are posted in the first post of this thread. This month's contest is over, though, so keep checking back for the next contest.

We'll keep your submission in our regular slush pile. rockon

By slush, you mean it's up for this Saturday's contest? I just edited my piece, was wondering if I could resubmit.

Calvin, you cannot submit anything for the contest because (a) you didn't request access to the forum thus never knew the prompt, and (b) the contest ended on Saturday. Since your story was obviously not completed, I will delete it from our queue. You're welcome to send it in again, but not for the contest, for reasons stated above.

Nope. You've got about three weeks until that one starts. =)

You can now see it.

Hey, Ken and crew. I'd love to have access to the contest forum. I love reading new fiction and it'd be fun to enter.
Thanks,
Lee
