Review of Halloween party  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (3.5)
What a fun read. Good concept I would love to see some of the musicians who have passed on just for one night in all hallows eve!
The poem seemed to flow well and was easy to read. The storyline was fun and imaginative.

Pretty good. The scene has been set and the questions have been placed on the table. Seems everybody wonders what the other is doing or thinking. Is it human nature to want what we don't have? From experience and through getting older I have learned that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
I enjoyed the read. keep up the good work.

Review of For My Child  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (4.0)
well written, I have had strained relations with my family in the past and just when I think everything has worked itself out something else comes up, where mom is pushing my buttons or bringing up the past. I know resentment and anger is not the way to live. I like what you said, God forgives and so should we. Thank you for sharing such a deep subject. My prayers are with you that Gods will be done in your situation as well as mine. It does give me comfort to know I am not alone.

Review of Fade Into Memory  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (4.0)
Such a comforting poem about the changes of the seasons and nature in general. Yes I too love those summer nights and extended hours of warmth and daylight but do long for the cooler weather. I can hear the crackle of the fireplace and taste those seasonal treats that wintertime brings. Thanks for sharing such a great piece. Write On.

I could easily tell what was going on the story. I followed it well. The font was nice too, and the bolder print and spacing. Good job keep writing

Review of Sally Feathers

Rated: 13+ | (3.0)
very strange, but I read on questioning what was going to happen next. there were some parts of the story that was hard to follow. I got lost during the shooting Trinas boyfriend where did he come from? and sally shot him why? good description and you painted a picture of the school and the people in it.

As a native of West Texas we didn't have squirrels growing up but as I have gotten older they have become more populous in my area. Not sure if they came in with the big archetects bringing the oak trees from other places, or just natural migration. I certainly enjoy watching them and appreciate their survival skills.

I could see your poem reflecting the survival and the nature of these bushy tailed critters.

Thank you for sharing.

I like the flow and the storyline. I appreciate the beginning of a friendship, then romance forms and perhaps they just remain friends in the end.

I enjoyed reading this piece. It gave some helpful ideas in a very simple setting. Writing about not so big things seems to be a good idea, I love the details. The candy wrapper. Good technique.

Review of There Was a Time  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (4.0)
nice poem, gave me a lot to ponder, I like the visuals, "You formed in the station lights" and "Under the crooked streetlamp"

I have never been on a train but I believe it to be romantic. Or maybe sad depending if one was coming or going..

I see the tracks you speak of "hammers and ties laid by dead hands of men"
I personally follow the western genre most of all and think of the Chinese, and slaves building the tracks out west to a new land and a new world.

wow, what a great ending. surprised, but grateful the officer followed his training. daughter or not the terrorist was in the wrong and the officer did his duty to save more innocent lives. It was a well written and believable story. I enjoyed reading it.

Review of Grave Warden  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (4.0)
What a nice sonnet to those who may have otherwise been forgotten. I often walk around an empty graveyard and wonder who these people may have been, what they were like. Does anyone care or come to visit them? Your story was well written, and easy to follow. I could relate and read it to its entirety.

Enjoyed the storyline.. The hunting dog,the outlaw, the buildup through the sign, the store, and the saloon. Good dialogue. I found humor, and found the story believable.

Review of Cowboy Basics 101  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (4.0)
Ha! certainly some things I suppose I always took for granted. I am an avid western movie watcher and reader, and hopefully a writer some day. I like to call myself a cowboy, but just wearing the hat doesn't make me one I know. I feel like your piece was well written, I found it humorous, but packed with good information as well. I did watch one of the Young Guns however where the bad guy went to the outhouse and was shot by Billy the Kid, while on the potty.. so I guess they did go on occasion. They ate Pheasant way out in Lincoln New Mexico where I don't believe one has ever lived.. Guess that's why they had to go digest.. anyway enough of my ramblings this is about you not me.. Thanks for the smile.

Review of The midnight eyes  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (4.0)
"set out for way to the far away" what a powerful statement. Travel to the unknown. Whether Pioneers on a wagon train, or an immigrant on a great sailing ship. What lies ahead? Will things be better or stay the same? "set out for way to the far away" has my mind wandering to those places I have never been. A bucket list full of new and exciting sight and sound. Is the grass greener on the other side? One may never know unless they travel over the great wall.
This short simple poem is encouraging and strong.


*Gold* My review has been submitted for consideration in "Good Deeds Get CASH!.

I like the storyline and I can feel the rumbling of the rail as the train passes, I can hear the chug chug of its engines. the colors you described in the beginning set the tone.. calming and peaceful.

Review of The War  
Review by Cody Wayne
Rated: E | (3.0)
I like the storyline, but to be honest it is a little hard to read. the sentences seem to run on and the lines somewhat repeat themselves. injection, smoke, blood. finding the gun seemed sort of random in the middle of the tale, "enough to keep me alive." perhaps could be changed to use it in defense.. it isn't going to save you from the injection you have already received.. keep working on it looking forward to seeing more. thanks.

like the dialogue, something I'm having trouble in with my writing. Descriptions time and place come easy, but how do two people carry on a simple conversation? I thought you showed talent in the conversation between Melody and Caleb. I knew what was going on in the rest of the story based on their speaking. thank you for a job well done.
