    Don't worry, Yodimus, this is a workshop so we're here to help you out. :)

    Okay, so don't take this wrong, but the first mistake I notice with your list is that you posted 6 items instead of 5. This is an easy fix! All you have to do is delete one of them, or maybe change them to letters so nobody will bother to check how many there are. Soon you'll be hearing the sweet sound of onomatopoeia success!*
