I'm extremely sensitive to sulfites so I shy away from wine. But since I'm an avid reader, I thought I'd give it a go. I'm happy with my 6 out of 10. Do you know what would pair great with this quiz? An article! I homeschool teens, so I test their attention with quizzes all the time 🀣
Anyway, cute quiz. Keep writing!

This is a great little poem that really says a lot in so few words. Not only is it relevant to current affairs, but this is a statement people need to hear more often. I like your use of the prompt word and you've stuck to the form. Also, for some reason, when these poems are written 6-6-6-6, they seem more appealing to me. Who knows, I'm a little different πŸ™ƒ Keep up the good work and good luck in the contest!

I love this so much! Reading it sent me into a laughing fit because I can totally relate to this entire letter. Especially Just, please, don't tell my kids. They wouldn't understand. Excellent job!

I've been toying with the idea of a "classified" contest, so I'm glad you picked this prompt. Plus, I was wondering what kind of job would require a leprechaun. *Laugh* Job well done! Thank you for playing Bingo Blitz!

You've done a great job with this prompt. I especially like the last paragraph. It helps make it sound like an actual letter. Well, as much as it can with Dracula being the employee. Plus, it doesn't like such a bad deal after all *Laugh*
Thank you for playing Bingo Blitz!

Review of Thank You...

Rated: 18+ | (4.5)
Since we're both doing the "I Write in 2020" Activity, and I just posted one of my entries right after your post: TA-DA.. here I am! First, let me say that I am not a professional. This review is just a personal opinion that I am sharing with you. If anything in this review is deemed unhelpful, promptly ignore it and go about business as usual..

FIRST IMPRESSION: Oh boy, I haven't my entry yet! Let's see what the competition looks like this year.

LIKES: There's not much to dislike about this acrostic. You've clearly shown how much you value this website and have some strong word choices. I tend to struggle with this form and it ends up looking like a first grader wrote it *FacePalm* But you've done a wonderful job!

GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: Nothing jumped out at me.

SUGGESTIONS: None from me.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, you've created a great piece. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Good luck in the contest!

This review is just a personal opinion that I am sharing with you. If anything in this review is deemed unhelpful, promptly ignore it and go about business as usual..

FIRST IMPRESSION: This is a first for me. I don't think I've come across redaction poetry here before.

LIKES: There's not to much to dislike. Your choices on what to blackout and what to keep seem well thought out. I tend to be more impulsive and end up with something that resembles a poem. You have left a moving tribute.

GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: Nothing jumped out at me.

SUGGESTIONS: None from me.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, you've created a great poem. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Good luck in the contest!

Review of Helping hand  
In affiliation with I Write  
Rated: E | (4.5)
Since we're both doing the "I Write in 2020" Activity, and I just posted one of my entries right after your post, ta-da here I am! First, let me say that I am not a professional. This review is just a personal opinion that I am sharing with you. If anything in this review is deemed unhelpful, promptly ignore it and go about business as usual..

FIRST IMPRESSION: I've always enjoyed a good dystopian read, so the title and description intrigue me.

LIKES: It's hard to describe the indescribable, but you're spot on with this line. This is my favorite bit- Something changed overnight, but it is something we can’t see, touch, taste or smell.

GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: Nothing jumped out at me.

STYLE/VOICE: You really set the mood with the opening paragraph. I struggle with the requirements of flash fiction, but you clearly know what you're doing.

SUGGESTIONS: None from me.

FINAL THOUGHTS:Overall, you've created a great little piece. Good luck in the contest!

INSERT TEDIOUS OPINION DISCLAIMER HERE


Ooh, ruwth, you're on a roll! We're going to get caught up for sure! Okay, about this review..now this is going to sound strange, but I feel like I've read it before. I'm not sure if I'm confusing it with another one of your items or if my brain is just confused, but I really think I can remember wondering about how that vision pulled on something inside me. Well, even if I'm just experiencing brain fog in a new way, I like this for reasons I can't really explain. Maybe it's simply because I can identify with the woman crying out to God and I long for the hope she has for herself.

Review of The Shadow Self  
In affiliation with I Write  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Warning- I'm working on being a better reviewer. Please bear with me as I learn.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Ah, poetry. I can't wait to see what you've created.
FORM: I don't think you're using a particular form, but I did notice a lot of end rhymes that work well. I'm not sure if you you intended internal rhymes, but those sound natural.
GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: I generally assume poetic license if I do spot any issues.
STYLE/VOICE: You invoked bittersweet memories from my past. Well done.
SUGGESTIONS: This is too good for suggestions.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, you've created a great little poem. Thank you for sharing your talent and good luck in the contest!

Review of Ace in the Hole  
In affiliation with I Write  
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
Warning- I'm working on being a better reviewer. Please bear with me as I learn.

FIRST IMPRESSION: It's been a while since I've reviewed a short story, so I'm happy my post followed yours. The unassuming title combined with a rating of 18+ intrigues me. The only genre you have listed though is "contest". I highly recommend you add two more. Not only will it give readers more of a peek, but it will also allow your story to be found more often.

FORM/PROMPT: I'm not sure what contest this is written for or if there's a prompt, so I can't say much.

GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: Nothing jumped off the screen and slapped me in the face, so any issues with mechanics are probably small.

STYLE/VOICE: I felt a mysterious presence right from the start. The casual tone and playful mood fit nicely.

SUGGESTIONS: None. I liked this short story. You pulled me in from the beginning and held my attention throughout. I enjoy open endings like this one. It's a tease to entice the reader to let their imagination wander. It also makes me curious as to what the author pictured at the time.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, you've crafted a good little piece. I look forward to reading more of your work one day. Thank you for sharing your talent and good luck in the contest!

I don't review many blog posts, so this is another perk of participating in I Write. I have to say you outdid yourself with this response to the prompt. You chose to answer with a heartfelt poem that showcases your talent and spirit.

"crystal tones
reverberate clear and strong"


Those words really stand out to me. I can't really describe why, but I love it.

I don't review many blog posts, so another perk of participating in I Write! Let's see, the title is definitely appropriate and you nailed the prompt, so well done. Having an autoimmune disease has always kept me careful, but now I have to fight the urge to Lysol strangers that get too close. Also, I think you're right on the mark about which part is more awkward. I try to mind my own business, but I also enjoy a good show. The internal struggle is tough! Thank you for sharing your view with us!

As a fellow participant of I Write, it's my pleasure to review this piece. I'm not sure why, but the Story Poem contest intimidates me, so I've never entered. This poem is very touching and your love for God shines through brilliantly. Keep up the great work and good luck in the contest!

I was poking around your port looking for an item worthy of the awardicon you won and the title caught my interest. As a fan of essays and articles, I had to dive in for a closer look. I was not disappointed. You did a wonderful job of telling your story in a clear and concise way with the right balance of emotion and fact. On the technical side, there are a few words and a phrase or two that I'd remove for clarity, but that's just me. Overall, you've written a piece that definitely deserves the awardicon.

Review of Perfection  
In affiliation with The Royal Court  
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
First, let me say that I am not a professional. This review is just a personal opinion that I am sharing with you. If anything in this review is deemed unhelpful, please discard.

FIRST IMPRESSION: I came across this item on the "Read and Review" page. Honestly, I only clicked on it because I misread your handle. 🀣 I thought it was a play on Cthulhu and wanted to see what you created. But hey, I'm here now!

LIKES: Two things, actually I like the use of repetition. It helps to drive home the point and works well here. Next, the F-bombs. Too often writers are afraid to use profanity, but I think that they are just like any other word. If you can use it correctly, you should. If not, learn how to use it correctly.

GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: Punctuation is subjective in poetry, but I didn't notice any issues that screw up the poem.

STYLE/VOICE: My favorite thing about this piece is the raw honesty with which you expose yourself. I've met writers that pretended to be revealing themselves because they were too...insecure, shy..I don't know, whatever to be vulnerable. (Unless of course, this poem has nothing whatsoever to do with you. In that case, well done for conveying such emotion!)

SUGGESTIONS: My only suggestions are not with the actual poem. First of all, ignore the one-star rating that other asshole left. I have my ratings turned off because of crap like that. A reminder to add a third genre. It will help your work be seen more often and by a wider audience. The only other suggestion is to add a cover photo. If you don't have one of your own to use, the SM has uploaded a shitload of pictures for us to use.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, you've crafted an emotional poem that tugs at something deep inside me. I can't wait to see more of your portfolio.

a little fun

FIRST IMPRESSION: Boy, oh boy, I'm behind with this activity! Thankfully, I took notes on the entries as they were cleared. πŸ˜‰ Due to the sheer number of items the judges are considering, I probably won't be able to offer many in-depth reviews until after the judging is complete.

LIKES: First, I'd like to say that it has been a pleasure to watch you work your way through Wonderland. I'm not sure I would have made it to the end. This entry is a great way to start the game. I especially appreciate the honesty you show when listing your expectations.

GRAMMAR/PUNCTUATION: Nothing jumps off the page at me.

STYLE/VOICE: From the entries I've seen so far, I can tell that this excursion has started to help you amplify your voice find your style. It can take many years for a writer to recognize their strengths and this is certainly a good start.

SUGGESTIONS: Nothing pops into my head.

FINAL THOUGHTS: I'm glad you decided to join, and stick around, after all. Kiya is known for her intense activities, but I've found being pushed out of my comfort zone isn't too brutal. Most of the time. I hope you've enjoyed your trip through Wonderland as much as we've enjoyed watching it.

Review of Hog Tales  
In affiliation with The Royal Court  
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
First, let me say that I am not a professional. This review is just a personal opinion that I am sharing with you. If anything in this review is deemed unhelpful, please discard.

Although I was born and raised in Texas, my roots are deeply planted in Arkansas. So, of course, I had to take a peek when I saw the title and cover photo. It's been a while since I've come across any longer items that excite me, but this did the trick. I think you've got a great idea here and I hope you keep coming back to it until Hog Tales is perfection. It's funny and relatable, a great combination. Since I'm short on time, I only read the first chapter and briefly scanned the rest. Let me say I will definitely be back to give a proper review of "On Campus" and read the rest.
