If I were anything else

If I...

If I were anything else, I'd probably be a better me. 

One who could read more than she writes, or even just another version of me who could ride a bike. Someone who could not only just slay the dragon, but could also save the princess.

If I were anything I'd be anyone, anything, but me! Even a me who could hold their breath for more than 15 seconds, or could run for an hour without feeling she was going to drop dead and drown in the pain of her joints. A better me could make things in life so much easier than the me I am now.

If I were anything, I would be a me with the ability to see the differences between one hour of homework, and one hour of life.

If I were anything else... who could be a better me than me?

If I were anyone, but me, who would be me? A banana? Brad Pitt? Sherlock Holmes? Who could do a better job of being me then me, myself, & I?

If I were anything, I'd be me, but maybe with shark teeth.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

Jaslyn: I loved reading this so much!! The transformation of Nina's self-esteem was incredible to read, and while I was rooting for Parker halfway through, I was very satisfied when Harrison and Nina finally got everything straight. The side characters were adorable - I especially loved Anna, Richel, Mic...

jasminedazz: A very cute short story with a good balance of all elements. The writing is quite detailed giving a visual image of what is being read which quite a commendable quality in writing. Just a small pattern that I have noticed is that there is no paragraph breaker between events that have elapsed time...

Julia Summers PA: Reading this now. It's fun, hilariously fabulous yet taste of what you desire in a unusual read. I will post an actual review when I am finished. But so far loving the flow and the story seems to keep me drawn

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...
