I'm sorry if this is a silly question, only i'm new to Deviant and still finding my feet - How are stories to be submitted exactly?

This is most generous of you. :aww:
I have my reservations about joining- the first being that my work may not be up to par with the contest's standards, and the second being that others should have a greater chance at winning the points for their own urgent needs.

Apologies for the tardy comment! :forgiveme:

By the by, how are you? How is your son? Is he crawling yet? (Sorry, I cannot remember if you had already related this to me in our earlier conversations.)

Please enter! I would love to read what you come up with. :D

I'm very good, and so is my son (he's napping right now.) He's not crawling yet. Trying to sit up, but his back isn't quite strong enough yet. He's 5 months old. :)

Thank you immensely. Given your encouragement, I may enter. However, due to work regarding the Summer Fan Fiction Workshop here (I am holding as teacher), I may or may not be able to participate.

It's fantastic to hear you are both well. :aww: Aww! That is endearing. :aww: How has he been? 5 months already! Goodness, times does fly- it seems like yesterday you announced his birth here.

Quick Question though I think its most likely a stupid one.

Do it matter if it's over the 1000 mark in words?

MyDearAloysius Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Depends. If it's 1200, that's okay.

Okay I was just wondering cause sometimes I can get a bit into my writing and it goes from a few words to nearly 6 or 7 pages.
