|Hello Thankful Sonali I AM WRITING!
I am reviewing your story as a judge for "Short Shots: Official WDC Contest" . Thanks for entering!
An amusing story! And now I crave a doughnut! Your king and queen characters were quite charming. And your little rhymes here and there were fun, this would be fun to read to a child.
Some suggestions for edit :
with a quick *Smirk2* at his own wit ('Bone' and 'oven' sort of rhyme. Sort of.) ~ No emoticons, please.
whichever spouse cooked, the other spouse (neither of the spice, actually) never complained. ~ I couldn't figure out what the spice comment meant.
(A giver-up, if you're worried about grammar at a time like this.) ~ It seems every aside in parenthesis is distracting and kind of irrelevant. Don't be tempted.
Overall, a cute story for the image prompt, it had me smiling.
