I know you can't see it but I'm cuddling my laptop's screen. Or rather I was since I can't cuddle the screen and type out my comment at the same time.

Explanation so you're not backing away from the laptop-screen-cuddling crazy person xD I made the mistake of expecting a certain level of writing in my college fiction writing class, forgetting that most of the people haven't written fiction before. And I have to politely critique the stories despite wanting to curl up in a corner and cry or brain my classmates with basic grammar/spelling textbooks >.> Bad me I know. They can't improve without more experienced writers pointing out what could be done better but ARGH. So right now, seeing anything well written on my screen makes me happy and restores my faith in writing-humanity if that makes sense.

*cough* Right. So, reading your stories at any point in makes me want to heap tons of probably repetitive and unoriginal praise upon you but I'll skip that. I always enjoy getting the tidbits from the various stories you're working on since it keep me as a reader engaged and wondering what happens before/after/behind the scenes. I'm excited to see more of the Lone Islands arc once you conquer the dialogue and plot issues. I find strikethrough and whiting out text are wonderful tools that let me play with different outcomes of current plot strands without losing previous bits of writing in case the new bits don’t work and I end up going with my original ideas.
