  • This was a uniquely scary and futuristic take on the prompt and you left me worried about robots that come designed for ‘everything’. I liked the way you started showing the ‘human’ characteristics of the robot and it felt good at first, but as you kept the tension growing through the story, the creepiness started getting to me. You used just the…[Read more]

  • Thank you. I’m even more humbled by this!

  • Thank you so much, Susan. This was a last minute idea and I wrote it in the middle of a hectic exam -supervising stint at my college, so I’m thrilled with all the adjectives you’ve gifted me!

  • Hi Mica,
    I liked the direction of your story and the way you showed us Jas’ vulnerability as well as her struggle to cope. Being a counselor myself and from discussions with my sister who is a psychiatrist, I could relate well to the situations/personality that you describe. I also believe that for all of us, the ability to hold on to a Higher…[Read more]

  • Thank you, Paul, for the kind appreciation!

  • Hi Paul, this was a sweet tale with quite a deep meaning that left me pondering over how sometimes in life, we are sad to see someone/something go away, but that event paves the way for our own growth. I enjoyed the way you got the plants to share their botanical details! This can be made into an illustrated story for children, I think.

  • Hahaha! I loved this twist on the old Cinderella tale, Susan! A totally enjoyable tale with everyone showing lots of grey instead of the black-and-white of the fairy tales. Going by the tips Javotta hands out to the Prince, I half expected her to set herself up as his Life Coach! Great job!

  • Thank you, Srivalli, for your kind words. Yes, a book-reading break from SM can be quite refreshing! I’m happy that we agree about the annoying new FB interface…now, I’m even less inclined to use that platform.

  • Nice take on the prompt, Srivalli! Using the cat as a narrator was a great touch because it allowed you to show us all the action taking place in the alley. You had me totally engrossed and feeling empathy for the cat.

    I have a suggestion…think it over and decide if you want to act on it or not. After all the fast paced action, the story…[Read more]

  • This is a beautiful story, told with so much love and I was happy to see that it ended on a positive note. This story has many characters, and it was a little confusing for me at times but maybe if you write this again without the limit of a word count, you could stretch the scenes out to make things clearer. I liked how you showed the gradual…[Read more]

    I liked the way your story flowed along, Sue, pulling me along with the MC. The shopkeeper was the smartest, I guess! You made great use of the senses of smell and touch, and it added to the beauty of your storytelling. Thank you!

  • What a tragedy! When you gave us a peek into Lidia’s mind planning to ‘hurt’ Harry, I never imagined it would be this. I liked the way you captured the heartbreak turning into jealousy and the novelty of a new life wearing off. The friendly neighbour was a great touch to show the last few scenes and I loved the imagery of the last sentence.

    This is such a vivid capture of the stages we go through when we first connect with people we knew in school! Great work with your sound and thought descriptions, Jaya. In fact, at the beginning, I wondered if you were continuing one of the previous stories you wrote about the electric appliances having a conversation, which was really a great…[Read more]

  • Thank you so much, Sue, for your kind words! I’m happy to hear that you found it full of humor!

  • Thank you!

  • Thank you so much for the appreciation. Yes, “back to the library” did feel a bit sudden and extreme to me too, but I just left it in as yet another event that can be attributed to the godman’s magic 🙂

  • Oh, Yona, it’s my turn to blush now at your words. I’m humbled to know that I’ve been a silent mentor to your writing! Thank you for making my day!!

  • Yes, your explanation does make sense now that I see it from that perspective. And I’m humbled to think that my feedback helps you. Thank you for sharing that! 🙂

  • Thank you so much, Jaya, for reading and sharing your thoughts. Yes, the godman was the smartest of them all 😁
