• Hello Henri,

    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my story. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I was wondering a bit about the end, so thank you for this point.
    I am very glad you liked my story. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for reading and commenting on my story. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yes, it should be farmers.
    I am glad you liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Thank you so much, Zรฉfira. I usually don’t see it like that, so hearing (well, reading) it, means a lot. ๐Ÿ™‚
    It was a good book, because Madeline Miller teaches Homer and literature from that time period, so she knows many details and hypothesis about those texts. Also, it’s from the viewpoint of Patroclus, which was always a very interesting…[Read more]

    I imagined a village from the 19th century. Back then the Ottoman Empire was on its way to collapse but the traditions stayed around until the 1920-1930, and even later.

    • Hi Bogdana. This is an interesting insight to a culture I don’t know anything about. Once again you have created some colourful images and I love this expression: ‘And you have the nerve to show your face still! You wantonness!’ ‘You wantonness’ is not something I’ve ever heard anyone say to another, but it works in your story. Although I tried to overlook the grammar errors this time, you do need to read back over the piece and try and correct them as they are glaring and do tend to detract from the allure of the story. Thanks for sharing another colourful piece.

        Thank you for pointing it out. I barley made it on time to upload, so I guessed that not sleeping didn’t do for a good edit of the story.

    • Hello Bogdana!
      I feel so sorry for Sophia; all she did wrong was be kind and happy. I liked how you showed all the envy hidden behind โ€˜not following social rulesโ€™ excuses.
      I believe you meant โ€œfarmersโ€ when you wrote โ€œframersโ€, right? Please check.
      I loved the sentence: โ€œa worm of doubt was gnarling at Sophiaโ€™s soulโ€! Itโ€™s a brilliant analogy.
      Great job. Thanks for sharing.

    • I loved this story. Rich in culture, character and emotion. The ending should change in my opinion. It shouldn’t end with Bozhana. Sophia is our protagonist, so it should end with her. You have very colourful story here.

    Thank you for the pointers. They make a lot of sense, and it’s about time I leave more time for editing before posting.
    I am very glad you liked my story and really happy my writing is improving. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hello Isabella,
    You gave quite a fresh read to the prompt.
    Also, beautiful use of language.
    The reader could feel the re siin rising, while enjoying the scene with all senses and the final twist was quite satisfying, yet unexpected. You really built the picture.
    Thank you for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hello Maria,
    Tank you for reading and commenting on my story.
    I very happy you enjoyed it.
    Maybe it would be suited better for a bigger wor count or some prequel story, but I still have to figure that out.

  • Hello Maria,
    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my story.
    I’m very happy that you enjoyed the story, and even more, that you got the ending. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hello Timaeus,
    Thank you for reading and commenting on my story.
    I tend not to write the best stories for the given word count.
    I am very happy you like my story, thank you for the kind words. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hello Maria,

  • Hello Kim,
    Thank you for reading and commenting on my story.
    Also, Thank you for suggesting a way for me to deal with my grammar problems. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Well this came as a lighter continuation (maybe) of a more darker story I came up a while ago, and my inner voice told me I wanted this one to be a happy one.
    The V-1996 should be the year he was made…[Read more]

  • Hello June,
    Thank you for reading and commenting on my story.
    And I’m very happy you say that because usually I don’t think my ideas are that interesting.
    Yes, I have more work with grammar and should definitely leave more time for proofreading.
    Well, this piece comes from another one that is more dark in tone and I’m thinking of trying to…[Read more]

  • Hello Isabella,
    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my story.
    I am very glad you enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    It comes from a darker and much more gloomy story, which I still plan on writing, as it didn’t come out the way I wanted it the first time around.
    Still working on grammar, and I have a lot of work in that department still.

  • Hello Zรฉfira,
    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my story.
    I am very glad you enjoyed it. Also, very glad you have such a high opinion of me, as a story teller, as I love writing and storytelling. ๐Ÿ™‚
    This one comes from a very dark and gloomy story I have yet to write. I gave it a try a couple of years ago but I didn’t work…[Read more]

  • Hello Ruth!
    Great twist at the end and the use of e-mail to covey everything is one of the most interesting uses of the means I have read, even better than some novels, based on the same premise.
    The atmosphere is great and your reader is put right into the action.
    Sometime the voices get mixed up, but maybe is because of my fast…[Read more]

  • Hello Ruth!
