Review of Candy Love Prt 2  
Review by Alisha P.

Rated: E | (4.5)
Natty --

I love how you use such sweet details to write the letter. I feel the romance as the writer of the letter saves her/his lover's life and promises to stay by their side. When I read this, I hear the song, Forever by Axel Johansson  , in my head. The letter also makes me hungry as I keep reading about such delicious sweets. There are some mistakes you should consider editing.


You should get rid of the "me" before the word "Met" in the first sentence. You mean "spewed" instead of "sprewed"? There should be a comma after the word "day" in the sentence "Since that day I will never leave your side, I am bound to you and our adventures." In the sentence, "I swang wildly knocking them down deep into the sugar pit." there should be a comma after the word "wildly". "your self" is best read as "yourself". In the sentence, "I only had a lollypop stick for a weapon but nothing will ever make me lose you my pear drop." there should be a comma before the word "but". In the sentence, "When we reached the bottom you flung yourself into my arms and we lovingly kissed under the laffy taffy trees." there should be a comma after the word "bottom and a comma before the word "and". In the sentence, "My sweet little dolly mix." The period should be a comma. In the sentence, "As the sun sets and I cuddle with you I know what real love feels like." There should be a comma after the word "you".

These are my suggestions upon edits. You can use or ignore any of them if you'd like.

Thank you for letting me review your lovely letter! *Smile*

Review of My Cup of Tea.

This sounds like a very delicious kind of tea. I'm not British, but I love tea. I like the way the tea brings you into a dream where you're somewhere far away and every cup is your every escape.

My Opinion: This is an interesting interactive. I chose to play Tatiana, who seems like a person who's always left behind. I could empathize with her as a person with a sister that doesn't care for her as it reminds me of a person I saw on Reddit who berated a cancer patient, called her ugly, and said they were going to take all her cancer donations. This interactive also reminded me of a poem called [#2231822] "Into the light as Ardex reminds me of a possible light to Tatiana's darkness. I loved this interactive, I hope there is more in the future *Smile* Keep Writing!

Please let me know if there's anything I could work on when it comes to writing reviews

Thank You!*Smile*


What I liked: I loved the imagery and the tone in this poem. I like the connection to life and love. I also like how the poem changes from each season, with words/lines that intrigue me.

What could improve: Please capitalize all "i"'s that represent yourself. Every "I'm"'s that starts the sentence should have a Captial I. There are more grammar issues as well.

In the 2nd paragraph, there should be a comma after the word "streaks".

In the 4th paragraph, you should Capitalize the "W' in the first we.

In the sentence, "you are the gloss." Capitalize the "Y".

In the paragraph of that sentence, put a comma after "1:20".

In the last paragraph, remove the comma in the word "it's".


Overall: I loved this poem. It interested me and I liked its rhythm. This poem kind of reminds me of memories and time. Those two things make my dreams and nightmares. Thank you for showing this poem to me and Keep writing! *Smile*

What I liked: I love that this poem is talking about a cute cat that warms the heart of many others that read this poem. My neighbor owns three cats and my grandma owns four cats. I see those cats every day so I can relate to this poem. Every time I read this, it makes me say "AWWW" and makes me want to cuddle with cats. Is Pop the name? Thank you for your story and Write More*Smile*!

What I *HeartP*: I liked how you've given the dog a voice that has an adorable and impatiently excited tone. I liked that I could be inside this dog's head. I can imagine him wagging his tail, barking in excitement, and jumping up with a lot of energy. I can also imagine his adorable happy face. This reminds me of my aunt's dogs. One of them is named Pugsley and he goes crazy over furniture and outdoors. One of them was named Sadey and he was good-natured, liked the outdoors, and was energetic. Thank you for your story, Keep Writing!

Review of STUPID  
Review by Alisha P.
Rated: E | (5.0)
Warning: I'm still a newbie when it comes to reviews, so I'm sorry if it's terrible

This review is not meant to be offensive and is only written to be supportive.
If you think it's offensive, tell me what I can improve on, and I'll try to learn from it.


My Opinion: Everyone makes mistakes as no one's perfect, and sometimes we can learn from our mistakes. Life is always unexpected. I hope someday things will turn up differently. I hope you have a Merry Christmas.

Sometimes I feel like Hulk too, but I think about other things to do when I'm in Hulk mood, like talking to a stress ball about my bad day, then squishing it, then saying sorry to it๐Ÿ˜.

Everyone's stupid at least once in their lifetime. You're not alone.*Smile*

Review of Christmas day  
Review by Alisha P.
Rated: E | (4.5)
Warning: I'm still a newbie when it comes to reviews, so I'm sorry if it's not perfect.

This review is not meant to be offensive and is only written to be supportive.
If you think it's offensive, tell me what I can improve on, and I'll try to learn from it.




