Today I received several extension requests. If you've read the sshg_promptfest's rules, schedule, and submission guidelines (scroll down to read them), you know that there are no extensions to be had; the fest's deadline is firm, and that deadline is by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on 30 November.
I know that this is a busy, trying time of year for many people for myriad reasons, but those reasons have no bearing upon the deadline. If you are unable to meet the deadline, please take a moment to let me know (sshg.promptfest [at] gmail [dot] com), and then accept my invitation to follow the fest as a watcher-commenter when it runs in January 2014.
P.S. So far, eight people have dropped the fest and 20 people have submitted fan works, which is a decent state of affairs at this point in the production period. :D Good luck to the 27 of you who are still creating!
