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.

Thing Signature Made For tHiNg!

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

*Thumbsupgreen* I am doing the I Write activity and you posted before me. It is my pleasure to read and think about your article about the attempt to repopulate the environment in certain areas with saber toothed cats.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea*I think that when man interferes with nature it is a precarious proposition because humans rarely think about all the consequences down the line of their actions. Blaming it on aliens sounds like what the scientific community does every time they do something that has long term, negative consequences.

Somehow, the people that make these blunders never bear the consequences of their actions personally it seems.

Alligators have survived a long time, but no one thinks they should be allowed all over the place. I wonder what happens when the reindeer populations suffers and they are then extinct.

I guess it creates a chain of events that can have dire results over time.

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

*Thumbsup*I don't know what the answer is, but it is good to think things through. If only scientists really did that before they acted, maybe mistakes wouldn't have such dire effects on life in general.

If I were a saber toothed cat, I would feel like I should be saved no matter what. I guess it all depends on your perspective, as is the case with most things. Maybe it is a matter of tunnel vision, rather than not caring.

Some scientists only see what they want to see at the time. Then they make adjustments later as an afterthought.

I thought your article was very interesting and I hope the reindeer everywhere can find a way to carry on.

Well done!

tHiNg pulling a wagon

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

*Thumbsupgreen*I am doing the I Write activity and you posted before me. It is always my pleasure to read and review your work.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

In this poem, you combine lines from the poetry of other writers.

You weave the words together to tell a tale about brighter days ahead when the world seems bleak. This is well suited to the time we live in right now as the world mourns a beloved Queen.

I wasn't sure about the title being The Remix, but it suits the hopeful finish very well.

It fit the mood of the day today and the lines seem meant to be together. It looks like it is seamless, but I imagine this took a lot of time and work reading through the poetry of others. I wonder if you set out to write about current events since it seems to fit the times so well.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I took the last line as being optimistic in the face of struggle and praying for a better day in the future. We hang on and we get there is the message I get and the one that permeates is to have faith in the positive outcome.

Nice work.

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

*Thumbsupgreen*I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your clever poem that incorporates song titles of the past. Also, you sent me a nice review recently so this is an opportunity for me to visit with you.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I remember and recognize most of these songs. I think you did a good job of maintaining your rhyme scheme and writing something that makes sense.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

*Thumbsup*This flows very nicely and you brought back some fond memories of songs from my youth.

I enjoyed reading this so well done! I don't think I could have written something that flowed so well and used so many song titles - I admire your memory and poetic talent!

*Thumbsupgreen*I was reading the entries in The Writer's Cramp today (even when I'm not judging, as was the case, sometimes I like to read the entries and sometimes (like now) even send a review) and saw that you won - Congratulations on your win! I thought your poem was outstanding!

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

This brought back those school days so long ago. I think you have captured the feel of it and you did an awesome job, using the emoticons! I like the way you punctuated the poem's individual lines also and how it all fit so perfectly.

*Cool**Idea*

My favorite stanza is the one about the frog! Poor little froggy! Oh, did that bring back memories!

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

*Thumbsupgreen*I clicked on the Read and Review option and it brought me to your fine poem about emerging victorious from the jaws of defeat.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I thought about that commercial that used to say something like the ecstasy of victory and the agony of defeat. I think one has to experience obstacles and hardships along the way to a great success. This is true in the physical sporting world and elsewhere, too.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

The message is to always keep trying because great things can be just around the corner. So, persistence is the key to ultimate victory and success.

Nice message to send and I see that all the truly great in sporting or other fields are those who hang in there and keep trying when things get to be the most difficult.

Good work!

*Thumbsupgreen*I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your clever and amusing short/ flash fiction story.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I think you did a fine job of incorporating the number, "22" in your story as the prompt required. Also, you made it quirky and funny as this odd person is definitely on the wrong track!

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

The gentle humor about the marbles beings lost is amusing. This seems like the sort of mishap that might lead into a longer adventure somewhere along the way. I could see it as the opening to a mystery that Sherlock Holmes might solve.

I think you set the scene well and engaged the reader with the plight of both characters. I enjoyed reading this!

Nice work!

Thing Signature Made For tHiNg!

