    I made this comment in my writer blog and wanted to share.

    Every time I enter one of these Morgen Bailey competitions I learn something new. The striking thing I observed in the stories that won in January was that not one of them read as if it had been whittled down. The language in each of them flowed naturally, yet all three told a succinct story in 100 words, an impressive accomplishment by their authors and one that I will strive to achieve for February and for my future writing.

    Given the number of stories you ‘disqualified’ last month because they did not share the title ‘The Monthly Checker’ is grossly unfair. That number of disqualifications suggests that you did not make it perfectly clear that that is what you required.

    You may recall that I asked you for clarification on what the subject was about and you did not mention it then, either. I am assuming that my submission was one of the ten disqualified as my title was not ‘The Monthly Checker’, which is annoying.

    Please ensure that you make future title-specific subjects plainly clear in future competitions to avoid a mass-disqualification situation arising again…
