Love this, Tina. Bottled

Posted on Thu, 26 Dec 2013

Love this, Tina. Bottled 'laughter' is my childhood obsession. Used to fill bottles with laughter from age 7, still have them, don't dare take the lids off. You've applied a dear metaphor to a much loved person. Except it isn't a metaphor, it's...

John, the concept is good and your ideas strong but I reckon it needs more action.Children need pulling in quick and your age target means that the children are old enough for vibrant dialogue and humour plus they are able to be introduced to...

Hello Jamescasaki, welcome to ABC Tales. Shout if you're not sure of anything, it's a helpful place. I liked the solidarity of Charley and the weight of friendship in this tale, it ends on a high note. It feels a little rushed in places and you...

Posted on Sat, 10 May 2014

I did, too. fixourmachine, love the delicacy in your details. The shyness is well expressed - the dialogue works. One thing, I felt, was that the ending seems to tail off abruptly, seems a little rushed and would be a shame after such a strong...

Posted on Tue, 28 Jan 2014

This has got clean down to my core and it hurt. Her vulnerability is so starkly conveyed. Your discomforting spill on social care standards is really sharp, then you strip right down to humanity to expose that in-built recoil in all of us, that...

Posted on Sun, 08 Dec 2013

This is packed with such depths that I've been back for several helpings. Reminded me in many ways of a pantoum. Dipping into past memories and places, all those painful emotions, in that dreamy style. It charms you along with heart jerks along...

I am another of these women

Posted on Sun, 29 Oct 2017

I am another of these women and I hear you. The repetition has a profound effect on the build of abuse and then a destabilising one in its close. Felt very emotional reading this. It feels like looking out on a clean still morning with a blue sky...
