Wow, I never knew u all were following this thread. And here I was thinking it was such a bore. Thanks @all.

Lol @gendebs, 8/10 is still very cool. I am working on a family story, I know u all will love it. Its a new concept where d event will all happen in just a day and in one house, its going to b suspence filled and quite intruiging, jst watchout. Once again thanks and keep the comments coming.

Frank, i noticed a disparity in the physical stature of rogers . Initial you portrayed him as at best of average built and height but later from sean's .description , you portrayed him as being big. That is contradictory!

thanks for the observation. the fact is that i intended to make him big, in fact i formally described him as big until a friend advised that i should rather make him smallish against what a lot of people would expect. perhaps i didn't really carefully go through my edit. i will go back and read once again.

Re: The Tenth Generation by avicky(f): 3:30pm On Jan 19, 2013
Mehn, d suspense in dis novel was sth else. It kept me on d edge to d very end.

But pls edit where u used 'chike' instead of 'chika'.
At last, d efforts of d saviours have not been in vain.
RIP to all d souls dt were lost.

I want more of this Franko.
Thumbs up man.

Wow!!!!
Kudos 2 u frank.......cnt jus wait 2 knw wah happns nxt
Re: The Tenth Generation by Nobody: 7:50pm On Jan 19, 2013
Obviously you have the idea of a nice story here but since it's a novel(you called it that yourself) you must learn to "show" and not "tell", because as it seems, you wrote the entire 'novel' in a short story format. For instance, "Ikenna and Jeniffer watched as Sean was taken away in the police vehicle" could have been
"Ikenna and Jeniffer watched as the police vehicle kicked and zoomed off. The black van raised a cloud of dust which forced them to look away."
Remember I just gave an instance.
Nice effort though.

@denoskiz
Nice piece of advice there. Thnks. Thats why I mostly consider myself a good story teller but not a good writer, however I am still learning the art of writing. Like in my story cyber lover, I effected such corrections after critically doing the editing together with my editor, trust me his contributions are quite similer to ur suggestions and I will definatly trust him to do the same justice as u advice.I am still glad u like ma story, thanks
Re: The Tenth Generation by Nobody: 8:47pm On Jan 19, 2013

It's ok. Story telling is a talent and writing an acquired ability that keeps on improving with time. You have the basics so never feel hindered.
