After a good bit of thought, I believe that it would be much more helpful if I give more detailed feedback to anyone who wants it rather than giving bare-bones feedback to everyone, regardless of whether they want it or will read it. So, here is the invitation! If you want feedback on your scoring, email me at jevanswriter at yahoo dot com with your entry number, and I will respond to you as soon as I can. The focus here is on those who didn't quite make the Forties Club. If you made it, then you succeeded at the main challenge. Those who placed had the most original ideas and deliveries of the Forties Club members in my opinion, but that is certainly subjective. Nevertheless, I'm always gratified to see how much my choices correlate with the overall Readers' Choice votes. In this case, it's even more remarkable given a total of 237 entries.
I think I'm still limping from the sheer size of this last contest, but I do think it was a blast! Unless I suddenly become sane, I'll be looking to do a summer contest somewhere in the neighborhood of July.
