This month's first Pick of the Fortnight is @LadyofthePond 's "The Quiet Sea." A highly unusual short story, it reminded me of the madness of Heathcliff in "Wuthering Heights." @LadyofthePond wrote fifteen short entries from the main character's point of view, a girl living alone on a grim island, her vague but beautiful descriptions showing a quick descent into insanity and fear. A quick read, it is an interesting example of literary experimentation. The first chapter begins here, one click away from a beautiful first sentence: https://www.wattpad.com/642861484-the-quiet-sea-entry-one
