[font=Arial][size=2]First of all, you need to go and read the [u][url="http://otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=44313"]OB Anthology Basics[/url][/u]. It details the rules for OB Anthology, particularly the one about [i]rating[/i] a thread. Every thread in OB Anthology [b]must[/b] be rated for maturity. Any thread that is not rated will be closed.

That said, on to the review!

Considering you're new at this, it's not a bad effort. Just a couple of things: [/size][/font]


"Mom i have to take off my jacket" I am new at this so bare with me and tell me what i do wrong so here it is.[/quote]
[font=Arial][size=2]An accidental copy and paste, I think?

The other thing is that you have lots of dialogue -- but not much description. There's a basic rule that every writer I've met preaches: [i]Show, not tell.[/i] Instead of [i]telling[/i] us that the boy has been waking up every night, show us. You could say something like: [i]Mokou woke up, sweat drenching his face. He could swear that he'd heard screams, but now that he was awake, there was silence. He checked the time; 2am. Still hours till dawn. [/i]Then you can go on to describe his realisation that he has blood all over his arms. ^_^

It's very easy to include more description. If you mention his Mum, tell us something about her appearance or personality; [i]Mokou's mother was a kind and interesting woman. She had many tales from when she was younger, and all of them involved some sort of mischeif. [/i]Or something like that. Is his mother nice, mean, short, tall, fat, skinny, quiet, loud? These sort of things are very helpful to our impression of them. If you mention the doctor, describe them; male, female? What are they wearing? When you mention Mokou's shirt, you can talk about what colour it is.

The only other thing is basic punctuation. You just need to pay more attention to closing inverted commas, etc, in order to make it easier to read. ^_^

But otherwise, it's a good effort and I with practice I'm sure you'll get better and better and better.
