Thankful for the ending with Mr. Spicer getting published. Felt bad for you and him during the "unloving critiques", so would like to add that, critiques outside of a genuine heart to help, do cripple and thwart the "would be writer".
I loved this story very much. It was so engaging. Is Mr. Spicer a true person, I mean, in real life? I'd love ot meet him and learn from him. See? I was hooked! Thank you for sharing this story. Good writing. Well-done. Thank you.
Thank you for an engaging story about critiques. I enjoyed this from beginning to end.
If Andy isn't a real person, you sure did a wonderful job of making him seem real! Fascinating man. And, yes, critiques are helpful, but only if they come out of a geniune drive to help the writer become a better writer, and not out of a false sense of superiority. Too often we forget that. We try to make ourselves appear intelligent in our critiques at the expense of the writer. Well done.
