I'm a reader, not a writer. I can barely string two words together. I hated writing essays, or any other school work. I didn't start to really read a lot till my kids were toddlers. I was also without funds, so that left the library. I started reading about dragons and got hooked on Dune after watching the movie.
Try to get your kids to read early. My daughter loves to read, my 7 year old grandson reads at a grade 3-4 level. I find that getting boys to read a real pain, my sons refused. I tried buying teen books, comics, sports magazines anything to get them to read, but it didn't work.
I have been following this site since 2002, it's great. It has kept me entertained for many hours. People who write have great imaginations. I have found that what we think is bad grammer could also be someone that has a different first language. European languages have different syntax's.
I recently tried to learn french, I couldn't do it. My mind kept trying to change it back to english.
So be kind in your reviews. To all the writers out there, be brave, and ignore the idiots!

I have been reading a lot of HP/Twilight stories lately, and one of them had the Cullen's eating Bloodpops. I thought what about something along the lines of "gushers", 1/2 cup of blood in a gel cap and shrink it down to candy size and cover it with candy. So if you would like to use my idea, let me know and I would like to read your story.
Here's link to learn basic HTML.
I have been re-reading Did you know? and the part where Dumbledore uses Legilimancy on Arndstrom, I thought it would be neat to put wire mesh glasses on so that it would break up his vision and not be able to stare into other peoples eyes.
