About Palvi Sharma

I love writing. There isn't a back story of why I do so or what inspired me- I just fell in love with it!

I love to write in a 'twist in the tale' way. Whatever happens to my characters has to be something that even I cannot guess. Basically, it's the unpredictable that draws me into writing a story. If it's obvious and so is the climax, then I lose interest in it and that's something I would never present to my readers.

My characters are ordinary but something extraordinary happens to them. That's the way I always write!

The over usage of "had" slowed down progress, while some sentences were repetitive. The title caught my attention as there's a character in one of my stories coincidentally named Bell Tower.

Good story. Short yet not sweet!

All and all, not a bad read. A young woman has survived the burning of her village by four undisclosed horsemen. While gazing down from the bell tower, she attempts to make sense of what has just happen and why she is the only survivor. The story seemed to have no resolution, which only heightened to drive home the poignant fact that many times there are no answers after an act of such horrific terror. This fantasy/horror flash-story hides some very intense and universally true political statements veiled by an intensely emotional atmosphere.

There are a few (and only a very few) grammatical and structural errors, mostly involving the plural tense of certain nouns (horsebacks, for instance) and a couple of sentences I had to reread. But overall, nothing that I felt dramatically detracted from the pacing or the message. Well done Palvi! And may I see more of this genre from you in the future.
