    I thought I had sent it two weeks ago, but Atthys says he never got it. I resent to him this morning. I had asked him to look over the punctuation.

    I hope ‘Hell In A Handbasket’ will do. Not a story, says my Facebook friend, more a character study. Is that acceptable? I don’t know.

    Have I cheated by pulling a chapter from Sly? I’m sorry. I am so focused on my big story that I can’t think of anything else.

    Okay, you guys. Nobody’s talking (but me and GD) so I will.

    I just bopped on to Medium after being absent a few weeks, and the whole format has changed. Used to be your new post entered the front page upper left and moved down and out as new material accumulated. So you were sure of being seen, if only briefly. That doesn’t seem to happen now.

    How the hell do you get noticed now? I’ve asked for advice on Scribophile. Those Scribbers are all over Medium. They advertise in the topic devoted to the site and give a link to their story. People landing on the site cold, how do they find me?

    I have an answer: your posts in the feed are no longer visible to you. But they’re there. I have three new followers in about the last week and I said, how the hell did they find me?

    I don’t have a good feeling about this, based on this response. Quite worrying.

      Not to worry, Mimi. We currently have 33 submissions. And you know writers. Many submit just before the deadline.

    With 33 entries, I have no expectation of being included. But if I am, I have a few more tweaks to my piece.

      Curtis sends Atthys & I the submissions to read, but the author’s name has been removed. We read & evaluate stories referred to by numbers. So, I don’t know “who” we like, but, if you have tweaks in mind, Mimi, you should tweak away.
