Re: Be A Better Writer--THE MAGIC ENDING

While America sleeps -Aussies rule the cyber waves!
Don't know why I wrote that it just seemed like a good idea at the time. :lol:
I like the idea of writing the 'miracle' in the middle as it satisfies all requirements.
Thanks Jan.

Re: Be A Better Writer--THE MAGIC ENDING

This really is a great learning site. Thanks to Jan and everyone else for contributing. These Magical Endings and even the Magic Middles have made me try think more professionally- as opposed to 'pie in the sky' . Still the challenge of finding the 'Magic Beginning' is pure fun. I'm off now to learn...

Re: Be A Better Writer--THE MAGIC ENDING

Good one-thanks Jan. I did get that understanding from your introduction; just wanted to clarify my thoughts. I've been busy swotting over the 'Good Beginnings' and can feel the love of creating with words rising up. Lots of material for me to go over and learn from. I think I've just ended that las...

Re: Be A Better Writer--THE MAGIC ENDING

Hi Jan, I've been away so long. Your site was one of my first revisits. Deus ex Machina-I'd love to know how to pronounce that correctly- has me betwixt and between. So much so I metaphorically rushed for a pillow to place on the fence as I seem to be spending a lot of time there- just thinking abou...

Re: Rating Worksheet (as used by the judges)

Hi Deb,
I need a Rating Worksheet too please. I have a feeling I should have printed one out a while ago but can't remember where to track it now. I need a catcher and a secretary and a housekeeper too. :? Regards. Philippa

Re: Be careful when posting your e-mail addressess :)

Thank you for that Red Barron--I was clueless -though grateful-as to what you had helped me with (by mt posting an e address publically) until I found this explanation. Seems I was stomping where angels fear to tread. :? I still like the 'hunt like a spider'. I check it out each time I see your post...

Now homework:

"Aw Mar, give me a break," said Jake. "Noone does their homework on a Friday night."
"You do Son, especially when you are playing football all day Saturday and Sunday."
"It's probably gonna," Jake threw up his hands for emphasis, "pour rain".
