I'll just hope that you'd probably finish the judging before the end of this year. Or...Hello, and sorry for the lack of news. I'm on vacation in England right now and haven't had much contest-judging time recently, but am almost done with my first-draft reviews; I haven't checked with the other judges in a while, but I can do that soon.
Please do not post your entries until the judging is done (which should not take anywhere near as long as the Perspective contest - that was a very special case). It is unfair if some entries garner public followings before the judges have finished ranking them - unfortunately we are human beings and can be biased by the opinions of others, consciously or subconsciously, positively or negatively, and the entries not being public is in part a way of keeping the playing field level. If you would like some feedback on your entry before the judging is posted, you can send your entry to people you trust for private comments.
Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyat) from our broken archipelago might end up storm chasing you. Just ignore this line.
EDIT: Since you're like halfway, that reassures me that you at least did your promise. Albeit somewhat overdue.