What I liked: I love how this story starts, it gives me warm Christmasy feelings.


What could be improved: There are still some mistakes.

In the sentence, "It was the night before Christmas,Everyone was sound asleep no one to be heard."
The comma should be a period and there should be a comma before the word "no".

In the sentence, "But a jolly jingle woke many people up and they all looked outside their windows and see the jolly Christmas man flying through the sky in a sled with rain dears"
There should be a comma after the word "people" and before the word "and". The word "rain dears" is supposed to be spelled "reindeers" I loved the word "rain dears" though.

Also after each period, you must add a space before you start a new sentence.


Overall: I love this story especially in this time of season. This story reminds me of every Christmas I ever had and makes me know that even through these difficult times, Christmas will always be joyful.*Smile* Continue Writing!

Also, I don't know if this story is completed or not.

Review of The Tower  
Review by Alisha P.
Rated: E | (4.0)
Warning: I'm still a newbie when it comes to reviews, so I'm sorry if it's not perfect.

This review is not meant to be offensive and is only written to be supportive.
If you think it's offensive, tell me what I can improve on, and I'll try to learn from it.



What I liked: I liked the imagery used in this story on the tower and of the ice cream truck. I also liked the delight of the narrator as he sees the ice cream truck and the personification of the force of music pulling the narrator to ice cream.


What could be improved: Some grammar, nothing more.

In the sentence, "As I came over the hill I could see the tower on the horizon." There should be a comma after the word "hill".

In the sentence, "At first I was sure it meant I was in the wrong place and I quickly checked my calculations, but no. I was exactly where I was supposed to be, there just had never been a tower there before." There should be a comma after the word "First" and a comma before the word "and".

At the word "Exactly" There should be a comma at the beginning and end of this word.

There's a redundancy in this sentence. I suggest changing the sentence to "I was, exactly, where I was supposed to be. There just had never been a tower over there before."

In the sentence, "It was tall, and brilliant white against the deep blue of the sky beyond." The comma is not needed.

In the sentence, "Now I could feel the compulsion pulling me, as if I no longer had free will." The comma isn't needed.


Overall: It was a good story and made me wish I had some ice cream. This story gives me a warm, joyous feeling, but it also gives me a feeling that the jingly musix could be the narrator's next horror story. I hope that ice cream tastes good*Hungry*. Keep Writing!*Smile*

Review of Spinning Top  
Review by Alisha P.
Rated: E | (4.5)
Warning: I'm still a newbie when it comes to reviews, so don't expect perfection.

This review is not meant to be offensive and is only written to be supportive.
If you think it's offensive, tell me what I can improve on and I'll try to learn from it.

With that out of the way let's begin.



What I liked: I loved the imagery in this story, the flashback of the narrator that's connected to the spinning top, the personification of the great clock, and the anxious tone of the narrator as he tries to touch the top.


What could be improved: Some Grammar, nothing more.

In the sentence, "In this early hour the bright rays of morning rose far away across the ocean on another continent." There should be a comma after the word "hour".


In the sentence, "Hours seemed to pass before it abruptly slowed, teetered for a moment, fell and rolled to a stop, resting innocently on its side." There should be a comma before the word "and".


In the sentence, "After multiple attempts I gave up, and settled back down into the soft, warm bed sheets, longing for a sleep that would not come." The comma after the word "up" should actually be at the end of the word "attempts".


Overall: It's a brilliant story that intrigues me and makes me wonder who is the narrator and who's spinning the top? I liked how you used the spinning top from inception as the image as this story reminds me of one of my own dreams. This is one of my favorite stories I've come by far to read. I can't wait to read more of your stories as you continue writing.

I'm not good when it comes to reviews, but I love this story. I can feel the mood, and I can imagine being the narrator, not able to breathe, as I find my precious heart gone. I love the details used in this fictional story. My favorite sentence was, " A heart that did not want to beat, shackled with the chain of insurmountable grief." From this story, we know that the dead girl has brown eyes and her favorite color is purple, but I'd like to know more about her. Keep Writing!

A memory of two friends.
#2216601 by Miranda_EatingCookies
. This seems like a good memory. It reminds me of when I wake up early, but instead of just leaves, a tree dances with the wind. I can imagine the Teddy's sadness as it smells deliciousness, but can't move or eat. Is there a specific recipe for the cake, or is it a secret?

Review of Into the light  
Review by Alisha P.
Rated: E | (5.0)
To be honest, I'm not good when it comes to writing reviews, but I can't ignore this poem. When I read it, I imagined that the person is walking in the dark, with no good appeals, with no hope. Until one day, the sun shines, the person sees a smile, and they're given another chance. Then, I imagined the people who've been in the dark but gave up searching for the light. This poem makes me cry and wonder... What if it was the other way around?
