Story Review for DD: Some Sort of Love
After reading your story, I wanted to watch the real Dirty Dancing movie way more than I did before! Directing, grammar, and the plot line was solid. However, there were so many characters introduced and it may be overwhelming for the reader to take in so many at once.
Directing: I saw great directing throughout the story. Overlays, such as the boat, were used nicely and correctly. I also saw great spot directing to represent background characters. Something I could suggest would maybe be adding more zooms to focus on certain characters or objects.
Plot: Because I haven’t watched the Dirty Dancing film, I’m not sure what the general storyline is. One of the guidlines for the DD contest is that the story must be based off of the original plot. I briefly went on Wikipedia to search up the plot, and it seems to somewhat match your story’s plot. I was engaged throughout the whole first chapter especially when we met Johnny. I sort of felt him and Baby’s connection.
Grammar: I didn’t see many grammatical/spelling mistakes. There were only a few rare occasions where a sentence did not have ending punctuation.
Other Suggestions: As I stated before, so many characters were introduced at the start. There was Baby, Baby’s younger sister, Nadine, Baby’s younger sister’s love interest, Johnny, and many more . There were many times where I had to wonder, ‘Who was that again?’. I suggest to maybe spread out meeting the characters or have the Main Characters give a few hints on their personalities.
