“Sinop” Essay: Friends’ Comments with my heartfelt thanks

Comment/Feedback 2:

I think you have captured the emotion and drama (trauma) that your main character goes/went through with her struggle to leave her marriage and “find herself” in her hometown filled with fond memories.   She believes to be able to find peace going back to the place that reminds her of the unconditional love of her mother and other relatives (esp. her uncle, Doktor Bey).  We all remember with delight those carefree, loving days of our childhood.  But things did not work out as your character hopes because of the drama (trauma) that follows her.  The experience of renovating that house was therapeutic for her though.  Unfortunately, very costly, but therapeutic.   Hopefully  your literary recounting of your character’s experiences will help others who are going through similar experiences.  I liked the way you worked the poem into the story.

Your essay is very well written. … Keep writing my dear friend…. Keep writing…..I think you have a winner!

“Sinop” Essay: Friends’ Comments with my heartfelt thanks

Comment/Feedback 1:

This is a well-written short story with a withering tone that has a welcoming feel and walks the reader through the different aspects of the writer’s inner emotions.  Hulya in her descriptions creates a vivid world through paying attention to details and providing elaborate images.  The descriptions are heartfelt as they make the reader feel like in the author’s shoes experiencing her waning journey.  She carefully leads her readers from one interesting aspect of her life and family history to another and also includes a descriptive and expressive poem about her hometown.  Overall, it is a very well-written work that leaves the reader with the choice of categorizing it as a ‘memoir’ or ‘fiction’ and as a reader I enjoy this assignment.
