I absolutely loved this story. I had no difficulty following the names that you chose for the weather, time passing and the change of seasons.
Very well written, *BigSmile*

Hi Bubblegum,
I found this piece of extremely interesting information in your port. I enjoyed it very much and you're right one can learn something new everyday. I am, however, a bit embarrassed. *Blush* I don't have an excuse and I live out here next to The Mojave Desert. I really enjoyed this and found it very interesting and well written.
Thank you for sharing,
Kristina

Hi Tina,

I came across this short story and I absolutely love it. Perhaps you could lengthen it and make a kitten the main character and show his life growing up, how he feels about crossing human paths, or perhaps he is next in line to rule and wants to conduct the Black cat kingdom differently?

There is so many possibilities.
The story line is great and I see no errors.
This is great, keep up the good work.

Congratulations on Third Place! *BigSmile*

Review of Saving Sadie  
Review by Kristina ~
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
Hello Clarebo! I found your story on the Hub page under New Statics. I really enjoyed reading it and hope you find this feedback useful.


*FlowerY* Overall Impression:

I am not sure where to begin here. I thought this story was very well written. It draws the reader in from the start, with a strong grip that won't loosen until the very end. I loved the way that it evoked very strong emotions. I cried at the beginning when those men were abusing Sadie and about to have her kill the smaller dogs. I held my breath as Meg was fighting them off to get the dogs and I let out a sigh of relief when she got away—and that was just the beginning. I did feel what Meg was feeling all the through.
Extremely well done!

*FlowerY* Plot:
You wrote plot very effectively. It was easy to follow and gripping.

*FlowerY* Style and Voice:
Your style is very very good and the tone of voice matched what happening in each scene.

*FlowerY* Scene/Setting:
Setting was excellent. It was easy to visualize what and where things were happening. It accented the characters and the story.

*FlowerY* Characters:
Well developed and believable.

*FlowerY* Dialogue:
Smooth, fit the characters, and easy to follow.

*FlowerY* Grammar and Mechanics:
No errors noted

*FlowerY* Suggestions:
I can't offer any. You did a beautiful job writing this story. Will there be more?

*BigSmile* Thank you for sharing your story. Write on! *BigSmile*

Hello! I found your story on The Review Requests Page. I enjoyed reading it and hope you find this feedback useful.


*FlowerY* Overall Impression:

It was very easy for me relate to this story, being from Southern California. I understand about the "crowd group" (gangs) being over abundant here. Though they are everywhere, So. Calif. has an over abundance. It is not uncommon for knifings and gun shot wounds to happen every week. I nicked named it the local Reunion of The Knife and Gun Club." when I worked as a surgical nurse in the county hospital. One learns quickly who is safe to trust and those to stay away from.

*FlowerY* Plot:
You presented your plot ( events) very nice and they were quite organized as they unfolded to build interest.

*FlowerY* Style and Voice:
The tone of voice was very good and the story pace was excellent. You started out in a slow pace and quickened when the boy was thrown from the car; then slowed it down again at towards the end as the story resolved itself.

*FlowerY* Scene/Setting:
Excellent! It very easy for me to visualize where things were happening.

*FlowerY* Characters:
Well developed, easy to relate to and realistic.

*FlowerY* Dialogue:
There was none, however, none was needed.

*FlowerY* Grammar and Mechanics:
No errors noted

*FlowerY* Suggestions:
Perhaps sometime, you could plug in some fictional names and build a longer piece.
This story has merit.

*BigSmile* Thank you for sharing your story. Write on!

Review of Competition Entry  
Review by Kristina ~
Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Hi Steven,
I came across your entry, and I read your essay. I enjoyed reading it very much. I became so engrossed in it that I had to read it twice. I also was able to feel your emotions and pain come through my computer and somehow you had a glimpse into my life, and you were writing about me because I've had similar thoughts, experiences and feelings throughout my life.

This was very well written. No errors noted,

Review of Nowhere, U.S.A.  
Review by Kristina ~
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hi Angus,

I came across your story under the Ribbons section of the Hub. I really enjoyed reading it. I thought it was very well written.

Your description of the Mojave Desert is as accurate as it can be. I am very familiar with it. I live in Bakersfield, CA. I found myself engrossed in this story. I thought for a minute I was going to end up in Calico Ghost Town up near the Nevada border.

Characters were great.
Nor errors in punctuation noted.
Plot intriguing and easy to follow.

Great Job!

Hi JJ,
I found your Outine on the Hub page, and I think that this Outline is a good starter gate that you need for Character Development. I like to develop mine in great detail. I like to feel that I know them so well that I can anticipate their reaction to any given situation. It is the characters that tell the story.

I know, I know, at times I think my family are convinced that I am off in a third world because they have caught actually talking to my characters about the story.

I have two links that I made and would like to share with you, and you are certainly welcome to use them.

Review of The shelter  
Review by Kristina ~
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hi,
I am Kristina and I came across your story The Shelter in the Plug Column. First I want to say; I hope there is more of this story coming. It was very well written, and kept me wanting to more and what happened to Sam during the night in the shelter.

I also loved the touch of the English slang. My mother-in-law was from England, and it has been awhile since I've heard it.

Keep up the good work,
Happy Writing,
Kristina

Hi Harry, I just wanted to say that I thought your poem was well written. Though I don't agree with many of your points illustrated, I will defend your right to have them. I find fault on both sides and it is a sad situation that I see our country in. I don't see one side having more rights than the other.

Review of James Comey  
Review by Kristina ~
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hi, you and I are on the same side and possibly the same death warrant list.

I find all this quite unreal. I have a hard time believing those that "We the People" trusted to protect and serve us and this great country of ours could screw us so much and so bad. But then, if you stop and tag on the name "Clinton"—no further explanation needed.

If you take the Attorney General Lynch ( name is appropriate to what is happening to the American people) and Comey, both of whom I believe were bought and paid for,—no further explanation needed.

These are sad times indeed. You are welcome to check out my politics folder in my port.

Oh My God! I hate Wal-Mart too. It took me an hour to stop laughing—I have been there and done that too. I hate it from parking to check-out, let alone arriving home and vowing never to go back.

I loved it and didn't see anything wrong. I love the way that you projected humor mixed with REALITY. Great job!!!

Loved it!
