Coming back after a bit of a break. Needed to shake off a few things. Done with the unemployment, took a low-paying job so that I will be able to chase after this elusive writing dream. I still consider myself a struggling writer. Learned a great deal from my last visit to the site, hoping others have learned one or two things too. Really just here to learn from other writers (newbies, pros and the like) who I have great respect for.

    From the brief synopsis, I expected a big payoff in this story, but sadly it didnt happen. I am not sure if this was meant to be a coming out sort of tale or the story of what became the relationship between two young men. It is a bit confusing. They go to a party, one leaves the other to get stoned then upon returning they lie in the grass and share a kiss. All well and... read

    With a title such as "The Epiphany" I was looking forward to the moment that I would read and find where the character had their 'AHA' moment, but it never seem to come. Was it the moment when they heard God chuckling in the dark? Even though the main character is lying their broken on the ground (somehow) he is very hard to feel any sort of sorrow for. He doesnt really... read

    There probably will not be a review of this story that does not compare it to "The Catcher in the Rye." It seems too easy to do, but since the author makes reference to Mr. Salinger in the work, it would seem that the comparisons are inevitable. And really the only comparison is that we have to angry young men who view the rest of the world as beneath them. The young man... read

    Ah, I see. I thought it was a script. That's quite a story (56 pages). Keep going and you could have yourself a novella. Yeah, there have been plenty of short stories turned into feature films and short films. You just have to get it out there and hope it strikes a cord in someone.

    Right now I'm reading a book about Hunter S. Thompson, but I got The Story of Edgar Sawatelle for my birthday and I'm going to read that next. Good to know your writing away. Keep it up! When do you think the script will be finished?

    No worries. :) I know how it is - on both aspects. I'm glad to hear that you feel less stressed and are back at the writing. And that's the beauty of Trigger, I guess. Having like minded bods to bounce those ideas off of.

    Best of luck with the new short. Take care and have fun :)

    Hope 2009 is a good'n for you.

    :D
