|I do not rate/judge your work based on mistakes. No matter how many. I see no sense in discouraging writers for doing what we all do. If the writing isn't particularly good, I'll tear it apart with the intention of reverse engineering it. I'll lay out your mistakes, tell you what you're missing, what needs to be added or changed so that when you put it all back together, it works. I WILL NOT be rude, condescending, brutal, or harsh about it. There's no shame in mistakes. What I look at, is the story you're trying to tell. Whether it makes sense, if there are plot holes, the characters aren't likeable, real, or the dialogue is off. That's what I judge your work by. But I won't leave you hanging. I'll give suggestions, ideas, or advice on how to improve upon those things. Now I'm no expert, I've no degree of any kind, I'm not a published author, but after 8 years of writing, I'd like to think I know enough to help others.|
|I will not give a very structured review; It will be just me typing out what I think about the piece, generally how well I think it accomplished its goals, what I think the goals are, and also generally a couple of notes on possible minor tweaks to the piece to make it slightly better.|
|Passionate, and hungry reader. I try to feel the vibes of the writer, and review accordingly. A. We are all in this together. B. Encouragement, and Empathy followed here. C. I am not a perfect writer or grammarian D. Language works when it works. Communication on some level occurs.|
|I look to be entertained, informed, and connected in some way. It may be wrong but if the first few lines or paragraphs don't hook me in some way, I will leave without even reading the rest. Also, I will notify you if I run into errors.|
|Honest but supportive reviews that contain some story and copy editing. Not shallow but serious. Sometimes lengthy if the item reviewed requires it.|
|Sometimes, I use a format; sometimes I don't. I tend to talk to you like your a person, tell you what I like, what I don't like, that kind of thing. If you are looking for spelling and grammar mistakes help, you will have to look somewhere else. Need to know if a plot angle works or if a character feels real... I am your girl.|
|When providing reviews, I tend to maintain a positive outlook. While some things may not work in a story or other writing sample, I feel it is important to identify what works well and how parts done poorly can be reworked into something better.|
|Versatile: I'm good at reviewing different types of writing in different ways. Honest: While I do my best to be honest and encouraging in reviews, I don't omit things. If I tell you I like something about a piece, you can trust that I'm not just saying it. All-Inclusive/Well-Rounded: I look for the good and bad in writing. I'll give you an overall opinion as well as the highlights and what needs worked on.|
|Easy critical and I'll tell you whether I like it or not.|
|I offer praise when it is truly deserved and advice when it truly wanted.|
|I try to be honest and encouraging. If I can't do both, I'll just be honest.|
|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.|
|I tend to cut a wide swath through a review, covering all not only a general overview and characterizations, but also technical areas such as grammar and punctuation. I consider my style to be more in-depth with a good deal of time expenditure on each review. Hence, I tend to give out fewer reviews because of a busy personal schedule.|
|I used a template for all of my reviews. I will comment on plot, characters, scene/setting, grammar, and anything else that comes to mind.|
|I focus on SPaG and in-line problems. Passive vs Active. Not too good with the telling and showing, but I'll point out awkward lines, give you SUGGESTIONS to how it could be written better. The good, the bad, what worked, what didn't. Just look at my other reviews to get the gist of what I do.|
|Conversational - I don't have a formal template. Comment to my perception of the work, both substance and technique; highlights & misses. My reviews are public by default, but I will gladly make private upon request.|
|I'm willing to review almost anything except poetry, which I have little to no knowledge of what makes a good poem. I don't care for heavy erotica and I will only review fan fiction if I've seen/read the source.|
|When reviewing other's work I tend to be straight forward and honest. I do not do sarcasm as it can be taken as being rude. I do not like horror stories.|
|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 will find positives and negatives in your work. I use a template with a basic short story outline, my initial impressions, opportunities for improvement, and overall thoughts.|
