  • A review of I Chanced Upon a Faun

    Wow, what an excellent story! You wove a really magical tale; you have a real talent here. The vocabulary you used painted a lovely vision, I wanted to enter your story and experience it first hand. Apart from a couple of spelling mistakes, the only thing I can recommend is that you make it longer. Give the reader more of this fabulous tale, perhaps more about their life together... read

    At first I thought it was going to be a boring story about banking and finances but it turned out to be an interesting and funny way of looking at these topics. There were a few commas missing but I think it was quite grammatically sound. Who is Gordon? Why does he keep ringing Simon? I don’t think it really needs to be in the story as Gordon doesn’t appear anywhere else... read

    This was kind on an exercise for me: can I write something around 2500 words? That was the actual premise (for me) - to write a short short, and of course what I came up with was an excerpt from what could be a longer story. More like a scene, than a story. Ah well....

    All the best,

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the review of the False Profit, glad you liked it.

    Gordon is Gordon Brown, the British P.M. at the time. I can see how that maybe confusing, and also it now makes my story out of date.

    Take care and I look to reading your work.

    Jon
