After completing this lesson did you feel more confident commenting on plot, conflict, and structure in your reviews?
Yes, I did. The topics were a reminder of "Freitag's Pyamid" which was taught
in the "Sunrise Class" last winter at Horizon. It refreshed my memory, I also
gained more confidence in pointing out different things in my reviews. I think
I held back, thinking I might offend the writer. A writer really wants to know how he/she can improve their writing.
Do you feel that the information learned in this lesson was useful? Why or why not?
Yes. Although I "knew" things, I tend to forget them. I get many senior moments
Joy's comments on my reviews are "gems of knowledge" and this helped me
How did you determine the rating for the pieces you reviewed?
This was hard and I hate it. The last review I did, I had to lower my rating, because of too many grammatical errors and lack of descriptive writing. Even though the story held so much promise and I hoped he understood my reasoning.
I did say, if he does another rewrite, I would love to review it again
Thanks again, Joy for your expertise..
