Dear Jessica, Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, and with such length. I appreciate it very much and suspect other readers/writers do, as well. I had a good laugh going back to “my story” to see “my” taxi driver certainly addressing his fare as “buddy”. I will say it is encouraging to know the editors pay attention to a forum like this, listen and respond. 1,100 entries is a lot to choose 5 from, pizza or no pizza. It was not so much that I was disappointed my entry wasn’t chosen, as it was the disappointing quality of those that were, for the exception of “The Key”, which I agree with James. It would require a certain amount of polish to meet publishing standards. It’s good to get an idea of how to approach the next contest. Thanks much, mj dills http://www.margojodynedills.com
