This is cute. I really like the stance you took with writing it. Staying inside the word count can be difficult but yours doesn't seem lacking at all.

How cute and surprising. A true gem. I love this short fiction that sets up and takes you to the conclusion with such precise and brief intention. Nice job! A time honored right of passage given historical importance! Brilliant!

Good job. I love those old libraries. This building is filthy. They really need to have it cleaned. Where is their civic pride? There are so many old stone buildings like that, and not all owned by the govt, who is stingy with funds. :)

This is absolutely great. It totally captures the experience of a young child entering, what to him, was a grown-up type building, and was there for a grown up type responsibility.

This was a nice read! It was a surprise to learn Jimmy was signing up for his first library card and not embarking on a more strenuous life journey. Your words created a great visual and you managed to construct a fleshed out story using only 75 words. I hope you do well in the contest, great job!

What a wonderful little flash fiction story. The ending caught me by surprise. The photo reminded me of the library building in my little hometown (nicest architecture in town).

This seventy-five-word story, A Life-altering Journey, brings the initiate point-of-view of a young child to the life-changing introduction into the labyrinth of literature. Neat.

Good piece of flash, Lee. Public libraries do have that sort of ominous presence, don't they? It almost like a court building, at least where I grew up. Good luck in the contest.

Take care,
Russell

    Thank you, Russell. Yes, that was my touchstone. Official buildings are intimidating. I'm glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

I don't care who you are, that's entertainment! It almost made me laugh out loud. Priceless! I never saw that coming. That made my day! You did an excellent job writing this causing the reader to think that this was something sinister and unusual. Then, after you've already got us on the hook, you drop the surprise on us. I love it! I enjoyed reading this humorous and well constructed little story. Well done!

    Thanks so much, Jeffery. Entertainment is always my goal. That you were entertained, pleases me. Misdirection works well with Flash Fiction. I'm so glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee