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

*Thumbsupgreen* I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the page and it brought me to this wonderfully romantic poem! Somehow I missed it the year you wrote it, which was the year I had my back surgery.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

It made me remember when I was young and how Mr. HOOves and I were married close to Valentine's Day. You have effectively portrayed the excitement and what it is like to be young and in love.

Lots of romance and details about the family and evening set the scene very well! Youth is such a fleeting, precious time of life, but we never quite realize it fully while it happens.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

This was my favorite part:

"Stars are in the sky.
The young couple feel like
they are the only ones in love.
The magic of Valentines Day."

You have captured the magic and the feelings very well. It is so nice to close my eyes and remember.

Beautiful!

tHiNg pulling a wagon

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

I clicked on the Read and Review choice on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your thoughtful poem.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

The ultimate power is definitely to control the weather. That has more of an effect on a great number of people than controlling any other aspect of life. Doing it with a wave seems at first to be ideal. Then I thought about the power in the wrong hands and where that might lead.

It made me think about it and about how much I appreciate when the weather cooperates with living and doing things. We never know when obstacles will be thrown at us and really the weather is doing what it's always done.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

Of course, I like any mention of a "hand". The hand is in charge here, with the ability to change everything. I appreciate the notion that power corrupts and brings temptation along with ultimate downside of having one's wishes granted.

It seems like all the words were carefully selected, I didn't see anything that didn't fit with the message conveyed to me as a reader.

You might want to pick a third genre, besides "Fantasy" and "Dark" like Environment or something else so that when people look for things to read in those genres, searching they find your poem. It might lead to more reviews and readers is what I'm suggesting.

Fine work - I enjoyed reading this and thinking about it.

*Thumbsupgreen*I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your story. It seems like flash fiction. It is very short, but pack a lot of action and anticipation into the story.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

As I was reading, the suspense was building. I admit I didn't know where you were going with this. I won't give away the ending.

You might want to select more genres than just Action/Adventure, but ones that won't give away the ending. Maybe Drama would be a good choice, too? And maybe Experience or one of the others. It's good to select three as you will have people who search in genres for things to read.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I really liked the twist at the end. I won't say more than that, but well done - I thought this was very well written. It surprised me in a good way.

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

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen. It brought me to your fine poem and I decided to read and send a review.

Mowing the lawn is something I can definitely relate to. I did it for us and for my parents for many years and it definitely brings back a lot of memories.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

In the first stanza, you talk about appearance, the uniform you wear. The shoes being stiff and small really took me back in time. I would hop around in mine until they gave way because I cannot stand tight shoes.

Shades of brown and especially green sounds about right. I think that mine started out white and when they got green enough they were shifted to the mowing exercise. Sometimes I would accidentally get stains and a pair would be shifted sooner rather than later.

The second stanza involves attention to gathering and maintaining the equipment. I remember my Dad taking care of the maintenance part. The lawnmower I used was a self-propelled Toro so easier once it got rolling along.

The third stanza deals with the inevitable struggle at times to start the thing. Boy it felt good when it all kicked and the engine would purr.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

Your last stanza really captures the part of the process I loved the most, without spelling it out. That was being able to see where I'd been and see where I needed to go - measure progress.

It was boring, at times, and tiring, but rewarding too.

I think you have captured that very well here ~

You definitely took me back to my younger days, when life was a lot simpler somehow.

Well done!

Thing Signature Made For tHiNg!

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

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to a few things, but I kept trying until I found your wonderful essay comparing and contrasting three different versions of Cinderella.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

It made me want to watch the Lily James version again to see how it compares. You did a good job in drawing your comparisons and explaining the significance of things.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I'm with you in thinking that Disney has it right. You wrote this in 2005 and updated in 2016, but you say it was an essay for class.

Did you do any comparison to the Lily James version of the movie? I liked that a lot and I was trying to remember if that was similar to this Disney version or not.

I remember the step sisters being very lazy and Cinderella's father being very kind. He would never have left her in that situation if he had known what would happen.

Also, to me the mice friends make a big difference in how I see Cinderella because they are objective, on-the-scene observers of all the behaviors.

I enjoyed reading this and I think you did a fine job so you definitely deserved that "A" in the paper and for the class!

A beautiful image for tHiNg

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

*Thumbsupgreen*I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your fine poem, involving seeing the world through the eyes of a child.

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

There is a lot of wisdom in youth and in recognizing a view of the world to be cherished. Adults take so many things for granted, but finding these moments along the way is a priceless thing. It will be comforting and memorable to both parent and child further down the line.

