There were some that were still well over the limit. Some of the best entries were too long according to Word. The challenge was twofold: be creative and amazing, and do it within the constraints. I almost missed the word limit. Lol
It took me 5 separate and completely different iterations to get the size of mine down to 350 words. I started from the first day of the contest and barely got it done by the second to last day. I honestly would have preferred being allowed to write more like 700 or 1000 words for this, but I think I did enjoy the challenge of forced brevity in the end.
That's what it was all about though, right? Enjoying yourself, having a good time, maybe a little fun along the way?
