If you're planning on voting in the contest, you need to be a registered forum user.  To be a fully registered user, you need to make at least one post on the day you sign up (it's a spam prevention measure).  So feel free to make that post here. 

And if you're already a forum user, but plan on participating in the contest, feel free to post here too and introduce yourself.  If you're submitting a story, feel free to say so, just don't describe it.

Hello! *waves*

I'm a fan of Podcastle and Pseudopod, and I submitted a flash piece for the competition.  ;D

Just sent my story in :) I think this is my third EA contest now? Can't wait for the fun of reading the submissions.

My story is in. This will be my first time ever as a submitter. I've run a contest and voted, but this time I managed an entry!

I am really looking forward to this, although it is nerve-wracking.

This is so exciting! I can't wait to read all the stories.

Not the droid you're looking for.

Hello! I have no hope for my flash, but I got into this forum for the flash contest and I've met so many amazing people, so I had to write something.

So many good things can come out of this contest if you put some time and energy into it. Good writing and good reading, folks!

Can't wait to read everyone's stories! Feeling pretty good about the piece I submitted for this one! :)

This sentence serves no purpose, so you don't have to read it if you don't want to.

It's almost time, it's almost time!

Stiff competition this time around...I've heard from lots of good writers who have submitted (some of them already here in this thread!). Looking forward to voting!

Is it July yet? Is it July yet? Is it July yet?   <-- my brain right now.

Can you tell I can't wait to read all your stories? :D

You have a slight advantage over us 'Mericans. It's July 5 hours earlier for you than me! (Although Graeme, Aidan and the rest of the 'Stralians' are even mre futuristic.)

Get ready folks!  There are currently over 120 entries, and more are still flooding in here in the final hours before Friday night's deadline. 

It will take me a couple of days to finish formatting all the stories for the forums, and arranging them into groups.  But sometime after the 4th of July we'll be voting on which stories should be purchased and run on Podcastle!

Where did the month go!? I was sure I had plenty of time to work on my story and now... Well... At least I can read everyone else's submissions  :(
