To Be a Monster

To Be a Monster
Summary: I see you’ve chosen this. Interesting. It must mean that you have good taste. This is my story of how I, a teenage girl of almost total normalcy, became a monster, a beast, a creature of the dark. There are many places to start. I could begin at my birth and continue on based upon a collection of childhood stories of me doing cute things told by my parents, but that’s not how you start a story like this. You start with the end, or maybe the near-end. Once you've entered my world, there is no going back. You've been warned, so enjoy the ride as best you can.

I loooove this story! I want more! I would suggest though to separate dialogue and paragraphs, but you seemed to do it more towards the end. Nice job! 5/5

The dialogue is very realistic, but in the beginning, they should have been separated into paragraphs. I do like what you have so far, and I'd love it more if you expanded on the chapters a bit more. The idea is very cool and I'd love to read more :)

I admit, I haven't finished it yet, but it's nice to see something so well written not entirely focused on "vampire romance".

Thanks!  There does seem to be a surplus of vampire books ever since Twilight became popular.

This is a good start.  The only criticism I have is to put dialogue on a line separate from your paragraphs more often.  It just makes it easier to read.

You're doing a GREAT job! I can tell you're going to get better and better, and this story will be polished and sanded down until it is PERFECT!

Very VERY VERY!!!!! RAW manuscript, but great story line. you should try to make the chapters longer.... if you got a good editor to put his or her input in andchange some thingsadd some stuff this would be amazing
