It's great fun once the stories go up and you start to see the votes coming in. I'm glad somebody else is staring to feel excited about it afro

Two more entries today, so we're up to 28 now. Great stuff smiley

Bloody hell, that's a lot of reading next week. At this rate, you might need to divide us up into heats  grin

Might be time to invoke the "swamp" ruling:

Although I'll be as keen as everyone else to see who the winner is, I've got to agree with delboy on this one. A couple of weeks to read the stories would be cool.

I agree we're going to need a bit longer to do justice to the judging process. The thought of having to try and read them all in a week fills me with dread (especially as I'm doing NaNo too)
