Aha! That's what I'm talking about (There's a Monster in my Closet short story, Hermina's PS comment)... I have been reading (and told) that dividing the story to acts and ultimately going to cell level (aka keys) is a great way to work. Still exploring it though, feeling that I should know more about the writing process before I cointinue writing stories. Are you familiar with Marisa D'Vari's More-Personality system? I recently thought of getting it from the university's lending library but I'm not sure if it's any good. Got any ideas? Thank you for sharing :)

PS Your story stuck in my mind... being a scenario/filming/editing etc student I can't help but analyze it a bit (damn studies, since day one revealing the magic behind stories... sometimes it's awesome, sometimes you fricking learn the ending to a movie you haven't seen yet, aka FAIL) I can actually sense a spontaneous three-act/A Thousand Faces/McKee's Story going on in there... or am I off road totally?!

Man, seriously feel better. And hey nice soup! Even though I'm sure you got TONS of suggestion, I somehow feel the need to suggest this: If you ever want a drier comfort food try boiling some carrots, broccoli, zucchinis, potatoes and celery with nothing else than water and a pinch of salt (amount of water according to the amount of vegetables - amount of salt according to your taste). And after they boil, drain them and add only olive oil and a pinch of dried oregano leaves. It's simple, tasty, healthy and it kicks the flu and bad stomach aches in the butt. Have fun watching it do it!

I like your style - flowing naturally, wanting me to read more -even though I know that I will definitely check my closet tonight. Man, short stories are awesome. YOUR short story is awesome!
