The Lovely Bones

                     This movie was creepy, compelling and riveting. In a word it was fantastic. I was glued to my seat for two hours and fifteen minutes. I could not move, I could not speak and I dare not pee either. It is if I were in a world of my own. Do you know what I mean like an in-between the living and the dead? 

                The cinematography was breathtaking, the plot moved along perfectly and the acting was as good as can be expected. The score kept you interested the entire film and screenplay was expertly written. 

                This is not one to take the kids to see, nor is it one that you will soon forget. It is quite possibly the best movie in theaters right now and certainly the best film I’ve seen in quite a while. I would recommend this movie to anyone. In fact, I’ve already raved about it to three people. 

                                                                                                                                                                                        Grade A+

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!
