    Intense comp entry, Stephen. A life lived the hard way but bringing its peaceful moments. Visual and enjoyable.

    Same bit as Barb - ghosts and young spirits - and the image of breakers in the moonlight. Nice. :-)

    Lovely flow to the narrative of your comp entry. "Young ghosts" is fabulous.

    Your comp entry is properly dark and dangerous.

    Great voice in your June comp entry. Quiet, yet angry, and with that surprise ending. I felt totally in her head, her world, which is so full of regret. A very interesting piece, I’d have liked to read on.

    ST - the genre of your comp entry isn't one that I'd normally warm to, but I found myself completely drawn in on this occasion. There's great pacing in those 500 words, which has a pull all of its own.
