  1. Derek,

    I thoroughly enjoyed your piece and thank you for sharing it. I really liked the line,”Who finds happiness in orange juice, Sunday Night Football, and summer.” I felt a connection to that line. I, too find happiness in Sunday Night Football. To me it symbolizes the end of the weekend. I think something that will enhance your writing is digging deeper into your description and add more adjectives to your nouns. For example, add describing words to the line about what clothes you wear. I think that will really help your writing.

  2. Derek,

    I loved you bio-poem, especially the part about fearing Mondays, school and death. I can really connect with that because they are some of my fears too. I think that you can improve upon one line, seeing the inside of an air plane that i think you could add more description and it would bring your writing to a new level.


    p.s, I don’t know about the Bears

  3. Hey Derek I really enjoyed your post my favorite line was Who finds happiness in orange juice, watching Sunday night football, and summer because it shows that you give humor and a lover of sports something that i think you could add onto your writing is a little bit more description of some of the words such as adjectives but other than Great piece
