    Cynthia Adams1:
    Congratulations on your third place award for
    The Killing Wall.
    I think it deserved to do better.
    But then, my thoughts are obviously on a different track than the "Committee" as my work continually leaves them unmoved.
    They are a tough nut to crack and I hope you are proud with your successes.
    Keep up the great work.--Cynthia

    Mabaker: Jay I am going to ask for your help. Too many times I have entered contests, only to lose a placing for bad grammar. I wonder if I could ask you to look over a chapter I intend to enter in the Romance contest? I have written seven chapters so far, but I will take note of what you do and I copy your way. I thank you sincerely Anne.

    granny goes viral: Gee Jay,
    Still at it I see. Great going. Me, I am still struggling with getting myself working properly. What a struggle. No energy to write or even think most days. Hopefully surgery to initiate the dialysis process will take place this spring, followed by the intense training, followed by the process, followed by the restoration of some needed energy, followed by, well who knows? Barring any medical complications, which as I am learning can be multiple and dangerous. Oh well. If my fingers still work, and my brain is not drowning in urea, maybe I will be able to be productive in more ways than dialysis output.

    Jay Squires: RG, Margaret and Granny, you guys inspire me. Thank you for the congratulations.
