Okay let's be honest I started the story and caught all the mirror stuff and my stomach started to sink. We've seen stories like this before - right? Wrong - this was a beautifully executed short story. The subject matter was perfect for the medium and I know I go on about stories getting made into movies but this would make a great short. I couldn't see where the story was going which is always a good thing. It grew in intensity and then became dark which came as a surprise. I'm glad that Ryan turned up at the end - it is a fairy story after all.
If I had one down point - it would be to loosen up the prose - this is a young girl with a zest for life and yet some of the language feels as if it's written by an old aunt. It is all there but just a pinch more zest (if this makes any sense) and it would be perfect.
Lovely stuff and yes I guess it is better to reflect than regret.

A review of Are we you?by **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 10/11/2014This review is going to be all about dialogue. I've got to say, I never realized how negatively a screenplay can be impacted when just one component isn't in the box. Because "Are We You?" really ought to have everything in the world going for it. It's a dynamic premise, the characters are put through the ringer, and you're dealing with really interesting subject matter (9/11... read
A review of The Appointmentby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 10/11/2014The Appointment has a strange but interesting premise. Death (personified as a ghastly old hag) arranges the moment of death with people, and then they forget. One man seems immune, so Death launches a campaign of psychological torment upon him. The story is primarily meant as a psychological horror/thriller about said man trying to protect his son, but there's some nice themes... read
