Not trying to be rude, really, just trying to understand the process. Because I've always thought that the challenge was for the posting not just the writing. It's a challenge enough just posting on a single story for a year, even if you get things done earlier. I finished my other diary back in April, but still kept posting on it until December. Is that actually allowed, to finish early? The rules seem to imply that it wouldn't be but I hope I'm just confused. I mean it's your challenge and if that's the rules, it's the rules, I just don't think this particular rule about early writing makes much sense. Edit -- Who has time to write a whole diary in five days during the holidays?
