Hi, Bubblegum. This is sound practical advice for anyone desiring to deep-fry their bird for Thanksgiving. It ought to be printed up and included with every turkey sold. Wow! You would be a millionaire. This is an excellent how-to.

Checked out your Youtube channel. Love the fox suit.

Best Wishes For The Holidays,

Review of Voices  
Review by Crow
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hello again, CJ. I found this piece very interesting. I would guess that the obvious question is, do you suffer from schizophrenia of some type, as there are different types. I have little doubt that you have looked into this already. I think it's the voices that caught my attention. I pray that you are not offended by my question. It is asked with the most sincere respect. Strangely enough, your condition could be one reason for your talent as a writer.

Once again, CJ, you layout in the clearest terms your personal battle. That is one of the things I like about your writing, there is no wondering what you are talking about. Excellent work.

With My Compliments,

Review of Breaking The Dam

This is a good one, CJ. I always like the way you keep your rhyming cadence on track - when you choose to write a rhyming piece. The idea is plain and simple. This is good for those readers who shy away from having to think too much. To many in our culture, thinking has become a lost art. They would much rather someone do their thinking for them.

I really did enjoy this work and the positive tenets it projects. I haven't seen much of your work in quite a while. I'm glad I caught this one on the newsfeed.

Lazza, It appears from my perusal of your port that you like the word 'Referendum', and politics in general. That's just fine, for someone needs to keep their eyes on the politicians.

If I would offer any suggestions at all about this piece, it would be to keep an eye out for properly place punctuation. Reading a piece through several times will usually give you a feel for where it is needed. Of course, some would suggest that punctuation is a personal preference. I would say, sometimes yes and sometimes no. In ay case, I liked the work. Keep it up.

With My Compliments,

Review of Soul Electric

Rated: E | (5.0)
This is a great poem, R.R. I have browsed through your port and would say that you have the talent it takes to be great. Keep pouring out the essence of your heart.

'Soul Electric' is an excellent piece. It is a message clearly conveyed in a capsule of enigmatic thought. Well done.

Review of SEASONS OF CHANGE

This is a great piece, Monty. I just a tad younger than you, but I am continually watching those increasingly falling leaves. I am a nostalgia junkie. If it has to do with the past, I'm on it.

I really loved this poem. It captures the essence of the passing years. You encapsulated the idea of growing older in a very concise and understandable package. Great job.

Hello, CurlyFry. Your piece caught my eye and I decided to give it a read. I understand that this is only a small part of a larger story, so we won't get caught up discussing the abrupt ending. However, there is something in the first paragraph that needs consideration. The second sentence," Following the footsteps of those who they have watched." This should be connected to the first by a comma or possibly a semi-colon. The way it is written it is standing there with its pants down, dangling without any support. In another area, you write that Layla glances at the tattoos and says, "What an eye candy to look at..." That phrase doesn't sound natural. You might write, "Humm, eye candy..." or something curter.

I would be interested to read the entire story, as it possesses the earmarks of a mystery or thriller. My suggestions are purely my own and are no reflection of your writing talent. The important thing about to know is that you must be ready to edit as many times as is necessary to get your story to sound fluid and natural. Oh, I almost forgot, "Not even Matthew is not a sentence. It should be connected to the last sentence with a comma.

Keep writing, CurlyFry. You will do well if you constantly study your craft.

With My Compliments,
Crow

You hardly need further accolades from such a soul as I, but, nevertheless, I cannot forebear. You have touched the heart of my sadness, seeing those once living places living no more. Beautiful simplicity is what you have created. I have walked those streets and spoken with those shades of wonders past. Truly touch and haunting to an urban ghost as myself.

Simply wonderful. As a former pastor, I certainly understand the temptation to wax loquacious managing only to obfuscate what should be enlightening.

Great work, and better than that, it's true.

Alright, Whitemorn, that was a fine piece of writing. I loved the twist and turns of history and irony. This was the perfect length for your piece. Of course, it would also make a first-rate historical/educational piece of two or three times the length.

I really enjoyed your writing. Great job.

