100 words week 27

Well, this week Julia has set quite a different challenge: " This week, you are all going to be critics. You are to choose a piece from last week and write a critique of it." More details at http://jfb57.wordpress.com/2012/01/16/100-word-challenge-for-grown-ups-week-27/

To be honest, the idea of critiquing someone's work filled me with dread- I am doing this weekly challenge in an effort to improve my writing and am delighted if anyone reads it and leaves a comment- if that comment offers some constructive criticism then I'm even happier.
BUT... that's me!
Anyway, it is an interesting challenge and I am sure the entries will be great reading.

I am writing about Hurtled to 60 and beyond's piece- Autumn's Auction (http://hurtlingtowards60.wordpress.com/2012/01/13/autumns-auction-shocker-100-wcgu-week-26/)

Autumn, the proverbial black sheep of the family, makes her return in this thrilling instalment in the series. Autumn, well dressed but lacking in morals, continues to cause her family heartache and despair , disregarding her late grandparents wishes whilst leaving a path of destruction in her wake.
In a mere 105 words the writer is able to draw you into this tangled web of deceit and family feud. How will it end? Will Autumn get what she deserves? You will have to wait for the next chapter to find out. I have a feeling that Autumn has a few more tricks up her sleeve.


  1. Anna - if ever you decide you don't want to be a teacher any more, I think there's a career waiting for you writing the blurbs on the backs of books!

  2. Wow you sum that up beautifully thank you. It sounds so interesting I would want to read it myself :-)

  3. This is a great review with as much energy & intrigue as the original! You could have a funding stream here Anna!;)

  4. *breathes a sigh of relief* this was an interesting challenge- thanks for reading and commenting. Am going to take a look at the others; feels a bit strange commenting on comments on pieces but we're all in it together :)
