    just finished my second draft... not satisfied yet but not too desperate either, if only I wasn't running out of time!!

    I drafted random paragraphs and then put it all together haha. First draft done, quite happy with it so will probably send it off asap
    Read it out loud (or better yet get someone else to). I guarantee you'll spot something to redraft.

    Yeah that's what I did today, improved it and gave to 3 people to have a look at before I send it off to the college to check. It's going well

    If I were writing one and I was studying English or something I would start it off as 'From a very young age... I have hated clichéd openers, and fallen in love with paraprosdokian sentences'.
