Review Style
In my view, the primary focus should be on encouraging the writers to write. I do not review items I don't enjoy anymore because I see it as a waste of my time. So, if you get a review from me, I enjoyed reading your work. The amazing thing about this whole process is that reading an inspiring review usually leads to me reading more of a reviewer's work also. So, it's a win-win.
I'm good at...
encouraging others to write because I love to read.
I will not review...
something I do not like. I do not enjoy writing hyper-critical reviews. I do NOT believe that "honesty" is a synonym for "mean." If I see someone being "mean" here on the public reviewing page, in group behaviors, or just acting as a bully I will not send them my reviews. The only exception to that would be judging a site contest - there all items get honest (and hopefully diplomatic) reviews of the work from me with no exceptions.

What brought HOOves to meander and glide in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Balloonr*I am the judge for today in "The Writer's Cramp. Thanks for entering! *Delight*

What does HOOves think about and contemplate while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I think the same sort of thing is going on here!

What does HOOves applaud and moo about while reading your item?

This part makes me laugh:

"Last night, what really wasn't fair
was which specific sock they stole.
They took the good one from a pair
and left the one that has a hole."

Selective aliens! Mine lurk about the clothes dryer!

I enjoyed your poem very much - congratulations on your win!

*Balloonr*I am the judge for today in "The Writer's Cramp. Thanks for entering! *Delight*

What does HOOves think about and contemplate while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I thought about Spring and it is a very welcome time, especially this year. You capture a lot of the magic of the season and incorporate the words very well.

What does HOOves applaud and moo about while reading your item?

*Thumbsup*This was my favorite part because it flows so well:

"All creatures
Bid Winter adieu
From toad and eagle and shrew"

The Writer's Cramp is a great way to meet other writers (by reviewing their entries) and to get your work read. Also, many Newsletter items featured and Quill entries have originated from experienced writers who regularly read in "The Writer's Cramp. Whether you win or not on a particular day, rest assured that your item will be read by those on this site who enjoy reading for its own sake.

P.S. I am someone who loves to read. That is a pretty simple statement and it is true, in the spirit of Ernest Hemingway, who once said, "Write one true thing."

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow*I saw a link for this on the Newsfeed and was intrigued by the title and came to read.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea*I think that a lot of people buy into what comforts them during hard times.

It is a dangerous combination of factors. You wrote this last summer. A lot has come to pass and the press and government make use of everything that happens to achieve their goals.

The analogy to belief in Santa is intriguing.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

*Thumbsup*In the cancel culture/equitable police universe that exists now, you can't have an opinion that isn't group think. Reading 1984 is a good way to go, too.

Maybe if they follow up in New York on what was done, the rest of the czar/governors will unravel.

I think you know of what you speak in the sense that a tragedy has become a tool in monstrous hands.

Congrats on your win. I read this with great interest.

What brought Hoovsie/tHiNg meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow*You sent me a lovely review with an invitation to come and read and comment so here I am.

What does hoovsie/tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I think no matter where one lives that getting away is a dream right now. We can do it in our imaginations as you so vividly portray with your excellent imagery.

Life has been confined this past year, but it opens up the mind to dreaming of new adventures.

*Cool**Idea*

What does hooves/tHing moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I especially admire this part:

"Created by God Himself, Nature calms.
Divine bonuses for relaxation...
Look for getaways, away from city/town noises."

Time, more than actually getting away, time and imagination help to heal and strengthen us after a loss.

Fine poem - thank you for the invitation.

Thanks for entering!


What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about the year we leave behind and how you dealt with that. I thought that you were fair and not unduly harsh or critical. It is more like a realistic assessment of what didn't happen and why. This year is a rough one in the rear view mirror because there was so much "down" time. In other years, we can tell ourselves we were busy and be more convincing about it.

I found I could identify with that feeling of maybe regret and maybe not regret, but understanding.

*Cool**Idea*

My criteria for judging Dear Me letters is about what I find memorable and interesting. It may not agree with anyone else's judgment. I also enjoy a sense of humor or something that touches me personally.

