  2. I'd like to say, good job in putting 'pen to paper.'

    A few things you should be careful to correct though. Make sure to keep your tense straight. Your story is mostly written in past tense but I noticed you have a tendency to slip into present tense (something "is" happening, when it "was" happening). Also get in the habit of starting a new paragraph whenever someone new is speaking. It seems silly sometimes when you only have two sentences in a paragraph but it makes it much more readable and this is a long-standing practice in the literary community.

    Other than that I see other places where your story could improve. I know you meant this thread mainly for artwork and I'm not trying to be overly critical, just trying to give some helpful feedback. The important thing is that you're writing! So don't let anyone discourage you by their critique. The pros will tell you that the most important thing is getting the words down. You can mess with a second draft or rearranging your story later. Keep up the good work!
