About the Book of Mormon Stories…

in 2010 Book of Mormon

I’ve got some bad news…

First a bit of explanation. I was clear across the country from my PC when some of you informed me you had not received the critiques on your Book of Mormon short stories. I got back to my PC the first week of this month and I immediately looked for the files.

They weren’t where I thought they would be. I continued to search to no avail. Then I remembered—and realized they were probably casualties in the great computer crash of Spring 2011. I went back through my offline storage files, but they weren’t there either. The only thing I can think is that I moved them from my main computer to the PC and the crash happened before my weekly back-up.

Unfortunately, the score sheets and line edits are probably lost forever.

However, I was able to recover the file where I gave each story a score of 1-5 and a brief summary of my thoughts. I will send that info to those of you who’ve requested it. I know it’s not the same but it’s the best I can do—and I sincerely apologize for both the delay and the lack of in-depth feedback.

Thanks for getting back to us and sending what you had, anyway. 🙂

Could you send me my score and your thoughts? I never received anything either. Thank you!

I enjoyed writing a B of M story. It is fun and a good experience. What was important to me is it gave me an opportunity to think about and focus on the Book of Mormon. I hope others who wrote stories felt the same way.

Oh, computers. What a doubled-edged sword. I'm happy to have written mine as it then gave me the idea to expand it into a novel. The novel is done and being looked at right now. I'll let you know if it sells!
