Laying on my bed,I stare at my music box like it is mesmerizing me in every way humanly possible.Getting up,I turn on the light and pull out my ancient diary.I flip to the very first page,dated May 11,2006,my sixth birthday.It was also the day my best friend Raina died in what her mother said was a car accident. Opening the music box,it twinkles out a merry little celtic tune.Music of the elves,Grandmother called it. My only memory of Raina that was in plain sight.The pictures,gifts,and fun were all tucked away in various places,as an effort to shoo the memories to nothing,like dust on a old desk.Like cells.What I felt when she died. It wasn't zero. It was something I couldn't describe. I see her sometimes. I push the music box off my dresser,wincing as it slams to the ground. I honestly believe that since Raina died on my birthday,it was me that killed her. Not even the music of the elves can heal me.

This is good. I think it could use a little more sentence variation and maybe some description so you could "see" everything better. But all you really need is more. Go, go, go!

This sounds very interesting and well written! It was a little confusing at parts and a little choppy too. Besides that it was really good! ~Ella

This is very interesting--I like it! :) Here is my advice:

-It's a little bit choppy, so try using some different types of sentences. -You need to add spaces after commas and periods. Example: instead of "Laying on my bed,I stare at my music box", write "Laying on my bed, I stare at my music box". -Think about adding paragraphs. It would be easier to read that way.

Hopefully my advice will be helpful to you. :) But other then that, I really do like the story. Please write more!

This is amazing!! You are talented!! I just agree with pearpearthe14th on one thing, try to use paragraphs and different types of sentences. Other than that one thing, I think you are amazing!! Well done! P.S: If this story was inspired by Lord of the Rings, I officially love you right now!!

I love your writing! But try to use paragraphs. I think you should finish this story! Maybe even try to publish it? You are on a GREAT start and all I can say now is KEEP WRITING! :)

Very good. I hardly read Prologues but this was the first to catch my eye and get me to read all of it. I would say 10/10.

I post this a lot and you might already know but it is < br > for a new line. Reading walls of text is not my favourite.
