I love the way each of us writers can read the same instructions and we all come up with different ways to look at life. This assignment was for us to write what the cup of life tastes like. I really like the very vivid descriptions you give, like "tasting each bitter letter as I type" with the African music throbbing in the background. Good Stuff.
But I did have a bit of trouble understanding how we got from there to the "horrific theme of genocide in which I drowned for two hours". Was this part of the same movie? It almost sounds like you are talking about a second movie. I just had trouble keeping the same tempo for the last half of the descriptions.
Otherwise, l really liked it. Maybe I am just tired tonite. Thank you for sharing.
My review has been submitted for consideration in "Good Deeds Get CASH!" .
