love (capitalize)

by James Hobin

She broke up with me, (;) I am sad. She would hate that sentence, not for its content, but for it's (its) "grammatical syntax errors." I guess she left me because I am a horrible writer. Even now I can imagine her, looking over my shoulder and sniggering at my countless errors (rightfully!). But, in the end, I will always be devoted, body and soul, to her (really?). I love her (I love you too).

6S

James Hobin couldn't think of a witty enough pseudonym.

Unless one writes, they will never know what it is to be a writer. Everyone can be a critic, but not everyone can be a writer. You have a unique style. Keep writing. To hell with anyone who doesn't like your work. I look forward to your next six.

If I'm reading the parenthetical bits correctly, the female character came back and was the one to leave those asides, probably having found this piece sitting in an open Word doc.

Cool story!

Right on and real. That's a rare combo these days.

You took me there.

Thank you.
