The story doesn't have to be written this month, it just must be published for the first time this month. So, short answer, yes, yes you can.

I'll try to get something going - I have something brewing in my mind - but I won't be able to write it until the last days of the month due to other commitments, so I'm not sure I'll be able to make it. If not, I'll join the June one. Because there'll be a June one, right? :D

It could be noon or later before a new contest or the poll on this month's contest goes up tomorrow. I apologia for this and can only say it's a rough week that just ended and a rougher one coming.

Sorry.

Yes there is a lot going on Millie.  But on the upside I can just sneak in with a second story entry for this month.  It is called Mommy Dearest and is a story of betrayal of the innocent by a step mother who knows no better.
