Masterful writing. You totally put me inside the MC's heart, and made me feel his hurt and his anger, and every other emotion his confused heart was feeling.
Palpable grief and pain captured throughout this entire piece.

God bless~
Brilliant! I was riveted from the first line to the last with your detailed descriptions. It's the first one I've read but it has to be the winner.
A lump in my throat. I think many of us identify with those "one of these days" lists. Nicely done.
Oh my gosh!!!!! This is a tear jerker! beautiful, and my favorite this week!!!! great work!!!
Great Job! The choppy sentence structure really helped to develop the feel of the piece :) I love how the MC was willing to keep living for the sake of the one who wasn't.
The MC's voice was so very authentic. One of those times when you forget you are reading and get swept up in the story. Excellent job!
Your writing arrows straight to the heart. You brought this old gal to tears. When I grow up, I want to write like you . . .

God Bless~
Absolutely brilliant writing. You've packed so much into this story and kept us with you all the way.
Congratulations on a well-deserved win!
Congrats of your EC placement. Absolutely amazing.
This was amazing! As always in your writing, we are right there, almost physically, and this time also inside the heart and mind of a soul in grief. I think I will feel sad all day. A very well deserved win, and I haven't even read the others yet.
Congratulations, Rachel! This is a wonderful piece of writing that kept me riveted to it all the way through. Your win is most well deserved.
A gripping and heart wrenching piece. A masterfully written story. Your dog was a nice touch. Congratulations on your 1st place win in the EC.
Excellent read.
Congratulations on your 1st place EC award, Rachel. I can't believe I didn't comment on your story; I've read through it several times.

I love how the MC and the dog, Sunday, bond. Every time I read it, I weep a little. How tragic that most of us put so much time into work, and not with friends and family.
Wow. Heart-ripping but honest story with a message of love. Wonderful.
