It seems that the founder and my other co-founders have been terribly busy lately. I want to apologize on behalf of all of us for expired submissions, lack of contests, and more. I am working on getting things back on track and so here are some ideas and suggestions. Please let me know if these work.
1. For people who submissions expire, if I come on and see that it has expired, then I will go and invite the submission back to the group. You would only need to approve it being in here. I will do submissions on Thursday evening. If I miss your submission, then please let me know in a note to either me or the group. Thank you.
2. I am thinking we need to have more prompts, but we are about to have a Halloween Contest. The contest will be due by November 18th and I will mention more later on in this blog entry.
3. Previous contest winners: If there are still some things you are missing for prizes, send me a message. I will work on getting things out to you as soon as possible.
A simple supernatural theme with a twist
A warlock comes alive on Halloween and must find happiness before its over.
A ghost becomes human for one night only for the ghost to realize everyone else was a ghost too.
Or something to that effect. I apologize that I am not that great at making examples.
