Being a father of a daughter, this it is a story I know, and the miracle we received.
Thank you for the memory.

This was my first experience

This was my first experience of flash fiction and I enjoyed the story immensely. You can certainly say a lot in a few words and make it exciting to read. Well done.

One of the best 500 words I have read. Told so much in such few words.

Visual storytelling

Great story, ripe with visual appeal. I could feel the physical and emotional discomfort and almost smell blood, sweat and tears! Awesome.

blasts the pants off the other stories

sorry but this story is a real short flash fiction, with action and mood and energy and pulsing language
the winners were very primary schoolish compared to this
Bravo! more than honourable....keep em coming.

Loved it!

Great short. I really thought it should've ranked higher.
It's the only one out of this year's selection that kept me wanting more. Great job!

well written!

Left me breathless, didn't realize I'd been holding my breath. So glad it was the sperm donor that passed out and not the innocent baby!

Really excellent ...

Very nice job! It held me from the get-go. I believe you should have had a place quite a bit higher up the roster ...