This rhyming poem flows very well. I don't notice any flaws in word selection - all very effectively tell the tale. And most of the lines have 6-9 syllables, which contributes to the consistency of the momentum of the words.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I loved this part especially:

"As we stayed and watched it inch along
and talked of what all the fuzz had meant
I realized this special moment
was truly heaven sent"

It is remarkable to detail all the discoveries that make a little one happy. This is a nice reminder to treasure the moments we get along the journey because at another stage it seems to have gone by so quickly. The mother appears open to the realization that observing the world through a child's eyes can be both rewarding and comforting and there is a lesson to be learned if one is open to the experience.

Fine work!

Thing Signature Made For tHiNg!

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

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your intriguing short story featuring Queen Anne's time travel from the 1700's to the present day.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I like how you reveal the relationship with the father and sister through first person observation. An intervention seems like the only way fences might be mended.

I noticed this one paragraph, sort of in the middle, about 16 paragraphs or so down from the top. You have:

"n any event, my husband, whose other hobby is keeping me out of stores, wouldn’t dare turn stand in my way if I told I mentioned I was meeting my sister at the outlet mall...."

The word "turn" should be "try to" and "I told" should be removed. *Checkgr*

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I especially like the idea of time travel and divine intervention mixed together. What could be a better purpose for a visit? To help and guide seems like something that would give meaning to any life, even a royal one.

I enjoyed reading your story. Hope my suggestions about the minor edits are helpful. I like the voice you use and the wry humor that is laced throughout. Getting along with family is a pretty universal dilemma of the historical and modern world. In other words, it's timeless.

Nice work!

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your fine story.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I thought about all the bad behavior during the pandemic and the desire to get away, but being afraid to go. The great outdoors sounds pretty good in comparison.

This was pretty prescient. Written back in spring 2020, I'm not sure many thought the recurring lockdowns would last for so long and lead to some big changes along the way.

In hindsight a lot of the behaviors seem bizarre and even unbelievable. From the date, you even wrote this before the riots took hold.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I sort of suspected that telling someone about it (thus telling many since it was a reporter) would be the beginning of the end as some unwelcome company would inevitably join the narrator. You know how people play follow the leader sometimes with the Internet and the Newsmedia.

Well done - very intriguing tale, with a clever title. Mr. Rogers seems like a creature from the faraway past.

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your clever story!

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I thought about all the dumb things that I did when I was young and how I bet that there are things about our kids and grandkids that we will thankfully never know.

I saw this one typo in the 5th paragraph up from the end: "Her parents were going to be home in a few short hours and if she didn't have this place spotless by the time she got back, she might as well start looking into joining a convent...

The highlighted word "she" should be changed to "they" in this context.

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

This is so true to the age. The fact that she was thinking of attending this horrible gathering the following year (at another location that took less of a toll on her in a work sense) proves that no lesson had been learned. *Laugh*

Oh, the resilience of youth. This fills me with horror at my advanced age.

Well told tale!

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your short story.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

TO me, this was about being in a predicament where one is forced to lie to the self to have the strength to carry on.

The countdown part was chilling. It created an atmosphere of apprehension and foreboding. I wasn't sure if it was a chance to run or something else, maybe the perpetrator didn't want to carry through with it after all.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I liked the steady feeling throughout that the ending was somehow preordained. It felt like destiny took hold, but with a slight room for regret at not being able to change things or even fully understand the circumstances.

I enjoyed reading your story - nice work!

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

I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen and it brought me to your fine free verse poetry on the first day of August.

*Thumbsupgreen*

What does tHiNg think about while perusing your item?

I thought about how we all are made up of these experiences that become memories, enhanced by family descriptions and tale over the years. We all are the sum of many parts, I reckon, whether having traveled (as is the case here) or staying put.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I loved the part about the "still" protective dog, whose instinct was to remain quiet and prevent a treacherous fall. Having that weight on the back upon waking, one's first inclination might very well be to move.

I wonder if the Greyhound busses still run. It's been a long time since I thought of one and what it meant to travel back in the good old days before cell phones ruined the world.

Wonderfully memorable poetry, I'd say.

Well done!

I thought the title was appropriate. We all change as we age. I would like to think that there is a lot of wisdom that comes with it, but I see things that cause me to not be as confident as I once might have been on that score.

