    The challenge word is "frozen".

    Hearts, gears, planet surfaces, beings in stasis , Vulcan train of thought, might all be frozen.

    Does the weekend before Thanksgiving work as a deadline?

    Since we're already halfway into October, what would anyone think of having the challenge run to mid-December?

    Also, any parameters for the story, as in word count, previous works, that sort of thing?

    I also think the contest should run longer. I'd say until the end of November, though, for the time being, perhaps with an option of a short extension if the situation calls for it. We also need to account for the voting period. And we do probably want to have a December/January contest rather than a January/February contest.

    ^ I'm with Count Zero on this as far as timing and would also like any clarifications as Jioku no Banken requested. Thanks!

    Also, explaining what date that is would be helpful for those of us not in the US.

    I had to look it up as well. Thanksgiving is on November 28, the weekend before would be the 23rd/24th.

    It's been almost a week since the original post and I figure that's enough time for everyone to chime in on the deadline. I therefore make use of moderator privileges and set the deadline to November 30th, midnight CET (that's Central European Time).

    As outlined above, some flexibility is possible. So, if you have a story in the works as we get close to the deadline but are unsure whether you'll finish in time, let us know in this thread.

    It must be a USA vs Europe thing, but we don't have a November 31st over here..... :whistle:
