Review of Mentors

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your poem.

*Exclaim* Hi Rhychus! I found your poem on the 'read and review' list.

What an interesting contest. It sounds fun and easy for everyone. You might consider adding a link to the contest under your poem, so we can all enjoy it, and see what the theme was. I noticed, for example, you have one word highlighted in your poem. Perhaps a little might be mentioned about that word.

Great presentation! I like the clean look and the way you centered the poem.

The title goes well with the poem, which talks about how well the manners of minors can be improved with mentoring. Great work and good luck in the contest.

Happy WDC Celebration week!

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your poem.

*Exclaim* Oh my gosh, what a pretty bird! I never heard of a Grackle, so I learned something new here.
I love birds, so I'm a bit envious that you have this one living on your property. *Bigsmile*

Nice work with this one, Jeannie. I was drawn in by your cute brief introduction and cover image. You certainly found the perfect image to complement your great poem.

I enjoyed reading all of your stanzas, which had me imagining the little birds building a nest and raising their babies. It must be fun to watch them grow. I felt that you covered the entire experience well in your poem.

I liked that you centered the poem under a pretty image. It looks great!

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your fun poem.

*Exclaim* (((Itchybarn))) So great to read a poem which you wrote!
I absolutely smiled while I read each and every stanza! *Bigsmile**Delight*

What an awesome presentation!
I liked that you chose red font to nicely complement the redish ladybug cover image.

My favorite poems are those that rhyme. Your rhyme scheme flowed very smoothly, which added to the fun experience of reading your poem.

I also liked that your poem told a story and included factual information about the little bugs. Your readers will learn about their colors, what they look like, and about how they hate to be kept in cases!

I thought it was a nice touch to end at the beach. It drew attention back to the title.

Thanks for sharing your entertaining story. *Smile*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your story.

*Exclaim* Oooh, what a captivating story! I liked how it began with a dream.

Maybe you'll be tempted to write a chapter book of it someday, so we can read about Elsa's experience at the Las Vegas strip!

I enjoyed reading your story. Your readers can feel the hurt and frustration which Elsa endures from her bully husband and lonely life.

I did come across just a few small typos.

Here you wrote: " "No!" She said aloud, setting straight up in bed." sitting straight up...

Here, "Elsa sit up in bed and check the clock" ...sat up in bed and checked the clock.

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your tribute item.

*Exclaim* Hi Elisa! I found your great item in the random reads list.

I was glad to stumble across it because it was nice to reminisce contests, names of WDC members and items which brought back memories - especially now, during our site's 19th anniversary celebration.

The brief intro is unique and eye-catching.
I like the fun atmosphere and occasional humor in your item. It's also presented nicely, with a very organized look. Gosh, good for you to have kept up with it for so many years!

Just so you know, there are a few invalid items. We can't help having those pop up from time to time, as people come and go (...and so do their great items!)

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your story.
Thank you for bidding on the "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group package at "The Summer Time Auction


*Exclaim* I was intrigued by your story because of the idea that certain words could not be used anywhere in it. The cover image added to the wonder of what your story would be about.

I thought the first paragraph was a perfect way to set the stage with the girl's stewing anger before she entered the place.

I loved this line: I needed to calm down before I went inside to get Jimmie. If I didn’t, I might be the one in handcuffs.
So funny, but it seemed so true! It added to make your character very believable and real.

This sentence didn't read right to me: The phone rang and he quickly picked it up to assist to next wronged woman needing help. I think, 'to', should be changed to, 'the'.

I would have liked to hear more from Jimmie about his explanation, but all in all, I think you succeeded in focusing on the girl's anger, which was what the task of the story was about.

I loved the names, by the way. Kimmie and Jimmie are so cute! *Smile*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your fictional poem.

*Exclaim* Elle, thanks once again for bidding and winning on the "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group 'Tea Party' package. Your generosity is most appreciated!

Wow! I could imagine a good old fashioned, home style Christmas for sure in this poem.
I especially enjoyed the sights and scents of your descriptions. You successfully wrote in a way that can awaken the senses. My favorite was the aroma of cinnamon, mixed with the other scents in the home...Pine, roasting foods, etc.

I normally hold a hot mug of coffee to warm my hands in the winter. I liked that you wrote that in, as a mug of mulled wine. We really get the feeling of cold and warmth of the home.

We also had a sense of a loving environment, although you didn't come right out and say it, which was nice. People enjoyed getting and receiving thoughtfully wrapped gifts while listing to the popping of the fireplace and awaiting the cooking food.

The ending was a sort of twist, as we realize the narrator never experienced these things herself.

