What can we say, sometimes life happens. You do whatever is required and then go back to the fun stuff. We are back to the fun stuff… reading your stories.
We received more than three times as many entries as last year and we are about 3/4 of the way through. There are some AMAZINGLY creative stories. It has been a pleasure to experience them.
OK, we will be finished reading and choosing winners by the end of the month.
We apologize for the delay.
No worries on my part. I hope it was nothing serious. FWIW, as a writer, I’d rather have an editor take more time looking at the submissions than rushing through them. Plus, as you said, life has other plans for us sometimes than reading or writing; family and other things come first. Anyway, stay well!
