I decided to participate in the WFC it's my first one, I wrote Tela.

At first it was really short and I didn't think it was any good, but Blix and a friend of mine in journalism did some edit work on it.  They told me where to flesh it out and all that, so I reworked it over and all.  I thought that the pacing of it mimicked a sex act as well, with the paragraph of short staccato sentences almost like thrusts in the middle, but that may not have come across.  Overall I have no regrets.

It was an excellent first entry.

I think I said something obnoxious like that I wanted to like it more than I did.  Nothing in the writing bothered me, but as I've written elsewhere, I have a harder time getting into the essay-like exposition of the one-person narrator.  Too influenced by Robert Parker, I guess, who can write an entire chapter with no more exposition than is necessary to keep track of who said what, and tell you a ton of backstory, present situation and emotional state without ever touching an adverb.
