Santa Skipped Town (Short Story) - 4/5/2003 3:35:16 AM|
This is a very interesting story, clearly written from the heart. With respect to your writing, I only have one suggestion: Try using the simple word "said," instead of "mumbled, retorted." You do use other words effectively such as "cried, asked, screamed and yelled." But these are one syllable words. You want to end the action of speaking as soon as possible with a short word. I'd also avoid adverbs describing how a person speaks. Usually distracting and unecessary ("she repeated sternly," "Krystal said emphatically").
Overall a commendable effort. Study your craft, don't force the words or try too hard (your best writing in this came naturally when you talk about planting the "seeds" in the sandbox as I suspect you may have really done this as a child), and you'll go far.

Welcome to American influence. Keep writing - and READING. The world needs strong voices of reason - the people of your generation may be it's last hope.

Krissy, this is very well-written and I can relate to it a lot. I guess we have much more in common than our writing. I've been in the same situation since I was young also. Congratulations on realizing what it is you want and going for it!

I think you hit it on the head here. Sometimes it seems all people know how to do is swear and curse. It makes me wonder whatever happened to intelligence?
