TITLE: Sticking to a Deadline

Why is this topic still here? It’s nine twenty Central time, Thursday morning … which means after ten Eastern. By my simple calculations, the contest was over … more than an hour ago. I should not be allowed to enter these words. I love accountability … wherever I find it. I do …not love … the lack of accountability I see … everywhere that I see it. Which often seems to be everywhere.
I’d love to help, if I could, but it shouldn’t be that hard to take OFF the old contest webpage right at the deadline. Put up some temporary page that says “give me half an hour to get things together before I get the next contest posted” or something. That would be much better. I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one to appreciate that accountability. Thanks.
In the mean time, if you’re an entrant, and you find yourself past the deadline, ask yourself if you want to be accountable. If you do… don’t enter. I did just attempt to enter late, but that wasn’t to win a contest. It was to bring up an interesting subject.
And ps. Let me know if there’s a way that I can help. Seriously. Grace and Peace.
…. Okay, so I missed it by two or three minutes, but that really doesn’t change anything - other than that I get to be accountable by not “cheating” the deadline. I was ready to “cut and paste” into the contest, and I found the new subject had just come up. I’m not in a fiction phase, and I don’t have any facts about India, so I am going ahead with this. Besides, there is one little bonus for me. I can tickle a tiny spot on my fancy, by entering the contest first this week. That’ll entertain me for … however long it is before a second person enters (likely something actually about India!) behind me.

I agree with Lisa's comments on this piece. I'm not sure how this fits for the topic, though.

Believe me, I laughed my heart out right after reading your piece.Looks like a good way of fighting the writers block. Though it did not fit into the week's topic but you posted your article first and stuck to a deadline!
