|Nicely done. At first, I was prepared as a fellow writer to commiserate with a bad case of writer's block, and while I was sympathetic, I didn't see it as terribly original. Well written, but not anything new.
Then you came with the scene about him describing the young woman in the shop, and that was well done. I particularly like how you don't specify the details about her as he writes them down; each of us (especially men) can picture own own preferences and desires. Deftly done.
The ending was, of course, heartbreaking, though it felt a little bit rushed...did you have a word count? The change of tense stands out, highlighting that what happened was in the past and he still waits there now...at first I wasn't sure I liked the tense change, but as I let it roll around in my mouth, I think it works.
Great job. You show great ability here.
