I thought we'd switched to a 4 month period, with 3 challenges per year, last year to give the authors some extra time.

Apologies, I hadn't realised, will change it now.

This being the first challenge I'll participate in, I've got a bit of a question. Is it allowed to have more than 1 entry? Say, I have 1 idea that takes 15K words, and one that takes 5K words? (assuming the total even counts across multiples?)



ginnyweasley777 came out of the woodwork on 2019.01.12 - 07:07AM to say:

Yes you can have more than one entry to the challenge. The word count only applies to individual stories, each entry being counted as a stand alone story, so it wouldn't matter even if you had 2 x 15k stories. Hope this helps!

Came up with another question. How close to the canon 'few weeks together' do we need to stick? I'm assuming at least "getting together in the last part of 6th year" close, but that can just mean the entirety of second term with enough creativity.
