Thank you for this great information. I have been wondering what the virtual dice was all about. Now I know.

Thank you for this thorough information. I didn't realize that the software powering this fantastic site was all yours. I've enjoyed my time here and the folks that I've met. I still struggle with some of the ways to link items and understanding how to format books, static items, etc. But I'm going to read and learn.

Hello. I thought I would review the top-ranked reviewer. Your idea is original. I love the word ensconced. We don't use it enough. There are no obvious errors in your poem. I don't think that you went deep enough with your theme. It should be longer like a piece of classical music. Perhaps some analogies comparing the tunes to the couple's love. Thank you for sharing your poetry. Best of luck with your writing.

Review of The Fun House

Hello. I read your short story after browsing by type. Extremely well done. Your idea is original and clever. The dialogue is spot on for the character's ages. You include just the right mixture of suspense and action. The tone is dark. It could be darker. You've created a wonderfully scary and ominous mood. The writing reminds me of Ray Bradbury. Thank you for the great read. Good luck with your writing.

Good use of dialogue. It moves the Story forward. You build up the suspense through the action. Impressive. The characters are believable although I could not sympathise with the woman. What are you considering for a title? The writing is memorable regarding the torture scene. The basic tone is spot on.

Hello. I read this piece of text because it was listed on the public review forum. This is a clever and witty piece. It made me smile. The dialog carries the plot and gives all of the information that is needed. That is difficult to do. I like the natural way that the characters talk. Well done.😁

Hello. I read this because it was listed on the public review forum. The idea is good. The development and organization are adequate. The writing could use more imagery. The word choice is a bit weak. The dialogue needs to be formatted. It is a bit confusing.

Hello. I read this because it was listed on the public review forum. Personal memoirs are difficult for us to write. Your development is good. You have included the right amount of details. The order is logical and flows well. There are no major problems. When you go back to revise, work on two things: word choice and description.

Hello. I read this because it was listed on the public review page. The theme of this poem is baring ourselves to our lover. That notion can be a bit brutal. Your imagery is spot on. I am reminded of the Sting song, EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE. The form works perfectly.

I read this because it was on the public review forum. The idea is appropriate, but the title doesn't represent the theme. The repetition works well, but it does lend itself to a poem for children. The rhythm works well in this poem. The tone is silly. The mood is light hearted.

I read this because it was on the public review page. The exposition is interesting in that you asked some intriguing questions. The development leaves quite a few questions. Is the nurse from another planet? You said she was red. The organization is good. This is obviously the beginning to a piece. The word choice is good. The dialogue seems a bit stiff.

I read this because it was listed on the public review page. I watched my father die last year. The grieving never ends. Our best poetry comes from our tragedies. It is so easy to write about our joys. The poet must also show us his grief and not just tell us that he is said. This poem comes from your heart.

Review of Silent Stones

Rated: E | (4.0)
Hello. Your poem was listed in one of the newsletters that I read today. The title and topic are excellent. Poems with allusions to dead soldiers are always appropriate. My favorite part is the last stanza, especially the metaphor comparing the headstone to a mute storyteller. The first stanza is well-written. It would be better if it was told with more imagery like the final stanza.

I read this piece because it was listed on the public review forum. The exposition is excellent. You set the setting and characters very well. The development is good at first, but the ending seems rushed. I am assuming that you wanted to stay within the parameters of the word count expectations. I debated between a 3.5 and a 4 rating because of the rushed ending.

Review of Cuba Calling

Rated: E | (4.0)
I read this piece because it was listed in the public review forum. The idea and development are good. The organization is logical, but the lack of formatting makes it somewhat difficult to follow. Your voice is strong in this piece. It is hypnotic like the music you describe. Your word choice is adequate. You have used appropriate words for this piece. I chose a four star rating because of the formatting and the sense of disorganization it creates.

Hello, I read this because it was on the public review forum. I love the idea of this piece. I may be completely off course, but I think this is about phone sex. I love poetry that includes dialogue. It usually adds a touch of irony. I did get confused about who is speaking. Overall, the poem is quite clever.

Review of Dreaming  
In affiliation with Native First Peoples Group  
Rated: E | (3.5)
I read this because it was on the public review forum. The idea is an excellent one. Readers enjoy stories about folks who make it in spite of all odds. Your words are telling me things about the characters, but they need to show me.

For example, don't tell me that the boy is rich. Describe the car that he drove up in. Describe his clothes. Avoid using so many linking verbs.

You could take out the first paragraph. It adds nothing to the story.
