When it's Time, it's Time

All contests and activities on Writing.Com have a beginning and ending time. But how do you know when it's time to enter?

*Clock* If you look at your clock at home, it can tell you the time you set it to. That will most likely be the timezone that you live in. Those who live in the USA *CountryUS* are the closest to that magical time called "Writing.Com time." Those on the East Coast even get to live in that very sweet spot of not having to worry about it because there it's very likely that the time on their clock at home is the same time as Writing.Com time.

Since Writing.Com exists on the internet, we can access it from all over the world *Earth*. This means we might be in the United Kingdom *CountryUK* or in Australia *CountryAU*. Or some other place that does not have the same time of day as Writing.Com time.

So, if I don't want to whip out my world clock each time I want to take part in an activity or contest on Writing.Com, how do I find out when's the right time?

Easy. Look at the clock *Clock2*. That would be the clock in the left sidebar. It will tell you the day of the week, the month, day of the month, year, and the exact time in EST (Eastern Standard Time), or, as we like to call it, "Writing.Com time."

Many contest will not accept your entry if it's submitted late. Don't miss out on a chance to win because you were looking at the wrong clock *Clock*. Always check the Writing.Com *Clock2* in the left sidebar to be sure you're on time. Like the white bunny in Alice in Wonderland.
