I was looking through Mom's old writings.
1. What struck me at first was that she signed it "Marge" instead of Margaret. In 1956, Mom was 20.
2. This particular short story was a narrative of how she and her roommate Nanci murdered their housemother.
3. Interestingly, she experimented a little with Margi. Note the classic circle / dot over the i.
5.Margi. (Sans dot.)
7. - 8. She evaluates Margye versus Margi.
Clearly, Margi (sans dot) wins, because that became her byline in college, plus it's the one she circled on the Margee / Margi / Margye test run.
