                                Figurative language

                                Semi Colons 

                                Hyphenated words


Here's the original is yours better?

Raindrops the size of bullets thundered on the castle windows for days on end; the lake rose, the flower beds turned into muddy streams, and Hagrid's pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds. Oliver Wood's enthusiasm for regular training sessions, however, was not dampened, which was why Harry was to be found, late one stormy Saturday afternoon a few days before Halloween, returning to Gryffindor Tower, drenched to the skin and splattered with mud.


Once you've written it up and you're really proud- take a pic and post it to the blog so I can fire up my hot chocolate and get reading!
