    Tara does a great job of building tension and explaining how she felt when she reached the point that she needed to just say NO to her father. It reminded me of a time where I had to say no and stand up to my dad. While the circumstances were different, it was a major turning point in my own life. She wrote with enough emotion that it brought up my emotions. I am really enjoying how well she can write in scene. It is a great example to follow.

      I agree. This scene is a great example of conflict, building tension, and resolution with a major turning point. Dads are difficult to say no to. I understand that one too, so it must have taken so much for her to do that. I’m glad her words took you to a similar place in your life.
