I liked it, a bit hard to read but nice tangle of thoughts.
You know that Coursera has now a few courses for writers, you can take it for free.

You've somehow ungrown from your first effort. That's not a short story. It's some kind of stream-of-consciousness journal entry. I speak for everyone here, I am completely confident.

If you posted less you'd have more time to really hone your craft.

Jean, I read your story. I can give you notes in chat sometime. Have you taken a writing class? You should take a writing class. I did one last year and had lots of fun.

I took a couple of screenwriting classes. I don't feel like I got much out of them, but I also didn't engage as much as I should have. I dropped out of the second one halfway through.
