Good. Feel free to crit my novel, then, though there is a certain lack of wit. Remember to read the guide of critiques, if you don't already know how to properly crit.

I live in the south-west of England.

It rains too much, but it's not even proper rain, just drizzle and spit.

I used to live in Norfolk. I was nice there.

Er . . . Green. (Because it rains so much)

Where I live there's lots of moorland where there's this funny grass that's like moss and it's all bouncy. In the sun it looks really pretty but at the same time nearly baren, a mixture of browns and greens with huge hills and big rocks scattered all over them, that we like to call tors. The weather can change any time as it has it's own micro-climate so being up on the moors can be really dangerous sometimes. Lots of people come on holiday here, so there's loads of mess but it's still pretty and the beaches are nice. If you ever come to the south-west, vistit the English Riveira.

Where I used to live it was flat, flat as a pancake and very green. There are lots of small windy roads, and everywhere there are fields and rivers. Norfolk has been sinking into the sea for centuries so global warming's a little worrying there. It has a hug sky, 180 degrees of it and amazing sunsets. There's also, not many motorways, just minor roads and Norwich is an amazing place to shop. There's a castle and a library made of glass, and an old fashioned market with multi-coloured rooves.

Mud on smaller roads, busses are all dirty and charge a lot. Some poeple are nice and some aren't. School uniforms aren't nice at all, and there seems to be a lot of roadworks. The politics are a shambles and the credit crunch is very problematic, some people are even tapping petrol from cars. The education system is even worse but I won't rant about that. And apparantly Britain's youths are all thugs that run around in groups of knife-loving hoodies, but that's a lie, it's only a few.

What else do you want to know?
