Sweet story. I had a little trouble staying with it in the beginning, but it opened up more with each exchange and ended with a great punch.
Great take on the subject.
My husband reads my stuff as well. I love it when he laughs or cries. I could feel her angst as she waited.

This brought a warm smile to my face. My husband also reads my writing. It's helpful to have another's viewpoint.
What a great way to tell the surprise!!!

I liked how you demonstrated what not to do, which is very valuable info in beginner writers like myself!
I love your word pictures - especially the 'invisible elephant,' although it was hard to distinguish between your mc's thinking and the material he was meant to be checking. Was that meant to be the 'pregnant pause' before your warm fuzzy at the end?
A story married writers can identify with...waiting to hear their mate's comments...or worried about discouraging their mate when they think the writing needs more work. Sweet ending :)
Congratulations on your placement!
