3rd September would be sufficient.

My great fear is I might win the challenge if I enter and then be stuck with the next one.

I'm in. I think. It's a busy week for me but I think I can roll one out. That's scary enough for me! Sept 3rd for the deadline?

Hey Blhuie, you probably already know this and I believe it is mentioned in the Challenge information thread, but for those of us who tend to skim and forget instructions when it comes to these kinds of things  ;D  sometimes it helps to pop in one of the games, such as, Last Person to Post Here Wins or into The MWC/Red Barren Bar to promote your challenge with a link and some friendly goading, if you are comfortable with that.

Also, maybe try to encourage a newbie or two from the Welcome Board and see if we can get some more enthusiasm into this forum.

That's how I entered a short story competition for the first time. Mark gave me a little nudge. When I read my story a few years later I was appalled but I'm grateful to have learned, forgotten, and re-learned a few things.

The more you write, the better your writing becomes.  

Best of luck.

Exactly.

I have no fear here and profound confidence in my lack of ability to capture a win in this competition. ;D
