Review of WDC Photo Contest  
Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Hello again, Abby Gayle! I'm here for your last review as part of your winning my package over at The Four Seasons Auction.

I really like the concept of this contest. I love taking photos and have a good phone with a really good camera now so I'm gonna have to enter this sometime. This contest as far as I know is unique to WdC and that's really awesome.

Keep shining!

Hi again, Abby. I came again to read some more of your work as part of you winning my package over at The Four Seasons Auction.

Short disclaimer: I am in no way a professional writer and everything I say should be taken with a grain of salt. Remember that you know your story better than I do.

This was a really interesting story. Very creative. I'm not really into sci-fi, but I did like this story and I kept wondering what was gonna happen next and if Natalie would figure it out. I love the friendship you portrayed, especially with Natalie and Ranada. And you had believable dialogue and showed off your scientific smarts.

Thank you for sharing and keep writing! You have a wonderful talent.

Hello Abby Gayle, this is another review as part of winning my auction package over at The Four Seasons Auction.

Please, remember that I am not a professional writer by any means and do not know your work like you do. Take what I say with a grain of salt.

So, when I started reading this story I immediately could tell that it was well written. First person narrative is not my favorite to read, but you made it quite easy and enjoyable since it flowed smoothly. I knew it was a sci-fi story and I have to say I really liked the ending. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Keep writing and remember the world is your canvas, create! *Smile*

Review of I Have Questions.  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hiya Norb! I'm here with another review as part of the auction package you won over at "Chinese New Year Celebration!

So, I see this poem of yours as someone who is questioning life and their purpose in it. I understand. I think most people if not everyone will understand this. We all go through those moments where we feel like life is completely against us. It's like we're the unlucky ticket in the lottery. We question life, the people in it, and ourselves. How can we not when nothing makes sense?

I really enjoyed this piece of yours and though this is the last review I owe you, I've really enjoyed reading many things in your port. You're such a talented writer. I'm a fan!

Keep writing and have a great day! πŸ™‚

The world is your canvas, Create!

Review of Enablist

Hello again, Norb. It's me, Hanna (duh, you can clearly see that. *Facepalm*)
Anyways, I'm here again to review as part of the auction package you won over at "Chinese New Year Celebration*Bigsmile*

This was so beautiful, but so heartbreaking. I understand that the guy in it is tired of enabling his girlfriend who feels like she's not enough, and it appears that she has a self harm problem. I'm curious as to what it means though. As I've said before I'm not a poet, and some of what you say in your poetry goes right over my head, but it's so beautiful that I want to keep reading!

Thank you for sharing and have a great day! πŸ™‚

Review of Last First Time  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hiya Norb, I'm here to review this piece as part of the auction package you won over at "Chinese New Year Celebration. πŸ™‚

I chose this piece because it's romance, and as you can guess I do enjoy reading romances, haha.

Awww, I really like this piece of yours. It's got all the awkwardness of being intimate with someone for the first time, but also has that vibe/feeling that they already know each other in that sense. I get the feeling that it is about a couple who had a long history with one another, went through a terrible breakup, and are now taking a chance on each other again. I really liked it. Especially the awkwardness because unlike the perfect first time that a lot of movies portray, the first time is awkward usually from what I hear and I'm sure it's very nerve-wracking. And so to read this poem about these people... I feel like they're just so in love that maybe it feels brand new, but yet vintage at the same time. I hope that makes sense.

Thank you for sharing it with us. I really enjoyed it. You're a talented writer. Keep at it!

The world is your canvas, create and have a good day!

Review of Creepy Christmas?  
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
Hi, J. Robert! I stumbled upon this and thought that I would review it.

Wow... I never knew about these creepy things about Christmas. I mean, I had watched an episode of American Dad once that mentioned Krampus, but had no idea it was a folklore tale. And, just the other day, I was listening to "Baby, it's cold outside" (never before having known what the lyrics were saying) and while it is still a favorite of mine, I was shocked at the sexual aggression of the song.

Thank you for sharing these creepy Christmas things with us. It was quite interesting to read.

An early Merry Christmas to you too!

Hello, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing this for "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group

Disclaimer: I'm still new to poetry so I won't be commenting on the form and please take what I say with a grain of salt.

Overall Impression: This is such a beautiful poem/letter from an unborn baby to their mother. It's touching and almost made me cry... It's perfect, I don't think there's anything that needs to be changed. And I think what makes this poem/letter even more special is that you wrote it for your firstborn... you put your heart into this piece and it's incredible.

Thank you so much for sharing, keep writing, and have a good day. *Smile*

*Flowerp* Hello again, Dragon. As you know, I'm Hanna, and I will be reviewing this image for "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group. *Flowerp*

What I love about this: I absolutely love this image, and what it represents. It's so profound, and yet so simple. The artwork is beautiful. You did an incredible job! I also loved how you wrote a couple of paragraphs that talk about what this image means to you, and how it came about. You are so honest and open in this, and it's... enlightening. I think that's the word I was looking for. You are completely right when you said Within all the dark, there's always light. And in all the light, there's always dark. But you can choose how to react.

You're very talented, not only a writer, but an artist as well. I look forward to seeing more images you create in the future, as well as reading more of your work.

Keep dancing, writing, drawing, creating, and don't let the haters get you down. *Smile*

Hello, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing this piece. *Smile*

Short disclaimer, I'm new to poetry so please take what I say with a grain of salt.

This poem is one of those that makes you think in my opinion. Because while I was reading it, I was thinking about life, and the comparisons that could be made to this. The way you talk about how some people go slow, but some others drive at a quicker pace made me think about how some people are in a rush and others stop to just enjoy the scenery. There are several comparisons to be made and I really liked this piece.

Thank you for sharing, keep writing, and have a good day!

Hello, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing this piece. *Smile*

Before I begin my review, I just want you to know that I'm new to poetry so take what I say with a grain of salt.

What drew me in to read this piece was the title and description. I would say you picked the perfect title for this because it's about an angel in your dreams. It was so beautifully written too and had very vivid descriptions. I especially loved the part

"The world around her seems to come alive
While inside, I am fighting to survive"


This was my favorite part because there something about seeing the world around her come alive, when the person is just trying to survive. Like, with her the person can see there still is beauty in the world.

Thanks for sharing, keep writing, and have a good day!

Review of Friendship  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hi, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing your poem.

Now, before I begin you should know that I'm still pretty new to poetry and so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I enjoyed reading this poem so much. Your words are so simple, yet so meaningful as well. In only a few lines you were able to paint this beautiful picture of how much your best friend means to you. You have written a short poem about how much you love your best friend, and I've read many poems about friendship, but yours is in my top five.

My favorite part is : When we're apart we're just 2 halves.
It was hard to pick a favorite part because I loved it so much, but I finally chose this because out of everything it basically summed up your entire friendship.

Thank you so much for sharing this, keep writing, and have a great day!

Review of A Grandma's Heart  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hello Donna, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing this piece that you've written.

Wow, to read this was amazing. I mean, I'm only 20 and the only births I've ever experienced were my two nieces, and to be honest I don't remember much since I was a little girl then. All I remember really is how happy and excited everyone was. This was so beautifully written and definitely captured a very special moment in your life, and expressed how immensely much you love your granddaughter. Thank you so much for sharing it and keep writing.

I wish you, your son, Jeff, his wife, and Karaleen (what a beautiful name) all the best and congratulations on becoming a grandma. *Smile*

Have a lovely day!

Review of Free Women

Wow, Cheyanna, this I feel, speaks for so many women. I was very blessed to have a family that told me I could be whatever I wanted, but I know others are not so lucky. This is something that I used to take for granted, but no longer do. Just remember, you can do anything you want. Dream it, believe it, achieve it! *Smile*

Hello Jade, it's me, Hanna, and I will be reviewing this piece. Congratulations on being part of the NAG Showcase this month! *Smile*

So the reason I chose to review this piece was because of your description and title. I was hoping it would be a comedy. Some parts were funny, but there were also some other parts that weren't. Like when Fork is talking about the bath and the temperature. I could see that he had a fear of it. You also showed that he had a strong love for his family and friends. I've never written "personIfication"... I think that's the word? But, from what I understand is you give an inanimate object feelings like a human. If so, you completely nailed it. Your story reminded me of Beauty and the Beast, specifically, Chip.

