I like a review that makes me edit, even if it bothers me or offends me. So I look at your piece with, "What would I change to make this better and why?" And I write down most of what I think... the limit being how much you paid, more than how much you can handle! And of course there's no guarantee that my advice won't make it worse. Well, except the long list of bestseller credits-- oh, I haven't published them yet. But feel free to request a refund if I really like your piece. It's happened, sometimes I'm in too good of a mood and I think your work is perfect. If it was, you'd be submitting it for a royalty advance... praise is nice but it's like Chinese food, you need more in an hour. Whereas critique sticks to your ribs...

I like to always pick out the positive points in a piece, even if overall I am not enamoured by it. I tend to point out grammatical and spelling errors. I will be honest, but not unkind *Smile*

I'll offer constructive criticism on your prose, grammar, spelling, formatting, and other technical elements. I'll also offer feedback on your storytelling, pacing, and character development.

I tend to be constructive, though I've been known to be a bit too nice...at least, in my opinion. note that while I'll review anything requested, they can be a bit sloppy if I don't take interest.

I will review based on the description of characters, settings, etc. I will also review based on grammar and spelling.

Honest. I do not review harshly or with malicious intent. I only want to give you my honest opinion nothing more, nothing less. • I review on my phone from the hours of 6am -3pm. Back to doing reviews my apologies for all those that requested one and I didn't receive it in time.

In a single word, thorough. I will turn your piece upside down, shake the change out of its pockets and look at even the most minute details. I can be technical but will do so when emphasizing a larger point about the piece as a whole.

So we all admit that not all stories are created equally. I'll attempt then, to review on a curve, based on an arbitrary two tier system. If the story really impresses me in its uniqueness and is publication worthy, it will make my tier 1 review and I will specifically say so. If the submission is average or below and not publication material it will make my tier 2 review but I will not overtly say this. Both kinds of reviews will still garner supportive analysis and constructive criticism where necessary.

I do a lot of reviews. I try to honestly assess both pluses and minuses. Not a grammar champ, but I try

I am a very dedicated and sensitive reviewer when it comes to short stories and review all aspects of a story (plot, character composition, the nature of the story, core elements, grammar/spelling, general themes, etc.). I tend to read the entire work more than once and try my very best to put myself in both the character's and the author's shoes when reading this story. Authors should expect a total review, in which I point out the mistakes and areas of improvement, but also identify your strongest points in your writing. I specialize in short stories and minor in poetry. I am a bit more costly, but you can expect a solid review in a timely manner (see my previous reviews for examples).

When I review something, I look for grammar and it's content. I can say what you miss or what you need.

I'm not sure what this means. I am honest in my review(s) and try to offer constructive advice when I find something amiss. I also enjoy pointing out what works for me in your story so you get equal positive. I want to help you get better. That's why we are here.

My review style is more to the point of what I read. Did it hold my intrest and did I want to read more. I feel too mush attention is put on punctuation and not enought of the "meat " of the writting. If I notice something ovious I will mention it , but I am ot an editor so I don't tell you how to correct your mistakes.

Honest, for the most part. Not hurtful, for the most part. In other words I'll try to be straight up but not step on you face while I'm about it. Oh, by the way, this points business confuses me. I don't want to charge for a review. If I have the points in the bank I'll refund you 900. Why I'm required to ask 1000 is past my understanding.

I try to imagine I've just taken a seat in the waiting room at a doctor's office and picked up a magazine to pass the time. Suddenly - what's this? - I stumble upon your little work of art. As a result of reading your story, either I will 1) I like it so much I MUST have it, so I stuff the magazine down the front of my shirt and hope the doctor isn't checking my heartbeat today, or 2) Become so nauseated at the ineptitude displayed by your chicken scratches that I will beg the doctor to consider me for an emergency euthanasia. Chances are it will be somewhere in the middle.

I love to read just about anything I get my hands on. I will give you my honest opinion, and I will try and help you with errors. If it is a good read I will tell you all about it.

I like to encourage writers, while giving accurate, insightful, truthful feedback. Reviews for novel length items will be an overview and general comment. I don't review line by line or focus on grammar, spelling or punctuation -except perhaps if I see something affecting the storyline, or if I have suggestions relating to improving relevant areas of the work.

I wouldn't believe me if I read some patent summation of my style. I review in public to keep myself honest. Some may think me rude. De gustibus non disputandum. Please include a word count, and be prepared to offer one GP/word. I'll take a quick look at almost anything. And I always try to return a review for a review. At the least, I always send a polite thanks. To do line edits, I charge all the market will bear and a fish. Ten points/word, minimum.
