Story: My Time Travel Adventure on Titanic

Since you obviously know a lot about the Titanic, I would have loved to see more detail in here, and to have the main character overhear or encounter some of the historic scenes (such as the captain and his first mate discussing the condition of the Arctic seas, or right after striking the iceberg). The story became a bit too focused on the playful antics of the main character and George, so that it lacked the drama that the Titanic story holds. If I'm right that you're a young writer, I want to encourage you to keep reading and writing! Please take a moment to read my story, "Dating Safari," and share your comments.

I think if someone actually went back in time to the sinking of the Titanic. It would be a lot different than what you wrote about. Sorry, but I really didn't like it. If you want to, read my story, 'Drift Away' and leave a review letting me know what you think.
