  Dark clouds gathered in the night sky, thier stomachs rumbling for exitment. But they where shy, until the biggest shook and gave off a roar of thunder and a flash of lightning. It hit an old tree, and its leaves shattered like glass, in all directions. People hurried off into thier houses, huddling like penguins to stay warm. Rain sounded like marbles shattering arcoss the rooftops. Wind knocked on thier doors and pounded on thier locked windows. The clouds fought for glory, searching for the strongest wind, and the fiercest lightning. But soon, they where tired, and it only drizzled gentle hazy drops. Plants seemed still, yet the wind had them dancing, and the animals seemed quiet, yet the birds hurried off for better shelter, and the frogs croaked happily, joyuos for the rain. The gentle drops tempted one to come outside and catch them. But it would sting your arms, and scortch your lips. No one would go outside. The clouds where still angry.

First of all, what is this about? Is it a short story, poem or what? May I suggest spell check? You are really good ay describing and using adjectives!

Thanks for the spell check thing :) i'm really bad at that stuff. It's called discriptive writing, where you pick a subject and write about a paragraph about it. It's really good writing extersise. (for more read 'Tips on how to be a good writer') :) I've been through like, 20 writing classes.

you didnt seem to capture emotion of people quite as well or not at all. I didn't really enjoy it. You should try writng something else

kay, thanks. :) I know, it doesent have much purpose. But it is a good discription.

Try re-doing this with the same idea only using analogies. good phasology...poetry-try poetry-it will allow you to express yourself the way you want to, I think. Have you read Emily Dickenson? Try may really enjoy her work.

I like how you give feeling and emotions to your objects, like 'The clouds where still angry'. And yes, I think you have failed with your spelling. Great job though.
