I AM  (E)
A poem for Brainstormers Group.
#1889457 by Princess Megan Rose


I get impressions of the first person in this as a mystery as to who it is to. The piece is pyschologically intriquing as a poem. It hangs it all out, I think. When you speak from positive terms I liked it best. I only wondered at the first line of the second stanza. Who are you speaking to? I hope you are not speaking of yourself, I doubt that line. However, it may be that the rest of the poem can stand alone amongst those of what I call, reality poems. Could this be about someone at work who is having problems and might identify with the problematic side of the poem? It makes you think. It doesn't just glamourize. I enjoyed it.

No new suggestions. It works just fine.

Christmas, First Memorable One and 1971   (E)
My first memorable Christmas. My Christmas of 1971.
#1909275 by Princess Megan Rose



FIRST IMPRESSIONS: *Check2* Hello, my good friend. I wish you Greetings today on this blessed Christmas. It is a pleasure to see that you have prepared such an indepth and detailed account of memoirs of Christmas. The celebrations spills from the moments of what might be said to be a darling year to choose for me to think and mull.

GRAMMAR,STYLE,SYNTAX, SPELLING: *Check2* I am fond of your work and can't get enough of confetti and sweet riches in this piece as great material to explain not only a year in your childhood but, too, a testimonial checksheet for a new year in '13 to place wishes over. I can picture it all in the fab graphics and give Angel credit for doing your web work in such a professional and well-related way. You are thorough here. You enjoy life and it shows even at a young age as you see more than just toys at Christmas. Your work is never boring. It is filled with possibilities. It makes you want to cry out, "What work! How cautious a job it was!" No spelling mistakes. Your style is there with longer sentences, you do not usually chop them as much as I and eventually they work out as good grammatical sense to them.


SUGGESTIONS:*Check2* None. How entertaining! How pertinent for a Christmas Holiday piece!


A LAST COMMENT: *Check2* Let me share with you the blessings of Christmas with love and cheer. You are a winner! Without that, I can tell you, there would be no excellent material to review on this day. When I say adeiu to the festivities for another year, I will recall some similar warm and touching moments and smile about your wholesome goodness in what you can say so well. *Bigsmile*

 A Heart's Home - Chapter One  (13+)
Work in progress.
#1213227 by Steffy J. The Writer



IMPRESSIONS: *Check2* I very much was satifisfied with your first draft and its possibilities. You have names of characters that can really be "someone" as you work with this. I liked your barn scene as you looked back and recalled it. The love-angle is there if it assumes a more deeper expression. Then that last couple lines. Right into a plot that sounds exciting. That is what I liked most about the piece, far-reaching possibilities that could really add up.

GRAMMAR,SPELLING.SYNTAX: *Check2* No spelling mistakes I could see. Good content. Current affairs make this a very viable chapter.

SUGGESTION:*Check2* Keep at it. It will turn around.

PANACEA  (18+)
2012 NaNo novel, first draft finished. Literary fiction
#1900559 by Joy
. Good morning!


Impressions: I was very delighted to hear of your novel "Panacea" and was forthright about reading what you had here. I think you are so talented, Joy. The characters are so mature and the "look" contemp. You are truly hip. I am caught up with all the dialogue. Why don't you combine it with that poetic flair which is only yours and make it full-bodied and get serious about publishing. I hope you don't take this the wrong way: have you got something out there I can buy? I just love your style of detailed story-telling. Do you take your characters from true life or is it entirely and whole-heartedly fiction?

My Wants And Needs  (E)
What words could I say to tell of the love you have given me.
#908186 by Kings
this morning. Good morning.

IMPRESSIONS: Such a wonderful tribute. I'm sure your wife will enjoy this one. I can only say that such words of endearment are good signs of a personal best in a person. When I think on what we can say about "our loves" I find deeper words are a solution to melancholy and depressing sentiment. I wonder now since I have been at WDC for over ten years what is in store for me. I hope I catch the optimism of the best of our writers. You, being in the Romance Newsletter this week, are rated high here and what else I have read from you. Just one opinion. Hopefully a viable one.

SUGGESTIONS: None. It is a sincere and excellent poem.

Halloween Dracula FFW Newsletter 2012  (13+)
This newsletter is about Dracula.
#1898284 by Princess Megan Rose
today.

IMPRESSIONS: Talk about thorough! These girls, Princess Megan Rose and Angel did a wonderful newsletter of handling the subject of "Dracula". I've never read more detailed material. From the beginning of this FLAIR MAGAZINE you feel the scary business of vampires and the suspense continues with the whole story becoming unfolded. I have to be honest. I know nothing much on Dracula. After reading this item I feel very delighted that the subject which is close to the heart of Halloween lovers has been exposed in this way. This item is just great reading
material. Congrats you two for doing a super job.

