Review Style
I like to give a fair honest review on anything. I believe in giving every review a custom review and not a cookie cutter. I will point out all the mistakes as well as offer or show help to fix it.
I'm good at...
In depth reviews. I check flow, some grammar if it pulls the reader out of the story. I also check consistency, characters are they real, believable, or fake. I check your plot, theme, and look for flaws. I enjoy both tell and show having grown up reading tell all my life. I will help with ideas on what could make the story or chapter better.
Favorite Genres
I love comedy, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, and horror.
Least Favorite Genres
poetry

I will not review...
Bad poetry because I really don't know enough to help them fix it. Besides I really wouldn't know good poetry from bad. With all the different styles and structures what might not be bad at all. To me would be so rather then stick foot in mouth and chew vigorously. I would tell you the truth and say I suck at poetry and not disappoint one of the great people here on WDC.

Hi there abcoachnz-WFH ! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie! I am reviewing
 Clean Up  (18+)
Short story of a man retelling his days experience.
#1949391 by abcoachnz-WFH


PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* I enjoyed reading this story. It does read well and it has a good flow. I enjoyed several parts especially the ending. I will not mention it here to keep from giving it away great twist.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB*You laugh. Even now, as I think about it, I want to do just like Joe did there. The bed had been ripped up like some wolverine-type person had been looking for something. I liked this part because you didn't go into heavy description you gave us enough to use our minds and make our own scene. You did a great job on that.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* On a short story we use title, description, and story. I compare the title and the description and read the story to see how confused I get. Actually I wasn't confused the plot was about a man telling a new friend about his worst nightmare job.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* I liked how you did your characters. You didn't give me a shopping list you just allowed me to find out more as the story developed. Very nicely done.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You did your setting very well. Example: " Must have been quite a nice house in its day, but is now a little rundown. The yard looked like it could have done with a mow or some care. I still don’t understand why people don’t just have evergreens. That would avoid all the slippery dead leaves lying round the place."

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You used your dialog well. The story was told in first person and you stayed in first person really well you staid consistent in it. Example: "The cop muttered something about a triple murder before standing aside for us. But, man, was I in for a surprise. As I said earlier, I am used to this kind of stuff, but that place was beyond it."

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* Here is where I normally tell people if your just writing for fun or just using the site for storage please ignore the rest. But if your working to be a professional writer you would format this story as if it was in a published book. With indents on paragraph starts and line spacing between speech lines and paragraphs. Because with as good of writing that your doing you really should be proud of it and edit it to reflect your professionalism. Next your fine with your word choice of tyre but since I'm not from British influence it jerked me out of the story. I was thinking how to fix it so both people could understand it the only suggestion would be to add right next to it (tire.)

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB* I used a new beta program on it just for this to show you ways to improve your writing.

The other point it showed was you had nine sentences ending with a preposition. You have used five weak words and four passive words.

In closing, by eliminating as many that's as you can it will start doing a lot more show as well. Heavy use of that is a tell wording. It still reads well but for tires lol. But for your audience it is a great choice. For the American audience I would suggest you change the spelling is all.

Hi there Awkward Words ! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie of The Talent Pond! I am reviewing
 No more sweet words  (E)
Just a random poem, post break up
#1974914 by Awkward Words


*BulletB* Personal Impression *CheckB* I several impressions. I promise to keep to one impression and one observation. My impression is that of man finding out his woman is leaving him for another. I don't know who you are since you have no bio. Now the observation when you center your text if you look at the whole form what do you see? I see a hilt of a two handed sword with the blade broken off. At first I thought it was interesting it would take this specific shape. As I was typing this it came to me what was once one is now two. I am noticing more and more when we center our work the art form the text takes. I find that we have a natural art form with the poems we write both in text pictures as well as the illusions and emotions these show us.

*BulletB* Tone & Mood *CheckB* The tone and mood is sadness at a great loss. Example: "You will always be the day dream

Of which I loved so well."


*BulletB* Rhyme, Form & Flow *CheckB* The form is free style and this really does flow well.
Example of flow:
"Through this broken love seeps reason

It's cold logic driving frivolous fantasy from mind."


*BulletB* Emotional Impact *CheckB* I feel the sadness of the dying relationship I see the determination to go ahead and prepare to love again.
Example: "Goodbye My little bird,

My shattered crystal princess"


*BulletB* Grammar/Punctuation *CheckB*

I pried and tried.
I looked far and wide.
Alas no bad grammar,
Could this Grammar Nazi find! (Please excuse my poor attempt at humor but it is true!)

Hi there QueenOwl ~ A New Day Dawns ! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie! I am reviewing
 Honk, If You Like Rush  (E)
The relationship between freedom of speech and political correctness in my point of view.
#1974980 by QueenOwl ~ A New Day Dawns


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* "Honk!" "Honk!" Yes like you I like Rush. I also agree with what you are pointing out in your essay. Quote: "The truth is that freedom of speech and political correctness are in conflict with each other." Part of our problem is we all are running scared of confrontation, just like you had at the stop light. We are afraid of someone getting upset and going postal right in our own neighborhood. In some respects terrorism is working for them in more ways then we want to give credit.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* Be that as it may, the activists for illegal immigration, on the other hand, do not like the term "illegal" and prefer to call them "undocumented" immigrants. Of late, the word "terrorism" has been stricken from White House vocabulary and replaced with "isolated extremists" or similar description removing the tint of Islamic terrorism all together. I like this part because it backs up what I was talking about in my impressions.

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*
I pried and tried.
I looked far and wide.
Alas no bad grammar,
Could this Grammar Nazi find! (Please excuse my poor attempt at humor but it is true!)
I had to get out my two handed magnifying glass to find the only error in the whole piece. You have no bad grammar I could find or spelling but alas the very last sentence at the very end too. Oh cruel world it had to spoil a perfect record. I still wish I hadn't found it!

We can happily and peacefully co-exists amid cultural and religious diversities if we ground ourselves with God-given compassion and caring for each other <--- Your missing the ending period of all things.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* I feel like I was reading an article in a magazine. It was presented in a professional way.

In closing this has been a true pleasure to read this. I agree with you on your position on "Freedom of Speech" versus "Political Correctness." We should feel protected to express our opinion freely, and not worry about retaliation whether we are politically correct or just telling people like it is. I fought a war in Vietnam for just that reason same for all our other veterans it is the reason we fight.

Hi there ! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie! I am reviewing {bitem:}

Welcome to WDC or Writing Dot Com. I hope you are enjoying your stay here. As you look around you will find some of the nicest, friendly people always willing to help.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Isn't it interesting how fate works. You lose something in life and gain another.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* She recognized him as one of her neighbors, though they had never spoken. He handed her a tissue and looked out at the lake without speaking. She mopped the tears from her face. The reason I like this part is the way you transitioned her from grief to curious and the possibilities took hold.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*The story matches the title and the description. A women's doubts of fate and fates retaliation.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You developed your characters well. Example: "As the children of a traditional woman of incomparable beliefs, Amani and her sisters’ had come to share their mother’s truth that there were no coincidences, only fate."

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You set your stage well. Example: "A woman sat at the edge of the dock, her toes dipped in the cool water."

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You used the dialog well to advace your plot and the story. Example: "The lake is beautiful this time of day.” He had a deep, melodic voice.

Hi there GATE Coaching }! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie! I am reviewing
 GATE for Chemical Engineering  (E)
Chemical Engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the design, construction.
#1974777 by vaniinstitute


PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* If your trying to impress me with these courses and areas of study and job opportunities your add failed. To prove why it didn't reach your goal lets break it down section by section. The introduction looks like a section taken from a college class guideline on subjects they have to offer. This is designed to be informative on class study not a sales pitch to get me interested in joining the ranks of chemical engineering. If you read it from a person looking for a job or career how far would you read it. Now you see my point. For a sales add it is just a large information dump. For a course curriculum it is perfect. For a recruiting add you need to rethink it. To give you the help you can use. Think back on what drew you to join this learning institution? What part of it's advertizing appealed to you? Now use that in the intro.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* Your task will be to design, install and maintain plants of large-scale processes in oil, chemical, pharmaceutical industries, mineral-based industries, petrochemical plants, synthetic fibres and petroleum refining plants. Now with this part your starting to sell it instead of filling us with facts.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* Now the next section is your core subjects. Your job is to sell this to me. Right now it looks like a shopping list. If you would give a short synopsis on each item in a color say blue. Not only will it make more sense to me on what I'm reading but color always attracts the eyes. By giving us the reader an idea of why each subject is needed for a real job in the chemical industry makes it more likely to get people interested.

On Further Education what do all your aberrations mean? Your trying to sell new people to this industry we have no clue on what BTech/BE or MTech/MS means. You really should always spell these out.

My next section is "Job Profiles"
At this point in your add the text section is okay it could be jazzed up but it actually works as it is. The main issue with this is stop with all the aberrations. Your trying to get me interested in job possibilities. I want to know if I use your courses there is a real job waiting. I want to know the full company names so I can do a Google and check them out. A bunch of letters like BPCL just makes me stop right there. The correct way is full name, address, website link, email address for the recruiter. Include other contact links make it believable to your reader, otherwise it is just another shopping list to skip over.

In closing another way to understand is to look at your competition's adds and see what they do to advertise. It should give good ideas on how to make this greater. I will always be glad to review this again after you have reworked it.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 Something Awry  (E)
A very short story about an oddity spotted among a farm.
#1974476 by Preston Orrick


Welcome to WDC. In your exploring the site you will find a lot of really nice and friendly people here who are always willing to help. If I can help you in any way please feel free to ask anytime.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB*It really is a short story. It does have potential to be expanded out into a novel or novella or a much larger short story. It does have a lot of potential.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB*Darren has been working these fields for the better part of eight years, and can spot any one of his fellow workers from a reasonable distance. The reason I like this part is your justifying how Darren can see this oddity from a tracker out in the middle of the lower back forty.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* For short stories we use the title, description, and read the story. They all match, the plot is about the spotting of the oddity that likes chicken.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* you didn't go into great detail you just gave us enough to use our own minds to fill in the blanks. Example: "The oddity looked like a person, but had jumped almost like a kangaroo and adorned what looked like fur running up its back."

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* The setting were a tractor in a field plowing the ground in preparation for planting. the next scene was at the barn and inside. You did your settings well.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB*This was told in third person it was all dialog.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* This is the point where I tell you that if your just writing for fun or you are just using the site for storage then ignore the rest. If your interested in pursuing a writing career than here are some tips. Tip #one. A professional always uses line space between paragraphs and indents the starting of each paragraph.

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*
Tip #two. Always read your story out loud and you would have caught the following errors.

A very short story about an oddity spotted among a farm. <--- Wouldn't 'at' work better in the title than among?

Curious, he stops the tractor and hops onto the freshly paved ground. <--- Shouldn't that be 'plowed ground' instead of paved ground?

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 ich liebe dich. wo ai ni. ai shiteru.  (E)
a simple essay about La-La-La LOVE.
#1974453 by Janskii


Welcome to WDC. I hope your finding things to your liking here. As you start looking around, you will find nice friendly people here always willing to help. If I can be of service please feel free to ask.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* It's nice to know the ladies share some of the same things men do. We all have our favorite dream person. Whether we married them, dating them, or trying to find them.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB*I might have doubted his loyalty several times but the first time he looked at me straight in the eye & told me he loves me, I cant help it but just be thankful that i got him. I like this part because your honest about it with both your feelings and reality.


*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* If your writing for fun or just storing your work here please ignore the rest. If your serious about being a professional writer then here are some tips to help you out.

Tip #one- :) <--- In professional writing you only use these in texting either in phone or story about people texting.

