  10. Below is a sample of a Minecraft blog that was written with many grammatical mistakes. Find the mistakes in this blog post and correct them. Prologue:There was a explorer named Steve. He explored all of Minecraftia, which was made of bloks. He had a boat which he explored with, until one day the baot hit rough water. it went down!Chapter 1:"Hmmm.... where am I?", said Steve (opening his eyes). My adventure kit, I'll be needing that, said Steve, grabbing his kit which had 2 stone picks, 4 toches, 5 bread loaves, 4 blocks of wood, 3 sticks, 2 aples and a chest. "Somehow, I think I'm going to need more than this to survive here", said Steve looking at the forest that connected to the ocean. Man, am I hungry, said Steve, grabbing some bread out of his adventure kit. "Mmmmm good bread"!! Look a village maybe, the people who live there will let me stay and trade with them , said Steve, looking at the village. Chapter 2: Hi villagers, can I stay here and trade with you guys, asked Steve to the villagers after he told how he got on the island. Yes, you may live here for a while, just until you can get a house built, said the villagers. Thank you, said Steve. I will get right to work on that house. Not now though, it is almost nighttime and the monsters will be coming out, said the lead villager. What monsters, asked Steve. Just come inside said the lead villager. Thank you for letting me stay, said Steve. The plesure is ours, said the lead villagers. What are monsters, asked Steve? You will see them soon enough, said the lead villager. Now everyone eat dinner and get some sleep, said the lead villager. Adapted from: http://forums.yogscast.com/showthread.php?112638-Minecraft-Book-1-The-Story-of-Steve
