Good on you, Di! :superhappy :thumbs

And Lynda, you are so right. I knew there'd be a last minute push (or at least was really hoping so when the tally stayed fairly low for most of the year). As Yvonne said, the more the merrier.

:eyes Okay...enough is enough. My chances are getting slimmer by the day.
NO MORE entries! :eyes


:rolling :heehee :rolling


Silliness aside, I think it's GREAT how many have entered! And I hope a bunch more will, yet, before the entries close.

Any guesses as to the final total? I know I have "heard of" at least a a couple more who will probably submit an entry. No doubt there are others I haven't heard about who are still working on entries, as well.

And Deb thought the first year for fiction entries there were around 50, so...

I'll throw out a final tally guess of 42!

Anyone else? :mrgreen:

I'll be SUPER conservative and guess 39.

(and mine will NOT be one of them. BUT - by the time the winner is known, my runner-up from last year WILL be ready for its professional edit!)

Okay. Call me a brainiac. Or maniac. I don't know. But my Page Turner entry is in....unbelieveable!!!! So, I know it's really no competition to the masterpieces of the others, but it's my little participation in something pretty cool 8)

Also, when I submitted it took me to a page saying my entry had been recieved...so I guess it's all good, right?

Love you guys. Going to bed, dreaming of my current writing projects: NaNo, the Weekly Challenge...and Page Turner

Oh, my goodness!!! :helpwobble
I'm glad I hit that "send" button before I read these posts!!! Otherwise, I do believe I might have chickened out!!

I am among THE elite :bow and my nerves are twanging, body's all a-tremble, and my head feels like it must belong to someone else!

Oh well, what's done is done; I just hope I can re-learn to breathe before I topple over in a dead faint.

I can't imagine any of you pros feel quite this way -- doesn't experience doing this make a huge difference in how you feel after you enter one of these? Or do you all feel pregnant, like I do?

Ack, ack, ack!!!! :cry2

Love & blessings on you all~
Kate

It must be quite obvious I'm a Newbie....

Woo-Hoo! Good for you, Sarah and Kate! (And everybody else, too!) :)

I know what you mean about the feelings when you hit that "submit" button. I don't know about anybody else, but I get the same feeling every time I enter anything in any sort of contest or competition. (Not that I've entered a lot. This is my first Page Turner, too, but I have entered a few other competitions, plus the Weekly Challenge, of course). And I don't see that changing. In fact, I strongly suspect it probably gets worse when one gets to the point of sending or showing something to an agent or publisher for consideration! :shock: :roll: :mrgreen:

Hope we get even more entries in before midnight tomorrow!

So---If you're hanging around here and still planning to enter, get off the forums and get busy! :fingerwag :nono2 :typing2 :mrgreen:
