    My coursework is called "A day in the life of..." and I have to write atleast 1000 on my typical day. I've redrafted my coursework twice, and my teacher says it's a strong B but she wants me to get an A (I'd like an A*...)
    My targets for improvement are to create atmosphere and using imagery, which has always been a weakness of mine as I lack inspiration!
    Does anyone have any tips for creating atmosphere and using metaphors, personification and similes? And for adding a little 'sparkle' to my work?
    Thanks :]
