I know, I know. I don't announce the openings and closings of submissions anymore. It's not really useful, because the slightest lag means the post will go up too late, and if it's a tight contest, that means you've missed your opportunity to get in.
At any rate, it's midway through the day, the first window (25 entries) has filled, and the second window opens at 7 PM EDT (25 more entries).

They're just scribbles in a notebook! There are no numbered items. I AM NOT OUTLINING.

There. I've admitted it.
