 How do you get over writers block or start a short story? Because my dad surprised me by entering me in a writing competition and has already paid the entry fee, and now that he told me I cant write at all. The deadline is fast approaching and i'd hate to waste his money. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience, your picture and writing is flawless, as usual, which is why i came to you for help :)

Um... *peeks*
This is amazing and all (as it always is pfft), but I couldn't help but notice a little mistake on page 22.

"Sure she did. Simon, that tube quite nearly saved your life. Do you realize that you nearly passed on last night?"
"The key word here is 'almost'," replied Simon, lifting off his mask to scratch his nose.

You said 'nearly' in the sentence and then Simon said 'almost'. I don't know if that was deliberate, I just spotted it and felt I should tell you. That is all.

Keep being awesome :)
You have a amazing way with word, and i cant wait for paper stars to be published so that i may add a copy of it to my book collection

Dang can't wait to read the rest :D Is the book finished? How many chapters? :D
I really love Simon's character especially, really sweet, really realistic :)
Oh, also, I'll note you with what I think were a few errors, I hope you don't mind :)
