I e-mailed them this week to report another issue missing, this one July 2009. The first time they credited my account with an extra month were prepared to send me another copy.
Lo and behold, rummaging through my book bag I found it!
I called them up and told them to cancel my complaint. They were very nice about it, although I felt very sheepish. I recalled how one classmate my senior year of high school told our teacher someone had “abducted” his pen; then he looked amongst his other pens in his book bag and—you guessed it—found his pen.
If you love to write but don’t have a subscription to The Writer (or even Writer’s Digest), I strongly recommend you do so.
