I really liked the pacing and how it was written. While I was reading, I was so absorbed in the characters reality, which is weird 'cus introspective stuff always bores me to death. I somehow can relate with both characters: the cynical OL and the frustrated writer.
Girl, don't ever leave the office without at least signing off the computer.
my thoughts exactly :/ it's things like this that always take me out of the immersion, like the first thing you get told/taught working in an office is to log and turn off you computers at the end for multiple reasons...electricity bills, security (especially in case of break-ins)
nobody just gets up and leaves for home just leaving their computer just the way it is, especially not in the middle of an (important) file/email being transfered....it's really just a very trope-y plot device because authors don't want their characters to be the ones to actually fuck up working, but have others mess up their work for them :/
that said the story in total was just kinda...okay? It was n't bad but it also wasn't some super deep soul searching that was done here...but maybe I'm just jaded like that...