That is to give you an idea of where I'm coming from in the whole judging realm.

No expert on keeping my own New Year's Resolutions, I didn't even try to think of any this year. So, I'm also looking to be inspired with my own plans for the year.

I admire you for all the thought and effort you put into this.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I like how reasonable and realistic your goals are. Experience has taught you well. It's not like you are setting goals that you know you can't reach. You are fair and that's a good way to treat yourself. Be fair.

I enjoyed the humorous ending also.

Well done!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about reviewing and the achievement that you seek, which focuses on the writers and not the one doing the reviewing. You put in the work to see what works for everyone and learn from that. I think that is a very positive and forward thinking way to go. You stress that sticking to it is key and I can't argue with that. Doing the work and learning from it takes you to a place where you can't go far wrong.

We all have days on here where someone said "Great job!" and we were cheered and decided to write on. Those of us who have stayed here a while have been visited by some serious positive reinforcement now and then.

I also think that rubbish you reference in reviewing may be in the eye of the beholder, but it's interesting to think about how different people view other people's responses to their work. I have seen people who think every review directed elsewhere should be tough and acerbic, whilst the same individual thinks that everything they write is golden. So, it's good to keep an open mind, especially as time goes on.

I liked this passage:

"Approach each writer with eyes open, able to see the potential in everyone you review, their strengths and weaknesses, their pride and their pettiness, how they handle criticism and how they handle praise."

That is so interesting and it begs the question whether the review should be tailored to something about the person more than the work. Or maybe it should be balanced.

I always enjoy the humorous aspect of looking at things. This made me laugh and that's always a good thing. I laughed nervously in the face of you-know-what, but I did grin and whisper - "Good for you!"

I hope by the time you get this you will have a vaccine if you want one. Either way, I wish you all the best!

You deal with the elephant in the room very well. I ask myself how can we move on to the future, with this horrible thing hanging over us. Will media and politicians who have used this horror ever be able to let go of the power.

Wonder on Hooves. I hope you do laugh in the face of this awful thing.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

You launch right into some admirable goals that will help you attain the lifestyle you aspire to. I like how you have a fallback position to that at the end in case a year doesn't present enough time.

You certainly seem to have done your research and it's clear that setting up and maintaining a romance writing website ties in nicely to your day job and experience. In other words, this is quite realistic for you and you show the reader (me, in this case) why.

I admire you for all the thought and effort, networking and research that you put into this.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

My favorite part is the name you selected, The Romance Bloke. How perfect is that. I think The Romance Guy comes off as a little arrogant and off putting. Romance Bloke says you are earnest and trying and not thinking you are all that and whatever. Well done because I think that the name is such an important element. You obviously have what it takes to put in the work and the time.

It's good, also, that you put some of the basics in place in 2020. It shows that lots of planning has gone on. Writing your own romance efforts ties in well to networking with other romance authors. Most authors are big readers.

To me, the fact that you have such a knowledgeable and talented mentor is key, too.

You seem like you are well on your way and this is a brilliant strategy to create a presence and get to where you want to be eventually.

All of it frightens me, but you will make a lot of friends and contacts and who knows where this will lead you.

Brilliant and well done, the sky is the limit.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about how the letter is written from the point of view of the self engaging the author to tell your (the self's) story. Calling the writer an "idiot" may not be a good approach, but it does get the reader's attention.

There is a definite mood of frustration expressed at the writer with regard to finishing the story.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

The notion that what is needed is threats instead of encouragement is an approach that didn't occur to me before.

Self abuse as a strategy leads us to a place of dark humor, but will it get results?

Only time will tell. I enjoyed reading this as an outside observer.

Very creative! I hope I didn't overstep the mark with praise there.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I like how you launch into a review of 2020 and your evaluation of why you fell short of goals last year. Combining script writing projects with work, seems to be an avenue that will lead to more output from you. Entering as many contests as possible is a positive goal as you are realistic about probably not doing every single one. You will try, but the goal is not rigid or set in stone.

It is good to try. You can't win if you don't enter.

When you mention reviewing, you say you will keep trying despite not doing it as you envisioned so far this year. It is good to be flexible with your goals. If it's done nothing else, 2020 has taught us that life throws us curve balls sometimes.

Everything is all dependent on circumstances that are unknowable until they happen. I applaud your realism and clear vision when it comes to things you want to accomplish.

Well done!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

You start by reviewing the challenges of 2020, while letting go of the past. I think a lot of people will identify with this. You had a lot of change upon change going into 2020 and then everything else happened.

2020 taught you to believe in your coping gifts and abilities going forward. That is a valuable tool to hold on to.

Never putting up with abuse is stressed. I think this is a cornerstone for strength and that rewarding yourself is a good thing. You seem well on track to do just that as you juggle many things in the future.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

You took me on a reading journey into your imagination that blossomed during 2020. How inspiring and original!

While some of us were moaning about whatever was going on, you spent your time writing and escaping to a world of your own imagination. Using the writing and creating as a way to cope and prove that this is how one with the gift to write copes with things thrown at you by outside forces.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

Your goals are refreshingly specific and center around your love of the arts. Music is a main one that can carry someone through tough times.

Your interests are varied and seem very enjoyable. You combine photography and painting with travel goals. I know that a lot of us look forward to getting on the road again. Early fall seems like it might be a distinct possibility. I hope it is for you. Picking up where you left off with puppetry and dancing also sound like things to look forward to now.

It's always good to have goals that are positive and engaging and not dwell too much on the year behind us. It has its effects, but you don't seem like you are going to let it keep you from moving forward and that's a good thing.

*Cool**Idea*

My criteria for judging Dear Me letters is about what I find memorable and interesting. It may not agree with anyone else's judgment.

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow*I am reviewing your Dear Me letter as one of the judges for "Dear Me: Official WDC Contest.

Thanks for entering!


What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I like your specificity in setting goals. Organizing your poetry collection and editing your novel sound like they are things already set up and waiting for you to do your thing. I agree that 2021 is probably the type of year to approach goals as ways to finish things that might have been started in 2020 and before. In other words, ease into it. That seems like a good way to go about achieving what you want to achieve.

I Write and Good Reads seem compatible. Reading is a way to inspire writing and doing that I Write Activity is always fun. It is good that you have the discipline to do it. You know you do because of past performance.

Walking more is good, as is meditation and starting slow and easing into things to get oriented.

*Cool**Idea*

My criteria for judging Dear Me letters is about what I find memorable and interesting. It may not agree with anyone else's judgment. I also enjoy something that touches me personally.

That is to give you an idea of where I'm coming from in the whole judging realm.

No expert on keeping my own New Year's Resolutions, I didn't even try to think of any this year. So, I'm also looking to be inspired with my own plans for the year.

I admire you for teaching in this scary time, too. I bet that's a challenge every single day. None of us knows what really goes on in the education systems right now. I have two grandsons who are still doing virtual, but I think that there is a shift toward in-person where they go to school. Who knows how these young ones will cope with all this nonsense in the end or how much damage has been done by the malfeasance and mismanagement of politicians.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I particularly like your approach to "changing your eating habits" rather than dieting. When that happens and one makes an effort to do that, healthier times cannot be far away.

Well done with everything and thank you for all you do as a teacher to help the young ones!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about how it might be good luck for the year that you did a Dear Me letter this year. I did one last year, but not this year with the same sort of nervous belief. Maybe the combination of you doing one and me not doing one will lead to a better year overall. Superstition, I know, but there it is.

Your message to yourself is to do better. I like that because it's not like you are beating yourself up or overly indulging yourself. It's encouraging without providing too much praise.

Giving yourself January is also something I could identify with. Somehow I'm thinking that January and February are for getting organized. I liked where you went with that.

Your goals with regard to personal history writing and roots are consistent and tie well into writing a history of Writing.Com at some point It's part of your history.

*Cool**Idea*

My criteria for judging Dear Me letters is about what I find memorable and interesting. It may not agree with anyone else's judgment. I also enjoy a sly sense of humor or something that touches me personally.

No expert on keeping my own New Year's Resolutions, I didn't even try to think of any this year, partly out of the superstition that I mentioned earlier. So, I'm also looking to be inspired with my own plans for the year, without committing to any.

I admire you for all the thought and effort you put into this.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

The part about maintaining an active site presence is good and mentoring someone can be a positive thing that connects you with someone just starting out. That is a win/win for you and the site. You wrote a lot of the site explanations/guide I think and that's something that helps new and older (like me) members alike. I use it a lot as a reference or when I want to actually learn something new. Can't beat that.

Everyone has their contribution to make, I reckon.

I enjoyed reading your letter to yourself - well done.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I think that your item makes a lot of sense. It is good to visualize yourself as what you want to achieve, having arrived there. I found this to be positive and inspiring.

*Noter* Don't forget in the future to include your word count as required by the rules. I have been guilty of that myself in the past so don't feel bad about it. It happens to all of us. It doesn't change the fact that you did some fine work here.

I admire you for your resilient attitude about life in general.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This part stays with me:

"I heard a psychologist say recently, that if you aren't at least a little embarrassed by where you were or who you were a year ago, then you haven't learned anything."

Somehow, I think it's even more true in such a difficult year. We all should be embarrassed to some extent, given what's transpired and how we've all fallen in line so easily with whatever was dictated from on high. That really struck a chord with me.

I wonder how we will all see things in a couple of years looking back. That is where the Dear Me writing can give you a timeline of how you felt about things and about writing in retrospect.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

It is tough to start out the year with worry about someone else. It is good to regroup and you did that in time to enter so that's positive and setting out some doable goals that are not too overwhelming seems like a very smart approach to me.

*Noteg*One thing to remember in future entries is to include your word count. I have forgotten that myself at times, so I know that's an easy one to overlook when we focus on the writing.

*Cool**Idea*

I admire you for your organizational skills. You analyze what is needed and pinpoint what needs to be done. Nice and concise and well without your ability to achieve, I'd say.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I like the focus on writing and reading. Starting small with organizing stuff and clutter sounds sensible to me, too. When you read, you want to analyze what works so you can use that in your writing. That makes a lot of sense. Reading and thinking can only lead to good writing so well done, there!

Starting on the last day of January makes more sense to me than starting on the first. You have had time to really think about things you want to accomplish. That sounds like a good thing to me.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about how everything has come together so that you determine it is the right time to write about your experiences in the past. Others, who might be effected, are now in a position to weather the storm, if there is one.

Focusing on a date certain is something that is good for setting goals.

*Notebl*In future entries, don't forget to include a word count. I know it's easy to do that because I've done it before.

*Cool**Idea*

My criteria for judging Dear Me letters is about what I find memorable and interesting. It may not agree with anyone else's judgment. That is once we get beyond the technical requirements though, like including word count.

No expert on keeping my own New Year's Resolutions, I didn't even try to think of any this year. So, I'm also looking to be inspired with my own plans for the year. Focusing on a date seems like a good way to go - a good motivating factor.

I admire you for all the thought and effort you put into this and in considering the timing of your plans.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

It is good to face the past in order to move forward and to consider others when one thinks about timing. Many will identify, no doubt, and be inspired on their own journeys. That is always a good thing.

Good work plan!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about all that you have faced and overcome in the past. It is good to review and to know that you have the resiliency to move forward because of what you have endured.

*Noter*At the beginning of this, you are supposed to start with "Dear Me" instead of "Dear Girl in the Mirror." That meant disqualification, so be sure in the future that you read the rules closely.

Don't feel bad, though, or alone. In the past I said "Dear HOOves" instead of "Dear Me" in my entry and was disqualified.

I still wanted to send you a review and let you know why that happened.

*Cow* You posted before me in I Write in 2020. It is my pleasure to read and review your letter written for Bard's Hall.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* This is a very funny letter about a horrific year. I enjoyed learning about chocolate and its many uses. I had no clue before this about the zombies.

California is like a brother. Annoying but lovable.

I enjoyed all the humorous observations about life in Las Vegas.

