Re: I apologize.... (Jesse)
- Hi Carol,
Actually I get paranoid if I am the last one to post somewhere. I
would love to read your critique, but it is not necessary. It's just
that I feel like there is something wrong with it but I can't put my
finger on it. This piece is already a novel, but I want the opening
to be as strong as possible.
Hope you had fun at the concert. I'm a fan too.
Thanks for responding.

- Dear Jesse,
You haven't broken the board at all. Like Carol, I have been so busy
with school, a mother with dementia, another ill family member, and job
and intern hunting that my critiquing has to be selective (or worse
eliminated) from time to time.
Sorry I offended by no reply. But life has been utterly demanding on
me. NO FAIR!
