I hate to beg for help. I asked for help last Thursday with my poetry reading skills. Now here I am asking for help again. I am definitely hanging my head and kicking the dirt with my shoe as I write this.
This time there is a time constraint. And rules.
One of my stories is in the Midlife Collage contest this week. See it up on the Home page: “Still Photo” by Luanne Castle. It competes with four other very short stories.
The idea is that readers (that’s you, a reader 😉 ) read the stories which are up this week. Then you leave comments on at least three of them. (Note: the comments only count if you comment on at least three stories). Not “atta girl” type comments, but the sort of comment you might leave on one of my blog posts. If you think my story deserves to win, by all means, say so in your comment and give a reason why.
If you don’t have time to leave the comments, please leave a Facebook “like” for my story! Here is the Facebook page.
The way they select the winner is through both the comments and the Facebook likes, with the comments being weighted more heavily.
I would be so grateful if you would read my story and the others and give the feedback that you are able to give.

Here’s my plan.
If my story were to win, I would like to use my award to design a contest for Writer Site–something you all can participate in. What do you think about that idea? I got the idea from the Paying It Forward segment on our local TV station.
Midlife Collage has a feature of interest to commenters called “Comments That Stick.” MC says, “We look for readers who write inspiring, enlightening or entertaining comments.” These will be comments that live on long after the contest for that particular story has closed.
