This story is a contemporary, erotic variation on the Pygmalion story, the artist (in this case writer) who falls in love with his creation. It is nicely told and strangely touching as we see Rose become an increasingly captivating part of her creator's life. He pens story after story just to spend more time with her. As a writer myself, I can relate to his situation, falling under the spell of one's own creation. There is a haunting quality to this story which I found both charming and a strange mixture of sweet and sad.

What I liked most about this story was the idea of an author falling in love with his character so he'd write scenes to be with her. It was original and fresh, and I enjoyed reading it.

God, do I know that feeling; at least some of it. I've had times writing when I couldn't sleep. The scenes kept building in my mind keeping me awake. I probably should have gotten up and typed, even though it was two in the morning. Thank you for a story that shows me I'm not alone.

Mr. Wolf, your thirty-word precis of this short piece literally compelled me to read it. I'm glad it did.

Your writing is competent and straightforward: the best possible style for this sort of magical-realism / erotic-romance tale. We differ a bit on matters of punctuation, but apart from that and a handful of somewhat awkward constructions, I find little to criticize.

Jacob's characterization, though abbreviated, worked well. As I, too, suffer from his "affliction" -- I'm forever falling in love with my female protagonists -- I resonated to it from the very first.

The plot, though simple, is satisfying. There weren't a lot of other ways to end the story, but all the same, I couldn't prefigure the outcome.

From one writer of oddball erotica to another: I salute you!

A good read. The main character really was able to present his feelings (you might even call it obsession)in the story. It was a good plot however I was looking for something more in the story. I just cannot describe what it is.
