I really liked her too! Not quite there myself in all aspects but its a beautiful goal!
You turn a lovely phrase and include some great details and express your MC's thoughts very very well. She was completely believable. Good job!
I feel like I've found myself here! Thank you for putting "our" certain age into such great words and phrasings.

So much I could relate to here. Age is a state of mind and there are certain privileges we grant ourselves because of it. Good job.

I really like this one, it gets my vote, not only for content but you did a good job writing it too.

Congrats on your 2nd place win! You really wrote a fun story that speaks directly to women, especially those of us getting to be that certain age. LOVED it!!

I'm evolving into the woman you wrote of... but not quite there... i enjoyed your story very much. It was well written, and your second place win well deserved. Congratulations.

Great piece Linda and deserving of a high ranking. You captured some thoughts of this man of a certain age also. One thing I might share with you is that when I get up in the morning and take that first look in the mirror,I'm so glad wrinkles don't hurt.

I long for the day when I finally "arrive". Beautifully done.
Allen, I feel a companion story from a man's perspective might be in order here! Love the observation on wrinkles, although, as I am currently emerging into the category of "the aging woman", I have to tell you, they are a bit painful...to the ego. I was recently told by a former High School teacher of mine that I would soon emerge into "a woman of a certain age" and they would not matter nearly so much.....hence the birth of this story. Thank you to each of you for your positive responses and enjoying the story. I certainly enjoyed writing it.
