Review of Mom's Craving

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

*Exclaim* Hi Sonali! Here is another review, part of your gift from Good luck Nano'ers! .

Oh my gosh, Sonali!!! Why isn't this story highlighted at the top of your portfolio!! Your father starred in a TV commercial! What a beautiful smiling face he has! Make sure you tell him that I said that. *Bigsmile*

This was a fun story. I love the upbeat stories and poems which you write. I could imagine the happy conversation about the ice cream flavors. I also thought it was very creative to say, favor of a flavor! I always pick chocolate. *Choco*

Did you mean this to actually be a sort of fan fiction of how your dad was in charge of it all? I could feel the excitement of the daughter, as she noticed all of the cameras and people waiting to see her reaction. Of course, the man had Butterscotch and mint ready and waiting! He also generously gave a discount.

What a wonderful story, and a wonderful real-life story, too, which you added above the video. It seemed so nice. You made my day!

Congratulations, by the way, on another winning entry!*Flowerw*

Review of Whether We Ask

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

*Exclaim* Hello again, Sonali. Here's another review as part of your gift from Good luck Nano'ers! .

The topic of weather attracted my attention to this item. I liked the creative title when I saw it - Whether We Ask!

I am so glad that you added a note about what the Pregunta form is. I was about to look it up because I'm not familiar with it, but there it was already thoughtfully placed at the bottom!
I knew that pregunta meant question, as I've been trying to learn Spanish most of my life, but I never knew it to be a form of poetry. Now I know!

I mentioned once before that you could add many of your items to a children's poetry book.
This one would fit right in! I felt that it 'taught' about the weather in a fun, rhyming poem. Why does it rain so / To cool things down, help the plants grow.

Not only did you do an excellent job with the rhyming, but the flow seemed perfect to me.

I thought each answer was perfect for each question. I never imagined clouds dancing. It's such a pretty thought!

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

*Exclaim* Hi Sonali! This is another review as part of your gift from Good luck Nano'ers! .

I was searching your port to find a story to read, and I saw the good professor's name! I thought it was brilliant of you to mix what might be real life with the world of Harry Potter.
Nicely done for sure!

You certainly held my attention from the beginning to the end. What a clever way to get students to behave - tricking each one into believing that they were the secret class monitor.
Great idea to make the message from Professor Sprout in bold font.

Lovely idea that you had your characters get their tasks from fortune cookies at a picnic.
Congratulations, by the way, for winning the contest. I can see why. You kept interest throughout the story from beginning to end.

My absolute favorite part was the magic classes!! *Wand* More trickery! The magic of cooking at least brought about a party. *Partyhatb*

It was a nice idea to add an epilogue. That gave closure to your story in a sweet way and brought about the magic of forgiveness.

*Thumbsup*Reviewed by Maryann *Thumbsup*


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

*Exclaim* Hi Sonali! These reviews are part of your gift from Good luck Nano'ers!

I enjoyed reading this adorable poem! Who doesn't love turtles? *Turtle1**Turtle2*
I could certainly imagine this in a children's book. Sonali, did you ever think of writing a book of poetry for children? I think you have so many wonderful gems to include in it.

I liked the scene you set at the beginning. I could picture the doctor on a well-earned vacation, sitting and resting in the sand with his toes in the water. I must say that I almost gasped when I read that he stayed there when a storm was coming. The seagulls even stayed away from that! As a person who visits Florida often, right away I started thinking about hurricanes! *Shock2*

All was well with the doctor, and, in fact, he had a visit from a very special turtle. Gosh, I see turtles all of the time. I will think of you when I imagine what they might say if they could speak.

I found your many well-written stanzas captivating as the story went on. I could understand the determination that the turtle had in expressing the various pollution, and I could feel his hope in getting this doctor to understand.

What a nice ending! Doctors always display artwork and little framed sayings for their patients to view. I thought it was a nice touch to have him add a sign in the office about what he, himself pondered. Well done.

