no no no no no
are the words running through my head and out loud in this room (but with expletives in between) because, ****, it turns out that I have sent my story with a mistake - a paragraph which I copied and pasted to an earlier part of the story is also still in its original place, at the very end, meaning it appears twice.
I am so annoyed at myself.
It clearly states in the rules that entries cannot be altered after they've been submitted. I am so disappointed.
There's a contact name and email.
Should I send an email explaining what has happened?
I don't want to irritate the organiser by emailing, but I can't bear the thought of it being read how it is now, with that glaring error. It's so bloody unprofessional either way.
