  • Dead? Three Short Stories by Joshua Scribner on April 26, 2011

    The first story left me puzzled at what was happening. The juxtaposition didn't seem to be in order which made the flow of the story blotchy. I believe if the story is read out loud and reworked it would be a well written and enjoyable short story.

    Candle in her hands could have and should have been a great story. I believe it has the potential. The start was good. However the grammar and the fact that there were no paragraphs was a problem. Another eg. The girls feet don't gloat across the ground they float. The best thing to do is always read your work out loud to hear how it reads at least twice. Then upload another version. More of a goal is needed to be written for a more fulfilling end. Good luck.
