    Annetta,

    Did the website mess up the formatting or something? Or did you intentionally send it in with dialogue all crammed into one paragraph? Also, you switch tenses all over the place. Sometimes you use the wrong tense.

    No that is how I sent it. I have been told to put my dialogue on separate lines. But I thought It was wrong to format it that way. Should I write with the dialogue on different lines? Thanks for reading it I appreciate it.

    If you can change it, put the dialogue in separate paragraphs. That is the correct way to do it. Very difficult to read the way you have it now.

    Cool

    Thanks! I will keep that in mind in future writing projects. But unfortunate for me we cannot change anything at this time. I appreciate the help. Thank you again.