Tip #two. Who is this actually written for. The people here are adults at least 90% or more. You need to watch the hip slang because most adults will stop reading and go find something else to read if they cannot relate to your slang. Why should they take time out of their day to Google all your references? Your audience was pretty much the YA (Young Adult) here, the ten percent. Professionals always know the market they are writing for.

Tip #three. This is a multinational website, but putting titles in a different language is making sure you only get that language speaking audience which really limits your chance of being recognized or offered to write for publishing companies.

Tip #four. Your work no matter what your doing with it should always follow professional standards like indents at the start of every paragraph. You always want your work to be better than all the rest. I know you can do this after all I did read your work all the way through. You do have great potential.

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*

Tip #five. All ways read your articles out loud before hitting save. All the little errors I found below wouldn't be here if you practice that.

if at all possible, the man I wished was made for me had murky hair, tall, enticing eyes, had the right kind of body structure <--- If should have been capitalized since it is the start of a sentence.

He do not know everything but with him, all chit chats are just PERFECT.. <--- Two thing wrong here 'do' should be doesn't and you only need one period at the end of the sentence.

and i am not really sure what the future holds for us.<--- You need to capitalize the 'i' in the sentence.

I cant help it but just be thankful that i got him.. <---You need to put an ' in cant and again delete the extra period.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 Chicken Dance  (E)
A silly little "essay" that I had to write for a creative non-fiction class.
#1974358 by Kama Jamiolkowski


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Now that is a bit more interesting then Master Chef. You know I though it might be one of those dry boring pieces on how to cook chicken. Actually I was surprised it more like a short story about cooking chicken to music.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* I take my razor sharp, bone defying knife and make the first incision. Metallica blares "Ride the Lightening," and I think of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer." But I've just started this dance with these chickens. The reason I like this part is this is the start of your dance the needed confrontation with the chicken and the musical references like using a sledge hammer on these poor things.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* This actually does have a plot strange no? The title and your story do match. The description could use a rewrite. But hey nothing is perfect.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* The main character versus chickens you didn't over describe them. You left us lots of room to use our mind.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB*You did great, there was a kitchen with appliances and cooking utensils etc...

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* It was all first person so it was all dialog you used it well to tell the story and advance your plot.

In closing it was well written. You actually had the beginning of conflict the actual conflict and the resolution. Examples: Beginning - I stand alone, facing this naked, dead bird. Conflict - The pieces and portions fall seamlessly from the carcass as I massacre this poor bird. The Resolution - In the words of Julia Child, "A little wine for the chicken, a little wine for the cook."

#1974122 by heartlesssoul63


Welcome to WDC. I hope your find your stay worth while. As you look around you will find a lot of nice friendly people always willing to help. If i can help you out please feel free to ask me anytime.

PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Interesting Zombie story. I was attracted to it because of the journal entry method you used nice style. Upon reading the whole story, this method worked well for this type of story.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* The outbreaks been out for about a week or so now and I’ve gone through a couple of these zombies. I can feel all the radiation around me so there is an outbreak somewhere near. I’m going to go rob this store for the goods that are left inside of it. I will be back to this journal soon. I liked this part because you tell us why the zombies are being created in your area.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*Now comes the fun part I use title, description and read the story to see how confused I get. Your title matches the story. The description how ever is true but doesn't tell the plot of survival. In short stories a contest judge will call you on it. The fix is very simple add 'survival' in the description problem solved.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* The characters were described just enough to let our minds do the work to place the needed imagery.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You moved around a lot so the setting jumped around instead of leading us smoothly from one setting to next setting. It's okay I understand you were trying not to get bit.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You told this tale as first person with some third person jumping in now and then. You need to keep this first person so take out your gun and shoot that third person now your finished with him.

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*

I was sitting on the couch about an hour and half ago and saw on the television,.<--- Interesting way to end a sentence wouldn't a period do just as good?

So I robbed the store for all of its goods I got a 9mm pistol twelve bullets a fire axe and some canned food I killed three of the zombies today.<--- My suggestion is:"I robbed the store for all of its goods I got a 9mm pistol, twelve bullets, a fire axe, and some canned food. I killed three of the zombies today.

So I got some lead for my pen.<--- We the readers like consistency wouldn't "mechanical pencil" work better here because a pen is always associated with ink and ink refill cartridges. The other issue I had with this was I thought by a pack of lead was some one would fill him up with lead thus ending his life. Your confusing us with the wording or choices of words if you swap out pack of lead for ink refill cartridges you kill two birds with one stone.

he also has a bullet proof vest where who’s scouting wears it each night. <--- You know one of the best tricks ever was taught to me by my daughter. She told me to read my work out loud before hitting save. It is one of the best tricks ever. If you had read this out loud you would have found it doesn't make sense and kicks the reader out of the story your working so hard to tell us.

He was a Pre Navy Seal just like me a corporate <--- Wow I never met a corporate navy seal before. I have met a corporal though as well as other department of navy personnel. Don't you just hate it when your spell checker gives you the wrong word as the first choice?

In closing If your just writing for fun or just storing your work here you can just ignore it all. But if your serious about being an author you do have potential and I do have some good tips for you if you ever go back in and edit this story. Tip #one descriptions shouldn't read like a grocery shopping list. the idea is like a woman's purse. you only put something in the purse that carries your plot forward. Does the reader or the zombie really care what gun you shoot the zombie with? Next the only grocery item besides food was matches the rest was over description.

Tip #two. There were a lot more errors I didn't show. What I did was show you the most common ones so you now know what to look for when you do your edit. I am titled "The Run-on King" but your story looked like you were trying out for my title. I will still have you beat I wrote over 108,000 words of run-on.

Tip #three always indent your paragraphs it makes it look even better like a pro wrote it.