Review of Paper windows  
Review by Crow
Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
I must say when I first saw the length of this poem, I almost decided not to read it. I usually do care for long poetry. However, as I read the first few lines I became intrigued. I am not saying that I fully understand your mind in this piece, but I did enjoy reading it. I found the imagery interesting. I will ask you why you did not use punctuation. I have noticed that some young poets have chosen to go that route, but I would never suggest it. Readers don't like to guess where you are going. They appreciate those diacritical markings as their road map.

All in all, well done. Keep up the good work.

Great work, Jim. It seems to me that as I have learned more I understand less. With the increase of knowledge comes the inevitable realization that there are more questions than answers. And, the truth is, I really do have a flip-phone.

Good work, clean and simple. Well executed.

Ngoc Nguyen, this piece was an absolutely delightful read. I cannot say enough good things about, although I am sure you would love to hear those accolades without end.

Let me begin by admitting my fanaticism for words and the beauty of a well-turned phrase. Within this writing, I am well satisfied. I loved your word choices, even though some would find many to be of an arcane nature. To me, that is no bad thing. Quite the opposite, those words express the beauty of language and educate toward a more refined period of history.

As far as Melancholia goes, I have never been prone to put him or her off, but rather, have embraced the one or the other as presenting a grand opportunity for readers and writers to hone their craft.

I did have one question which may seem of little importance. In your introduction to this piece, you described Euphoria as "a young, gay and unsuspecting mistress." Do you mean 'gay' as in a sexual proclivity? I can hardly understand it would have meant such, as there seems to be little reason for it.

All in all, your writing here is clear and concise. It is of the most excellent caliber.

My Compliments,
Crow

Well, QueenOwl, I must say that this is an interesting take on a dream. Truly, only you can say what you experienced. Dreams do make excellent stories. My port contains one called, 'The Night I shot My Father' One thing about dreams is that if they deeply impress you you have little trouble remembering the details.

Your dream and what followed was very interesting. You did a good job of relating the details.

Well, Olem, this s quite a philosophical piece and true in certain respects. I think we all realize that we can love more than on person or fall in love many times. I also believe that we can fall out of love with a person. However, I believe the crucial problem is that people don't understand the concept of love in the first place.

You brief piece elicits thinking, and that is always a good thing.

Review of Legacies  
Review by Crow
Rated: E | (5.0)
I was just thumbing through the latest static items and came upon your poem. It was the title that caught my attention, as I believe that is what hooks the potential reader. This was an interesting piece. It was one of those poems that you may not get the first time around or even the second. It is a piece that must be studied. Now, Dean, I must say this: poems should never be confusing. If the reader has no idea what in the world the writer is talking about, what good is that? I really didn't find that problem with your piece. However, it was writing that prompted you to think, which is good.

Good job overall. You get five stars.

My Compliments,

This piece is a nice one, and that is straight from my mouth hole. I appreciate the simplicity of thought. And, never forget, simplicity is good. You may have chosen a unique and humorous way of stating it, but all you have stated is true in a very profound way. Well done.

Although what you explained was all but Greek to me, although I did take Geek in seminary. I would like to know how you like Canada? Is it a place you would choose to live? I have always thought Canada was beautiful if you can stand the cold. I'm from the deep South, so I'm sure I would experience a climate shock.

I want to let you know how much I enjoy your jokes. They are the best and never fail to make me laugh. They are a super way to start one's day. Your work is a great service to our writing community.

Good story, Madeleine. I think that the pace and flow were very good. The topic was excellent since there are so many who can relate to such circumstances. I liked the story very much and believe you did a fine job.

Now, this is what you should do to make it even better and more user-friendly. Start by indenting each paragraph, separate each paragraph by one or two spaces, and increase the size of your type. You may not feel that these are important, but they may mean the difference between someone reading your work or passing you by.

This was a nice poem, Charles. It may seem strange to call a poem about death, nice, but it is one of my favorite genres. I think this piece has a subtle beginning and then begins to build to the final line. Of course, I do love the mention of the crow. I wonder if I know him? The scene is well set for a walk in a cemetery. Would our visitor have tried the mausoleum door? Overall, I like the entire poem. It's not overdone, but just right. Great job.

My Compliments,

What all of this does reveal, Ruth, is that there are a great many more professing believers on WDC than you might think. It's a safe way to relate your trials of faith and of how The Lord has worked in your life. It really feels comfortable being here.

Your Sincere Friend,
