When somebody you don't know writes the following about your short story, you are allowed to show off at least a little bit, aren't you?
Needless to say, that comment made my day. It's a funny thing, for somebody who writes reviews for a living, to be so scared to put something creative he wrote himself online. Every time I publish a short story, I think to myself: "Oh no, what have I done?" I'm interested to see what other people think of my stories, but there is always a worry that they won't like it. Luckily, so far the reviews I have received have all been postitive to very positive, so you can expect a lot more short stories from me in the future ;)
