  1. Great point of view here – I kind of want you to follow up with a counterpoint from the inside-girl’s perspective. What does she see when she glances up, I wonder? Nice job!

  2. What makes this story are your final two words, “I know.” That ending brings a sense of wisdom and knowledge and hints at a wealth of untold experiences that, as a reader, makes me want to know more. As for her advice to the studying student, only more writing will let us know if the advice was fitting or way off base. Good use of your 33 words. 🙂

    • Thank you! I don’t completely agree with her – I am a teacher and so I was always the girl behind the window! – but I also think that sometimes we can be so focused that we don’t truly see. I guess I feel some regret about not being more “carefree” in university! 😉

  3. Interesting! Something about the tone of this almost invites the reader to disagree with the narrator–or is that just me?? I kinda want to tell him/her not to burden this woman with his/her own past regrets. She may very well be thoroughly enjoying her time behind that glass. 🙂 Thanks for linking up and getting me all fired up.

    • Yes, completely! I too get annoyed (!), because I am a teacher and so I was always the girl behind the window, and I did okay! However, I also think that sometimes we can be so focused on things that we don’t truly see or experience life. I think I feel some regret about not being more “carefree” in university! 😉 Thank you!
