|I look at the title, premise, overall structure first. Then I see how it makes me feel. After that, I might comment on little errors which are easily fixed.|
|I do not correct grammar mistakes unless they take away from the story. I make comments about the world and relation to the piece, and point things out for you to ponder upon. I'll talk about my initial reaction to the piece and suggestions based on this. I tell you how you could make your piece resonate more and mean more.|
|I will say what I liked about your piece and if I have any suggestions for improvement. My reviews are usually short, sweet and to the point. I prefer to review short stories but will look at poetry if asked to.|
|I tend to focus on the technical aspects of a piece of writing, looking at the language, flow, style and punctuation. I tend not to spend too much time on complimenting what works well.|
|I like to be analytical in my reviewing. The most interesting pieces of writing often work on a number of different levels, and so I try to consider multiple perspectives when informing the author of what I liked or disliked about their piece. For this reason, I don't get along very well with templates, as I find they turn the whole process into something very clinical! You can expect my reviews to be a fluid, tailored discussion of your individual work.|
|I read the piece through first. I then look to see if there are spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors. Then I tell the author how the piece affected me and what I liked /disliked about it.|
|In each review, I aim to tell you what I liked best first. Second, I will give you some suggestions, if I think they are needed. I will give you some pointers for grammar or spelling if needed, but if the whole story is in need of grammar and spelling fixes, I will only give you 1-2 examples.|
|I give accurate and detailed reviews. I emphasize the points that I liked and point out the aspects that could stand improving. But if I can't find something nice to say, I make it a point to say nothing at all.|
|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.|
|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|
|Hi! I'll be happy to tell you what I like about your item's content and what emotion it evokes in me. If I see an area or two that need attention by way of improvement, I'll make suggestions for you. I will try to word my reviews in such a way that might garner you more views for the item when seen on the public reviewing page and here, in my reviewing forum. I will always do my best to carry on the Simply Positive motto.|
|I don't like using a template. I don't like correcting spelling. I don't like correcting grammar. I don't want to be your editor. I enjoy discussing what I have read. I am very happy to tell people what I have liked and what I have disliked. There is not a lot that I dislike.|
|Brutally honest, but fair. I will give my impressions of the main points: Plot, character, setting, dialog. Then I will get into grammar, spelling, and typos. I will tell you what works, and what doesn't. As far as the star ratings go, I don't rely on them too much, but use them as a measure of an item's relative merit. Take it for what it's worth. Bottom line, my goal is to help the author improve their work.|
|I look at grammar and spelling. Punctuation errors is something that I also look at. I try my best to give my personal and professional opinions while keeping it fun at the same time.|
|I'll review your NSFW fiction, and I will do so with great confidence and pride. I will review your comedy, and try and help you out. But most importantly of all, I'm in it to experience a really fun story. ... but not to mince words, getting off is also a motivation. I recognize that I am a dime a dozen, but I will try to be a *fulfilling* dime a dozen.|
|I tend to write relatively short reviews based on my initial feelings about the piece. I try and point out any grammatical errors and I give the author feedback on what areas I particularly liked and what I struggled with. I am honest and to the point, but also encouraging.|
|I like to put a bit of light humor into my reviews. I don't really go for the whole format style, just a good old paragraph/letter format. I tend not to focus much on grammar, unless I am specifically asked or it is bad enough to take away from the story. I read it more as a reader then a writer, though I will put some of that aspect into it as well. If you like a casual approach with that personal touch to connect you to the reviewer then I'm your man.|
|I am honest, but kind and encouraging. I will offer ideas if something strikes me.|
|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...|
