Thank you, everyone. Some of you did A WHOLE LOT OF GUESSING AND FEEDBACK-LEAVING. I want to personally acknowledge the following, each of whom took the time to respond to 25 or more entries:

The gift of your time for your fellow writers is noted and appreciated!
The top 10 entries will post this coming Wednesday, and you'll have the opportunity to leave critique.
Up next? Our September Secret Agent Contest (last one of 2014!). Details will post on Monday. After that, it's all about the Baker's Dozen Agent Auction!
I've enjoyed the energy seeping through my screen from your involvement in this week's contest. My father-in-law passed away on Tuesday morning, so things have felt pretty off. (He was ill for a long time, so this was not a shock.) Mr. A is navigating the emotional waters of having lost a parent, and I am trying to support him without really knowing how (this is our first parent loss). Your ever-present enthusiasm and support for each other is a reminder of the vibrancy of life as it continues around us.
Thanks for that. And have a wonderful (long!) weekend!
