Yeah, welcome SweetOblivion. I was at University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the 1970s. Had student digs in Gateshead. In winter the water froze in the washing up bowl in the kitchen

Good morning from the east coast U.S.A. crew, returnees, and cadets! We will be launching both the official challenge and its sister prompt challenge at 6:00 AM, EST ( GMT - 5 ).  Australia and the like: you may go ahead and write today, then post to the comp tomorrow! After that you should be on track.

Once the challenges have been launched, please remember the following:

YOU MUST COPY/PASTE YOUR POEM TO THE CHALLENGE.  Please ignore the "Enter Competition" button at the bottom. These entries cannot be shared from your DU profile.  However, after you paste to the challenge, you can post to your DU profile.

Also. . .

1. The title of this thread will be changed from Registration to Discussion.  This means any questions, comments, blowing a gasket, screaming, questioning the Universe as to why you did this, begging for mercy on the rules, etc. will be posted here throughout the challenge.  

2. Absolutely no banter, off-topic comments, suggestions, blowing a gasket, screaming, questioning the Universe as to why you did this, begging for mercy on the rules, etc. are permitted in the challenges.  

Any such will be removed by a moderator.

3. Additionally, no graphics or images are allowed to accompany the poems in the challenges, with the exception of script graphics and daily roll call by Team NaPo.

The Team has a lot of responsibility and need to focus on submissions, not fish through pages of banter and/or memes/images/graphics.  

4. This is a HUGE NaPo, PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE THE TEAM DIRECTLY.  They will be busy with their assigned duties as well as writing.  If you have an open question, come to this thread.  If it's private, then please message Johnny or me.  If we're not connected through DU, please email poeticmedics@gmail.com.

5. Believe in yourself, and the ability to complete NaPo.  Remember, this is NOT a competition; we are all equal.  This is a writing CHALLENGE, which allows you to step out of the box in regards to perfection and capabilities.

If you have not yet familiarized yourself with the rules, please do so BEFORE the challenge begins.

We wish you each the best of luck throughout this challenge and are here to fully support you.  YOU GOT THIS!

Pardon, Capínís of the STANZA, Iíve countered 22 of the original returnees so far!  Looks like only a few left to go.  Any word?

And I donít know if this will make any difference:  I donít know about other states:  March 8th, all of us in California lost an hour going forward from PST to PDST ( Pacific Daylight Savings Time ).  Do we need to be re-syncíd? Thank you.
