Thank you for your kind words and suggestion. I think I erred on the side of trying to relate the POV of uncertainty of the day, while maintaining interest. It intentionally takes a personal POV, and I had hoped that the pieces up front would have compelled the story onward, and I’m sorry it didn’t hit with you. I will definitely keep this in mind if I do a major revision for something else — And my writing this has set a kind of ball rolling/avalanche locally — Not sure where this is all going to end up. It turned into something FAR more than my perspective alone. And that’s a really good thing, I think.