Also, I question more of what I am told, but I learn to do it quietly because not everyone gets to the same level of understanding at the same point in life.

*Cool**Idea*

What does tHiNg applaud about while reading your item?

I identified strongly with the caterpillar analogy. Then the analogy of being cauterized in the end. I guess we all get to that point sooner or later.

Also, enjoyed the reference to "wisdom of time". That begs the question whether it is the time or the experience that brings the wisdom part. Some of both, I would imagine. Once in a while things are gradual and sort of sneak up on one.

Fine, thought provoking work as always.

Well done!

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

*Cow*I am reading in your Alice in Wonderland Challenge Journal and sending you my thoughts.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I especially like the recurring themes of the color lavender and butterflies. It sounds like an awesome way to dress Alice as you design it for fashion and function.

*Cool**Idea*

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

I like how you emphasize that she is a young girl and should be able to move around comfortably. It sounds like jeans might be a practical solution to the fashion issue.

You have put a lot of creativity and thought into this and you paint a picture for the reader.

Well done!

*Cow*I am having fun reading the adventures in your Wonderland Journal! So, here I am again!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I thought about hos peaceful the colors of blue and lavender are. You picked the perfect name for the planet.

The talking caterpillar is a nice addition.

*Cool**Idea*

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

You are so right about letting humans know about it. They will only try to take over and ruin things. I think it's pretty much what humans do to everything that is lovely in nature. Best to keep it quiet.

Lovely addition! *Heartt*

}The Usual Suspect is not always Kevin Spacey!

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

*Cow*I am reading in your folder for the nice activity you are doing involving Alice in Wonderland.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

This shows a lot of imagination. I like how you describe the different scenes and how they relate and incorporate your own writing creations.

*Cool**Idea*

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

I smiled at the wolf and the wolves, the recurring theme of wolf being a positive force in your writing. Also, I liked when Diet Pepsi made an appearance. Jane Austen at the Barnes and Noble was comforting at the end like coming home.

This creativity and your descriptions are excellent. Well done!

Based on a television series on BBC/Netflix

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

*Cow*I meandered over to send a couple of reviews for your fine activity! I hope that you have fun with it and do well!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* These sound like great things to try! I love the idea of the Diet Pepsi providing the "thunder" very clever!

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

This made me hungry! Yum. Sounds like a summertime party!

Well done!

A Beautiful New Signature for HOOves

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

*Cow*You had posted something so I meandered over and looked around. This looks like a fun challenge and I am sure you will have a good time with it as you are off to a great start.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I like that this gets you to write and think about a work that you love (Alice in Wonderland) and thinking about comparisons and how things are done and how you have enjoyed reading and imagining based on this work.

It sure has a lot of interesting characters.

*Cool**Idea*

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

I liked how you say here that you identify with Alice. I think that will definitely stand you well as you work on the prompts given. The Woodhouse challenge was always fun and I bet this one will be too.

Just enjoy yourself and have a lovely writing adventure!

*Heartp*

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

*Cow* I posted in the I Write Second Decade forum after you. It is my pleasure to read and review your work.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I know people who dread autumn. It is my favorite time of year.

*Cool**Idea*

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

I like how you switched it up and made autumn seem like a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. That is often reserved for spring following winter. I think autumn can be a renewal time too and a time to replenish strength to face the winter.

Lovely poem - I enjoyed reading it very much! I am looking forward to that season as well! Not a bad summer though so far, I have to moo.

Well done!

*Cow*You posted before me in the I Write 2nd Decade forum. It is my pleasure to read and review your poem!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

You can't go wrong with a bear in a stylish sweater. I thought this was delightful. This morning I was treated to a video of Queen Elizabeth II and Paddington Bear. With bears, the cuteness is part of the package.

I liked the suggestion of knitted socks, too. This is a bear who thinks ahead.

*Cool**Idea*

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

I especially liked how this flowed and that the bear was named, "Mary". That made me smile as it was my mother's name. This made me smile all the way through and I think you did a fine job with the rhyme.

Koalas are adorable, non-threatening bears.

This was my favorite part:

"Then she would have to wear glasses,👓
Have a daily dose of molasses.
She disliked the taste
Would screw up her face
Leave her tree and go roll in the grasses."

Wonderfully imaginative - well done for children of ALL ages!
