But I did it - at 16.59 I hit the 'Yes' or 'Proceed' or the Whatever-it-was-called button (I was in a blind panic - they were strict enough to say entries received after 5pm would still be charged but not accepted! Like they have to say on TV phone-ins!).
And that is my story sent to the Manchester Fiction Prize.
And, might I add - I even unplugged the internet both today and yesterday to work on it.
Imagine what I could achieve if I did that more? I really should do that more.
