You capture the odd, surreal

Posted on Thu, 27 Jul 2017

You capture the odd, surreal nature of a dream very well in the first part of this story.  I like the flashes of humour as well.  Personally I'm not a fan of 'it was all a dream' endings - although, again, there are some nice touches of humour...

Hi, good to see you back on the site!  I have lots of sympathy with this.  I have not yet reached the level of resisting all upgrades, but I do tend only to replace if it breaks.  Perhaps indeed it is an age and experience thing - the only thing...

Hello!  Welcome to ABC Tales - lovely to have you here.

I like reworkings of fairy tales.  They always lend themselves to reinterpretation and I enjoyed your poem.  I'm no poetry critic either, so I can only offer a personal point of view...

What a lovely story!  Glad that it all worked out in the end.  I love the idea of having that chant as a ring tone.  Currently I have The Beatles' 'Don't Bother Me', which has always seemed appropriate, but you've given me something to think...

Hello, welcome to ABC Tales.  I enjoyed reading this.  The way you follow the year through is very effective, and I very much liked the last three lines.  I agree with Ewan that the word Ivy sits a little oddly at the end.  Although I'd have got...

I loved that last line. 

Posted on Fri, 30 Jun 2017

I loved that last line.  Sometimes there is simply no other way to put it!
