V4 explores the low level anxiety that an adolescent male feels. The conflict was started by an act of violence/rough play on the soccer pitch. Was it intentional, or part of the game? An athletic board will decide.
Good writing: "stud with studs...one eyeed trouser snake...football has kept me going...talking about someone else's problems."
I have reviewed V4's three other stories that relate to the world of soccer. I think she has the material to produce a 100 page novelette that soccer fans and parents can identify with. She has the characters and basic story sturcture, but she needs to develop and refine it.
material: Scott's parents arguing that leads to divorce; Ama, girl friend who doesn't make it with the lead character, but plays a role. The teachers and coaches in the school. All characters we know from our own lives. Professor Moriarty, writing from the Magic Kingdom, Disney World, Orlando.

A review of GTFOby James Moriarty on 07/16/2014Keller has written a smooth, clearly edited story about the experiences of Chloe, a 17 year girl heading to an Ivy League college. But she might not make it because of skullduggery by her high school chemistry teacher and a greedy engineering executive. A "panacea polymer" is created in a garage lab. It is stolen...and so the plot begins. But what is funny occurs when "the... read
A review of The Song Of Davie (Part I)by James Moriarty on 07/09/2014This lengthy 39 page adolescent courtship story is written by a fine writer who captures the country lingo of farm country. Let the words speak for themselves: "grass green...coals of love...from the future...weren't wivin'...promises unkept...ground into soap...then let the heart speak...who wants nothin'...to do with you...shoulda thought this one through better." Don't... read
