Kyle Hall wants to be
America's Next Author!

Kyle Hall

Hi there! I'm Kyle Hall. I'm eighteen years old and I grew up in small town. My graduating class was only 90 people. I live with my mother, who has been a giant inspiration to my life and a great support. I also live with my younger brother and sister who I love dearly even though they are massive pains at times. It's always been my dream to be a writer. Since I was really young I've read everything I can get my hands on. It was around the time that I started being able to read that I wished people would read my works. So, hopefully America's Next Author can help me with that.

The writing is good, but watch your word usage and try to vary it. In the first four sentences you use the phrase 'at times' twice. There seems to be a lot missing from your story. The abduction is very abrupt. They are taking a picture and BOOM! There should have been some inkling, like someone sneaking up behind them. Also, I know that there are senseless killings, but killing someone to get their life's story seems pretty bizarre. If you have the time, please read my story, 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.
