Reviews for The Happiness Collection
grim-dreamer chapter 16 . 4/13/2011
I like the mystery you get from the way the lines are broken up and that mystery works really well for this moment in particular as it's so important to feel supported by the people you love and care about that the format really reflects this. I think the last line seems overly long. Maybe you could split it just before "the most supportive friends" bit begins? Liked this very much. Hope your mother was okay!

And this one was a great moment between parents and children. Have you been to Disneyland now? I've been and it's interesting. There is a definite atmosphere of happiness over there. You really feel like there's nothing to worry about and you just like seeing everything like the way it is in the movies. The fireworks are excellent... But returning to the happiness piece! I liked the enjambement you used for depicting the scene and then how it slowly layered the scene with excitement and shiny eyes. Definitely feel the excitement!

Hey, thanks a lot for the review. Thought I'd thank you some more by reading one of your works. Haven't read a happiness collection before and now I'm thinking I should have one, just to remind myself what feeling happy is like when I'm feeling pretty grim. I like this first one you did. It's so simple and such a wonderful gesture. What a lucky person you are!

Mandatory Intermission. . . (again)

Well done Ashlee (with emphasis where appropriate).

And so I discover that a 15 second gap is mandatory between reviews. . .

Can I review now? Good.

I am happy to hear all is looking positive, hopefully that means you can try and put it out of your mind as the God-awful year 12 continues.

Hopefully this is the last time I will be reminded of what I missed out on!


Loved that you felt "amazing in your new outfit", we are happy to do it again!


On a more reviewable note I really found that this entry flowed nicely, not quite sure how but it did. Keep writing.

I should not have read this entry, it makes me sad that I will not get to be there for your party all the more!


And I just know you are going to out do my party!

Happiness is

feeling sad,

opening up the emails to see,

someone cool,

someone special,

someone awesome,

saying they made you smile.

And instantly

feeling that much better

about yourself.

You make me happy with your happiness, so I'm glad I can at least attempt to return the favor. Congrats on the amazing grades, and best wishes to your mother. :)

August xoxo
