What a great lesson! I made the mistake of reading the homework and by the time I'd read three or four I was spooked. Next time I'll jump in and have a go before reading back over others' works. Excellent learning opportunity. Thank you Jan.

Aw Nonnie Mouse we will love yu' despite lots of '!'. :lol: I agree with you - this class is a great learning area and heaps of fun. I wonder will dashes come under scrutiny one day. I like dashes a lot. Do you think I am talking in class right now? Perhaps I should not be rattling on. Just a though...

Do I get a gold star for confessing that as a chronic 'can't speller' I have probably -very probably- spelt it wrongly? Voila! Your classes are reaching out and making us reflect. P

Incensed

It reads smoothly your way Jan. I should concede...except that? No I agree on second thought. At first reading I jumped in and judged Mary for being a bit precious. Not relevant to the lesson. It actually happened and I chased the two for several blocks, calling out 'even if you get away I've seen y...

Exclamation

"Hey! Put those down!" Mary took off after the two thieves who had nearly knocked her over in their hast to get away. She had no idea why she should be so indignant;she was just another customer after all! Perhaps it was that they had snickered as they grabbed the boxes and fled. What would she do i...

Tense decision

Ahh what a gift God has given you. You're so --nice to be with - anyway back to lessons; I much prefer the past tense. Hopefully active voice. I often find I'm in a muddle though. Fun all the same.

Tenses

The Christmas break is here and its time to write The Novel But it isnt happening. My nose is always in someone elses wonderful book. Yeaks th...

Grammar

This is wonderful. I remember getting 'the cane' at school, for wrong parsing. I whack commas in everywhere now; just in case. Hows that?

Re Australia

Hi Tarinoel-- Hope I've remembered the spelling --I come from sunny Queensland - I started a reply here about Aussies, dust storms and our vernacular and it grew too large so will keep it simple in the interest of not clogging up the message board. Thanks for the contact. I am sure you will love thi...

I new! Just finding my around

Hello all. I am feeling a bit awestruck. Not sure how things flow yet but it is quite fun watching you all relate; so in the interest of not being a fly on the wall I thought I'd say Hi. Love the way you do things. Don't feel I know enough to critique yet (not by a long shot) but have already gleane...
