    Hi Erina,

    Welcome to the forum. I hope you mean it when you ask to be informed about your mistakes...?

    I've corrected some individual points above. There are a couple of general points.

    1/ It's usual to have a space after a full stop.
    2/ It's not usual to write in italics; I'd tend to use them for emphasis - as I have in my responses above - and it's not uncommon to use them in writing to indicate a character's thoughts.
    3/ Do pay attention to your apostrophes; often it does nothing more than display poor English language skills; occasionally there are two options, and use or lack of an apostrophe can change the meaning. On a side note, there's another thread where we're discussing whether a particular sentence needs a full stop or a question mark; and the answer is that you can have either...but each one will give the sentence a different meaning!

    Good luck, and keep writing.
