Maggie got trashed

Yeah, my baby looks as though she has fifteen eyes and a dozen noses in view of the thrashing Maggie received from the independent judges. I hung my head after reading the "reviews."
It was tough even starting a new short story. Valerie lifted my spirits and helped me so much in getting the new one on course. And my dear Sereni:)

And gosh...thanks from the bottom of my heart to the gracious Grayson Hugh. He allowed me to use the ending line from "Empty As The Wind" off his "Blind To Reason" album.

So, I won't post the story here, but I will post the initial comments proudly:)

Sarah & Michael
Okay Patrick,
Don't rub it in. You're really, really good. Seriously. You seem to improve with every piece of work you post on this site. I recently read some runner-up short stories for the Pulitzer Prize and yours could very well have been one of them. Keep'em comin.'

A True Artist
A true Artist to the craft. You painted me a picture in my mind, kept me entertained until the very end, and left me wanting more. Well done Patrick.

Sarah made it possible because of her strong faith. The Apostle Peter walked on water, until fear overcame him and his faith wavered.
Great story Pat..loved it a lot. Can't add more to all the previous comments.

As writers, we expose who we are by what we write. We show our artistry, our intelligence and our knowledge(or, in some cases, our lack thereof). Only a few have a talent such as yours, Patrick....and you SHOW who you are by works such as this. Everything you have ever read and retained, all the paintings you have gazed upon and all your life experiences shine forth brilliantly in this magnificent piece. Bravo!

How Many Times May I Vote For This?
I can't stand "chick flicks." I despise pulp romance novels. I avoid as many love stories as I can, pursuing adventure and sword-fights instead. So...why am I so in love with your book? Holy cow, what a magnificent work of writing this is! Everything about it captivated me, from the descriptions that put me right into the scenes to the cries of confusion from the main character that amplified all sense of empathy already in place from the overall premise. In the scenes where he stood at the edge of the ocean, I almost went to get myself a sweater. And the way you described that "firmament" left my ears straining, my eyes unable to blink. Wow. That's all I have left to say. Wow.

Thank you Sereni:)

Those questions you asked raise further questions in MY mind concerning Michael's sanity; in fact Sarah's true existence! Fascinating.
But I do so love to leave the reader wondering when I write my endings:)

Sarah's Canticle
You are such a romantic, and so artistic in how you paint with such beautiful descriptive words. Did Michael imagine this unique being? Where did she go,and how? These are questions that you have left me wondering.Serena
