S. E. Cates,

Thank you for reading & reviewing my short story My Afternoon With Dominic. I appreciated your input during the early stages of my piece. It is now published and available for purchase. I hope you'll do me the honor of picking up a copy. Thank you. :-)

So like 2 years ago you commented on my stuff quite often, and you were one of the few people who I feel actually did genuine comments and I so very much appreciate it! I kinda went on a writing hiatus and am now just coming back from that bender, and I was going through my stuff on here to see what I could clean up and turn into something much better and your comments were just really inspiring. So thank you :)

I like that this is in poetic form, and the rhyming definitely brings out the childish tone. I do think it needs some editing though. The... Read More »
