Hi Ash
I liked your poem and enjoyed reading it. I'm not a grammatical guru so take this as it is intended - on line 5 never losing that hope - I believe you can drop THAT and it would still read the same. On line wan't should be wasn't.
good job keep writing

I like you work and the idea about a dream. When you referenced Mr. Allen's A dream is a vision, you might have stated Mr. Allen wrote "A dream is a vision - and the rest of the paragraph in parentheses followed by the book title. I'm new at reviewing and this is only my opinion. I don't know for sure if I'm grammatically correct. You did a good job and got your point across

Cute scenario, I've climbed the emotional ladder once or twice in my life and was stopped midway by something good that happened. I enjoyed your writing, keep up the good work.

Interesting short story, makes you stop and think. Life is different for so many people and we never stop to think what other people deal with. Secret communications - maybe pig latin in sign language, that would be different.
I enjoyed the post - have a good day

Hi Berryhill
What a moving peace, you brought tears to my eyes and a lump to throat. This was well written and very moving. The understanding and love that you poured into this peace was wonderful. I've loved and lost my father who I respected and admired and your speech brought my thoughts back to him. God Bless

Hi WakeUpAndLive
I enjoyed your story, it was a fast read and it flowed beautifully. Being a dog owner myself I can relate to all that you had to say. Congratulations on getting third place in the contest. I will look forward to reading more of your stories

Review of Moving on  
Review by lucky dog
Rated: ASR | (3.0)
Hi Hannah
I just finished reading your story and overall I liked it and thought it moved well. At first I wasn't sure if it was Biographical or a story and I went looking for the genres to see how you had listed it. I think you put in some things that didn't fit with what you presented. You said Kenzi was in middle school but in one paragraph you said she did theater 5 days a week, also in the same paragraph you said Chris worked for a dairy and gone but also that he worked around here. A little later you have Kenzi bringing the car around and your main character who is 17 driving. There were a few conflicts like I mentioned but you ability to move the story along was good.

Hi Janetd
Good job, for your first attempt. I believe the story flowed well and the suspense was understandable. I liked how you used Milo as a comforter to a scared young women. You might have added the reason she hated storms, giving it a little more substance. Keep up the good work

Hi ESB1944 - I enjoyed your story and thought it flowed well. I would suggest that you add a space after each paragraph. I think that just helps the overall look of your story. Keep up the good work

Hi LBV
Well done - I enjoyed your piece and was surprised by the last paragraph. My mind was trying to figure out the situation and I never would have gone where you took me. The only error I can see was in the third paragraph, last sentence "I haven't done it a long" (I think should be) "I haven't done in a long. Other than that I think you did a great job! Keep up the good work.

Good Morning Harry
I enjoyed your story about the ups and down of a rafting experience that parallels growing old. I'm there and I felt the essence of what you were writing about. With life comes adventure and twists and turns that have to be navigated. Your story was easy to read and I was pleasantly surprised with the concluding paragraph. I'm new to reviewing and I'm a high school grad so I don't have any suggestions or pointers with punctuation.
Happy dog

Good Morning Kanish
I enjoyed your story, it was cute and right on. I think we have all felt rejection at on time or another, some mild other harsh. The idea of your story coming to fruition and you are able to be the perpetrator is good and unexpected. The idea of revenge can be sweet, but not healthy. Keep up the good work

I enjoyed your piece, I'm pushing 70 so I understand more and more about what you are writing about. Congratulations on reaching 85. The sentence "Youth ran away. Just let it be", is how I feel. You touched me and brought a smile to face. Keep up the good work

Hi Jenny - I saw your request in reviews and I like your title. I have little knowledge of poetry and so I can not make any comments or suggestions that would be constructive. I like your poem, but I had to read the poem about 5 times before your meaning started coming through to me. (I'm slow). You did a good job - keep writing

Review of The Abyss

Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
Hi Brent - I enjoyed your poem, and I can relate to the abyss since I've seen it. I don't know a lot about poems but I feel like yours flowed properly. Your title caught my eye and your explanation was cryptic since I did not know who Nietzsche was and I had to look him up. You did a good job

Review of There is Rain

Hi Lindsay -I enjoyed your poem. I'm new to the art of reviewing so bear with me. I would look at the listing of your items. falls from the sky - from the hose - exist in a drought, streams down your cheeks, floods your insides and the rain that demands. Since I've never written any poems - I shouldn't be reviewing but I think it might flow in a better line. Please take this as intended, from my point of view - I did like what you wrote.

I like your story, and enjoyed reading it. I have experienced a lonely bike ride myself. I think it flowed well and you took your reader on the bike ride with you. I'm don't do well with punctuation but I did notice on the last paragraph where you quoted Paul "to be thankful in all things." Nice Job!

Review of Sam's War  
Review by lucky dog
Rated: 13+ | (3.0)
I enjoyed your peace, but I had to read it several times understand the first 5 paragraphs. I think if you had used combining instead of muddling would have made the sentence flow better. Once you began going with the VA Doctor and your experiences I could feel the narrative. I look forward to seeing more of your writing.
