Just beyond where I can see

By Sarah Baethge (USA)

Review of Rusted Nails:
I like these little snippets of a story and can easily see the whole vague outline of a bigger picture; but really, I would prefer to get some details.

Believable

By Sarah Baethge (USA)

Review of Shit. Fuck, Alice.:
This story is outstanding! The characters are very realistic and likable. My only problem is the title. I would understand it more if it was a direct quote from within the writing, but if it is, I don't recall coming across it. I'm just glad that I downloaded the piece anyway despite the misgivings the title inspired. I'm just afraid that people who may like it immensely will simply avoid it because of what it is called.

Fabulous story!

By Khyiah Angel (Australia)

Review of Shit. Fuck, Alice.:
Shit. Fuck. Alice by Emelina Minero is a tale of teenage angst as one girl, Alice, deals with her emerging sexuality. It is a well written engaging story that is very well constructed. Alice’s interior monologue, interspersed with the dialogue between herself and the other characters is a witty, clever and novel way of communicating the inner turmoil she experiences in relation to her feelings of attraction toward another teen. It reads as genuine and authentic to the adolescent and was both funny and touching. At times the author overfed the reader by providing too much detail to a scene which slowed down the reading a little. For example: ‘she hit the soap dispenser harder than usual and attacked the paper towel dispenser, pulling on the lever roughly, each time banging it as she brought it down.’ Paring back these kind of sentences would allow the reader smoother progress through the story. Aside from a few typos (‘to’ should be ‘too’ and ‘the’ should be ‘they’ etc) this is an exceptional story. Loved it! (Note to Author: This premise along with your writing style, would make a fabulous YA novel.)

Has potential

By Khyiah Angel (Australia)

Review of Rusted Nails:
This author is clearly a good writer, but I struggled to follow this piece. Perhaps it may be better presented in a scriptwriting format, though I'm not sure whether it would be easier to follow. The writing is engaging and I wanted to know more about the character and their stories, but just didn't get it. Another few drafts and this could be a very good read.

Loved the growth of the friendship

By Matt Ho (USA)

Review of Rusted Nails:
Great short story. I loved how in such a short story I was able to see the growth of a friendship, which started off the two girls not liking each other to ending up being such close friends in each other's lives. I enjoyed the dialogue. Would be cool to see a entire script and or continued story. Would love more from this author:) Great quick read:)

Glad I read it:)

By Renee Ho (USA)

Review of Rusted Nails:
My husband found this story and told me I have to read it because I love anything to do with friendships and I am glad I did. I really enjoyed seeing a piece which conveyed the realness about friendships and how they may not always start out in a fairy tale manner; though can grow into greatness. Loved the dialogue too, hope for more from this author:)
