TITLE
It's Been There The Whole Time
AUTHOR
Frederick Espina
DESCRIPTION
About a guy desperate to fall in love with the most beautiful girl at school. [1,100 words]
READERS' REVIEWS
"Excellent, description of what love is. I love the Imagery -- quite stunning. This story is well written and the theme tends to happen quite a bit in real life. Is this a true story? I hope so because the way you describe everything is incredible. I like the way you keep Julie in the "picture" in the story... It is a very good take on a life long topic" -- Sean Hargrea, Joliet, Illinois, USA
"It was good but too predictable, I knew from the start the ending. Plus you need to stick with one way of speaking" -- Amy Woodruff, USA
"Although its predictable, it's nice. You should be careful with your sentence structure. I would like to read more things that you post (too bad you only have the one)." -- Reuben Gregg Brewer, New York, New York, USA
"A nice story, but the writer needs to get past the cliched descriptions. The experience is one many of us has had, but the point is to make it seem unique, which this story does not do. There is potential here, with more rewriting." -- Anthony
"Well I can tell that this piece is quite descriptive, all the senses were stimulated. I like the story not because of mechanics or structure but for what it stands for. Remember that when you read this -- it's happened to me and my wife." -- Graham
"A little bit too predictable but otherwise a good story." -- Scott Secrest

""...crisp autumn air was biting at my exposed skin like a wild squirrel that just found a nut", how whimsical! I think this is one of your most effective sentences and your story of young love is an honest one... keep honing your writing technique, the world needs more sensitive and insightful writers like you." -- Joan
"Very predictable, considering I lived this event in my own life, but very well written and interesting." -- Kate, Florida, USA
"This short story was very well written.  I really enjoyed reading it!  I new what was about to happen, although you kept the suspense up.  That may be one reason why I kept reading on.  I really like to read love stories and this story reminded me of my own experience.   While reading I could imagine the date, julie, and the students walking into school.  I must say that you created good imagery!!  Nice job!!!  I hope you write another great story.  I am just curious is this story true?" -- Melissa, Normal, Illinois, USA
"I have loved the same guy for a year and half. I can't believe I still haven't told him. I guess you know how I feel. This story was very descriptive, and very well written. Don't ever stop writing!" -- Kathryn Ralistonne, Hunt Valley, Maryland, USA
"How did you not know it was Julie?  Was the punch spiked?" -- Harry

TITLE
Burnt Out
AUTHOR
P D Woo
DESCRIPTION
I know it says that this is a "vampire story" and yes, there are vampires in it, but this story was born when I hit a rut in my writing life... I really was burnt out. I hope not to spoil the ending (if it's spoil-able) but the child who appears in the end represents the little kid in me who's always wanted to write.
[3,300 words]
READERS' REVIEWS
"You wrote this when you were burnt out?  I want to read what you've written at your peak!  Very good, and I usual don't read horror stories." -- Jane

The Way It Ends
AUTHOR
Frederick Espina
DESCRIPTION
A short story about a guy who through rehab realizes what he had. I tried to write about how he felt during the time he had with her. It is a reflective piece that shows regret, feeding resentments and that its never too late. Keep hope alive and never let your heart lose. [1,500 words]
READERS' REVIEWS
"You need to spell check and watch your grammar. I’m not perfect either, but try putting the story down for a day or two and then read it again — most of your mistakes will jump right out at you. You also need to watch how you use past and present tense. I sound like a jerk, but the way you wrote took away from the story (which was cute)." -- Reuben Gregg Brewer, New York, New York, USA