Wow, again! After reading the author's note which you added nicely in a dropnote, I learned that you wrote this without using several words...Forbidden in this challenge. One of the words was, 'the'! Your writing in this poem flowed so smoothly. I can imagine how difficult it might have been not to use the word, 'the', even once. Excellent work. *Smile*

Review of Summer Storm

*Thumbsup**Thumbsup**Thumbsup**Thumbsup**Thumbsup**Thumbsup**Thumbsup*


Congratulations for winning our group's
"WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group
package from
"Season Tickets


*Note4* FIRST IMPRESSION: I felt this is a pleasently descriptive poem about a summer's rain.

*Exclaim* THOUGHTS: I was happy that I came across this really pretty poem. For me, it was enjoyable to read. Each and every stanza boasted it's own expressive descriptions.

I always find that summer's storms are the strongest. Those are the ones with thunderous noises, bright flashes of light, and lots of visual effects! I thought you successfully captured all of that, and more, in your summer storm poem.


*Check2*ERRORS: Once again, I can't help you in this area. You wrote this one well, with no errors at all that I can see.

*Star*FAVORITE PART: I really liked your poetic words and stunning descriptions. You sparked many of the senses here, as we hear the rumbles of the storm, see the blazing colors, feel the drenching rain, and all else.

Good job thinking of all of those 'ing' words for the second and third line of each stanza! That played a very important part in adding uniqueness to this nice poem.

I liked how you opened with what was about to happen, and ended with the sun shining through.

In my mind, I can see everything which is going on, and I can imagine being one of those people inside watching the fierce stormy scene. Well done.


*Idea*SUGGESTIONS: The first and third line of each stanza doesn't rhyme throughout all of your stanzas, except for in the second stanza, with past and fast. It's really no big deal, but in a near first impression, since it's near the beginning, it almost looked like you meant for those lines to rhyme, and ended up not rhyming the rest. I would change the third line to something like, 'The summer storm rolls in now...'. This would give the beautiful poem a more uniform look.

Other than that...How about a storm image to compliment your poem? ...Centering the poem...Blue font...

package

*Note4* FIRST IMPRESSION: I found this to be a well written, neutral opinion-poem about politics.

*Exclaim* THOUGHTS: I was almost afraid to click on this one because of the 'Politics' title. I'm glad I did because you offered a calming tone and a soft, neutral feel throughout your poem. I knew that countless amounts of time people voice their passionate opinions about their views, and seem to get frustrated that every single person doesn't feel the way they do. It was a pleasure to read your piece which actually offered 'politics' in a friendly way.

*Check2*ERRORS: I couldn't find any errors. Well done with your proofreading and checking.

*Star*FAVORITE PART: I thought your very last line summed everything up nicely: "Compromise and Unity are key". Sadly, I have no clue how to initiate that, so I try to politely change the subject whenever a neighbor, friend, or relative brings up a political topic. I prefer to talk about dogs and other pets. LOL *Laugh*

Although this is a free verse poem, I liked how it had a structured look of your own, with the same word beginning each stanza, and a uniform look all around. I also liked that each stanza focused on the points you were making, such as how sometimes people can be overly dramatic, rude and show tempers.


*Idea*SUGGESTIONS: I really wouldn't change much, except perhaps centering the piece, and maybe adding colored font. 'Just a thought for another day.

Review of Woodpecker

*Thumbsup*Reviewed by NightMaryann *Thumbsup*


*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your poem

*Exclaim* Hi Someone! I enjoyed reading your pretty poem. It reminded me of the sights and sounds of a green, spring day. I often hear the birds outside and the sounds of woodpeckers.

I liked that you took your poem through the journey of the determined woodpecker building her home. We saw the world through what the woodpecker would actually be going through.

She pecked away trying to create that home, despite all of the hardships, such as predators and other dangers. It finally had a wonderful home before the storm arrived, which I thought was a nice, happy ending.

Great choice making the font green, as it adds to the pleasant experience of reading your poem. Nick work! *Smile*

*Thumbsup*Reviewed by NightMaryann *Thumbsup*


*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your cNote item.

*Exclaim* Hi Purple Princess! I couldn't help but give this great item a bright purple awardicon!

I love cNotes, and these are really cute! I like all of them, but my favorite is the last one of the couple with the caption, "There's nothing better than you!"

I'm glad you put the purple image first, because it goes so well with your theme of purple. *Bigsmile*

The introduction writing is a nice touch, and it was a good idea to list three of your other cNote shops.

I normally don't use cNotes which are over 750 gps, but these will be nice to use for special occasions like Valentine's Day.

I hope you eventually complete this shop by adding more of the Romantic cNotes. Great work!

Enjoy the WDC Birthday Celebrations this week! *Delight*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your TV item.

*Exclaim*Hi Typo! I enjoyed the nostalgia of your TV item. Some of those, like Howdy Doody, Sky King and Rin Tin Tin, I've never seen, but I smiled at the memory some of those other ones brought back.

Heck, I still watch the reruns of Star Trek and Bonanza these days! I was just thinking about Happy Days yesterday when my husband and I was a Twilight zone with a very young Ron Howard in it. I think he was in that before he ever landed a role in Mayberry.

I would add a few pictures here and there throughout your story of shows like Captain Kangaroo and Bat Man. Or, why not add in a few popnotes for people who aren't familiar with the shows. The following is an example of a popnote:

Beverly Hillbillies

Thanks for sharing this great item, and have fun this week at WDC's Birthday Celebrations! *Balloongo*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your great poem.

*Exclaim* Hi Meg! You're poem about one of my very favorite birds caught my attention. I've been to Australia three times, and each time I always enjoyed seeing the Kookaburra birds at the parks.

I liked how your poem told a story. I could picture the bird sitting in a tree, waiting for his favorite food to go by. In this case, he finished his breakfast, and was setting up for lunch! *Laugh*

I never thought about what a Kookaburra eats before. I imagined it ate fruit. ...So I learned something from your poem.

I liked how you wrote how they laugh. *Smile*

Your image isn't working, btw. I put one of mine at the bottom of this review. *Bigsmile*

Nice rhyme and fun poem. Have fun this week with the WDC Birthday celebrations! *Smile*

*Thumbsup*Reviewed by NightMaryann *Thumbsup*


*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your short story.

*Exclaim* I thought this was a really creative story for a short fiction.
I could imagine a dull classroom, where students minds get lulled into a half-asleep daydream.

My favorite description was of the carpet of leaves outside the classroom window. I felt that it painted the picture of autumn breezes well.

I wasn't sure how old Clayton was, but I assumed he was a young child. Maybe now that the contest is over, you might add a few more lines to this little story to elaborate more on Clayton's age and the age of the narrator. You might also mention why the narrator was having this daydream. Was he psychic?

Speaking of the contest, it doesn't seem to be in business anymore, so I would remove the link to it, but I would keep the prompt.

Nice work with the descriptions and with putting this creative story together. *Smile*
Have fun at WDC's Birthday Celebrations this week! *Delight*

*Exclaim* What a very wondrous poem this is, Lifelessons. I felt transported right into the magic of the experience.

Everything about this poem was great. I was drawn to it by the fantastic cover image.

As I read each line of the poem, the image came to life. Your descriptions throughout each stanza were perfect for the majestic night sky.

I especially loved the last stanza about the moonbeams. I am fascinated by sunbeams, and I always try to capture them with my camera. The thought of moonbeams and their 'silver strings' was creative and painted the image of what the poem was describing well. Nice work.

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your great Chicken recipe.

*Exclaim* Okay, so I'm sure this is the first time my new puppy experienced watching me laughing out loud at my computer...My five year old Boxer is used to such outbursts. Thanks for making my day! I loved reading your recipe, and if you ever write a cook book, please let me know because, not only would I buy it, but I'd buy several copies to give out as gifts. *Cool*

So, it takes two beers to finish making this dish..*Laugh*

I love the humor throughout. One of my favorite lines: "You can use any kind; your own leftovers, KFC, or that bag of hot wings your gal smuggled out of the restaurant where she works" So funny!!

I liked how easy your recipe is. I was getting hungry reading it. I'm sure it tastes awesome. I might print it out and have my grown kids make it next time they visit. They'll get a kick out of it, and I'll be sure to hide the ketchup but leave a jar of Ragu around instead. *Delight*

Thanks again for sharing. This was a treasure of fun. *Smile*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your summer beach poem.

*Exclaim* Ah, as I type this in my house, I can imagine being on that beach.
The sights and sounds of your well-written poem brought me right to it.

I could imagine a young poet, inspired by the salty air, crashing waves, and damp sand, experimenting with rhyme and beauty with her pen in hand.

You made me wish I were on that beach, feeling the sand on my feet. Great descriptions of what could be going on. The little flowers and steaming soup were great additions, but my favorite was the way it began. The beach dreamed of summer visitors. Very nicely done.

Awesome name of the beach, by the way. ...Crabapple Beach...Is that a real place?

Enjoy your weekend, Joy, and happy dreams of summertime beaches. *Beach*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your poem.

