Thanks for the feedback guys and gals. I've pulled the story down temporarily because I noticed another short story contest that it might be suited for. Cheers!

I LOVE that short story. Short stories are my favoritest ever. I dabble in them, but this is fantastic, Wendy!

Have you spent a lot of time in Africa? It seems like it.

Wendy Boucher said...

Thanks friends.

Rocky-thanks for visiting and making my day.

Lisa-Thank you, I will.

Stephanie-Thank you. I spent a month in Africa several years ago. This is my first try at a short story since college.

Let's just say I would have voted for you. And I'm VERY IMPORTANT AND POWERFUL*


*just in case the real judges are reading this and have cause to reconsider.

Wendy - that is a great story. And like the others commenting here, I can't believe you didn't win.

Could it have been a hanging chad that screwed up the vote?

I LOVE this. What in the world won, if this didn't?

Wendy Boucher said...

Sigh. Nothing like internet friends to fill up your cup.

Thanks.

I enjoyed your story. Losing sucks. But I'm quite sure you don't lose very often!
