PLEASE DO NOT DELETE THIS STORY! THIS IS A GOOD STORY! Yes, it has a lot of spelling and other errors, but you are just getting back into writing if I read your bio correctly.
I read all the comments. Some of them were VERY HARSH, but the majority of the comments were CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. I HOPE you did not take any of my comments has harsh or negetive; that was not my intention. If I did get you upset with my comments, I owe an you an apology. I AM SORRY. It takes guts for a person to post their writing to the masses , and sometimes people are just HARSH. But, I don't think ALL readers and writers on this site are like that (I can only speak for myself) Myself, I LOVE reading QUALITY writing that has me sitting on the edge of my desk waiting for the next chapter. Life's Lesson is one of those stories that have me like that.
When I offered to see if you wanted a beta reader, I was not trying to be a smart ass or funny or condesenting. I was only trying to see if you wanted help with your writing. Having a beta reader is GREAT tool for some writers because the beta can see errors or can give suggustions that the author may have missed. If you are like some writers I know, they get so caught up in writing the story, to get what is in their imagination on paper that they sometime can't get across the motives of the characters andor story to the reader. The reader CAN NOT read what's on the writer's mind; it's up to the writer to get their vision on the page.
I see GREAT POTIENTIAL in your writing; you are weaving a story that has people wanting to read more. I enjoy reading Faded Love and Life's Lesson. I'm REALLY getting into Life's Lesson.
DO NOT GIVE UP because of what you percieve as negetive comments or harsh criticism. Again I can only speak for myself, but my intentions what to let you know what a GREAT story you have and to point out what areas that I thought needing improving.
If you want to delete or recreate this story it's your decision. I will say that your read count is VERY HIGH for a newbie, errors and all. That should tell you that people are interesting in hearing your stories.
Good Luck and Peace be to you either way you decide to go.
