Story Contest, second place

Thanks to all who voted for "Mixed Messages", my entry in Susanna Leonard Hill's July contest. If you haven't heard, I was awarded second place! Congratulations to Cheryl Secomb and the rest of the participants, especially Tina M. Cho, whose story, "Fishing Boat to Freedom" had my vote.
The contest was not in my usual line, appeared during a particularly hectic week, and boasted challenging criteria. Trite as it may sound, I felt like a winner just for making the deadline. To move on to the finals was encouraging. To be counted among the winners by my peers, a highlight. The short story format has found a new place in my heart (and in my idea note book.)

Thanks again to Susanna and all.
