Your metaphor with the ink well and the writer's inspiration is wonderful. I love how the period setting enriches this. I could see each action of your MC and was there in his thoughts. Very very nice!

This was so rich with meaning. Loved the atmosphere and the frustration of the writer. Loved Anna's quiet support. Wonderful!

Hi Marita!

This captivated me from beginning to end. My mind raced while I pieced together the characters and his task. I wondered what it was he needed to write. Was it something to document a moment in history that could be shameful? Was it a testimony of an unjustice he had to share before he burst?

You set a nice scene that left the reader curious, wanting to know more. good job.
You covered last week's topic and this week's, both with this descriptive scene. I enjoyed seeing the picture unfold.
I hope you extended this story into next wek so we can all find out what he needed to write. I'm turning blue.
Loved the story and the title! A very intriguing well written mystery to say the least! Congrats...

I admire a writer who chooses present tense and does it well.
I so wanted to know what the 2 lines said. You portrayed the angst within him, the love and acceptance and wisdom of his wife and the curiosity of the cat.
Haunting and special.

Congralations on your EC Marita. Beautifully and gently written.

I just loved the patient, supportive wife who already had the ink well full for the next day. I know this was meant to be about writing, but I got a lesson for marriage out of it too!
