Anyway... submissions are over! wooo.

We have **199 total submissions** (wow... this is going to be fun) so I'll be posting all the stories over the next week, and we'll get this thing kicked off on September 25th.

This is a lot to tackle no matter how you cut it, so I think this is how we'll break it down.

We'll have 17 initial groups of 11 stories each, and one group of 12.

That will narrow it down to 54 stories for the second round, divided up into 6 groups of 9.

Semifinals will be 18 stories, so 3 groups of 6 which will give us 9 stories for the Final Round.

I hope you're all ready for a long journey!
