    I read it and enjoyed it. The language was a little elaborate for my taste, but it suited the story. I do think I missed something though as I didn't get the point of it.

    Probably just me being dim :-)
    Thanks. I toned it down a fair bit, and tried to keep it relatively simple. Interesting that you didn't get the point - I must be clearer! I am trying something quite hard and I'm not sure I have the skill for it.

    Well, if anyone cared to read the lit mag that I was working on over the spring, it finally launched (online at least - print copy is due in the fall) here - - pdf, epub and mobi files available. I've got two stories in there.

    Anyone read about that girl, Lucy Saxon that threw together a novel in three weeks and got such a good reception on NNWM that she landed a three book publishing deal. Bloody impressive, slightly less so when you read that her dad, CEO of a football club knew some agents. But still bloody impressive.

    I'm liking the form. I always find present tense a little strange, especially when you're reliving the past, but you pull it off well.

    It has an odd mixture of impersonal and personal that makes it stand out - nice work!


    Interesting start. The mystery of who the man is builds suspense nicely. Good story and I appreciated the conclusion.

    You know how I sorta finally finished something recently? I've "unfinished" it by going back to it to continue the story since remembering I left it full of dangling threads. I am full of fail.

    Meme's on the reading list, looks good at cursory glance. Plan on getting much more reading&writing done on the summer hols.
