I'd like to start off by giving you immense credit for the vulnerability portrayed in your writing.
Read the story now
It was raw and genuine and in many ways, brave.
You are a really interesting voice, in that, the way that you write both exudes passion & pain.
Your vocabulary also pays favour to the reader's experience and I am, if anything, a sucker for finding the right word to emit the right emotion... you executed this fantastically.
I've only marked you less than 5 stars for 2 very minor, albeit important, reasons:
1. There is a contrast between your poetry and short stories in that both of them are great but your short stories really add an extra punch. It's almost exciting clicking next chapter, and it being a short story.
2. The typos here and there, nothing major, but somewhat noticeable.
All in all, this book is really immersive and incredibly well written.
It's evident that passion abounds on every page and when the reader picks that up, it's golden.
I really look forward to reading more, great work!!!
