Please note that WE’RE ONLY ACCEPTING 100 MORE ENTRIES (STOPPING AT ENTRY #175) IN THE SECOND SUBMISSION WINDOW. We’re closing the widget at 175 entries, so if it goes over 175, WE WILL DELETE THE ADDITIONAL ENTRIES and notify those people that they did not make it into the contest.  After signing up on the widget below, go to the official contest information post here on how to send your submission.

    OMG Im going to throw up, lol I made it!!!!! *Shaking uncontrollably*

  • Anonymous says:

    how come the old list from this morning is showing up instead of a widget

  • I’m in! Yay! (Refreshed 3 times to make sure, it still says I’m #88 – which is really close to my number from this morning, ironically!)

  • Clara B. says:

    SOmeone please help I cant sign up!!!! http://writerette.blogspot.com

  • Artemis Grey says:

    I can’t see the widget ANYWHERE ANY BLOG NOTHING :I

  • Carrie-Anne says:

    That was quick! I was right there the moment the sign-up list went live, but it was already filled up before I even had a chance to enter!

  • 🙁 man the widget never showed up for me i came on right at 9 and it was the old list and each time i refresh it’s still the old list

  • Clara B. says:

    Sorry! It didn’t give me the option to until I left a comment! So Sorry!

  • I think the widget crashed for a minute. Refresh & it should come back (it did for me)

  • Ryan says:

    Click on the title of the BLOG!
    the same thing happened to me!

  • It’s working now.

  • Ryan says:

    I mean the title of the post.
    The widget doesn’t appear unless you click on the post title.

  • The widget took several refreshes for me to show up, but it finally did. *crossing fingers now*

  • Hali says:

    Looks like I am 129! Hooray! Off to post my entry…

  • A W Exley says:

    I’m 154, but not sure if that means I’m in or out, wasn’t it only taking 100?

  • erinpetti says:

    okokokokok …phew!

  • Kimberly says:

    This comment has been removed by the author.

  • Artemis Grey says:

    Not for me, although obviously I don’t need to keep spastically switching blogs, since it filled up already. *Le sigh*


  • Kimberly says:

    Holy cow, I was shaking too!!! I kept refreshing and couldn’t see the widget, but I saw the numbers ticking up and up. I think I made it…

  • Dani Nau says:

    I couldn’t enter the widget!! I was here right at 9:00 and it wouldn’t show up for me. I could see the numbers going up but it wouldn’t show up. I don’t know what happened. I was waiting all day for it too. I’m disappointed.

  • I had the same freaky refresh, refresh, refresh (no new entry anywhere) freak out moment as many of you. I even went to twitter to post a comment and saw a false alarm tweet, clicked back and there it was just in time. I BARELY made it.

    My question is this: Since the list contains the 75 from this morning, does that mean the top 150 are officially *IN* and the rest will eventually be removed? If so, then I made it. If not, I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

    Congratulations to all who made it in. What a crazy stressball of weirdness!!

  • Kimberly says:

    Literally shaking right now. Signed in right at 9 and there was no widget. Tried a minute later and I came in #173, I didn’t realize they were accepting that many.

  • I believe only 150 are in. The same thing happened to me. The widget wouldn’t show up, took until about 9:02 and by then it was too late. Said 130 at first, then changed to 161. Sigh.

  • Danielle Nau says:

    I am so bummed! This is a great opportunity and I was waiting all day for it. I even took the day off of work so I could be here to sign up because I was so excited and I knew how quickly it would go. I have been shaking all day and then it wouldn’t work.

  • Kimberly says:

    So confused. Does anyone know if all of the #’s above 150 are in or not?

  • They decided at kind of the last minute to accept 100 tonight, so with the 75 from this morning, there’s a total of 175 entries. So if you came in under that, and still see your name up, you’re in!

  • Nikki says:

    I think anything above #175 is in. The first 70 are from this morning. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. Because I’m #160…

  • Brenda Drake says:

    We took entries through 175

  • Kimberly says:

    Yay! You just made my night! I barely made it. Thanks so much for the extra entries!

  • Brenda Drake says:

    I’m sorry about the widget thing. I feel sick. It was my fault. As I was setting it up some people entered early so I had to delete them and reset the widget. I really am sorry. ;(

  • I was just like the rest of you. Refreshing every ten seconds. I even had all four blogs in separate tabs. I was counting down and then about died when the widget wasn’t showing. I was over here cursing & throwing objects at the walls as the seconds slipped by me. Then, out of no where, I clicked the comments to see if other people were having the same trouble and the widget magically showed up. At that point I frantically typed my info in, laughing to myself and somehow I secured the #165 entry. After reading the morning contestants comments, I for sure thought there was a thirty second window before the entries booked up. I can’t believe I made it in. Add me people. Let’s network. Good luck to all!

  • Artemis Grey says:

    Oh Brenda! It’s not your fault! Things just happen. That’s technology for you, (spoken like the longhander I am 🙂 and sometimes tech just gets it’s own ideas. I mean, Skynet is out there. Don’t feel bad! You guys are supreme beings for putting this kind of thing on for all of us! Anyone who gives you crap over a digital blerp can come see me *cracks knuckles* *sends hugs to you* Seriously, don’t beat yourself. And that’s an order!

  • Amber says:

    I was one of the first people and I got deleted. I refreshed several times and saw that I was 81, so I went ahead to my blog, posted my entry, then sent the email like I was supposed to. Then I came back over here to see who all got in and my name was gone. I am physically sick because I have been preparing for this for weeks, and have been sitting and waiting at both entry times. 🙁

  • Brenda Drake says:

    The 75 from the 1st submission was included in this one so that the entries numbers would be correct. Those who made it in are listed above now. A total of 175 entries.

  • Jacky Gray says:

    Aw Bren, don’t worry, by the looks of things there will be other opportunities for people who suffered at the hands of technology. I thought I was going mad when I saw half-a-dozen names at 8:57, then it was like a feeding frenzy. There were tears and prayers, but the Angels were on my side. I have chocolate-covered chips and cinnamon latte if it will help….

  • Guys, there will be another opportunity TOMORROW. Because of the technical difficulties they are going to open another window for 25 submissions!

    This is what Brenda said on Twitter: “The new submission time is 12PM EDT tomorrow. I will post deets on my blog soon. #TheWritersVoice Please RT! We’re taking 25 more entries!”

    Spread the word!!! 🙂
