  7. Quick question. I know I have to start with the sentance you have given, but is it ok if I change it just a teeny, tiny bit? It will still be mostly the same. I want to change it to "My sister HAS never ceased to amaze me, but this really IS the limit." I'll only change the two capitalized words.

    Please hurry and respond. Thank you,

  8. I got your comment. I didn't actually want to capitalize them in my story. I was just using capitolization to show what I wanted to change. What I want is to add a "has" in between "sister" and "never", and to change "was" to "is". Can I do that?
    Thanks,

    It isn't very good. I hope it's not too long for you to read. I didn't know how long you wanted it. :)

  12. I forgot to give my story a name! I'm gonna call it... Annabelle Martin... So original, right? Just kidding. That's not original at all. :)
