My story: The Book Critic Dumps His Girlfriend

My story involves a horrible break-up.My story today involves a pretty bad break-up.

Most people can’t help but bring their work home with them, and the narrator in The Book Critic Dumps His Girlfriend is no different.

As he parts ways with his girlfriend, the book critic can’t help but give her some advice on how to be a better character and a better writer overall.

She had hooked him with her backstory: She was adopted as a teenager with the ambition to travel the world to write a novel about discovering hope in poverty-stricken villages. She balanced work and a full social calendar with her volunteering at the local animal shelter on weekends. But after investing months in their relationship, he was faced with her shame – that her character was destined to be static.

It takes some close listening to find out what went wrong in their relationship, but the book critic eventually gets around to making his point.