I do have a couple of suggestions and I hope you find them helpful. Please know that I'm not a professional or anything though, so edit or don't edit as you see fit.

1. When Fork is complaining to his dad about taking a bath you wrote at the end, "why can she just wash us by hand?"
I think it's supposed to be "why can't she just wash us by hand?"

2. You forgot the quotation mark before "why" in the same sentence.

3. You wrote "Oh Fork. You know she's an all time homeschooling mom of three kid, aged thirteen."
I think maybe if you changed it to something like, "Oh Fork, you know that she's a full time homeschooling mom of three kids who are thirteen."

4. I just have a question, are the kids triplets? I don't see how they could all be thirteen unless they are.

5. You wrote, "how do humans bath in this temperature?" I think it's supposed to be "bathe", but I could be wrong.

Overall, I think this is a great piece that just needs a little fine tuning.

Thank you for sharing, keep writing, and have a great day!

Hello Sophy, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing this piece as part of the Power Reviewers Disney Raid. *Smile*

So, I'm going to *try* to be frank because, I feel bad telling you this is terrible, but... This was terrible in the best ways! You know that a writer is talented when they can write bad on purpose and boy, are you talented!

My favorite part was the end when you said, "children do a riverdance of innocence as Walt rolls in his cryonic suspended grave." This was my favorite part because it was just so terrible to say and in my household it'd probably be seen as... not scandalous, but.... *Headbang* I can't think of the word. But I think you know where I'm going with this, at least I hope so.

I feel terrible giving you a 1 star rating, but if that's what you want... that coveted one star rating, here ya go!

Hello, Mrs. B. Ray, I'm Hanna and I'm here to review this piece as part of the Power Reviewers Disney Raid. *Smile*

I was immediately drawn to this piece because of the title and the description you gave. "A whole new world" is one of my favorite Disney songs to sing-a-long to...

*Music1* Now I'm in a whole new world with you. *Music1*

Now onto your actual poem... I think you captured this Disney moment perfectly! My favorite line is
"An endless diamond sky. Amidst a blanket of blue." This was my favorite because it sets the mood of romance.

I noted that you said it wasn't yet finished. I can't wait to read it when it is.

Thank you for sharing it, keep writing, and have a sparkly day! *rainbow**Rainbowr*

Review of (un)Fitness  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hello Ken, I'm back to give you another review.

*Flowerp* Disclaimer :
Please know everything I say is meant to help you as one writer to another and you ultimately know what is best for your work.

*Flowerb* Hooks :
The description, title, and the fact that this was located in the "humor" folder is the reason why I chose to read this piece. I was in the mood for some of your wonderful humor.

*Flowerp* Overall Impression : this was so funny! Poor guy, you would think his wife would love him as is, but I suppose if she's staying in shape she expects him to do the same.

*Flowerb* My Favorite Part :
I discovered the secret of fitness
and it’s something that I should have known.
Only make love in the dark …
and always shower alone.
This was my favorite part because... well does he really think his wife isn't going to notice he isn't getting in shape? *Laugh*

Thank you for sharing more of your work. I look forward to reading more of it. Keep writing and have a glittery day! *Smile*

Review of The Honey Bucket  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hello again Ken, hopefully you aren't sick of my reviews yet because after this one I still owe you one more. *Bigsmile*.

*Flowerv* Disclaimer : Please know everything I say is meant to help you as one writer to another and you ultimately know what is best for your work.

*Flowery* Hooks : The reason I chose to read this piece of yours is partly because of the title. I'll explain quickly, I once read that "honey wagon" is a term often used on a film set... when asked about what it meant an acting professional replied with "it's a very sexy term for bathroom " (turns out a lot of times they don't have doors, but that's another story! *Laugh* The other reason I chose to read this piece was because of the description. I was excited to read about something that really happened to you.

*Flowerv* Overall Impression :This was such a wonderful story in the funniest of ways! I can't believe this actually happened to you!! *Rolling* Ahh, the crazy stories we hold so dear and even though they usually are quite embarrassing (like this one) they are the ones to never cease bringing a smile to our faces.