I am always willing to come back and review it again and change my rating after you edit this.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Wow what an interesting story you wrote. I cannot begin to tell you how much fun I had reading your story. You have peaked my interest in what happened to Annie such a long time ago that has her worried so much. An example is: She dreamed of what had happened and several times she woke up in a chilling puddle of worry.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* The high winds caused Annie to fear a hurricane or a tornado. She was petrified like a peace of old wood. Her face froze in the heat under her covers and she sweat, but she remained calm in spite of what had happened in the past, a past she wanted to forget but she couldn't stop remembering. I love how you described Annie's condition in these two sentences. I was amazed at all the detail and conditions happening at once to the poor lady.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*Normally on a short story I try and use the title, description, and read the story. I like to see how confused I get. Some times we as writers forget our main plot and add several sub plots in our stories. I believe that happened here. As a suggestion I think you might check your story outline and consider a small rewrite on this story.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You did well on your characters Annie and Buster. Examples: Annie was frail. She was not that old and her hair was blonde turning brown and her waste was small. Buster was a mix breed dog and he liked to play.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* Annie worried and was alone in her house. The next thing she knew was the sun shining in through her bedroom window. We knew where we were most of the time the dog however seem to roam the house a lot. You may want to consider putting a leash on the dog.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You used your dialog well to help keep the fear down in the dog. Example: "It's okay, Buster. There's nothing to worry about."

In closing your descriptions were okay but there were places it got really confusing for the reader pulling me out of your story. I feel you should read this out loud and review it for the confusing spots. It could use some new thoughts on the confusing spots. You had some miss spelled words and some interesting uses of punctuation. You have great potential as I have pointed out above. If you decide to do a rewrite on this story please let me know I would be happy to review it and change my rating of it.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

Thanks for sharing this item! I only review things that I enjoy reading and I truly did enjoy this piece. Please keep on writing more things just like this!

 Flight 493  (13+)
Walken is forced to make drastic measures when his aircraft is hijacked by his best friend
#1974073 by Michael Fricke


I would like to take the time to welcome you to WDC. (Writing Dot Com) I hope your finding the site to your liking. There are a lot of nice friendly people here always willing to help. If i can be of any help please feel free to ask me.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB*The story was a great read. It was interesting enough to hold my attention to finish it.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB*The wail of the engines now fills the air, and its pitch increases as I drive the thrust lever forward. We begin to roll across the runway, slowly gaining speed. I advance another one of the throttle handles, and the whole aircraft gives a little kick, as if shifting gears. The outside world is now a blur, and I watch the airspeed dial carefully. The aircraft rumbles and vibrates slightly, and I know she is eager to touch the sky. I really like this part because you did such a good job of describing man and machine getting ready to fly.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* Most short stories we use the title, the description, and read the story to figure out the plot. The title didn't do much for the plot personally but in truth it doesn't matter too much it wasn't confusing to the reader so it's fine. The story and description match as the plot was about killing a best friend.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB*I liked all your characters. I didn't think you over did or under did them I think you gave me enought to picture them as you needed me to so the story was interesting for me to read it all the way through. I did have a small confusion on ten years versus five years until I figured out it was for two different characters You might want to drop one like the ten years and it would still work great.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You did an excellent job on the settings of your airplane as well as for your action.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You did a really great job on the first person point of view from the main character it was all dialog and you used it well.

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*

"Russian Prime Minister needs me in for business. Not permitted to talk about-“<---This is just a suggestion is why put the - why not just put "it" and end it.

“Well,” He says with a wave of his hand. “Best get to seat. Nice talk to you!” <--- shouldn't that be (Best be getting to my seat) and (Nice talking to you!) The only reason I am pointing this out is you started out the dialog on this character speaking normally as a highly trained professional diplomat there fore he would speak like a pro and not like someone just learning to speak English.

I tell him sternly. “What’s going on down there?”<--- Okay think point of view all the captain really sees is the door so behind the door is a hall way on the top floor he really would say "out" instead of down. I'm only pointing this out because as a reader it pulled me out of your story.

A series of four beeps sound, and James informs me that all of the fans are operating smoothly. <--- Shouldn't that be engines you used engines earlier its all part of being consistent.[/c}

It isn’t every day you are forced to kill your best friend. <-- You say this three times in the story, or so it seems to me. My suggestion is drop one of them preferably the last one as that was the one that dropped my attention from the story and going what does it prove I have seen this quite a few times already.

Hi there ! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie! I am reviewing {bitem:}

PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* My general impression was it started out very interesting you had me drawn in by your description then the story grabbed me and kept me there until the last. You did a really great job on the writing you put a lot of thought into it as well. I wish I could give you a five star on it but I cannot just yet.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* Outside his two daughters threw leaves at each other wildly, strewing across the yard hours of work. He laughed. They had just returned home from school as the air began to chill in that delicious way only Fall can muster. I enjoyed the descriptive scenery. I too love the fall and playing in the leaves as both a child and as a father, it is so easy to relate to your main character.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* your plot was easy to figure out by the title, description aswell as reading the story you did a great job with all of it.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You know I felt you did a great job on them. You didn't give me a shopping list of details you just gave enough details for my mind to do all the work. It made the story flow and was interesting because you tricked me into making it interesting by allowing me to fill in the blanks in my own way. Example:"William sat comfortably in the plush green easy chair." See "William" nothing more I filled in a man sitting in that chair.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You transitioned well from outside the house to inside with the daughters. William was always in the house he never left it. Example:" Panic briefly flared in his chest when he heard the sound of sneakers against the old wooden floors."

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* This was told in third person it was all dialog you used it well also the dialog between the children and the father was done well.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* This part if you just writing for fun or using the site for storage please ignore. Now if your serious about getting noticed or working on being a pro. Your story should look like it was in a published book. With indents on paragraphs line space between speech and paragraphs. It just takes a little extra time due to the way Writing ML uploads into the system your document. But it makes a real difference and this is one way to tell the pros from the novices.

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*

The it was over and the room became very still. <--- It would read better this way example: It was over and the room became very still.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 The Wizard's Choice  (E)
A wizard must decide, save himself or save the world. Only 100 words long!
#1974019 by WritingNoob14


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Interesting story nicely done in the short amount of words used. I see a lot of potential about spin offs of this for future stories. I see you met the short story criteria. It must start out normal, build up to a conflict and then resolve it. Very nice job of writing.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* The magic flowed through his body as he created a beam of purple energy in his palm. I like this part mostly for the way you hooked me into reading it, next it is leading to the conflict thus meets the starting qualification. Very nicely done.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* The plot short as it was was good one the wizards choice.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB*There was only one character you really didn't have a lot of room for more. You didn't force us to limit our imagination. As far as I know it was Harry Potter doing the magic.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* There wasn't much in the room, just him and a fire place. It was definitely not a regular fireplace though. It glowed green instead of orange and small whispers could be heard coming from it. I showed these because you were setting up the stage with a room and a green demon gate fire place. We knew exactly where we were and what the action was going to be about.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You told this in third person, it was all dialog. You used your diaglog well

*BulletB* Grammar/Spelling/Punctuation *CheckB*

I pried and tried.
I looked far and wide.
Alas no bad grammar,
Could this Grammar Nazi find! (Please excuse my poor attempt at humor but it is true!)

 jacob and megan ch 1 1/2  (13+)
these two siblings need some help potty training
#1973666 by ace


Welcome to WDC. I hope you are finding your way around the site pleasant. You will meet the friendliest and nicest people here always willing to help. If I can be of help Please feel free to ask.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB*Well it was short lol. But what are doing with this since it is a chapter.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB*Jacob was reluctant but figured it was better than waking up in a soaked bed. Best sentence of them all.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*It's not a short story so we might not see it start to show up until other chapters.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* Started out ok with the two little kids and the mother.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB*bathroom only you never have them change scenes directly just a note they came out and slept in bed.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB*your telling this from a narrator point of view which is fine right now it's third person voice.

His mother stretched out the goodnite in front of him, jacob stepped in the leg hoes and his mother slid the goodnite up his body until the top of the goodnite was near his belly button. <--- We always Capitalize names should be 'Jacob.' Never knew that they made hoes for children's legs. Shouldn't that be 'holes?'

he then went to the mirror in the bathroom and examined himself. <--- Starting the head of a sentence should always be capitalized should be 'He.'

Okay you asked for ideas. Well If I was writing a book or novel etc... The first thing I decide on is what do I want to write, who is my audience I'm writing to, and thirdly what market is there for this work. Now to be honest I have never read a story about bed wetting. I'm an adult I don't have that problem and even if I did it would be a medical issue and "depends' for seniors will work just fine for me. Your real market would be children especially if you tailor this as a how to stop bed wetting.

However I have a creative mind my take on this would be to set it up so Jacob wets the bed really bad and all mom finds is really soaked bed and a missing child. His sister wants to save him so she starts to wet the bed and the bed wetting Monsters come and grab her. The two make their way out from under ground back home after spending time down there with all kinds of adventures. Again the market being children.

Now the other take I have on this is dark the father is always sneaking in his room with a big shiny knife and that is why he is wetting the bed. This builds up until the dad snaps and tries to kill his whole family. now this market would be adult horror action/adventure market if you can add a lot of mystery in the mix you can gain more of a market.

Last idea is the bed wetting is a right of passage that happens for three months then the kid gets his powers and all hell breaks loose. This of course is the sci-fi/fantasy market and if you word it right mystery as well as action/adventure.

I hope this helps after all you did ask.

 Magic: The Clash of Two Powers  (E)
Epic battle between Dragon and Wizard! Thrilling battle between the strongest creatures!
#1973614 by WritingNoob14


Welcome to WDC. I hope your finding your stay here enjoyable. There are a lot nice friendly people here. If you need any help please feel to ask.

PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* I love dragons. I write about them now and then. I like how you built up your story with the short amount of words, and how it meets the short story qualifications. You began The conflict with the dragon landing and looking majestic. The conflict rages as each side defends against attack. The great ending of the conflict, one roasted wizard.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* Recovering from his shock, the wizard created a beam of pure energy and sent it at the dragon. The dragon tried to jump away from the beam but it's attempt was in vain. The bolt connected with the dragons leg. The dragon bellowed, the screech caused the wizard to collapse to his knees, covering his ears, shattering his heat protection enchantment. As it's leg began to knit itself up the dragon sent a wave of magma at the wizard. The wizard was too slow to cast another enchantment. The wizard had been defeated. The reason I like this part is the way you described the heat of battle and how you brought the battle to a climax and it's abrupt ending.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*Normally the way plot is done for short stories is by description, title, and read the story. Now your story and title match for the plot of a clash of two magic powers a wizard and a dragon. But your description has nothing to do with this story. When I did something similar a judge explained it to me that with short stories. We can put notes above the title with things like word count, reviewing instructions, contest prompts, etc. They don't count as part the story. You want to use the description as the means to sell the story. When editors and such are looking for material that is what they look at.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* For the word limit you did really well with giving us just enough to use our imaginations to breath life into the two characters you used.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* With what you gave me I could envision a high mountain plateau as this major battle took place. You didn't do anything to distract from the setting. Good job.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* Since this was written in third person it was all dialog. You used your dialog well to advance the story and plot to it's ending.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 Strange Stars, Part V  (E)
Out of body, out of mind. . .
#1973655 by RebaLioness


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* I liked what I read of the chapter
*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* He had not spoken aloud, and he was startled to hear a response to his mental query. “Welcome to my nightmare.” A voice said from off to his side. He turned to see a large circular cage; its bars studded with wicked looking thorns, set into one wall. Inside sat the bedraggled figure of Beroyl, clad only in the length of his hair. Nathan began to hurry to the cage, and promptly tripped over the length of chain binding his own ankle to a thick staple in the floor. I liked this part it is very creative. I like this idea of what it might look like inside the souls chamber.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* I beleive I see parts of the plot here as well as the subplot for the chapter. It is looking really good.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You did a great job. I enjoyed the fact you didn't over load me with description. Example: " Inside sat the bedraggled figure of Beroyl, clad only in the length of his hair."

