Airport

I had arrvied at airport got out of the taxi took my bags and payed the taxi driver, he said bye to me i replied bye. While i was walking from the taxi to the airport i had caught some attention from people and the media. I had signed some shirts and pictures. Just then someone from the media asked me a question where are you going i didn't answer then they ask me are you going to usa i said nothing they asked me are you going to Boston i said nothing and carried on walking i went to baggie collection they hi i replied hi are you going to be the next Liverpool manger they asked me i replied maybe they took my bags i went off smiling. 1 hour till i bored my plane i was nervous and excited. I went into a shop and brought some lunch for my plane. My phone rang again it was my wife say see you soon and good luck. 5 mintues later phone rang agin it was Fernando Torres saying that Sky Sports News know that im going to Boston and el nino wished me luck in Boston i said i will looking forward to be working with me again. I started walking to the boreding place. I was taking Britsh Airways bussness class. When i got there i had 5 mintues spare i sat down and went on my Ipad. I went on Sky Sports News i read the Breaking News Nando wasn't lieing about what he said it said Rafa Benitez is travelling to Boston to discuss about a job at anfield. I got up went to desk they hi hope you have good flight i said thank you i showed my passport and ticket. I pass through and went to airplane i walked to my seat and put my bag above. We where about to leave Liverpool for Boston i happy and ready to meet up with John.W. Henry.

Chapter Three
Boston
I had arrived at Boston, i was really tried at the flight. When i went outside the airport. I say John.W. Henry i went up to him he said hi and said hi then we went inside the limo. We talked about what i done at Liverpool and why do i want to do it again i gave good answer i think. I arrived at the hotel and John said bye and see you at the meeting i replied bye. I went to get the keys from my room at the hotel desk, my room number was 145 i got up to my room it was very nice and i was amazed that John would get me room like this. So could i be the Liverpool manager again ?

its a good story so far mate... under chapter 3 though why not describe the room more for example:

"As the door swung open i gazed at the furniture that filled the room, there stood next to the wall on my left was a mahogany desk, with a light placed in the corner turned on, so the light reflected back up to the light, and up the wall. Next to that stood a corner light on a metal stand, it looked unsafe to touch as it might break. looking to the oposite side of the room, i saw a window that had a view of the open city, the window was slightly open so i could hear the sounds from the street below, car horns blaring mainly. The open window allowed a gentle breeze to come across the room and flutter my hair. looking to the right of the room i saw a TV mounted on the wall, and a closet made of wood - stained to give it a darker look. the furniture was a peach colour to match the walls. there was a recliner chair in front of the TV and wooden chairs to go with the table - which lay in the middle of the room with a green plant that looked like it had had better days resting on top. I placed my bags in the room and closed the door behing me, trying to get acustomed to the room i found my self wandering into another doorway which found the bedroom with an en suite, "perfect" i thought. In my mind i thought about my wife back in liverpool, she would love this i should of asked Henry if i could have brought her along. the bedroom looked like any other with no distingusing features, it had a bed a bedside table and a wardrobe. The bathroom had a shower, sink and a toilet - there was nothing else of note. i thought to my self "where is the kitchen?" i rang up room service, and asked where i could cook, the lady on the other end replied "im sorry due to fire hazards we are not able to install kitchens any more" with this i slammed the phone down and took a wander around boston."

went into a bit of a tangent there - sorry lol

its good just needs more description (for me anyway - maybe im being overly critical... either way good start) will follow :)

It said Breaking News Rafa Benitez is on the brinkk of become the Liverpool Manager again werid because i haven't done the meeting. It was finally time to go to the meeting i had butterfiles in my tummy. I got into my fancy limo and off we went to Boston top bussness place. I arrvied there i was instucted to go to 3 floor room 23. I took the staris as i was very exicted and happy. I knocked on the door bang on 6 pm, i heared a voice say come in Rafa i went in and sat down oppestite John.W. Henry they asked me this what do want to do with Liverpool i said i want them to be champions league team agin i want them to win the europe league this season i want win the league with them also.

Melwood

Today was the day of the press conference, it started at 9 am. i got dressed into a nice suit and i got into my car and off i went to melwood. I arrived at melwood there was some fans outside melwwod that asked for a autograph i signed loads of them they where really happy when i done it. I met John outside the press conference he said to me just be calm in there i said ok. When we went in there the camaras started flashing a lot of them i thought i was going to be blind. The frist person asked me are you happy to be here i said of course. The next one said what do you want achive here i said a lot of things. the thrid one said are you going to spend money in the transfer window i answered maybe i will. Then the next one said are you going to let torres go i said no. The last one said Was your time in Inter Milan did that ruin your repetation i said no it didn't. The last one asked John why did he bring Rafa in he replied and said rafa is a great manager that can achive a lot of thing here at Liverpool and i think i made the right decision also i think this interview is over.

its a good start mate, just reda over like you asked, my advice would be:
Type up in microsoft word before hand then simply copy and paste in, and then add pics.

try to develop an underline story line for example mine, Fernando leaving/staying as with king kenny.

Try to create some villians/hero suprisingly you find yourself hating people you use to like.

and live as the character, for example i learnt from my infamous Rafa rant or something

just some feedback hope you develop it into a good story
