well now I am back and I am pleased to say that I did read my story out to the class. I could feel my eyes watering and I was trying to read it too fast to get it over with. I was falling over my words and realised I should have read it out loud before as some of the sentences were too long. After a while I got a bit more confident and my eyes stopped watering allowing me to calm down a bit more. Until that is I got to the part where she was dressing. then the eyes started to water again. when I had finished it was just silence and I thought they had hated it. But they had liked it. one comment was that there was no dialogue, and it was picked up that I changed tense a couple of times but otherwise they liked it.
next week I have to read my description of my kitchen. thats easy ...........dreadful mess falling apart.
the new home work is to choose a character to have a conversation with a man in a picture we were shown. then write the dialogue of the conversation