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* As I said earlier I like your description of this persons soul chamber or mind chamber not really sure but it still is not something that pulls the reader out of the story.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB*You use your dialog well to carry the subplot forth and still set up some elements of the main plot. Example: “Which means we need to be free of this predicament first.” Nathan tested the length of the chain. It stopped him just before being able to touch the cage bars. “Would it not have been simpler to do away with us?”

Gift for Natalie  (13+)
It's Natalie and Paul's tenth anniversary, so why doesn't she want her gift?
#1973640 by Char 🌈|Reviewing|


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Very interesting take on the story Charlie. Nicely written. I liked how you included the prompt into it as well.
*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* "I pulled my ski mask and leather gloves out of the duffel bag on the floor. Just in case." and "That’s pretty far to drag someone who’s kicking and screaming. I shook the thought away. You’re being negative again. It won’t come to that. But I had some duct tape and rope back in my car, just in case." I enjoyed these because they gave me hints that the husband wasn't all he seemed to be or in his right mind.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* For short stories we use the title, description, and read the story to see how confused we get. The title says Gift for Lovely. Who is Lovely is she Natalie? If so you should rename the title to: Gift for Natalie. Next point is a judge once told me on one of my entries to put the prompt and the word count after the title and before the story. Use the description to sell the story like you would for an editor to buy it. The prompt and word count do not count as the word count of the story.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You set us up with women to distract us with their bad husbands so you didn't need to detail them in pretty good trick. And it worked quite well. you don't go into great details thus allowing the reader to fill in the blanks.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB*You did a bit on details here setting up your stages for the ending. You didn't over describe it. Nice job on it.
*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB*You did a great job in using the dialog to advance your plot if stalker killer on a anniversary. Example: “Anniversary? What anniversary. We were never together, you psycho.” She backs up, reaching behind her for something, probably a weapon, but there are none.

In closing The judges will be looking for correct format of line spacing between speech lines and paragraphs

The Resurrection of a cigarette

I want to take the time to welcome you to WDC. I hope your finding your stay here pleasant. You will find the nicest most helpful people here. If I can be of any help please feel free to ask.

PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* You know I never thought about the effects that nicotine has on the brain. Since I am violently allergic to cigarettes. I try to stay away from them as much as possible. You point out one of the main reasons they are so addictive and a good piece of information to know.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* He felt a strange calmness within. Ideas were swirling through the brain. Nothing too clear, nothing too bright. But their very existence gave him some pleasure. The reason I like this is this is a great description on smoking I have ever seen and I like the way you describe it.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* The plot does follow your description and title. "He lit the cigarette, and took one huge puff of smoke."
*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You never really told us about this specific character. I just filled it in with the Marlboro Man sitting on his horse watching the clouds as you told me your story.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You never set up a stage for us to use so my view of the smoking man on a horse watching the sky works just as well as a setting.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* I liked your handle it actual fit as the teller of this story on addiction. You told this as third person so it was all dialog.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* The only thing that kept me from giving you a five star was your presentation. This looked like a new writer piece even if it was well written with no errors. Now if your writing for fun or just using the site for storage ignore this next part. Now on to what I am trying to point out. If you open up any book do you see how it is presented to you to read? This is what the pros judge your writing on.

         Does the sample of your best resemble the standard they are looking for? It doesn't because it is not in the standard book fashion. Indented paragraphs and actual paragraphs with line spacing between them. Now I have to tell you I liked reading this the way it was. You put in the line spacing so it wasn't all run together. But even with that it's not in a format that will get you noticed or have editors take a second look. Remember being a professional is an attitude not a degree someone hands you.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 How to promote website. Methods.  (E)
Create your website and post it to the Internet - it can be said , only half the battle .
#1973514 by rasstrigasss


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* For the most part you are correct. But you forgot about spiders and all the free search engines as well as the pay search engines. For a general article you still have to include them.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* Create your website and post it to the Internet - it can be said , only half the battle . I liked this part because your telling the real truth about the big "put it up they will come" lie.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* Lets get to the meat of things. For a friendly letter or a to help out a buddy it is okay. If your just writing this as a fun piece then ignore the rest as it doesn't apply here. If your writing to one day sell add copy or advertisement or any other professional writing then this is for you to help you be that pro. A professional piece looks like a page out of a book not this triple spaced thing. The next point is all pros use indenting as well. I will also show some coloration for sub titles after the grammar section. Pros don't put smiley faces as periods either. You use them in text messages not in professional work.

*BulletB* Grammar/Punctuation/Spelling *CheckB* You did well on the writing part but your punctuation needs a little more attention. You put spaces before all your commas example: "with visitors ," and periods as well. These are proper nouns and you do capitalize them. Example:"Google, Yandex, Rambler, and others."

Now allow me to show the way you would do this for a magazine article:

The Basic Rules of Website Promotion are:

Website Promotion Rules:
         First, you must make the semantic core of the site, or to draw up a list of key phrases for which you will untwist the site.

Methods of Website Promotion:
         Secondly, it is necessary to conduct an internal website optimization according to the key demands.

How to Promote Your Website:
         Thirdly, it is necessary to undertake an external site optimization according to the key demands. You try to get the maximum number of links to your site from other sites with similar themes, and in the text of these links should be present key phrases for which you want to optimize.

Any word processor has the color ability for text. Notice the difference in it, verses what you had before. In closing your information and the writing was good. Try reading it out loud before saving it. You would have caught most of the errors that way.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* I found your story interesting and entertaining. It was very well written.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* Both girls were beside themselves, fearful, shaking and pale. Amazingly, I found not a shade of anger in me towards them. Instead, my heart melted. I stepped back and thought: Two teenage girls hauling a 500-pound gorilla of a piano. Who would believe it? I like this section because it has two major points of plot and story. It shows how mom understood that two girls really were not to blame for this. It showed the plot part that mom wasn't going to blame them or get angry and would stand up to dad for them.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* The title, description and the story all matched. you stayed true to your plot.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You didn't really over describe the characters you gave us just enough to allow or imagination's to fill in all the rest. Example: "April-Joy’s boyfriend, Jeremy, and a couple of guys helped her haul the piano to the auditorium, twelve miles away, and that night she won the talent contest with her rendition of “The Moonlight Sonata.” She also came away with the most trophies."

