9: Dear Journal, I wish that some day my stories will be known all over the world. Mr. Dickens and I have chatted about story ideas for him and I a great deal of time but my stories remain in Denmark. I also regret never learning to write but in my time period telling my stories have been successful. After my mother died I thought about my life and what it really means to be a writer and the thought came in my head, but it was to late to learn. I fell out of bed and now I haven't much time left to learn anyway so I just hope that my stories do better then I. I'd like to thank all the people who wrote for me and may they live greater lives then mine.
10: Dear Hero, All that you have done through out your life has inspired me. My dream is to be a famous book writer or journalist and I want to have the creativity that you Hans Christian Andersen had. My favorite kids movie was always 'The Little Mermaid' and sense kindergarten I had been inspired by that book, and movie to be a great writer someday. As the author I thank you for the inspiration.