The Reading  (ASR)
a group of friends meet and share something unusual
#1433783 by dblameck (David)
this morning. My opinion is only one. Hope that others join in.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS: *Check2* Gee, I liked this piece. It was mature, knowledgeable about life, ran well, and gave us some themes that made a reading interesting. I picked it because of the title. I was intrigued and went further to find that it really satisfied me. It is in my opinion your own business if you clean it up. You have so much to offer in your portfolio that I am sure it is hard to keep everything on a legitimate basis for WDC members.

GRAMMAR,STYLE,SYNTAX,SPELLING: *Check2*I will forgoe grammar and spelling, I don't think you wanted to have this piece a finished piece. It probably stands as it is for personal reasons. Still, I enjoyed it and the material. The theme was good and you kept yourself in it which
of course is best because an autobiographical niche is always good for writing these days. Let us just say you do well to be this intelligent at a senior age which I believe you mentioned in your bio.

SUGGESTIONS:*Check2* Redo it and viola it would improve the piece.

LAST COMMENT: *Check2* Without further adieu I will tell you that you sound very talented and really belong here. I know that your themes are super-charged and you give us grand pictures with what I browsed in there. Very good. Nice to know that we continue to see excellent writers take the fore on this site.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: I see the wonderful things He has in store for you. I found this poem with a message that I will keep in mind when I go on Budroe's Adventure for 2012. I have particpated for two years. It is like nothing else on WDC. If you have the time contact him and he can send you an invitation. If you'd like I could ask him to send you one. There are great things happening with the Lord during ADVENT.

Transylvania: FFW Newsletter  (ASR)
Mine and Angel's newsletter about Transylvania.
#1886480 by Princess Megan Rose
this morning. *Coffee*

First impressions: *Check2* What a thorough job done with explaining Transylvania. I noted that it is in Romania and I liked what you explained about it concerning who was there (the peoples) and about the territory in the midst of WWII. Knowing that gypsies populated Romania at one point was something I was familiar with. However, your detailed account was far and above an excellent source for WDC members of FLAIR NEWSLETTER to riddle over. That might be the word I have for you today. Riddle me a tale. Now that I know you are deep into writing a vampire novel online, Princess Megan Rose, I am pleased to tell you it is coming along perfectly. You deserve praise and points for this. Angel, your participation is by far a must. Your graphics really explain your knowledge of what you are writing about. Thanks, it was a true learning experience.


Suggestions: *Check2* None.

 A Mermaid's Dilemma  (E)
Flash Fiction- A man is saved by a Mermaid and becomes a slave to his love for her.
#1877171 by K. Sullivan Pierce

Good morning,

FIRST IMPRESSION: *Check2* I like this. It's true flash-fiction. I'm wild about that. It always has a catch and leads you with suspense if it's really good. I think you've got it. Good stuff.

GRAMMAR,STYLE,SYNTAX,SPELLING: *Check2* You need to be aware of grammar. In line 9 you need to have a comma instead of a period after boat," because it is a speaking verbal sentence in quotes. Same thing applied to line 13 after dilemma," and line 17 after love," . Your first two paragraphs need to be broken up a little more with a few shorter sentences to keep it real. Your words are great, but long-winded.

SUGGESTIONS: *Check2* See above. I have no qualms with your style. It is a corrigible fantasy. When there is a quotation mark ending a line and you are working with a speaking verb you always use a comma. If it is not, you are in other words, walking away from the period and the period can stand.

FINAL COMMENT: *Check2* As I mentioned, this piece is worthwhile for flash. It must be rated above average.

Good morning,


FIRST IMPRESSIONS: *Check2* I found the internal gist of this poem rather good. With all that James Bond is made out to be, none in WDC I think ever touched upon it like this selection from the Poetry newsletter this week as featured. Food for thought, too.

GRAMMAR,STYLE,SYNTAX,SPELLING: *Check2* Perfect grammar, no spelling mistakes I can see, and the style is unusual. I like the grip of material you have used here. All sent to us from the opening of a Bond movie.

SUGGESTIONS: *Check2* None. I enjoyed the author's note, as well.

#353570 by Sharon Lee
this evening. Hello!



FIRST IMPRESSIONS: *Check2* I admire the talent here completely. It is such a mature poem and gives inspiration to all readers.
Inspiration is what the Poetry Newsletter is discussing this week and you are featured. I find you a natural choice. There is quite alot here but I did not tire out reading it. This is an early poem for us from WDC's conception in 2000. I'm immediately taken by it.

