That is a great question! When a story is not selected, the writer receives a polite private note - letting them know their story was not selected. Additionally, I'll ask to keep their story in the queue for the next day's lottery.

Upon answering your question, I realized I didn't address this scenario in my story. I'll make sure to edit my story and add this question and answer. Thank you for pointing it out to me!

Kind Regards,

KR
