I like it but I think it’s a lot more clear in my mind then in the reader’s.

You're welcome! I could be wrong, but I think they want us to post them only in the forum that isn't open to the public. Good luck !

I fluctuate between "meh" and "that's actually not bad!" I don't hate it, but I suspect I will like it better upon revision.

Ugh. Not good. I set mine in a cafe, and just now realized it's supposed to be a sidewalk cafe. But, it was set in the winter, and she was looking out a window, so... <sigh>  oh well. There's always the next round.

Was disappointed when I first submitted.  But I've read and re-read it obsessively since then.  Now, I love it!

I got to start leaving things to the last minute because I feel like I'm going to get knocked on simple edits again. 

As far as the story goes I think I did well with bringing the prompts to life in a horror fashion. But my initial draft was over 2500 words. So a lot of the nuances I had in the story got left on the cutting room floor.

We'll see.

I just found two errors i thought I fixed. I edited so much to get to the word count and it was so late. I am so disappointed with myself. Cry
