Hmmm, 160. I think that you should make it 163, just because. :P


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Hmmmm, let's see. I will update my word count goal to 185!!!

Ah, I just said 163 because it was a random number. :D You can do anything that you want!


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Ok. 'Cause I was just wondering why you choose 163...



message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Outlines don't count in your word count, right?



message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I consider anything I write that has to do with stories, counts.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Got it. I figured since my first story, Swiped, was, in my opinion, a complete disaster, I should plan ahead for my new one.

You can even count stuff for school! I do it all the time. It helps when you have, say, a paper due the next day that you haven't started, so you can't write a story. the paper becomes part of your word count. :D And basically, if YOU think that it counts, then it counts, but if you don't think that it counts, then it doesn't count for you.


Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) I use my RP half the time XD


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks, Roni! I gotta work on my outline but I keep procrastinating and posting on Write in 2009!

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Hey Paige! Congrats!

Day #1:
WC: 402
Worked on Chapter 1 on the re-write of Torn.


message 18: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments Good work! Torn...that's a very intriguing title.


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks. Well, the beginning of the story kind of explains the title.


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

549

I finished the first chapter of Torn!

Yays!

FYI, so you guys know, Kassy has a short a sound, not a long a sound, so it's KASSy, not CASEy. :D


message 23: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 01, 2009 09:34AM) (new)

Thanks for pointing that out! Everyone gets that messed up all the time! Sadly, the first teacher who got my name right was my sixth grade math teacher!


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

Day #2:
WC: 483
Finished the 2nd chapter of Torn


message 25: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments oh, I assumed it was KASS-y, but okay, cool.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

Sweet! Tink, you again, are AWESOME!!! If you can pronounce my name right, you can do ANYTHING!!


message 27: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments Thanks! I mean, it was just common sense, though. If it's spelled K-A-S-S-Y, then why wouldn't it be pronounced like that?

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 3382 comments Mod
Outstanding word count Kassy. I am very impressed :)


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks, Dee!

Well, Tink, some people just have no reserve of common sense!

Well, Julie, I got the invite at the beginning of the month but was not sure whether or not I could do it with school but I just decided to do it!

Paige Miller | 4362 comments Okay, just finished. Reviewing on the 6 Traits, kay? It's easier to understand sometimes. Scale of 1-6.

Ideas 5
Great plot, needs a little development, but very intriguing so far. I take it this is a realistic fic? Good job on making it interesting- that's often a challenge with realistic fiction.

Organization 6
There's not much for me to say about this- either it's organized or it's not. Yours is.

Voice 4
Voice is one of the toughest traits. I need to understand your MC better, but since you've only written two chapters so far, it makes sense that her character isn't fully developed.

Sentence Fluency 4
Pretty good, the only thing I would work on would be varying your sentence length. A lot of them are short and choppy, and that makes it harder to read. Try adding more or combining sentences to add length.

Word Choice 4
Not bad- she sounds the way a normal teenager would, so good work on that. Way to stick with the language of your age group. The only thing I would for sure change would be the part where Bailey is driving Tyler home and tells him she's going to tell his parents, and he says, "You will rue it." That word didn't really seem to fit with his character.

Conventions 4
A few mistakes, nothing serious, mostly typos. Just double check some of your words would be the way to fix it.

Good work, and don't worry too much about what I said. It's your story, and it's just beginning. Who knows, it may be amazing once you go farther with it.

Sorry for such a long review. =/


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

No...that's great! Thanks for reading it! You are the best!


message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh and the past days that I have been updating should be one more day than it says! Sorry!

OH NO! I FORGOT TO WRITE YESTERDAY!! I AM GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


message 48: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments Any time, Kass.

It's okay... not the end of the world. Breathe, Kassy. In and out.


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay. *Exhales* I am calm.

What am I going to do?


message 50: by [deleted user] (new)
