Review of Stop That Knight!  
Review by Lassie
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
I loved this from the start. As soon as I read your characters had been stolen by a knight I laughed. Such an interesting way to put losing your muse. Loved it.

Nicely written. I don't believe you have put God second or stopped putting him first. I have a strong faith and belief in God. Just because I don't think about him every second of the day doesn't mean he is put second or I have stopped putting him first in my life. He is first in my life in that I choose him over life itself. My faith in God is knowing no matter what I am facing, God is there to take me through it and he will without a doubt.

I love angels and stories about angels. This one is different. It makes you feel the fear she must feel at being unable to fly. Being grounded, even for a short time for an angel must be frightening. Then the pain she felt when trying to use her wing is clear to the reader. Very nice job with the angel character.

This is such a nice little story about a grandfather and his grandson. Reminded me of days with my own grandparents. I liked the way you described Jason's energy. When he was scaling a display I had to chuckle because I could see this young lad with so much energy that he didn't know what to do with it.

This is so true. I like the way you describe writer's block. Mine makes me feel exhausted and confused about what I want or need to do. A lot of my inspiration comes in the mornings when I first wake up. If I start to think about what I need to do for the day I push it out of my head and think about emotions, feelings, dreams or what I am currently trying to write. It gives me ideas on my characters and their life and personality. I know! It's a strange way of doing it but it works for me.

Review of Feathers  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
I love birds. I only have one left out of many, a yellow nape Amazon. I love the way you describe his anticipation and hope over the yearly flight south for the winter. You did a beautiful job with the point of view. I did wonder through the entire story though, what kind of bird is he? The feast you mentioned frogs and mice so I assumed he is a meat eater.

Review of Candles  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
I will never see the candle, especially a lit candle, the same again. I have always loved candles and knew they had a special significance to Christ. I was raised Southern Baptist and we didn't have the the candles. After reading this the beauty if it is profound and I want to thank you for sharing this.

Nice little flash fiction. It starts right off with the officer wanting to catch his man. The ending is well done. It solves his chase for the perp and he is able to attend a nice gala at the perp's expense. I also like the last bit about the mayor being blackmailed and how he states protecting the so called innocent.

Review of Winter Fun  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
The title is very fitting. You have really nice description and it flows well. I was waiting for some kind of plot but I take it this is written as simply a description or as a happy episode or memory. That is the type of things I write in my journals, fond memories I don't want to forget.

I really enjoyed this little story. I imagine it's something you have probably dreamed at sometime. It decribes writer's block so perfectly. I had to chuckle at the white pencil erasers for it's teeth, that was great. Thank you for putting a smile on my face this morning.

Nice informational article. You relate what you learned from "Mysteries At The Museum" to your current and future marketing strategies. The subject of elevators hit a memory chord. LOL. I had a dream night before last about being stuck in an elevator. Nicely written. Nice structure. I'd say post it for sure.

Review of Into the Light  
Review by Lassie
Rated: ASR | (5.0)
I like it a lot. It's different. I was interested to find out what 'today' was. I kept wondering where their parents were at. The description is wonderful. It's believable that the ozone layer could deteriorate enough to cause burns but then I thought, maybe they are on a different planet when it says the yellow rays might return years from now.

Wow, fantastic! I wish more people would post these to help those of us who need help, advice, and guidence in reviewing and writing. Too bad the best I can rate is a five. This is one time I would give six or seven stars. Thanks for posting. This gives me a "format" to follow.

The ending is priceless. Very funny. It reminded me of how I was the same way when I was younger. I went to church one Sunday and when I got home I realized I had my shoes on the wrong feet. I got over my shyness eventually. What helped me was one day I realized all of God's creations are perfect. I am a creation of God's so therefore God created me perfect in my own way.

Nice little story. Sounds like you grey up with all brothers. What you needed was a fiesty sister to keep all of you in line. Ha! Ha! The story flowed really well. I have to admit I felt your mother's stress when you mentioned you were crawling between the matresses and jumping on each other. The ending was great. I loved how you mentioned you don't have to worry about being jumped on. Stay Safe.

Review of Dogs  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
Nice, it sums up a dog's unconditional love very well. It flows really well. I did get tangled up at the sentence, "...taking her out is a present I decided to give her." Maybe it was just the way I initially read it but the "i decided to give her" feels tacked on as an after thought or something. I am wondering what kind of dog Annie is. I get a sense she is a golden retriever somehow. I could't .live without my rough collie, or my parrot. My collie though keeps me out of the depths of depression better than the antidepressants do. I really enjoyed this

Flows nicely. The examples you show are good. There is a sense of impending danger throughout. None of the incedents you cited involve you personally. So, I am wondering what is causing so much inner fear. Only one example mentions the loss of feeling safe, the rest relates the loss of material things. Isn't what really matters in life just that? Life! One of my favorite books is "Man's Search For Meaning." (Vicktor Frankle). Small but powerful in true meaning.

Review of Sound Like You  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
I like this. It is actually something I have thought about many times. When writing dialogue I use contractions all the time. I will say it to myself and listen to the way I say it and that is the way I write it. Most of my problems are with verb tense and certain punctuation. This is short but says it very well.

Review of Trapped  
Review by Lassie
Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Great poem. I can relate to what it says, especially this time of year. Mid-February I always feel like what your poem describes perfectly. It is always a struggle for me. I don't know if it is a lack of sunlight, the cold, or just the position of the stinking planets but I really get low.

Review of Marketing Basics  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
Nice article on marketing. I guess if you are pushing to make money it is a necessity. Personally, I write to put my ideas on paper, because I enjoy creating something out of a single idea. I have published one book and am now working on my fourth book. I don't know if Iwill ever try publishing any of my others.

Review of Pyramid Scheme  
Review by Lassie
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
Hilarious, I loved it! I sort of figured the places you mentioned were either circuses, brothels, or something theanimals didn't know what they were. I didn't know Zumanity though was adult theme until the end note. What is a Cirque du Soleil? I am not knowledgable on or about Vegas.

Review of Timid souls

Interesting story. I like the idea of climate change dividing the human race into two groups. I also liked the way your main character, li, convinced herself the games are only fiction rather than believe it was for real. It is interesting how her auntis so fastidious yet lives with bugs and dust.

Review of OVERCOMING  
Review by Lassie
Rated: E | (5.0)
Wonderful little piece. I have met people in my life that do not believe in God or Jesus. I would be so lost without Jesus. He has been there for me every single time I have needed comfort, support, safety, or help of any kind. He has protected me from harm and I have always had what I needed. I don't have earthly riches or possessions but I have everything I need.

I loved this. A nice twist to the old genie in a bottle story. I really liked the humor in it. It was extremely well written making it easy to follow the flow of the story. This would make a good series if following the genie and the people who found him.
