Hey team. How are things? Things are good? Alright.
Maybe some people who have been here for a while know that I write stories a lot. It is this weird thing, but whatever. And I am always, always, always looking for people to be mean to my stories.
Well, now I have some urgency behind me--I'm trying to enter a portfolio into a scholarship that would pay for two full years of college. It is kind of a big deal, with a deadline that fast approaches. And no one I know will be mean to my stories. They are saying things like, "Cool story" and I am pulling my hair out and stuffing cushions with it, team. So I am turning to you guys.
I've made Googledocuments of five stories, and if anyone has a spare three-to-seven minutes and could be mean to one-to-five of the stories, I would be over the moon. The first four are under 4 pages double-spaced; they are not crazy-long. Links are here:
Brown As Horses - about embarrassing yourself in front of your cool surfer friends.
Jump - one of my favorites, about a girl who has lived everywhere---with a SURPRISE TWIST at the end.
Amoud's Roofing Ladder - about, well, I don't really know what Amoud is about. About something strange in a park in Philadelphia.
Rooted Blue - prose-poem about how hometowns make you regress.
In the City of Night - about Los Angeles and how hard it is to be happy there.
