    Your stories flow well. Very easy to read and get into.

    Thank you.:) I think the flow of a story is important in this form, when there's not so much opportunity to develop character as fully as one would like. It's ultimately a trade-off, so I try not to let the story get bogged down in minutiae at the expense of the rhythm.

    I find that with any story, if it flows correctly, right from the start, it naturally draws you in and before you know it, you have read the entire work. Have you ever sat down, started reading a good book, looked up at the clock and said, "Where did the time just go?" The sign of a good writer, IMO!

    Sometimes, I start reading, and can tell right away if it is what I like. No nonsense, right to the chase. The writing has to come right out and grab you, peak your interest or, you will simply be turned off and move on.

    Take care and keep writing!
