RE: Memoirs | The Ink Well Fast and Furious Festival - Day Two

Heavens! You make my head swirl. Such wonderful descriptions and so many of them. I think your first one, which is the briefest, is the most successful because it is so visual. You place us in a scene by giving us clues:

rainy day
bed-weather day
steaming bowl of dimsum noodle soup
cramped but efficient space that made up Chow's Dine-and-Scram
constant clinking plates and teacups
place that made the best oriental dishes

You not only paint a scene with your words, but also convey a mood. Very skillful, I think :)
