  • Have you ever been reading a story and found it bogged down in tedious detail or flowery and irrelevant descriptions?…

  • Today, it was raining before I reached the school. Unlike most of the people, I don’t like rain. In fact,…

      You’ve created a great eerie setting with the rain, the family having to find a place to sleep, and the old couple. I’m not sure if you’re going anywhere with this piece, but its got a solid start. I like the frog image too. It feels like you’re foreshadowing something – a major loss maybe?

      My only suggestion would be to cut some of the “telling” about the narrator hating rain. You mention that two or three times and it got a little repetitive because you do a great job of showing it with the imagery of the frog in the puddle, the weird night at the house. Does that make sense? I don’t think you need to keep saying how much he hates rain. Nice job. Thanks for posting.

      Woah – I LOVE the ending of this one. You’ve been writing great twists at the end of your poems lately. I wasn’t expecting a soul reaper at all. It sounds so foreboding too. Nice jog.

  • As soon as she heard the news, she knew it was time to go. Someone had burned the church in…

    • There’s a lot to like in this piece. First, I like Nelly and your references to her doing things “as a proper lady should” contrasted with what she really thinks and wants. That gave her some depth because we all do that throughout our lives to some extent. I like too how at the end the gathering is broken up by a fire. Not sure if the demon started it or not, but it worked. I also liked the dialogue and the victim’s warnings though I wasn’t sure if he was burned badly on his face that he’d be able to talk. Have you ever seen a burn victim? It’s pretty horrific. Maybe have him have lost a leg but escaped the fire so he could still talk and function? My only other suggestion would be to mention the Foot earlier. I thought at the beginning that Nelly was in Red Hill where the church had burned. I didn’t realize until I re-read it (because I was a little confused) that Red Hill is another city and they’re worried that the demon will get them in the Foot. Does that make sense?

    hi everyone im working on a book right now and i wanted to know if anyone has written and published…

    • Amy replied 2 weeks ago

      Hi,
      I’m not sure about members, but I’ve written a couple. They’re not published yet. I managed to get an agent with my first book, but he hasn’t sold it. A publisher recently requested a full manuscript of my second, but haven’t heard back yet. I’ve learned that publishing traditionally (not self-pub) is a SLOW process. I think the best thing for…[Read more]

    • lol write another one plz

    • Nice one. This is what Twilight should have been in my opinion.

    • Amy replied 2 weeks ago

      I’m cracking up here! You captured most every YA cliche – hilarious! 🙂

      Maybe in the next installment their terrible dystopian world can be coming to an end and Winterswind (with her new vampire friends) will be the only one able to save it from their evil government. She’ll come to the world’s rescue with her (unheard of before) superpowers that she somehow discovers accidentally…..

    Hi.

  • I miss you You’ve been gone for 7 months 7 months I’ve been all alone And it hurts That you…

    • Hmmmm, “guilt eating at me.” Interesting last line. It’s kind of a twist on the rest of the piece. It made me pause and reread the entire poem. I like it as the last line but I’m kind of curious why you chose to end with it?

    • i feel you with the sick of long distance relationships part.

This course helped me with not writing such long descriptive sentences. I'm also better at analyzing what I read and applying it to my writing. Every exercise is designed for a reason, to improve something with writing. I would recommend this class to any of my friends who like to write.