The rhyme also added to the enjoyment and ease of reading. The font color reminded me of the sea. I would include a picture of a magnificent turtle *Turtle1*
at the bottom, or maybe simply a row of turtle emojis. *Bigsmile*

*Exclaim* Hi Amy! Wow, what a fun poem! I think the cute emojis you included throughout the poem added to the 'happy feeling' atmosphere. I certainly smiled while I was reading it, and yes, I do have my coffee, too. *Bigsmile*

I liked how you wrote a sampling of the many different types of coffee to be enjoyed. My favorite is the caramel ribbon crunch. It made me want to have one right now! (Maybe tomorrow *Wink*)

The last stanza about enjoying coffee all the different ways brought the poem to a nice close. As in your title, Coffee is, indeed, the Spice of Life. *Smile*

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

*Exclaim* Hi Lonewolf, and thanks for putting together this nice cNote item.
I love the coffee theme, and just looking at these images makes me want more coffee. I always have two in the morning, so I guess I'll wait! *Wink*

I thought you chose great titles for each of the images, and the image with the teddy bear is so cute!!

The prices seem a bit over-caffeinated to me, but maybe my mind is still in the old day prices.

I had the impression that the fee benefited the Coffee House, so maybe that might have been in the heading under the image there. Other than that, I think they are great! *Laugh*

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

*Exclaim* Hi Shadow! I loved the variety of cNotes in your collection. The theme is one of my very favorites - coffee! c[_]

I absolutely loved the blue one with the cat. I will have to remember that one when I need to send out something unusual. I thought the saying with it was purrrrrrfect! *Laugh*

The cozy one was my next favorite. It would make a nice cNote for the winter days ahead.

The prices seemed a bit high, but that's just me. It goes to a good cause after all, so it's no big deal.

If I could change anything at all, it might be the font you picked in the item heading (under the image). Was it impact? I thought it was a bit hard to see. I would go with bold and something else, but it's just a suggestion.

Review of EYES OF A POET,  
Review by Maryann
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (5.0)
*Thumbsup*Reviewed by Maryann *Thumbsup*


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

*Exclaim* Bravo, Penelope! You succeeded in presenting the feelings one sense when they read a poem. Good poetry opens up all of the senses and allows the reader to experience what they sometimes miss in real life.

How often does a person rush past blowing leaves, colorful singing birds, and other beauties life has to offer while getting into their cars to be on their way? They might have many thoughts in their head - traffic, work, school, etc., but no thoughts of their wondrous surroundings.

You expressed how readers can remember and ponder these wonders through reading the poet's works. These works, I think, take a person away for a moment, to imagine.

Very nicely done, smooth-flowing poem. Enjoy the WDC festivities this week! *Delight*

*Exclaim* Hi LeJen. I hope you are enjoying the festivities of our site Anniversary week. *Smile*

What a lovely poem you wrote! I had never come across a poem in the Gogyohka form, so I was happy to see it.

It's as pretty and delicate as a haiku though a bit different. Perhaps if you get a chance and wish to, you might add a little bit about the form for those of us less familiar with Gogyohka.

I liked the words which you chose to paint the picture of the leaves falling. I could imagine in my mind the wispy breezes of autumn, blowing a leaf this way and that way. You said so much in a small space - we feel (the cool winds), we see (the naked trees and drifting leaves), and it causes us to imagine and ponder. Nice work.

*Exclaim* Hi Amy. I hope you are having fun during our WDC Anniversary week. I certainly had fun reading your story. *Smile*

I thought the prompt and the prompt prize were interesting and creative. I also felt that you showed creativity in the story you designed for that prompt.

I always enjoyed Sherlock Holmes and similar mysteries. You found a way to write one all from the number, '22'! Nice work!

I loved the conversation between the resident and the man who knocked on the door. Gosh, he was so confused, wasn't he! *Laugh* What great ideas you had!!

The best part was the way you chose to end it. He lost something alright - his marbles!! I'm glad I came across your fun story. Have a great week!

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

*Exclaim* Oh Anni! This story is so cute and funny! I was entertained from the beginning to the end!

Your flawless writing made it seem easy to write a story entirely in dialogue, but I'm suspicious that it's not easy as you made it seem. You simply did a smooth job of it.

