    Thank you. I was worried that at 6 full pages (in word) the story was too long.

    I read something interesting last night. C.S. Lewis was writing about George MacDonald. He said that George wasn’t that great of a writer, but what made him enjoyable was what he wrote about when he wrote fantasy. He wrote myth. Myth is different from fiction, in that it doesn’t matter how or what you write when you write myth, it’s the story behind the myth that makes it good. Something true and good comes through the myth. A series of recognizable events that harmonizes with the reader to create a familiar and enjoyable experience.

    So I guess what I’m trying to say is, that what you said, reminded me of what he said, when you said I ‘spoke for all people who have dealt with sales people’. I told the myth of the salesman.

    I’m glad you enjoyed it. I thought for sure I was in danger of losing my readership with it, since it is so long, and may not have been interesting to anyone but me…

    Well, I’ll admit, some people might not read it since it’s so long, but if you’re going for the idea that you want material for your future generations to read, it’s perfect.
