Wednesday Prompt 2014 - #17
Reading the rough draft , brings back fond memories of the first time you had penned a short story for your school magazine. I had a lingering prophesy about your budding talent and today you have not disappointed me , dear Lekhika (writer).

But this will only help one in the short-term and one will have to chart the course and navigate on the strength of one's skills , observation powers and the ability to get under the skin of the characters. And as Stephen King has rightly said
I hate to dispense any further advice and wish that you win not only accolades but also win your reader's hearts.