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB*You used and always let us know where we were and why we were there. Nice writing on that part. Example: "I had to make up my mind whether I should stay to put up with him or proceed to the party. Well, I figured he needed time and space to cool off, so I took off with Kara and Gemma. When we got to the party,"

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You used your dialog well to both tell the story and advance the plot.
Example:
“It fell.”

"Fell, where?”

“Off the pick-up truck, on their way home.”


*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

Review of His problem

Hi there courtney wade ! "Gasp!" Your being reviewed by a newbie of The Talent Pond! I am reviewing
 His problem  (13+)
its about a man with a drinking problem
#1973356 by courtney wade


*BulletB* Personal Impression *CheckB* I liked this section the most. It gives any good father motivation to change. but she crawls up and says daddy I love you and
this you know but daddy you hurt me with the way you go you go in the
corner and we don't see you for weeks it's as if we never ever
speak daddy please stop for me and mum because what you are doing is
so wrong.


*BulletB* Tone & Mood *CheckB* The mood is about overcoming alcohol and how love of a child conquers all.

*BulletB* Rhyme, Form & Flow *CheckB*This was supposed to be free style. You have triple spacing, run together blobs. There is no art form in this. I felt like I was playing hide and go seek when trying to read a work of art.

*BulletB* Emotional Impact *CheckB* You did provoke two emotional impacts in me with this work. The first one was the fairy tale came true for the daughter. Well if you read the lines above in Form you can guess the other one.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* You know if your only writing for fun and just sticking some work here then please ignore this section. If your serious about a writing career and want to produce real art. You need to do the basics you follow a format even free style has a professional format. When you follow it your sentences take up shapes such as the daughter or the drunk you never know. I have seen this in a lot of the free style poetry here. You put in the correct line spacing between each stanza. I have reviewed your work before I was shocked to see this from you. I know you do a lot better work than this. I have read it. You have great potential as a writer. Your word crafting is very good but the presentation here is not up to your normal standards.

*BulletB* Grammar/Punctuation *CheckB* If you look at this blob of text it is just that a blob, no punctuation at all. Free style does use standard punctuation. It likes a title match for my title "The Run-on King." I still have you beat I have over 228,000 words of run-on.

He watches his little girl
stumble and quiver as she watches her dad drink and quiver, he wants
to break a habit but the truth really hurts so instead he lays his
head down on his bed but she crawls up and says daddy I love you and
this you know but daddy you hurt me with the way you go you go in the
corner and we don't see you for weeks it's as if we never ever
speak daddy please stop for me and mum because what you are doing is
so wrong


3 months later and he is clean <--- The numbers are always written out should have been 'Three.'

 The Wrong Man  (E)
LRWG # 01 A 500 word character description of someone I knew.
#1973020 by MzSnowleopard


Welcome to WDC. I hope you enjoy your stay here. I have found the people here are nice and very friendly. They are always willing to help you out. If I may be of any help please ask me anytime.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Isn't it amazing how we see other people. I agree with you from the way you described him he was not the person for you. He probably wasn't going to be right for most women.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* This silver haired Scorpio prided himself like an arrogant peacock. He had a telltale way of standing when he lied; squaring back his shoulders with his head up and chin tucked; he’d suck on his cigarette, holding it with two fingers pinched together. He did this quite often and many wondered if he even knew what the truth was. That was quite an observation you made about him I enjoyed the detail and how you restrained from getting sarcastic as well as making it sound netural at the same time. I know you had deep feelings about this after all the jerk broke your heart as well as being a drain on your hard work and good name.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*I debated with myself if I should just cut this part out of the review. Until I read the title and the description and the story. It does have a plot to describe this wrong man in your life. You did this extremely well.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB*You had three in this work Bill, Brian, and you. We learned all about Bill and even a bit about you, but who the heck is Brian and what part in this does he play?

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* you set your stages well I was never lost or caught a scene switch unexpectedly. You did very well on that part.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You used your dialog well since it was all dialog told in first person.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* This part if your just writing for fun or using the site a storage you can ignore. If your looking for recognition and getting published here is what little I know about it. Two things line spacing is the first one. A pro always make their work look like a published copy. No one likes reading blobs of run together text. Second part is your description. If a publisher or agent or even an e-zine editor looking for a quick short to add to their publication saw this what do you think they would do? What they are looking for is descriptions that draw you in and entice you to read this story.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 Coming Out: Neo-Marksism  (E)
An article about being a wrestling fan as an adult in today's world.

Welcome to WDC. I hope your finding things to your liking here. This is one of the few places where we have the nicest people always willing to help out anyone. If I can be of service please feel free to ask me anytime.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* At first I was indifferent about reading this. As I got into it I began to truly read it. I'm glad I did. I can remember when we used to watch wrestling both as a family and individually. I still like Hulk Hogan both as an actor and a wrestler. You did a great job with this piece.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* I have a better idea of what’s important in life, and at the risk of sounding too philosophical, I tell you that everyone is unique. Some of us embrace that, and others hide it. What kind of life will you have if you hide the things you love from yourself? For me, this is wrestling. For others it may be being a Yankee fan in Boston, or loving Country Music in the roughest of neighborhoods. I like this part because you showed us as we all really are. We all have different likes and dislikes. We should embrace what and who we are and not let the worldly view take it away from us.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB*You know sometimes in articles and in a short story finding the plot is difficult. I looked to the title and to the description to give me the needed clues. According to both and on reading the article you stayed on your plot. Great job on this.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* There really was only one character, you and your relationship to the plot.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* The settings followed your area of your topic well. You never over describe any area or settings. Example: In 2008, I went to the Royal Rumble at Madison Square Garden.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You told the whole story from first person it was all dialog you used it well to tell you memories and opions that you were wanting to share with us. You really did a great job.

