Broken Pen by Graeme

Recommended Posts

One of the best things about this short story is that it doesn't go overboard or get schmaltzy. The story stays on point and says its piece succinctly.

I like the metaphor of the blank paper, broken pen, and spattered ink. It fits the surrounding story truthfully. -- I also liked that there wasn't an overly melodramatic dropping of lots of tears on the page or the dreaded single tear.

When someone writes while grieving, it comes out in about the way Graeme wrote it.

Well said, Graeme.
