  • A review of Tales of Cilla

    If these writings were actually found in the way you describe, I think you are fortunate. My first thought was to use the writings to set the stage for a fiction piece about a young girl finding her way into adulthood thru trial and error in numerous sexual exploitations. I believe this could go in many different ways whether it be comedy or dramatic. The beauty is that the... read

    Hello Jenny. I'll be real candid with you regarding this story. It was boring. Now I understand there is more to it but had to be separated due to length. That doesn't make it more interesting, but rather less. Step back for a moment and take a closer look at this story. Would you read about a kid that stepped on another kid while playing football? Perhaps the other pieces... read

    Hello Jay. The story reminded me of Urban Cowboy with Dustin Hoffman playing the part of Rizzo. Maybe you are familiar with that movie or you are to young. The story line was ok but it seems to need more character development or something. In the beginning, Roger identified himself as being a tough guy, not caring about people's crap. Then he meets this stranger with a speech... read

    Btw, sorry if my last comment sounded ranty or overemotional. It wasn't meant to be. I just invested a lot of time and emotion in that story (it's the only one I've spent a significant amount of time rewriting) and I didn't get people not liking it. No story is for everyone :D Maybe the fact that there's too much of me in it is the problem, and it's unlikely to interest anyone who doesn't live in my head? We'll see what everyone else thinks. Best wishes.

    Hi Ken, thanks for your review. I'm sorry, but I just can't agree with it. If you found it boring, fine, and thank you for being honest, but I really think most people wouldn't. When I was writing this, it consumed all my thoughts - developing Mark's character, and the things that have happened in his past to make him the way he is (which will be revealed later on). I've written about the funny/annoying things that happen to him at school, hinted at his relationship with his mother and some kind of fascination with a professional player who wearss number 45 (which I'm hoping some people will understand straightaway, and others will figure it out as it goes on). I've explored his experiences of low-level, casual racism. I think there's plenty in there to interest most readers. Again, if my style is boring to you, that's fine, but I'm not going to change it. Thanks again.