The part which made it so fun was the time points throughout the story, and the surprise ending! Poor little fish no longer has a clue!

I felt it seemed believable. I could imagine a little kid insisting on a parent to buy a certain fish in a pet shop. Now, we have an idea about what goes on in the little fish head, and how easily they might forget!

Enjoy the festivities of our WDC Anniversary week! *Laugh*

*Exclaim* Hi Snow, and happy WDC Anniversary week! I thought I'd stop by during our Power Party Raid!

I enjoyed reading this piece and I felt it was very pretty. I liked how you mentioned, that humanity, the sentient life form on Earth, was created to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization. Great philosophy!

I watch a lot of sci-fi shows, and in those, people are always in awe and wonder of the cosmos. In our own real-world life, many rockets and satellites search the skies. It makes me wonder what humans will find on Mars one day, if anything, and your story leaves me pondering those thoughts. Good job *Smile*

*Exclaim* Hi Johnny! Thanks for fanning me, and I hope you're having a terrific time at our WDC Anniversary Party Week!

Wow! This is very impressive! You are a Canadian Hockey Celebrity for sure. The colorful photos seem like action skating movements at a glance! It's not easy to skate, but of course, you probably skated as well as people walk.

I'm glad you had all of these photos to share, and I think you really did a great job with entering them into this photo album. I noticed it at the top of your port, so I thought I'd stop by. I was glad that I did! I loved the picture of the award and mascotte. The uniforms are a great color, too.

It must have been exciting to tour like that. Thanks for sharing and have fun this week! *Smile*

I haven't posted on an In and Out item in so very long. I forgot how much fun they can be.

You really showed your creativity in this one. Wow! *Shock2* This is truly amazing!
It must have been tedious work to get all of the links needed to make this item work perfectly. The different colors throughout is proof that your hard work was well worth it.

After I posted my short sentence there, I looked to see if the colors really changed. Of course they did! What fun!

I felt that your instructions were clear and added to the great experience of your entertaining item. Thanks for making it for us all to enjoy! *Starstruck*

*Exclaim*Hi Carly and I hope you're having fun on our site Anniversary week!

Thanks for sharing your sweet poem. As I was reading it, I kept thinking that your grandparents would be very proud of you. I wonder if my grandchildren might write such a fond tribute of me someday...

I loved your descriptions of the farm and the farmhouse. I could visualize lush vegetation threatening to take it all back to nature's original form. Very nicely done!

In addition, gosh, it must have been annoying to remember not to use any of those prompt forbidden words in a tribute poem! How tempting that would be for me!! Words such as time, memory, etc. seem like a must for these type of poems. Well done.

I can imagine the love which once flowed inside the house. It was a 'home' after all. Grandpa hung his hat by the door as he entered the house. Dishes were carefully placed on the shelves. Now, only the mind can see these things.

*Exclaim*Wow, what a captivating story! It left me thinking about how things might have been here where I live 50 years ago, and also about how things might be 50 years from now. I got chills just thinking about it all!

I liked how your story started nicely. Samuel and Margery started their new lives together (complete with Margery being carried over the threshold - so sweet an image - I wonder if people do that these days). It sounded as though they had a wonderful life and enjoyed their neighbors.

I didn't know where your story was going, but wow! b Your descriptions of how it all changed at the end were perfect to paint the scene!

...And you left it with a happy ending, which I really loved. After all they've been through, and after all of the changes, they both felt the atmosphere of a happy home. Nice work. Have fun this week! *Smile*

I think you captured the who idea of the holiday, and honored mothers.

I love acrostic poems, and I must say that I think yours was very creative! You wrote something for the punctuation!!! That was so cute!

I liked the presentation as well. The red-colored letters at the beginning of each word really stood out.

This is the line which I enjoyed the most: You're a joy and healing balm. Again, your creativity shined. Thanks for sharing this. I'm glad to have come across it on Mother's Day weekend. *Smile*

*Exclaim* Hi Schnujo! What a fun story! You have great talent as a writer. *Smile*

I was absolutely impressed at how you wrote this story all in dialogue! That's not easy to do, as I know how tempting it might be to add in other types of explanations. You didn't need any of that! Your descriptions were well done all in the dialogue.

