@OpenNovellaContest thanks for letting me know - and yes, you picked the right one. Though After All not making the shortlist had me weeping softly into my pillow!

@CrispinOTooleBateman We did indeed make the decision to put only one story per author on the Shortlist. That being said, in your case, all three of your stories were possible choices and we went with the one we liked the best :)

@opennovellacontest Yay! And thanks for all the hard work reading. I cannot imagine the load!  One question though; out of my three longlisted entries only one made the shortlist. Was this a decision based on only allowing one final entry per author or did neither of my other entries merit making the cut? Thanks. :) looking forward to the final five!!

@OpenNovellaContest Thank you so much for all that you do! I (and everyone else who participated in the contest) appreciate all the work that is done behind the scenes!
            
            With the longlist out, would it be okay if I posted an author's note and edited small mistakes within my work? It would shift my completed date. If it's not okay, I can definitely wait until the results have been posted.
            
            Thank you again!

Dear contestants, 
          
          We've decided to release the 20k milestone sticker early, so you'll find the download link at the end of this message. 
          
          But first, a little reminder: please don't forget to mark your finished novellas 'complete' if you haven't yet. And if you're doing edits, make sure to go back and recheck if it's still set to complete as Wattpad unchecks the setting sometimes when you edit.  
          
          And now, here's the sticker for you, the link will also be added to our sticker chapter in the contest book
          https://drive.google.com/file/d/1t9dfCwtvT-kY8rCM0yAiKW_A7uHyMW15/view?usp=sharing
          
          Congratulations on reaching the milestone!

@VaginaEmpire - It doesn't matter how long it takes to get to the 20k, you can put it on once you do.

@OpenNovellaContest wish I could use the sticker but I'm stuck in 3000 words so.....

Hey! If we've submitted already, does it matter if we do some quick edits between now and the deadline? Thanks in advance! :)

@TheNightSong - They don't mind, but there isn't a garantee the judges will see the edits. By this I mean your entry may end up judged before you get the edits done.
