Thank you so much Cara!

I loved your story! I have been working on a few things, but I have never been published. Someday!

It IS kinda exciting to get published!
I really enjoyed this! One of my favorite classes in college was Linguistics. I have always loved different accents and dialects.

From someone who has written three complete novels so far, and is working on a fourth, with none of them even submitted for publishing yet, congrats. It must be a temendous feeling. I have a freind helping me with one of my works. My stories, I have been told, read well, are exciting, and would be great, if I could only flesh out my characters a bit more. Ahh well, we can't all be great writers. I mean, witness my typing skills.

But for you, I am excited. Good going.

Don't worry about your typing, weed. Did you know that F. Scott Fitzgerald submitted his masterpiece as The Grate Gatsby? (Editors are standing by.)

Go ahead and submit your works to a professional. You will get some realistic advice about your material.
