Vance Bell, Red Hot Chili Pepper Category: New Writer viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1095 *Challenging Topic: 201/200 points (Self-created challenge topic.) *Grammar: 89/100 points. He patted his pocket to assure himself, not to insure himself. Waited of his eyes to adjust? Waited for his eyes, surely. *US Spelling: 100/100 points. *Style: 180/200 points. I love this story! It has tension, pace. Of course you read it as a clichéd cowboy story, but that's what the author wants you to think. And even with the title as a huge clue, the ending still comes as a real shock. (Well, it did you me, anyway.) I think it's fantastic. *Total points: 570/600
