About David Willoughby

I am a Criminology student currently attending classes for my first degree, one of what might become many. When I am asked what I want to do with my degree I always get strange looks, I want to be a writer. However it is not that strange if you think about it. More so than any degree Criminology offers a unique benefit to writers. It is the unique and scientific dissection of bad guys and the people in the real world who work to catch them. Can you believe someone is actually going to give me a degree for studying this? How cool is that?

This was a clever piece, an over the top story centered around a mundane aspect of life. I enjoy these kinds of juxtaposition.

I admire the intent, if not the execution of this story.
It reads as if it were a fiction writing assignment from an interested, but not particularly talented, high school student. It's not terrible...but neither is it particularly good. There's no strong hook for the reader, almost no character development, and only the barest gloss of atmosphere.
Without knowing anything about the writer, I'd say that his writing might go somewhere in time, but it will take a lot of practice.
Read it because it's free, but don't expect too much.

I enjoyed this story. The use of language was execellent and kept me interested to the end.
