Submission Deadline: 6:00 AM UTC, Monday, 22 October 2018

Thanks. Would do.

This is good. You should be expecting my entry

We look forward to your submission :)

I like the contest and would definitely try to participate in this contest.

We are happy to hear that! Please do join and support our Writing Contest


Here is my completed submission for your consideration.

Is there a prize for being the first entry? :)

This is great, you're definitely the first one. We will keep this in mind the next time we host a writing contest to reward those that make submission early, especially for the 1st Submission. I'll keep you updated surrounding Bonuses and Extra's

Sometimes I think holding off till the end to submit has advantages. More time to edit, assess the competitors submissions and so on. To counter this, maybe some sort of incentive for early entries is a good idea. Upvotes for the first X entries, @steembasicincome share (mutually beneficial in the long run) or some other bonus will create more hype and awareness for your competition and likely more entries. Just a little free feedback for your consideration.
