|Reviews for Routines|
| Ladiebug chapter 1 . 1/26/2013
It has been ages since I've visited your Fictionpress page, but even all these years later I still have such fond memories of HonoursHill. I came back to reread some of your poetry, and it's amazing me to how I've grown up with your writing. This poem for example, one my younger self loved but didn't quite relate too, is now something I understand perfectly. It's a situation I've experienced, and in my more mature state, something I can really appreciate the quality of. You captured the longing of the heart beautifully.
Perhaps it is impossible for a writer to ever fully grasp how the stories and poems inside their head affect the readers who read them. There are so many intrinsic ways words can be interpreted. Still, I'd like you to know I consider HonoursHill and all your other works as a part of my childhood, and I look back on the days of waiting for you to update and reading those new chapters in my room with a smile.
All the best,

See? I TOLD you I'd be back.
I thought it was a lovely idea, well expressed, but something about it just...didn't click.
Still. I understand this is OLD for you. And probably isn't your BEST work.
About that...I wonder which one is your favourite? Honourshill?
PS i realise my review really doesn't mean anything. Meh.

I'm not sure this review will mean much to you, since you wrote this almost four years ago, but I've read this twice and I think it's gorgeous. It has a great, creative rhythm to it, and you just captured everything about missing someone PERFECTLY.
I really loved it. So very, very good. (:

Hey! *waves* do you remember me? I remember you and your stories, so good! And this poem, my God! You've gotten way better at writing then you were before which is like, crazy b/c you were so good originally! Jeez, you are gonna be published, I swear you are.
How have you been? I've totally slacked off with writing/reading/reviewing for the past like, year. I dont know why. Well I've actually written quite a bit lately, just haven't posted anything. This summer I wrote a story and I think it actually came out really good, I just haven't posted it or anything, I don't know why. I see you've kept up with writing/posting, taht's awesome. This poem was so good, I absolutely loved it. It's SO unique like, it could very easily have been choppy because of its format, but you made it flow so well and it was just really really good, lol.
Hope you're doing well!Beau Coeur

If there was any internet vernacular for the very profound sadness i am feeling now, i would write it. But I'm very computer illiterate, so, clearly, i don't know how to since if I did, I would say it by now. So ... this is the best I could come up with.
*tear* *sob* *STAB* THAT is how sad i feel.
deep, dude. VERY deep.

hm, I kind of like it.
Routines is a great title. Cause that's what it is, and it shows how your routines are CHANGED when someone leaves you. Though the piece seems more for when someone has left you for good, though you've said that specifically in your summary: even when you know they're coming back. Maybe I just haven't felt that kind of attachment before. Deprived me.
Liked all of it, the words. The structure. ( - down, - down, -, - down) The only one part is "tv" yea, the tv fits, as in, yea, people do watch tv to distract themselves. The only thing is that everything else is practically monosyllablic, but this is two. T, V. But that's it. heh. Really like it! )

this is so sad...*soBs* but it's good )
sounds matter-of-fact coz of the way it's written, but it pulls on the heartstrings anyway...*soB*
