Ella Enchanted

Cinderella is the most popular story told In Hollywood today. It has been done more a dozen times and told in many forms this one will leave a song in your heart and a beat in your step. In this outing Anne Hathaway is the titular character. She must do anything someone tells her to do including, steel, freeze or even kill. Along the way she saves and befriends elves, meets Ogres and negotiates with giants. Carey Elwes steels the show in this adventure though. He is wonderfully sinister and viciously evil. You’ll love him or hate him at first glance. This is fun for the whole family this 35 year old bachelor loved it and I have no estrogen anywhere in my body. The cinematography is breath taking, the writing is creative for a centuries old folk tale and the screenplay based on Gail Carson Levine’s award winning novel top notch. Grade B+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
