    Congrats to the 3 of you--too bad the prize couldn't be shared by all 3 of you this time--especially since this was one of the larger contests with 10 entries. All very creative stories. As for me, "always a groomsman, never a groom."

    I initially voted for "Weakling."

    Indeed...I've come in second in every contest I entered on here (other than old ones from back in the day that I don't remember), so I feel ya. Maybe someday :)

    Thanks, xanadu! Now if I could only find the other voter I got I figure I would have the beginnings of a real dang fan club on my hands. :meh:

    Got some notice with Sister Angelica in the Summer Contest too. Funny how in these short stories I've been writing out of a boy's voice while in the novel I am working on my MC is a 67 y.o widower. All in the spirit of fun and shared writing fellowship...
