Your piece was really well written, enough to make me commit the sin of reading for pleasure, not to review. :) That's one of the best compliments I can give. It's engaging, intriguing, keeps you wondering throughout the story, and the last line is deliciously satisfying.

Your characters journey through philosophy was pretty much just right. Not overdone, but not so much detail all you get's a yawn.

Again, really nice work. The writing is clean and descriptive without ever getting in the way of itself. Good work.

The first scene between Arnold and Tessie doesn't feel very natural. While it's... read

    It's been a while, bear with me. First, I'm going to go into the substance of the story. The second part will be about writing and construction. 'The Lucky Necklace' as an idea is...pretty good. For young adult fiction it basically works, but lacks the punch and detail to really drive the lesson home. The first part of the story shows Rebecca's life as one being constantly... read
