  1. Today…
  2. faved the story The Guardian.
  3. commented on The Guardian
    A promissory note, to come back and read, to enjoy the fulfilment of the promise of these first few pages...
  4. "messy to perfection"--love that!
  5. Sorry. The comma in the third sentence should be after "poignant." Time to quit. For today. :-)
  6. I love this. Great pacing. I love the associative way it progresses to a poignant and, deeply personal, sadness. The ending resonates like a bell.
  7. I enjoyed this. I love the exponential irony in Great Expectations and here you have added more. Good job.
  8. published Estella.
  9. I guess I can't delete my own comment, the first one with the typo. And the third one that repeats the second. Can anybody help?
  10. Oh boy. Something's going on.... Hmmm. Strong poem. I love knowing who's speaking and who's being spoken to.
