  1. You did a great job of sharing you protagonist’s (lead character) confusion with your readers. I’m still not sure what is going on but your story has made me smile.

  2. Hi, I am glad to read your piece! Your words are really interesting. Your use of dialogue between speakers are highly effective in conveying an atmosphere of tension. Well done. Keep writing!