*Thumbsup* That thing about the neighbor from hades really cracked me up. Where does he get off. Wow. Talk about making a bad year worse.

Eeewww. I hope he had the decency to be embarassed.

Sometimes, I laugh behind the mask at things too. I'm not sure anyone can tell or even that anyone else gets it. It's nice to know that I'm not alone.

I enjoyed reading this very much - it lightened my mood considerably today. Well done!

What brought Hoovsie/tHiNg meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow*You posted your wonderful poem in I Write in 2020. I am participating in that activity, as well, and it is my pleasure to read and review your work.

What does hoovsie/tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea*I thought about how when one focuses on gratitude instead of the negative aspect of the situation this year, that there are many things to be thankful for. You emphasize having the time to do it. We all have the time to do it, if we make good use of that time.

What does hooves/tHing moo and applaud about while reading your item?

These two lines struck me particularly:

"Invite in gratitude and watch it bloom
Thank others for being kind..."

I think this is the key - to focus on how others feel and try to make their situations a little easier if we can. It is the generous spirit that will triumph over the many obstacles to thankfulness this holiday time.

Well done!

What brought tHiNg meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow*You posted before me in I Write in 2020. It is my pleasure to read and review your short story for Short Shots Contest.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I thought about how perceptions can change over time. What seemed a miracle becomes something of a curse according to the observation of the perceptive Sister Mary. The fullness of time somehow gives context to what we see and witness.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHing moo and applaud about while reading your item?

The happenings in the church were very dynamic and powerful. It seems as if the narrator is bursting in to save someone, but it turns out differently. Telling the story from the first person builds up the reader's anticipation and is a very effective device for switching to the climax.

Foreshadowing is also very good with the troubles as a child. Right there with the narrator, there is a sudden and very effective twist that relates back to the title.

Well done! Good luck in the contest!

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I thought about the photograph and the romance of it, the violence and the romance. I think your poetic words have captured the mood perfectly. It is like a dance that doesn't end well. It's an unusual twist because sometimes it is the man who destroys. There is an empowerment in the photo and in your words that are intertwined in a very interesting way.

What does tHing moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This was my favorite part:

"That as the moon rises
And twists itself through its cycles
Her powers grow
And theirs diminish"

I think you have done a wonderful job of conveying a sense of strength and domination that comes through the photograph.

Well done!

*Cow*You posted before I did in I Write in 2020. It is my pleasure to read and review your story.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I was inspired and heartened by this well told tale of dealing with the choices that have to be made when a cancer diagnosis is given. In a lot of ways, I do think it is harder on the loved ones who have to navigate the sometimes bleak alternatives. Sometimes people are quick to judge what other people should or should not do.

I think that it comes through that the characters here approach everything with a lot of caring and heart. Maybe he doesn't know how to express it all the time, but his wife knows this and understands what he means. That comes through very strongly.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHing moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I loved the notion of the Boobear and why it was given. Of course, it is to help them feel better and it does help.

Very moving story - moving and inspirational.

*Cow*You posted before me in the I Write in 2020 activity. As always, it is my pleasure to read and review your essay.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I thought about all the things we take for granted in nature, and otherwise too.. Natural beauty and changes really do, as you assert, soothe the spirit in times of trouble. It has to be a conscious effort to focus and you bring plenty of examples to bear.

We notice it when walking our dog, now. We notice how the seasons have changed and how she seems to notice it in what she focuses on. Her senses are much sharper than ours, although we are all aging. The air smells different almost the first day of fall. She noticed it and so did we this year. I think it's because our senses are more in tune without immediate environments than usual. We're not all rushing around this year.

What does tHing moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I enjoyed thinking about water and its importance. I even took a long drink of it whilst I was reading your essay. It is reassuring now to wash our hands often, something taken for granted only a short time ago. Focusing on the changes outside of ourselves and the characteristics (like the color green) is a reminder that to focus outside ourselves can be the greatest peace of all.

All around us there is beauty if we only stop to see it. I think it's why my dog gets excited for her walk every day at 14 years of age. Something new in the air every day!

Well done!
