Re: Small Town Sheriff
I overlooked your second reply when I responded to Nik. My apologies for that. I appreciate all of the effort you put into your critique. It's going to make me go through this piece and really tighten things up. The only place I disagree is on the use of the term "backhanded." I've known people who can backhand you harder than a lot of people can throw a punch. That might be a matter of the environment you grow up in. Thank you again for your feedback.
Being more laconic is an interesting idea, especially if I do more with this character. Thanks for your comments. Glad you liked this story.
