As a lover of poetry, and short stories and not a professional reviewer, I hope you take my personal opinions in the manner that they are given, my goal is to be encouraging and give you something that will help you grow as a writer.

Is the title suitable to the poem/story? It does indeed.

Can it be read out loud? Yes, it does read easily out loud.

Do the lines and stanzas (paragraphs) build upon each other? Yes, the story flows smoothly.

Does the story have an introduction, a middle and a conclusion with a suitable climax. Yes, it does.

How did your piece make me feel? A feeling of immense sadness. I connected with the loss. I lost a baby at four months. The loss never fades.

What was my favorite part? The crazy cat lady made me chuckle. Vic calls me that all the time. I love my fur babies.

What would I change?" Nightmares entered her mind and the next sentence." This sentence sounds abrupt and like author intrusion. I suggest... Nightmares of a little boy, a cat, and an old woman in a lovely red-tiled house with white plastered walls and a green grape in the backyard disrupted her sleep.

Was it well thought out and well written?
You did an excellent job with the prompt, Petra. The story was engaging and held my interest throughout.

I've sent you a word document with your edits.

I realize English is not your first language and English with all its contractions and similar word usage can be very confusing. That's why I did it in a word document to help you.

Your story was interesting and reflected a the fear each of us has the first time traveling very well.

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”—Enid Bagnold

Hi Dark Lady

My name is Lyn and I am doing a review as a judge for WDC's Dear Me contest

As a writer, I know what it feels like to be reviewed! Please take what you feel is helpful and disregard the rest. Only YOU know what is right for your writing!

Title: Dear Me


First Impression: I'm saddened to hear 2019 wasn't a good year for you either. I can relate myself. My grandson died in a dirt bike accident. I hope 2020 is better for both of us. Writing is very helpful, I hope you continue to write.

What needs your attention: I didn't note any changes needed.

Favorite Parts:" Keep in mind family means more than money." That is indeed a very wise reminder. I would give anything to have one more hour with my grandson. They will remember the things you did together more than anything you bought them whether it is doing crafts, or making cookies or even playing endless board games.

Overall Impression: It looks like you have given a lot of thought to your entry and what you see is possible for this year. I wish you much success in 2020.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

As a writer, I know what it feels like to be reviewed! Please take what you feel is helpful and disregard the rest. Only YOU know what is right for your writing!

Title: Dear Me


First Impression: I agree reading the rules does make contests much easier and less stressful. It's good to see you here, my friend.

What needs your attention: I didn't note any needed changes. The letter flowed smoothly. Thank you for the larger font size. It makes it much easier for me to read not being able to put my computer on my lap.

Favorite Parts: I like your avoidance tactics. I was lucky too have missed everything. But unfortunately I've missed many things since my grandson passed or maybe in this instance it was a blessing instead.

Overall Impression: I agree with you writing and entering contests that bring you joy is very important. I really thought I was back on track and then life intervened again. I wish you much success in 2020. *Heart*

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

u
Favorite Parts: I love traveling and the locations you discussed sound awesome. I hope you consider a travel blog, especially on tumblr or flicker. Many bloggers would enjoy reading about the locations.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

Hi Bluejay

My name is Lyn and I am doing a review as a judge for WDC's Dear Me contest

As a writer, I know what it feels like to be reviewed! Please take what you feel is helpful and disregard the rest. Only YOU know what is right for your writing!

Title: Dear Me


First Impression: Four goals are very reasonable.

What needs your attention: I didn't note anything that distracted me while reading your entry.

Favorite Parts: Reading real books is an awesome goal. I'm working on that myself. My goal is 25 books this year. I've read 4 so far, I tend to do better during the winter than I do the rest of the year. I found reading early in the morning with my first coffee of the day to be the most successful use of time. What I do suggest is blocking a specific time for reading.

Overall Impression: I wish you much success with your writing and reading goals.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

Title: Dear Me


First Impression: I'm sorry about the job loss. Yes, it is difficult to job hunt over the holiday season. I hope this finds you happily employed again.

As a writer, I know what it feels like to be reviewed! Please take what you feel is helpful and disregard the rest. Only YOU know what is right for your writing!

Title: Dear Me


First Impression: Yes, it is indeed another decade. My sixth one since my birth. I agree they do tend to blur.

What needs your attention: I didn't note any punctuation that distracted me as I read.

Favorite Parts: " Career, winding down, retire at 80? Don't drop dead on our clients. Work smart." I felt this line jumped out the most to me. I raised my eyebrows at retiring at 80, but then I chuckled when I came to don't drop dead on our clients. Yeah, dropping dead with a client isn't good for business.

Overall Impression: Your different approach to the dear me contest I felt needed more to be a top ten consideration.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

My name is Lyn and I am doing a review as a judge for WDC's Dear Me contest

As a writer, I know what it feels like to be reviewed! Please take what you feel is helpful and disregard the rest. Only YOU know what is right for your writing!

Title: Dear Me


First Impression: I really enjoyed the suspense opening your dear me letter. It was very engaging.

What needs your attention: I didn't notice punctuation or grammar issues. Nor did I actually look because I was enjoying reading your letter.

Favorite Parts: I was hooked with the stormy night and the fear of being home alone but once the doorbell camera showed there was nothing to fear at least not from a stranger. But it might have been easier after all to have a stranger because the questions the inner self asked weren't easy to answer.

Overall Impression: I found the letter enjoyable and the game plan was well thought out with reasonable goals if the author really wants it. I'm looking forward to seeing next years dear me entry, Debbie.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

Favorite Parts: I am a three time cancer survivor and I can relate to what you said about the value of your family's love and your faith. Both are amazing. I know reading the entries in Love Shouldn't Hurt it always amazes me how much a human can overcome. Together, we're a force to be reckoned with.

Overall Impression: You've shared very personal experiences and how your faith helped you. This can be very helpful to others. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”—Enid Bagnold

Title: Dear Me (January 2020)


First Impression: Wow, you have a lot of writing goals set for yourself. I felt tired just reading them.

What needs your attention: I didn't note any punctuation or grammar issues.

Favorite Parts: Journaling every day for me helps me clear the cobwebs. Sometimes, I talk over what has happened, other times I doodle or make to do lists.Do you use your journal for clearing the cobwebs or is yours part of your daily writing. One of my friends uses to her journal to write a short story every day. I think they call her type of writing flash fiction.

Overall Impression: It feels like you have a lot on your plate with such a rigid writing schedule. I hope your beta readers are more prompt than mine have been.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn

Title: Dear Me: Attune Your Heart


First Impression: "Poetry is your jam, novel is your whale." I've been blessed. I've read your poetry. Yes, it is your jam. I've enjoyed your writing style immensely.

What needs your attention: I didn't note any punctuation or grammar issues.

Favorite Parts: Writing doesn't define us. I agree. It's no different than a cook or a car sales man. It's one aspect of many. We can be whatever we want when we sit down to the page.
I've found blogging helpful especially when it comes to family issues. It's so much easier to sort things out on the page before speaking. We don't have to apologize as often either.

Overall Impression: Your letter is very organized and the goals feel attainable. I wish you lots of success, Brian.

Thank you for letting me read your work. It was my pleasure! Lyn
