What is your reason for passing, without comment, poorly written items?
|Every now and then, when reading the work of others on the site, I come across a very poorly written piece. It might be a narrative or a story with serious grammatical, structural, or spelling errors that detract from the overall work. Perhaps the characters are flat, or the plot is flat or missing altogether. It might be a poem that is so flowery, metaphorical, or effusive that it defies my immediate understanding. |
I really don't believe in giving a low rating without comment, so I find myself just clicking off of it. Even though I know that those are the pieces upon which I should be offering suggestions for improvement, for various reasons I often do not. I was wondering, am I the only one? And if not, why do we do that if the purpose is to encourage each other?
Let's see what's going on here.
