Review: 2019.534 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a sweet little tale, with all sorts of allusions to the creative process. Superficially, Colin has to learn that he can’t simply “buy” Melanie’s love by creating things for her.

Con: It went on a bit too long after the point was established. And it’s kind of hard to feel much sympathy for a guy who’s got everything.
