Talking About Stories: Felicia Blooming

I want to spend some time this year talking about the stories I've written, complete or incomplete. My plan is to post a couple of these a week, focusing on different stories in different collections, and talk about the world at the time it was written, the characters, and the stories I can see writing to go with it.

Today I'm going to be talking about Felicia Blooming. It's the story I was reading yesterday, while I was trying to work out how best to post my works, and while I was reading it I was reminded of how I learn about the characters I write about. Often they surprise me. I don't learn the whole truth about them until they want me to. Although it's an enjoyable process it doesn't always make writing an easy thing to do. There are going to be spoilers, so I suggest you read the story before you read my commentary.
