You hit the nail on the head! Great job!
So beautiful story very touching
That is how I feel sometimes. There are so many who can say it better than me. But,each voice is different and can say something in a way no one else can. (Did I get that right?)
The setting was a little surreal, so I wasn't sure I interpreted everything correctly.
There is so much that is illusive in this story which only makes it intriguing and beguiling. It kept my interest the entire way and I was able to put myself in both of your character's places - the one waiting for the visitor as well as the visitor himself - talk about juxtaposition! I'm not sure if the title of book was important to know, it may have hindered the mystery and left the reader feeling cheated for not being able to supply their own.
I was a little confused, but I think I've got this story figured out for the most part. This is a story for a deep thinker. :) I love how you use words - you make language beautiful. I definitely didn't want to quit reading.
Your talent for writing propelled me, eager for more of the story. You didn't answer every question, but allowed your reader to do some "introspection" :)
Suspense and intrigue!
Both Characters were very much alive and visible wihtin in my mind. It would be great to see this lengthened, with more details. Good Job!
I may be over-analyzing but your story says exactly what I tried to get across in my own entry. The Holy Spirit is gently nudging all of us writers to get our stories into the public because "she", any reader, is patiently waiting for "me", any writer to get GOD's message into her hands. At least that is what I see. You have a delightful story anyway.
Congratulations in placing in the top 40 over-all and in the top 15 of your level. Good job!
