I went to only 1 game of baseball in my life. And well, I thought is was quite nice, but I couldn't get too much taken in the games. But hey, it wasn't first league, so I guess that makes a huge difference... It was nice to try though! But I never get really fired up for any... Show more

When I got the message somebody left a comment, sweatbeads began forming all over my face! Haha!
I thought it would have been a much worse review :P

Don't be too hard on yourself. In order to develop our writing skills we have to be prepared to keep taking a step back from our work and undertake numerous edits.
