Okay, it'll technically be 11:59p.m. when The M.O. submissions close. But don't be caught out in the cold with your loot in your hand while the getaway car's halfway to Taos, if you know what we mean, metaphorically speaking. If you write about 70 words per hour (and fast typists can do that per minute), you can still get us your original story on the theme of “Long Gone,” and possibly end up in our Rogues' Gallery and/or see your short fiction published here!
