Title: Chapter 1: A Portion of God Reviewer: justhere Signed

A big, fat "Aw!" so sweet, so wonderfully written, so enjoyable to read. I have an eternal TWO hours before class, so I'm going to get my fill. 



Author's Response:

Parts of this were taken from a RL conversation with my son, like the idea of exchanging god by hugging. Six-year-olds can be very wise, indeed. I hope that one day my son's English will be good enough to read and understand this story -- and I hope it'll make him proud to know he inspired it.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review!

The OC added to the beauty of this piece. I think you need to cancel the doubts, because there is nothing to fear from posting this wonder.

Title: Chapter 1: A Man of Sixteen Reviewer: justhere Signed

love it! very powerful, short and "sweet", as they say...something I have yet to master. 



Author's Response:

Thank you! It was my first attempt at writing grown up Joe -- child-Joe came much easier to me at that time. I'm trying to improve my Joe-skills, though, and hope I've done him justice lately.

Title: Chapter 2: The Day Has Come Reviewer: justhere Signed

wow, once again. Potent and gaining power from it's very brievity. 



Author's Response:

Thanks again!

I love to try and write those concise pieces. It's interesting to see how much you can strip off a story without hindering the reader's ability to imagine the scene. But I'm trying my hand at some more epic tales lately, too.

Glad you liked these two vignettes!

Loved it, you have quite a talent for suspense. I like the way you write, though something about the format of the actual paragraphs seems off. But amazing and very potent.

Nicely done! The very start is my favorite part of the story. You keep a nice pov going, and the description is always spot-on. As you got a little farther in, it seemed that it was hard for you to transmit exactly what you were feeling. but overall, amazing.

Summary:

Another good reason to fall in love with Hoss? His good marriage qualities? A dialogue of two minds a bit unorthodox, in the hazy night of advancing years and their effects.

Title: Chapter 1: The Art of Mopping, Making Tea and Keeping Your Sanity Reviewer: justhere Signed

"...which was endearing at first but rather nerve-grating after the four hundred and seventeenth time..." Before I go ANY further, I have to tell you that this line cracked me up. My extremely poor memory will make me forget it if I wait...back to the story! :) Lol, thanks for the laugh!



Author's Response:

Title: Chapter 1: The Art of Mopping, Making Tea and Keeping Your Sanity Reviewer: justhere Signed

“No, the dog.” Now she sounded much more like herself. “Of course, the baby wants out. Honestly!” oops, another one! :) LOL! Hilarious little bits that jump out at me...love 'em!

And now, I must run to class, but I will be back to finish, never fear. Juliet is an old favorite of mine. :)



Author's Response:

Yeah, well, Mylady stays true to herself, I'm afraid. She doesn't tolerate dumbness -- especially not from Adam, as it seems.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, justhere! I hope you finished the story eventually. Perhaps as a relief from class?

Oh, lordy, I loved it, faust. Beautiful and humorous--can there be anything better? Such a sweet picture, too! Helped me to visualise the new family. :) Lovely story, and I am a fast and "old" favorite of your work, though I doubt you recall me! :)

Wonderfully done, thank you so much for making me laugh and feel that warm "aw..." feeling.

Love,

C.



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for that bundle of lovely reviews! It's so good to hear someone had a good time with this story. I surely had a good time writing it.... LOL
