Author's note: Want to read another? I need comments.
Attempted blackmail is not the way to get reliable comments. 1*.
I'm shocked that anyone would so blatantly imply that they won't write another story unless they receive favorable results from their first.
Don't you write because you enjoy it? If not - don't bother!!!
You've got to be kidding!!! The author "teasingly" asks for a little feedback by kiddingly withholding further stories and you accuse them of blackmail? Stop taking yourself so damn seriously. Very believable. Could the daughter have come back and caught them and fought with mother? Maybe, maybe not. Nice Job. Anonymous is a blowhard!
You may struggle at times to get comments , well - legible ones anyway, but this is a delightful little vignette of an innocent age gone by. Well written and captivating. Nice to see a bit of "local" colour too. Too many, sometimes, from across t'pond. Thank you. Deffo a 5.
Seriously? Did you just lecture someone on their writing motivation? An anonymous posting 1-star voter? Really? Everyone has an opinion, and you are not compelled to join, and the website rules don't restrict you from expressing yourself. But try not to post above your station.
And offering someone something if they do something for you is 'enticement', blackmail implies holding something bad over someone to force them into something they don't want to do.
Thanks to all commenters so far, including the Anon I offended. Still getting to know site and its etiquette. Will be back. Much appreciated the encouragements.
Let me start off by saying this, I absolutely freaking loved the single line " I gave up smoking from that day on."
That's just so great, I don't know if this is a true story or not, but I can say for sure that little things like that affected me when I was a teenager for the rest of my life, so that bit really rang true.
I do have ONE bit of constructive criticism however. I found myself wondering what year it was when this story took place. Not that it matters overmuch, but I found that I kept wondering it the whole time.