GRAMMAR,STYLE, SYNTAX: *Check2* Nothing wrong with the grammar. Your free reign with the comma is justifiable and the poem breathes through these. I love the style: good rythm and rhyme. It is almost totally original and makes me want to dream of "a place" like this that I might have been to and relax and gain serenity from it.

SUGGESTIONS:*Check2* None. It is a high-rate poem.

PERSONAL OUTLOOK:*Check2* I find a poem like this as I said, a talent from within. It shows wisdom in it's seams and doesn't fall apart. I like to see the seriousness of certain poems where there was good, straight thinking to make it clear, and knowledgeable. Nature studies if performed well can be awesome.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: One of your best detailed pieces I have read. Filled with descriptions that are intriguing. I followed your pen to become Jane Austen that day. It was a true event. I have never had such an experience and can only dream about it.

GRAMMAR,SPELLING, SYNTAX: good grammar, nice time-line for us to follow with the Victorian Age as your subject. Your mother must have been thrilled to be there with her daughter. The story was heart-warming in that way. The two of you, making a day of it. Happy to see you are giving us a taste of your life, it is a bit exciting isn't it. The material was just wonderful.

SUGGESTIONS: Save it. It is an excellent portfolio piece for you to cherish.

Good morning. *CoffeeBl*




FIRST IMPRESSIONS: An excellent storytelling poem. It has presence and glamour. I look your your happy endings as though were neccessary in you best poetry, it is a style that not many can keep. As this specific Jane Austen poem, it heralds one of the greatest women writers of their time and I find that fascinating.

GRAMMAR: Spelling is fine. Nice traditional rhyme.


SYNTAX,PSYCHOLOGICAL RAMIFICATIONS: It, is just long enough. It gives us a picture of your ideas that I feel are writer's best idea for romance and that is to catch the man. Psychologically you have done a good job of keeping us optimistic. I feel you are also mysterious enough to hide some of your method of emotions as to make the poem eery and magical and up-to-date in our own times with its themes

SUGGESTIONS: Write on.

 Describing Women  (E)
Describing a woman without saying, "she, her, woman, female, girl."
#812581 by W.D.Wilcox
Hello and Good morning!*Smile*




First Impressions: I picked this one out as I went through your poetry folder. It was hard to choose one since all the titles sounded very inviting. An array of great subjects. I chose this one because it is something I am always curious about: how men are with woman and how they treat them. On a general note, the voice in the poem is exciting. It gave me a few words to size up before I recognized their meaning however, that didn't bother me since I felt very satisfied with free verse with rhythm. Perhaps there is something "traditional verse" about it but I didn't catch it.


Style, Syntax, Pyscholgical Ramifications: Great style, and may I say you have always been psychologically suspenseful since I first read it back in 2002. Your genres have style, and this piece is a goldmine of words for us to enjoy.

Grammar, Spelling: No mistakes that I can see. Words like "leggidrious" I gathered. The word "sanguine" I had to look up. It is a very essential word and other words you used were giving this poem a flash of your elite knowledge.


Suggestions: None. I just enjoyed reading you, that's all. Women who read this and wonder about it will be proud, it's a "woman" poem which
gives us self-esteem.

It is a congrats for such an award-winning piece on WDC that I review this piece. I subscribe to the Spiritual Newsletter and it was featured. It caught my eye immediately especially with such an intriguing title. I found it charming.


For those who are church-goers it is a relief to see this. The contemp scene was proved a success with a bundle of active words. They let the piece sail through it's composite with good sense and religious spirtuality that is always good to here about.

Good character development for a short. I especially liked the down-home voice of the little boy,

It had a sense of knowning itself and not wordy but story-provoked which had a lead and an ending that I really loved.

Nice to see such comprehensive wriiting on WDC.

What I see here is an attempt at a prose poem of some sort. It's meaningfulness is certainly there. It tears apart words to give you the center of an equation on a philosophy that can indeed work. Life, I guess.


No spelling errors very good.

Makes sense as a whole.
Tells me a little about the author's wants. She/He wants to be a writer with a heart.

Natural flow.
Do you want to be a healer?

Slice of God's gift to us as we struggle. Nice.


Excellent passage to keep in mind for a long piece.

. Hello, Princess Megan Bella Rose!


I am so glad that you have brought up your goals for the year. Unlike trivial goals, these that you speak of have such great ideas with them. The writing of a new novel, new scrap-booking challenges, and challenges with God our Maker, are three wonderful and high-standard goals.

Knowing you, I would like to say that when you take on a challenge you usually have success with it. Your reviewing background is impeccable and you have taken on lots of reviewers to keep them well-informed with their writing. This is a very unselfish challenge.

You have always done your job!

To finish your Jane Austen with it now having fifty chapters is just incredible. I hope you go far with it.
