John says ...

Rachel captures the excitement, and disappointments, of dating extremely well. It takes a real talent to make a reader feel as excited, scared or sad as a character does.

At the moment, the essay tells quite a simple story. The plot focuses on Juliet's date with the charming Romeo, and the revelation that he is, in fact, a 'bad guy'.

Nga-lam's exciting story uses suspense - one of the most valuable tools of a writer.

What changed and why

At the start of my version of 'A surprise from Juliet', Juliet's mother doesn't yet have specific worries about her daughter; she just suspects something is wrong. Clearly, this isn't as dramatic as the opening to the original story.

But it does allow me to show more of the key facts being revealed or discovered.

Enough drama to make even the Bard proud

It's Sha Tin on international day - the world stage. But wait - this is Shakespeare without Romeo or Juliet. Two of the fairest stars in all the heavens. It's a lamentable tragedy. They've done the last scene first.

No Takeover Target. Ouija Board spirited away. Someone will have to command the stage, but who? The home side is reading for the part - this could be 2002 again.