*BulletB* Grammar, Spelling, and Punctuation *CheckB* You know I had to get a great big magnifying glass. You know the one that takes two hands to use just to find these errors.

Being proud to love wrestling, however, is something with which is have struggled in the past.<--- This sentence doesn't make sense to me the reader. A suggestion would be: "Being proud to love wrestling, however, is something with which I have struggled with in the past.

For other’s it may be being a Yankee fan in Boston, or loving Country Music in the roughest of neighborhoods. <--- Other's should be others.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

 CREATE BELIEVE AND ACHIEVE  (E)
do what you must to open your eyes
#1972855 by sai


Welcome to WDC. I hope your enjoying your stay here. There are a lot of nice and friendly people here. They are always willing to help anyone who asks.

*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* I agree with your point. Why hasn't someone done something well because when your fighting a governing body they tend to lock you up for things like being a terrorist etc... If your upset with Obama well just wait he can now never be re-elected again in anyone's life time. But as my next to youngest child pointed out who really engineered this mess? We should have cleaned out all those politicians like we started to do. We wouldn't be complaining now would we.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* That should be the world if someone does something find the mistakes and correct them so that someone can find your mistakes too. I liked this part I found it so ironic. Isn't fixing your mistakes yours and gods problem.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You had quite a few compelling reasons for your feelings on the condition our world is in. But like the politicians who were shutting down the government in protest. Did even one put forth a bill to change the situation? You want change all of us do but what is your plan to stop it all and fix the mistakes?

*BulletB* Grammar and Spelling *CheckB*

}CREATE BELIEVE AND ACHIEVE <--- Remove the '}' at the front and add commas it should read like this: CREATE, BELIEVE, AND ACHIEVE

7 billion people, not even 1 to stand up and tear the mask of off the blood sucking government and others, alleged promises and empty shells. <--- Numbers should always be written out: Seven billion and even one.

There's a saying that goes like this, "if u want something to be done do it yourself" and do it yourself u should. <--- Since this is not a text message to a friend in proper writing you always spell out 'you.'

For Lucifer was one's an angel, he was cast out of heaven because he stood up where his brother's didn't he showed courage, maybe the god's way was the right one. <--- Shouldn't that be once not one's and the 'the' is not needed here.

My dad always says "if he can do it u can do better" and better will I do!<--- Again 'u' for you.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* Now if your writing this for fun just ignore my tips and help as it will never apply. But if your serious as a writer, take a real look at this article. Would you read it if you chanced upon it? Professionalism is an attitude that professional writers practice. They know when to use text speech and when not to, as well as using indents on paragraphs, and separating paragraphs with line spacing.

*Exclaim* Please remember that you are best judge of what is right for your story *Exclaim* Whatever another person says -- especially me *Exclaim* -- whether positive or negative, is just their opinion *Exclaim* You are the only one who can decide what is right for your story. *Exclaim*

A man no longer sees the point of life, and this is his story.
#1972780 by its_just_me


PDG motto: "Offering quality helpful reviews in a positive and encouraging manner."


*BulletB* General Impressions *CheckB* Actually I'm not into suicide so not I'm not going get as caught up in it as you did lol. I'm more into trying to dodge space cannon blasts of pure destructive energy. But I am trying my hand in dark death and the like. I decided to see what had you so excited about this. I liked the story as a whole. I think you did a good job on writing it.

*BulletB* Favorite Parts *CheckB* I rejoice at the silence that fills my mind. The pure peace that grasps at me as my body becomes heavy. I'm tired, but I don't know why. I slip off of the edge of the bathtub and lie myself onto the floor. I can't form a coherent thought. Why? I'm so tired. I feel something clenched in my hand, but I don't know what it is. I lift my arm, marveling at how heavy it is, like it's made of stone. There's an orange bottle. A pill bottle. Why am I grasping an empty pill bottle? I let it fall out of my hand as my arm drops back to the floor. The pure exhaustion is taking over. Maybe I should just take a quick nap. I liked this part, because I really enjoyed the artistry of your descriptions on the guys body shutting down as it approaches death.

*BulletB* Plot *CheckB* Please allow me to explain how we normally determine plot for short stories. We read the title and the description and then read the story to see how confused we get. To be honest your description doesn't match your story. What real fun is it to die before your time. The point I want to make is if your writing for the fun of it, the description is cool. If your writing to get noticed or published you really want to make it the selling point of this story. This is your moment to shine as an artist. You stayed true to your plot and title with the suicide.

*BulletB* Characters *CheckB* You know I actually liked meeting this poor man. I didn't like his boss either. But his wife leaving and not learning much for the reason of why she turned on him. This would have enriched the story. It would have really shown us why this impact on his life was so hard to take. I can take the sons position but without knowing really why his mother left dad. You don't know if the son is on mom's side or why he hates his father. Parents you did well there a lot of times they only think of themselves. Especially in today's times.

*BulletB* Setting *CheckB* You did well on telling us where we were at and what we are doing at each place. You did a great job on this.

*BulletB* Dialog *CheckB* You told this story as first person so it was all dialog. Example: "My wife, who told me she never wants to see me again. She told me she could never love a man like me, no matter how much better I got. My parents, who wouldn't even speak to me anymore." I actually liked the story and you did an amazing job on a lot of the descriptions.

*BulletB* Presentation *CheckB* Now the part that I use to point out to you something most of us don't think about. If your just writing for fun you should ignore this part. If your interested in getting published you should look at that run together mess of text. By creative use of indents and line spacing between paragraphs marks the difference between the pros and novice. I found being a published profession and a novice is an attitude. A pro always presents his work as a professional would. Think about it, what would you rather read a massive blob of text, or something that resembles a book in looks and appearance?
