Cute story! I laughed out loud at the line about skunk flatulence! Surely this entry is a winner!
I like exploring graveyards - even of people I don't know at all. Although having a hidden graveyard in a cornfield sounds interesting, I doubt a farmer would plant there, because the stones would get in the way of the machinery. Perhaps a wild, grassy field would have been better. It makes me want to go find my in-laws' gravestones.
This was really fun to read! I love your sense of humor and adventure. :)
Great job!
I enjoyed your adventure through your gift of storytelling with humor!
What an adventure! The characters were well developed. I enjoyed the contrast between the MC's desire and her sister's reluctance.
I absolutely love to walk through old cemeteries so you had me hooked on your entry right from the first. I'd like to walk with you sometime through the very old cemetery for ships' captains near here and read the inscriptions. You would love how the widows blamed their husbands for drowning in the violent Atlantic storms. Loved your story of the cornfield!
Love your humor. The dialogue flowed naturally with the characters' personalities. Great writing. Congratulations!