What better way to win the heart of a woman with a heart of stone than to present a special, Great Alfred painting! She is pure at heart after all. *Laugh*

I loved the plot, and how this was because her father needed someone to leave his lands to. And the person in the story collected a fee as well. *Wink*

I wouldn't change anything here. One thing which I noticed, though, was that the contest is no longer valid. Maybe take the link out and only leave the contest prompt. And, of course, say that it won in the contest! Big CONGRATS, by the way.

I felt this story was both captivating and entertaining. Thanks for sharing. *Smile*

I want to stay at that Hotel WDC, it sounds like a great place, with a pool, sauna, etc.

The shenanigans and fun were on, in your very fun creativity. I was surely amused, as we search for Robert! I could smell that coffee already! Glad everyone celebrated the good time, and I had a good time reading this and thinking of you! :_)

Now I know why you called them, 'Rowdy Santas'!

Oooh, and this one looks delicious! Italian food is one of my all-time favorites, along with Mexican and Chinese foods. I like the colors in the image, and I can really see the cheese, too. Who doesn't like meatballs! (Well, my daughter will only eat them if they are made with turkey. LOL)

I'm not a big fan of Spaghetti, as I normally share some of it with my shirt! *Laugh*
But I love pasta in general.

I hope you did well in that contest!

I really liked this snowglobe because of it's bright colors. I've seen other snowglobes, and they aren't so colorful. Yours popped nicely.

I liked, also, that it is about Dallas. Living on the east coast all of my life, I've only had the opportunity to visit Dallas a couple of times. Years ago when I first went there, I expected tumbleweeds! LOL I was very pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful and modern city that it is. *Smile*

I liked that you mentioned a saying from your dad. He must be a clever and humorous man.
I think I'll also start wishing on Snow Globes! *Laugh*
Actually, my friend collects them, so I will think of you and mention that saying!

Thanks for sharing.

Your dad has a nice singing voice. Gosh, he is eight-six!!!
It is awesome that his kindergarten teacher taught him this song so many years ago, and he still can remember it and sing it so very well.

I like the introduction you made, both in the audio and written for us to understand. Well, I don't understand the actual singing, but of course, I get the idea.

I thought this was so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. *Smile*

Wow! I am in awe at the poem which you wrote from the simple prompt words, wind blown, statue, fields, wreath, and bottle. Seriously! How were you able to write such a deep, adventurous, fantasy story poem from that! I'm sure others might have ventured into the message in a bottle line - and, by the way, I like how you casually slipped something about that in, but you took your poem to a whole other level!

I liked the addition of prehistoric pterodactyls. They added a captivating excitement to your story poem, especially when it seemed the hero would fall from one of their grips.

It was fun to read from the beginning to the end. The first two lines made me want to continue reading. "Once on a wind blown Pacific plateau, /held in a land that retained long ago. Your ending made me think of a, 'Happily ever after' story. Nice work! *Delight*

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

*Exclaim*Hi Destiny. Nicely written story!

You wrote it in a way that your readers will really have a sense of what the main character is feeling. Gosh, I felt a dislike for the teacher when she singled out the student the way she did. That wasn't nice, though I'm sure she meant well.

I felt the suspense as to what would happen next. You did a great job in not rushing the story, but showing what was going on in that classroom instead.

I didn't know what Asperger was so I had to look it up at the end. Maybe since you mentioned it in the title, you could add a notation about it at the end of the story.

I have a few little suggestions...

I think your story would present better if you skipped a line in between paragraphs or thoughts -- As I am doing in this review, for example.

This line might look better with the use of {i} and {/i} since it is the character's thoughts, and 'to' should be 'too', like this: This. Is. Too. Much.

high way should be highway

my self should be myself

The numbers of counting might be written out so that, for example, 26 could be twenty-six.

Other than those tiny little things, the story was captivating. Good job.
