Reply to: Critique my short story? by Rachael
The writing itself isn't bad, I can see where it's striving for being lyrical.

But the story itself is so melodramatic and over the top tragic that I can't work up any sympathy for the characters. Also so stereotypical/tropey: the beautiful artistic mother, the father who wants a boy, the ugly, friendless redheaded girl who does nothing but write, just very predictable and tired.
