You sound like someone who has a hard time writing a short story!
Wow! Super helpful to hear about your journey. This is a great idea.
I thought I was the only one taking so long... Unfortunately, stories do not write themselves right...
 #RebelBC This is a nice way to draw the reader in, but I think you can streamline it a little. For example, you might consider removing "just inside the door" since it doesn't add much to the scene and sounds a little awkward.

                              Nice first paragraph! I don’t see this style of beginning too often. You’ve done it justice with the vivid descriptions.
 #RebelBC We just heard about her throwing objects around. It seems a little odd to have this so close to that.
