Thank you for the kind replies!
"And about the writing, I think you need to vary your language a bit, for example you had a lot of sentences starting with "he".."
I have always had trouble with that, and I absolutely hate it! I think I'll read a couple books or stories and look at the way they are written. Because for some reason I have trouble avoiding that.
Thanks for that tip, and I am glad you like my opening.
"I assume you are quite experienced in the ways of photoediting?"
Well, Actually I don't think I am 'experienced'. I just downloaded 'The Gimp' (Basically free photo-shop) a few weeks ago and have been playing around with it. It's very fun.
"how did you get the backround using freewebs.com"
It's just one of the paper backgrounds on freewebs, nothing too special.
Devin- Thank you. I am glad you like the story. (And the lamp!)
Hopefully Chapter 2 won't be far off, I have already taken one picture for it, and I have a little of the writing done.
Spongey- Thanks! I'm glad that you, too liked the opening statement.
