Funny entry!
I'm drinking coffee as I read this. :) I had to smile at the changes to her life and her reaction to them. (and loved that she wanted to be supportive if he did write). I hope Joe doesn't give up. I enjoyed this!
Such a realistic slice of life, and told so well! With retirement not too far down the road for my own husband, I could envision myself in your shoes - what an adjustment! Kudos to you for being an encouraging wife and, like Beth said, I hope Joe tries again. Writing is not for the faint of heart! Great read.
Glad to see you back and writing; and congratulations on your EC with this wonderful submission.
Angela, I'm so excited for you. Super congrats on your ribbon AND your editor's choice for this winning entry! Happy Birthday!
Angela, this is so fresh and interesting. Both characters are endearing. On topic and from an out-of-box perspective.
Just love it.


I am so happy for you! :)

Wonderful entry!
Congratulations on your EC, Angela. You captured the couple's interaction as sweet and fun. I liked the different angle - an MC who wasn't meant to be writing. Great job!
Congratulations! Great story!! I'll be watching for your stories to appear in the Master's level!!!
My husband just retired and it's quite an adjustment. You covered this transition in a funny, original way. Loved it!
