Writing Feedback - All You Need is Grit

"A well written account of humanity in the face of a natural disaster. Although Cecil s life is shattered by a storm, he saves his child's toy. The image of him carrying that plastic bag filled with the few things he could salvage from his life, fighting the storm as he trudges forward to his family will stay with me." - W. Shear


"The description of the hurricane was excellent. I could just see the winds and the rain ripping apart everything. Also you showed the fortitude of the people. They will rebuild and start all over. They were good with each other and will support each other through the hard times ahead. Good story." - M. Coolick
