Pageviews past week

             Stop me if you have heard this line before. The first half of this movie was boring. I know what you are saying I wrote that yesterday. Well guess what boys and girls I am saying it again. This time I actually did fall asleep watching this movie and I got a whole 3 hours rest. Oh well perhaps I just need more sleep.

             Now let me tell you about the movie. It was good. It just was not mind blowing. The soundtrack was fantastic though and featured hits from every one from Elvis Presley to Michael Jackson. The casting was good too. Will Ferrell and Tiny Fey lead the cast and everyone else was good too. 

            The plot was definitely original and the storyline fresh and fun. It proves there is a hero in all of us even those bent on crime. There were a lot of in movie references like a shout to Marlon Brando and Donkey Kong. I am guessing the writer of this film is about my age because we both grew up with the same background. 

                This is a film you can take the kids to. It is fun for the whole family and will appeal to audiences of many ages. If you do not like then tell me right away. I’ve got a death ray gun with your name on it.  Check it out today and decide for yourself.

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!
