Thank you for saving my bacon this morning. As an assignment, I have to do two reviews of newby short stories and I was thinking I'd never find anything until I ran across your delightful Buzz. It seems almost all the newbies are writing teenage angst or poetry at the moment. Anyway, here we go. Remember, it's just my opinion and I'm not yet completely infallible.
Initial Impression: Your title to the story is excellent, with just the right amount of intrigue over what you mean and thoughts of bumble bees. Very clever. The "sex toys" in the description might put a few oldies like myself off but hey, I got past it. And then the story itself was a pure delight. After wading through acres of despair and gloom, how wonderful it is to find something genuinely funny and well written.
Content: You're on a winner here. Not everyone can write entertainingly of toilet brushes, plungers and vibrators. An original idea is more than half the battle in writing and this story has it!
Style: I love your conversational and confidential style, as though you are speaking to only the reader and no one else. You have tremendous confidence and ability in writing and the lack of errors (I spotted one typo somewhere - I'll try to find it again when I get to "Suggestions") speaks of someone who knows what she's doing.
Flow/Pace: Just the right pace, neither hurried nor lagging. Everything flows along smoothly without hiccup.
Suggestions: Ah, now the typo. Couldn't find it but noticed an "its" that should be an "it's" - "Its going to be great."
Overall Impression: The bright spot in my morning. This little story revived my belief that comedy is possible in serious things like writing communities. You handle it like a professional, leaving the reader with a grin and better attitude to life. Thanks for a really great read.
