Aaron, excellent comments. I had all that in a previous chapter...but, I see what you mean, it really doesn't count in the present scene. Adding sensory flavors does a lot to set the mood.

I just read your excerpt from Black Diamonds. You have a good voice, Henya. Just two criticisms for now. Some of the dialogue at the beginning of the piece is buried and I would like to be shown a few more details of the diner. Sensory details like: Is there music playing from a cheap radio by the register, what sort of food prep smells are venting from the kitchen, is the coffee fresh, or does it have that subtle burnt smell of sitting on the burner too long. Then again, this is an excerpt. Maybe you reveal stuff like this later.
