Yes, you are correct, I got the confirmation page showing my entry has been received. No worries, mistakes happen and computers malfunction. Maybe my story is the black sheep of last week's entries
On your second note, I joined FaithWriters that same morning and learned about the writing challenge two hours before the deadline. I was excited about it and I penned the story within 45 minutes. That is how I ended up submitting minutes before the deadline!
Regardless, I think the writing challenge is a great opportunity for new writers like myself to sharpen our skills but sadly I missed out on this one!
Sure, I will gladly send you a PM next time I'm submitting to a challenge to let you know ahead of the deadline so you could assist me in confirming receipt of my entry. Thank you very much for your help!!
