Now, 9 months later, I'll ask that again. Is there any great difference
in meaning between final and último in regards to usage? I've noticed that they don't appear to be interchangeable on DL but that could be due to pedantic programming rather than for linguistic reasons ;D
Gracias mi Coronel.
"It is the final moment, as she hurriedly completes her poem about the moon and hands it to her teacher. The timer beeps loudly, and several other kids groan, reading their terrible, half-finished poems. She grins, knowing hers is the best of them all, and puts her poem on the top of the pile in the basket placed in the middle of the classroom."
If you liked, please comment or upvote, five upvotes and I'll write more! Edit: Time to write more, six upvotes! "The teacher starts reading poems aloud from the basket. Some are terrible, some are okay, but none are as good as hers. She's certain her poem will be featured in the school newspaper as 'Writing Of The Week', she can just feel it. The teacher, Ms. Glinderman, reaches into the basket for another poem. It's hers! She can feel her heart pounding, as Ms. Glinderman reads it aloud. As the teacher finishes reading the poem, there is scattered but rather loud applause throughout the classroom. Ms. Glinderman reads the last few poems, and then the bell rings for recess." I'll write more at ten upvotes!
Am I the only one who would consider her to be an awfully self-centered person? I mean, to me it seems awfull that someone should be thrilled by the failure of others...
I like and support your enthusiasm and joy for writing. The structure of the story is good and it reads well =)
But if I were the one writing things, I would want to carefully think over what I write, so that it carries some kind of a message within and ends up being something more than just a simple story.
Kind regards, T.C.