*Flowery*My Favorite Part : This was the trickiest part because it was all so good, but I think this was my favorite part... It may be a clichΓ© - β€œlook before you leap”
but it’s one I now recite even in my sleep.
This was my favorite part because my mama taught me to "always look before I leap". This is a really important thing to remember because it can keep us from making mistakes.... mistakes that are way worse than falling in a "honey bucket".


Thank you for sharing such a funny story from your life! I enjoyed every second of reading it and can't wait to read more! Keep writing and have a glittery day! *Smile*

Howdy Ken, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing your song. *Laugh* I'm from Texas and we say "howdy" sometimes!

*Flowerb* Disclaimer : Please know everything I say is meant to help you as one writer to another and you ultimately know what is best for your work.

*Flowerp* Hooks :
What hooked me about this song is it sounds like something I would hear on The Best in Country (which is my favorite radio station) and the title of the song was attention grabbing!

*Flowerb* Overall Impression : This song is so good that it sounds like an actual song (if that makes sense). The words flow smoothly together and when I'm reading it it's almost like I can hear an acoustic guitar playing in the background.

*Flowerp* My Favorite Part : Has to be the chorus....
I don’t have anything against you,
I just wish we’d never met.
It’s not that you’re hard to remember,
it’s just you’re easy to forget.
I really like how this part flows.

*Flowerb* Side Note : I wasn't sure who she was talking to though... a friend who wanted to be more than "just friends " or someone she actually loved at one point. Overall though great job!

I enjoyed reading this, thank you for sharing it. You are very talented and I look forward to reading more. Keep writing and have a glittery day! *Smile*

Hi Ken, I'm Hanna and I will be reviewing this piece because you won in the "Chinese New Year Celebration (did I have to put that?) and I'm excited to read more of your wonderful work. *Smile*

*Flowerv* Disclaimer :
Please know that everything I say is meant to help you from one writer to another and you ultimately know what is best for your work.

*Flowerp* Hooks : If I'm being honest one of the hooks was the title because it reminded me of a song I heard just the other day by the same name. *Laugh*

*FlowerV* Overall Impression : This was a funny piece about a wife and a husband at a dinner party.

*Flowerp* My favorite part : This was a little tricky to choose, but I ultimately decided on It was a fancy dinner as I recall. "No, it was a movie at the Mall,"
she whispered to me with a warning hiss.
This was my favorite part because it's kinda where it all starts before he realizes they aren't remembering the same date. So much for wedded bliss! *Laugh*


Thank you for sharing your work with me and I'll be back to read more. Keep writing and have a glittery day! *Smile*

Hiya Izzy, I'm back to review another story in this heartwarming series.

Disclaimer: Please know everything I say is meant to help you from one writer to another. You are the creator of this wonderful masterpiece and therefore know what is best for it.

Hooks: I was excited to read this the moment I found out it is the sequel to "One Life, One Love" and really like the title you've chosen for this piece.

Overall Impression: Niklas is such a great big brother to baby Izzy and the love that surrounds this sweet, very special little girl is apparent throughout.

My Favorite Part:
But he knew he was going to protect her in every way that he could. This is my favorite part because this shows how absolutely special Izzy is to Niklas.

Final Thoughts: you have such an incredible talent and I can't wait to read more of your work!

Keep Writing and Have a Great Night!

Hello Izzy, I'm so sorry for the delay in this review, but my phone's keyboard had been acting up and then some other stuff came up. So now onto the review...

Disclaimer: Please know everything I say is meant to help you as one writer to another and you ultimately know what is best for your work.

Hooks: The title and description definitely grabbed my attention. I think you have chosen the perfect title for this piece.

Overall Impression: This was such a heartwarming story about family. I especially enjoyed the bond of Niklas and Izzy. It was so sweet and pure.

My Favorite Part: This was so hard to pick a favorite part because I felt the story was just riveting. I enjoyed every second of reading it.
Ultimately I chose this part

"Izzy,” he whispered, but felt a jolt of surprise when she opened her eyes. They were a beautiful crystal blue…. same as his mom’s.

This was my favorite part because I see this as the glimpse of the immense love Niklas has for his baby sister.

Final Thoughts: You are such a talented writer who has a way with her words. I'm wondering if this is Non-fiction? And yes, I would love to read more of your work. Especially about Niklas and Izzy.

Keep Writing and Have a great day! *Smile*
