Hot damn. 5 minute Jacobsen appointment and the lady (Marian) was actually helpful. "I enjoyed your story, read it in record time, and have very few changes to suggest." I have been whining about how the Jacobsen people are trained in working with analytic writing but not creative writing, but honestly, my analytical essay got far less work put into it than the story itself, so it works out nicely. Marian had lots of sensible stuff to say about improving my essay, as well as a few good suggestions for the story itself.
