I can say that I read the first paragraph and was pretty impressed.
Your descriptions have potential,
but you need to sharpen them.

I had to reread a few of those sentences to really see an image,
but nonetheless the image I wanted to see,
and that you inspired this in me through your writing is no ordinary feat!
