  1. dunno about your wee tale, elaine, but on this missive, i’d close-edit the hell out of it, still

    but, that’s me…

    elsewise, similar rewrites work for me as well, crappy writer that i am

    your story sounds like a good read, though… grats! 🙂

  2. Laughing out loud here in Warsaw Elaine, thanks! If I may publicise the fact, as a beta I found this short story to be extremely well written and thoroughly entertaining and, in fact, so low on the crappiness scale that it didn’t register at all. And between you, me and the gatepost, I’m overjoyed that it’s going out to a wider audience!

    Well done you!

  3. Congrats, A-9. This is a tremendous achievement and I’m sure your story is a cracker.

  5. Finally I have a name for myself and a group to belong too. I too am a crappy writer. It certainly takes me forever to get anything done that is remotely readable. We need to start a support group. 🙂

  6. Ha HA! Charles, let’s set up in a church basement andI’ll bring the coffee! Fellow crappists unite!

  7. May I come too? In a burst of generosity and kindness the editors agreed to publish my story that I started working on in 1993 in the May issue.

    Yeah, sure, we just knock these out over the weekend. Triangulation is a helluva story.

  8. Terrific crappiness, but I couldn’t find the crappiness! You must have it hidden. Congrats on a fine tingler!
