    Congrats, Jen. A clean sweep for you. You are not leaving anything for us. Best Story, Best Character, Best Dialogue… God!
    I told you that for some reason the public seem to like anything from you. Keep writing to entertain. Proud of you.
    Carrie, rising the Ladder of Success and getting closer to your goals . Congrats.
    Any, despite the need for me to ‘polish my wording’, let me be the first to congratulatensure you. Yours was another sublime story.
    God bless you all and those friends, who, stayed away from the contest.
    P.S: I don’t feel happy as I was selected for the wrong story. Dear Carrie, I saw the wrong story against my name during the voting. Thought the mistake would be corrected. It wasn’t. Whose mistake it was I don’t know but a very popular site like this should be more mindful of not making such grave lapses. Sorry, if I an turning out to be the pain in the ..back.

      Sorry my dear friend…that is totally my fault.
      We keep an online spreadsheet and I try to put the author name and story title in the spreadsheet as the story is posted.
      I must’ve pasted it in the wrong spreadsheet and didn’t catch it.

      We create the voting page from scratch on my lunch hour.

      Trying to save myself some time I apologise, I didn’t mean to offend.

      We also rely on the writers to point out if anything is wrong.

      We do this voluntarily and do not get paid or anything. We’ve been doing it for years because we love to write and love you and everyone who participates.

      But I’m only human so please let me know right away if you see something wrong do I can correct it! 😊

    Congrats All! I have some major commitments over the next couple of weeks that will be taking me to the land of no wifi, possibly, although I may remedy that.
