@down-in-flames @MadiMalfoy I have a question about the word counts! 😅 You mentioned there's a leeway of 10% due to the strange archive WCs, but we aren't submitting to the archives, right? But should we make sure that our word counts are under 110 according to the archive anyway? Or can it just be under 110 in whichever word processor we use? (I'm really sorry if I'm way overcomplicating things!) Thank you guys! 💛

Use whatever word processor you typically use! If you typically use the archives or google docs or microsoft word, it's all the same as long as it's under 110 words. :)

I'm putting in my offical complaint of a drabble being defined as 100 words. I'm not sure who, in the history of writing, decided a drabble was only 100 words but it's driving me crazy. 

However, I love the idea of voting anonymously.

okay, maybe a stupid question, but there's no space on the form for a title. If we post it with our drabble, will it be part of the word count?

We don’t need titles at all — the content members will vote on will simply be the drabbles themselves. Titles can be used later if you want to post yours to the archives after the event is over. :)

@magemadi @down-in-flames Uh...I made a mistake in one of the drabbles I just submitted. May I resubmit using the google form please? If so, how should I mark it as the resubmission?

You may! Just type "RESUBMISSION" at the beginning of the drabble so we know. :)
