How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth, (a) Stolen on his wing my three and twentieth year! (b) My hasting days fly on with full career, (b) But my late spring no bud or blossom shew'th. (a) Perhaps my semblance might deceive the truth, (a) That I to manhood am arrived so near, (b) And inward ripeness doth much less appear, (b) That some more timely-happy spirits indu'th. (a) Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow, (c) It shall be still in strictest measure even (d) To that same lot, however mean or high, (e) Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heaven. (d) All is, if I have grace to use it so, (c) As ever in my great Task-master's eye. (e)

Lavern Originally Answered: I'm 13 and I'm writing a story. Is this extract from it good or bad?
The vocabulary and story structure were all very good...however I'm sorry, but you see how everyone's comments say that it's exciting and makes you want to turn the next page because the story is pretty good? Well, the story DOES make you want to turn the page, but that's mainly because of the way you structured and wrote it. I don't mean to be unkind, it's just constructive critisizm, and you asked for our honest opinions, but I think that there is an overuse of adjectives, description of things that don't really matter, and a weak storyline since this prologue don't really make sense. It would have been better if you had given us the main plot so that maybe we could have gotten a better idea of it. (However, like someone else commented, this could lead to people possibly stealing your idea and passing it off as their own) All in all, good luck! :)

All of the extracts are not bad in the writing style but I found that the first one was not very interesting and there are some minor errors. e.g. You use the word 'troubles' too close to each other. Make the second one 'problems' or something similar. You also use the term 'literally perfect' when it is clear she isn't. I would suggest you add to the term so it reads something like 'most people thought she was literally perfect.' Would she really want to be known as 'the hottest place in town?' The second excerpt I liked a lot because you have captured how a lot of families act towards their children and their achievements. The touch of sarcasm at the end was in my view typical of the reaction such indifference would promote. Excerpt three is fine but why is it that no teenager seems to wash when they get up in the morning? Also don't use numbers unless it is the year. It looks more professional to write either "eight fifty one" or nine minutes to nine." I liked all of the excerpts but I would think that the first one was your earliest simply because of the use of the word 'trouble' in quick succession. Even if that is not the case there is no doubt that you can write and I wish you well in your writing career.

all considering, id say its pretty good. However, you cant be afraid of contructive critisicm if you want to develop your sills. It does have a lot of unneccsary adjectives. But it does want me to turn the page as well. But to be honest it sounds like an excerpt from a book written for a 13 year old, more than it sounds like it was written by one. Keep writing and youll only get bettter. But what ever you do, dont ever use your gift to make a living in advertising! What a horrible waste that would be....

There are different types of sonnetts and they have different rhyme schemes. Two example types are Elizabethan and Italian. The post with the sonnet analysis was very thorough.

It's a great start for a story. Just one quick advice--before I correct some things, which whether you choose to accept or not is your choice, and it's nothing personal. I'm just a big spelling/grammar freak where if something isn't spelled correctly or isn't grammatically correct, I have to fix it--don't post your stuff--like the beginning of this story--on the internet. There ARE some people who might steal it and take it for their own, so I'd take it down as soon as possible. And also know that there is absolutely no way to prove whose story it was first. Now, I'm just going to fix some little things--like I said, if you want to change them or not, it's completely your choice. I'm just trying to help with it. You don't need my permission to change it back if you want--and the things I change, I'll put it caps, so you can tell. Vampires are more dangerous than people think but less evil. THE first thing I learnED upon arrival to Vince Smith School for Gifted Young Minds or Vampire Training Camp--side note: names for anything, schools, public places, states, whatever should always been capitalized except for things like the or and for, unless it's at the beginning. side note over--. Most of the death we cause is not even BE related to blood sucking. Of all the things people should be concernED about vampires blood sucking isn't one OF THEM.

We cook them before consuming the meat++FOR PLUSES NOTES ARE AFTER STORY AND IT RELATES UNTIL THE PLUSES END. THIS IS ++1 just so you know++ we ARE not complete savages. Even the cruelest ++2devil like++ vampireS drink animal blood. ThOUGH some vampireS killed humans and made them look like the blood was sucked out of them for fun. The reason evil vampireS drink animal' ADDED AN APOSTROPHE HERE s blood--TOOK OUT THE ALSO THAT WAS HERE-- is if a person whoSE blood they were drinking had a vampire relative--?? VAMPIRE RELATIVE?? I'M CONFUSED WITH THAT PART--, it would kill theM instantly. What makes us dangerous is our magic--even the nicest magic--can be used for awful things. Even thOUGH we are not the MOST EVIL magical creature, ADDED A COMMA HERE our magic could be used to blow up the whole planet in the blink of AN eye. We could make all the ++3non-magical++ people disappear in five second--NO SPACE HERE--s if we wish. Magic is dangerous in THE wrong hands if you don’t know how to use it properly. ++1 I think that there should be a comma before and after this, but I am not sure. ++2 I think that these two words should be omitted--or gone. ++3 change none magical to non-magical. Corrections over. I know you didn't ask for it to be corrected, but I honestly believe that it will be better this way. And if you want to change it back, you can. That's why I my corrections capitalized and included side notes and stuff. I hope this helps a lot.

It's okay, but it could use some tweakin', you know? So, like, with your first line: I'd separate it from the rest of the text so that it's obvious that this is the cardinal law the main character learns upon entering this school. Also I'd switch it up so that both the issue of their dangerousness and their evilness is under the same umbrella of what people think. I tweaked it around some for grammatical and spelling, too. Example: --------------------------------------... Vampires are more dangerous but less evil than people think. That is the first thing I learned upon arrival at the Vince Smith School For Gifted Young Minds, or, "vampire training camp." Most of the death we cause is not even related to blood sucking. Of all the things people should be concerned about vampires, blood sucking isn't one. For the most part we only suck animal’s blood, and then we eat them too. We cook them before consuming the meat just so you know we're not complete savages. Even the cruelest demons like vampires drink animal blood, though some vampires killed humans and made them look like the blood was sucked out of them for fun. The reason evil vampires drink an animal's blood is if a person whose blood they were drinking had a relative who was a vampire it would kill them instantly. What makes us dangerous is our magic - even the nicest magic - can be used for awful things. Even though we are not the most evil magical creatures, our magic could be used to destroy the entire planet in the blink of eye. We could make all the non-magical people disappear in five seconds if we wished it so. Magic is dangerous in the wrong hands if you don’t know how to use it properly. --------------------------------------... A few ideas: rather than stating to explain something and ending the sentence to explain something else, maybe you should bridge similar thoughts together with commas ( , ), semicolons ( ; ), colons ( : ), and dashes ( - ) so that the reader isn't all start/stop, start/stop. That can kill your attention span. Also, maybe you shouldn't start off with explaining that the narrator is at a school for vampires; right now, you mention this in the first line, and then proceed to talk about vampires and their potential powers. What does this have to do with the school? One thing at a time, you know? Talk about her getting there, being there, her impressions of the place, and then explain everything little by little, instead of making the first part of the chapter a list of what vampires can do.
