    Re: short edit

    There is nothing we can do with your piece until you sort out the lack of capitalisation and punctuation. Please edit your post, following these rules of written English:

    - Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Speech should be enclosed in quotation marks, for example ... "Hi", I said awkwardly.

    Don't use "textspeak/chatlish" such as "gonna" - it's "going to".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
