The middle section, full of

Posted on Tue, 02 Jan 2018

The middle section, full of dreams and imagination, really fleshes this out, giving hope for the narrator and also making us feel his childhood humiliations even more keenly.  The ending is really uplifting - the reader wants to shout 'YES!' that...

I didn't see that last line

Posted on Sat, 23 Dec 2017

I didn't see that last line coming.  The scene is very well built up, inviting the reader to invest in these characters, and feel a genuine sadness for the woman watching and waiting.

Posted on Sat, 23 Dec 2017

Some of the imagery in this is very effective, and the poem as a whole seems to come alive, in fact, when the river arrives 'buzzing, puffing, scuffing'.  The dry humour (oh, that's a daft thing to say in this context, but I can't think of a...

Posted on Tue, 19 Dec 2017

You capture the wonderful strangeness of a peacock very well.  Their beauty has an almost alien quality to it, if you are standing looking at them, and they are standing looking back.  This brought back memories of being with my children when...

Posted on Fri, 24 Nov 2017

Posted on Wed, 22 Nov 2017

Beautifully written, and hard to read.  Many readers will share the child's experiences, but there will also be parents who are painfully aware that their cihldren must have heard things they should not.  An excellent piece, Poppy.

Great to see this developing.

Posted on Thu, 02 Nov 2017

Great to see this developing.  There is a lot of exposition in this part, and for me following drafts could do with breaking it up a bit.  But that's for later.  Keep going!

Some great ideas in here - I was going to wiffle on about a bit of proof reading, then realised you're doing it for Nanowrimo so you won't have time for any of that at the moment!  Hope it continues to go well.
