All three of these were simply marvelous! I loved every single one of them. The short short story is quite a bear to write with any degree of cohesion. Either people put too little and the story is just a scene, or try to use too much exposition and turn it into a blur with no meat. This trio so far, however, are simply PERFECT! Bravo, darling and I look very forward to more!

I am amazed English is not your native language. I went back through your story and really could not find any absolute mistakes in spelling, grammar, tense, syntax, or readability. Even your reply to my review was perfect.
I think one of the hardest parts of writing is dialogue - making it sound like we naturally speak. And you nail that too. I realize it's only been a couple of short chapters, but I've rarely seen any writing as natural and mechanically accurate as yours. Please, please keep writing. Between your creativity and your prose, I think you have a wonderful future as an author.

Interesting premise. Very well written, although the stories could be a little longer. You whet my appetite, then swap plates on me haha 😂
How do you choose your plot words?
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, and for your kind words. Since English is not my native language, to hear that my stories are very well written is just about the best compliment I could ask for. As for the length of the stories, I chose to limit myself, though I do agree that they could be expanded, "Address" in particular: I will probably do so once I'm done with the month-long short story challenge. As for the plot words, I found a list on Twitter: one word for each day of November. It was "advertised" as a challenge for those who find NaNoWriMo too daunting, but still wished to try writing something each day. "Address" was the prompt for the 6th, and "envy" for the 13th. I've written a story each day so far, but these are the only ones that have trans-related content, so I posted just these two.