*Exclaim* Hi Pure Sci Fi, and happy anniversary week! *Smile*

I loved your poem. You mentioned that it was your first try at poetry, so I really hope you write more like this sometime. In fact, I thought your poem read just like an epic story poem. You might like to write another one for contests such as this: "A Story-Poem Contest!!!
It's all about story poems, such as yours.

I enjoyed reading through this fantasy tale about the battle in space. Of course, I am a bit partial because I love everything Star Trek! *Laugh*

Your readers can feel the intensity of the ship suddenly being attacked by surprise.
The ship seemed to be still in the darkness of vast space, when the other ship proceeded to fire. I thought that the descriptions of the laser balls of light exploding were a nice effect.

I liked your ending stanza the best. It leaves your reader pondering the situation. We wonder why this could have happened. The ship attacked and it was over as quickly as it began. You succeeded in creating an ending, which keeps your reader thinking about your poem. Nice work. *Smile*

*Exclaim* Hi D R! What a great science fiction story! I loved the title,
and how you revealed what it was at the end. Great way to bring that title right into the story.

You had terrific ideas here. I could picture the masterminded grandfather, and the relationship he had with his grandson -- the only person who would think his ideas were dumb. The old guy found a way to beat death, and really go up to the clouds. *Wink*

This sounds like a story which you might like to build on someday. Nicely done, as it held my attention from the beginning to the end..

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your item.

*Exclaim* Hi Michael! I really loved you inspirational article, so I gave it five stars! I didn't know what to expect when I first started reading it. I thought it was a technology article about how to use photoshop (..which I did find intriguing, by the way. I might have to check it out.) I learned your easy tip about fixing zoo animal pictures. After reading more into the article, I could see that it was an example which could be used for real-life experiences as well.

How often we self-confine ourselves, barred up from making our dreams and ideas a reality. If only we can see how to work around those bars, and perhaps, eliminate them altogether. Your well-written article offers the inspiration needed to succeed.

I also enjoyed the humor which you so effortlessly inserted here and there. For example, I would be the one who messed up the fur on the monkey. LOL
This casual humor added to the enjoyment of the piece.

I did see one typo, where you left out quotation marks before the word, 'really'. Other than that, I think this piece is great! Nice work. *Smile*

So many fun things to look at so far here...I hope you'll remember to watch for signs like these in the future, so you can add more of them. I always take pictures of funny signs,
too, but I never did anything with them. You know I loved to look at these. *Bigsmile*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your fantastic activity.

*Exclaim* Hi Nixie! *Smile* I was going to comment in a email that I recently glanced over, but I can't locate the said email in my pile of vacation batch, so I thought it best to simply give it some stars here. *Bigsmile*

I love the way you have this set up. As usual, so many people showed up to happily donate prizes and you successfully managed to set them all up in a very clear and fun way.
We know from the past, that this event is 'The Big One'. I can see that it only just started, and it's already taken off well.

Gosh, what an amazing turn out for this event. There's such a huge variety of things to bid on. ...Images, fun things in the real mail, Amazon cards, Reviews, tons and tons of all sorts of Merit Badges - including the extremely rare and very NEW Power Badge, Awardicons, and a whole lot more. *Delight*

Aqua's fun and generous donations are truly listed in a clear and well thought out way.

Good job with the brief into. It's always nice to read the dates right up front.

The images, colors, and fun titles are awesome.

Also, I love that trinkets and badges are offered to those who generously give gift point donations.

Nixie, you are very talented, and that talent bursts throughout this entire item. Nice work. I've been starstruck! *Starstruck*

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your item.

*Exclaim*Hello again, Raven! *Smile* I wanted to say a few words about your awesome image while I was still visiting your portfolio.

This one is great! I've added one of my ravens at the bottom of this review. As I already mentioned to you, I do love birds. *Bigsmile*

I like the shadowy look of this image, and you picked the best title to compliment that.

The Raven looks great with the moon background, and your name is in the perfect place. I'm really happy to see that you only just joined our site this month, and already you are comfortable with images. I have a whole port full of them, so you know how much I enjoy images!

*Star*This review contains some of my brief thoughts about your beautiful poem.

*Exclaim*Hi Raven, and welcome to WDC. I love birds, so you're handle caught my attention. *Bigsmile*

Haiku is one of my very favorite poetry forms, and an excellent start to your portfolio. You did this one so well. I believe that you succeeded in telling a whole story in a small space. I could imagion the tiger in the snow from your descriptions.

I liked the words which your chose, and I see that you did justice to the haiku. The form seemed perfect to me. Great job adding a cover image, too. I love it when new members find their way around our site so well. Nice work. *Smile*
