A Pocketful of Poppies - Part Eleven

Part eleven of A Pocketful of Poppies is posted on Fictionpress, ready to be read and review so please do so for me. Inspiration has been with me for all of the stories I have been writing and I hope it sticks with me. I love to write and I love to write for all of you. Please let me know what you think of this newest chapter. Below, I have posted the song Waterline by Sage Francis and for some reason, each time I listen to it, I think of Justin. Give it a listen if you want. Thank you in advance for your thoughts and reviews. Happy soon-to-be Friday.

I liked this chapter! I really am enjoying this story of Poppy and Justin. It's so different than Wonderwall, but in a great way. Justin has so many more sides to him in this story, which is amazing. I'm so glad you are writing this. I can't wait for more!

Absolutely loved it. I don't know who I love more- Justin or Poppy, they're both so unique. And dude, detention resulting closet kisses FTW!

"She had to stay away from Justin."

Hi Kate,

Justin calling Poppy delusional for thinking kissing her won't happen again was completely sexy. I smiled through the entire closet encounter. Thanks for that!

I also have something to say about the note at the end of ch. 18 of The Prittiest Thing. I absolutely LOVE the long chapters, they make my day, esp. the ones where a lot happens. I know this will sound rude but it's not fair that you shorten your chapters b/c some people can't handle reading them at the length they are now. Devoted readers are happy with long chapters and for those who can't handle it in one sitting, they should just return to the story in intervals.

I REALLY hope you don't shorten them just because a few people have problems with it and can't handle them. The rest of us that love them will miss them dearly. I hope you keep them how they're now :) Thanks!

I really like this story. 1st I like the background you are laying for Gretchen and Nate, it is so different from Wonderwall, if fact I'm going to stop comparing the 2 because besides the characters names these stories are almost completely different, and I like that. Man you can rally see you growth as a writer, and I loved you even them. Poppy's reaction to Justin is soooo real. I love it It is that whole me? Is this really happening to me thing, that so many of us feel. Thanks for another great chapter.

I DON'T THINK SHE SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM JUSTIN! If I was in her shoes and Justin appeared out of nowhere, then all bets are off LOL!! I love it and love it, but I wonder what Chase has to say about the whole Justin & Poppy situation because in 'Wonderwall', Chase was a butt.

Anyway, good chapter...I love it!!

I didn't jump into reading your stories until recently so I actually went back to read Wonderwall just now. And I must say that your story telling skills have improved tremendously! Not to say that Wonderwall wasn't good, rather, "A Pocketful of Poppies" is just turning out to be so much more.

I feel a little lame for saying that "A Pocketful of Poppies" is my favourite story, but the situations, the characters and the wordsmith is just absolutely amazing. I've read the story and reread the story because I just can't get enough of it.

The story just has a soft-spot in my mind and I wanted to thank you for writing this story to share.

Thank you.
