    An excellent example of a short story written in 2nd person. The tension building up was marvelous and the character came over as authentic. Loved the ending too.

  • The Kindness of Strangers on May 29, 2014

    Hello Alison. I loved your story and the moral dilemma that it raises. The piece is well written and the back story is slipped in nicely. Pam's character and dialogues are excellently executed and believable. Great ending too. Well done.
  • Beyond the Crossing on May 29, 2014

    Hi Lorraine, I enjoyed the story about a woman who is so enthusiastic about the outback that, perhaps, her one chance at a new relationship is lost because of it. Or, maybe not- the last line changed everything (great twist) and I like that the ending is open. You have done well and made me smile. Now I have to wonder if she will take a new journey, find another person to date in Perth or spend the next couple of years chatting to Mike online! Smart.
