The JAN 2016 "Dear Me" Contest. Thanks for entering.

*Note1* My review is based on professional editing points. It is meant to be honest, encouraging, and respectful in accordance with WDC guidelines.

*Reading* THE ESSAY

This is a quick, momentum building essay.

*Smile* WHAT I LIKED

I liked how the essay was succinct and to the point. It was easy to read and understand.

*Star* POV NARRATION/TENSE

This is written in the first person. Good job with narration. Past tense is used appropriately.

*Star* GOAL SETTING

Immediate writing goals for 2016 (for FEB 2016) are set and appear achievable.

*Star* MECHANICS

I did not spot any spelling mistakes. I might suggest a minor edit for grammar and punctuation. As written: "My story isn't going to be quite as pedestrian as that. So, watch for it!" I might suggest: "My story isn't going to be quite as pedestrian as that, so watch for it. (!)" I prefer the period, but exclamation point is fine if the intent is to stress a point.


*Star* PARTING THOUGHTS/SUGGESTIONS

The opening engages the reader. Word count was listed in accordance with the rules. Good luck in the contest.
