Hi Cory,
I am reviewing your poem written for the Writing 4 Kids challenge for the month of August because I am one of the judges this month. Your poem is lively and something children would adore. It is fast-paced, fun to read, and vivid with imagery. I could see very young children loving it but also older children as well. Good Luck.
Sincerely,
Tina

First off, Izzy, I was so happy to get your request for a review. I'm honored to get to read this! You hooked me straight away and kept hooking me all through the story. It takes a lot for a writer to get me all emotional, but you did it very well. The vivid imagery you used brought the whole thing to life and I could FEEL the emotions being expressed. I think most anyone who has lost someone or has raised a child would be able to relate to your story. While it is very emotional, I like that it is also fast-paced. The emotions and feelings don't slow it down at all. I enjoyed reading this very much, thank you for letting me!

Review of Sleeping  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hi Pam,
As you know, Stargate has us all on a Mission and your portfolio popped on my radar. How delighted I am to get to visit once again. You never fail to have something special to read and this had me laughing. What a crazy but fun twist to an old classic. I could easily picture this and the look on his face, well, it HAD to be hilarious. I wish I could be a fly on the wall watching all this go down. I really hope this becomes a longer story! Thank you for the great read and laugh.
My the writing force be forever with you!

Hey Buddy,
I was browsing for something to read and review for Stargate WDC and I just knew my buddy wouldn't let me down. As always, you let your sense of humor shine bright and bold in this short but entertaining list of why the chicken may have crossed the road. Among my favorites was going to an appointment or a date. You never fail to amaze me how you can take something most people would overlook or disregard and turn it into something fun, fresh, and entertaining. Thank you for the smile, keep on writing!
Sincerely,
Tina aka your buddy

Review of March 1st, 2056  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Hello Loren,

Thank you for requesting a review. Let me start by saying wow, you did a great job hooking me right away, within the first few lines. Not only that, but you kept hooking me and kept prodding me to keep reading. I like the way you lay it out in a journal format and you used bold, underline, and spacing to emphasize parts and make it feel very authentic a real. Like a real journal. The imagery is sharp, I can vividly imagine what is going on and as I read, the realization that it really is not such a far-fetched story brings chills to me as the reader. We already see some of this being played out in our society today and we have seen it as a stark reality during Hitler's rule. Slowly, ever so slowly it is seeping back into our real world. Does anyone notice? Those that do notice, are they bold enough, brave enough to point it out? Would anyone even listen to them if they did? I don't have the answers to those questions. Well done on this, I hope to read more of your writing in the future.
Sincerely,
Tina

Review of Broken Hearted  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hi Natalie,

It is me again. This is such a sad but true piece of writing. I thought you expressed yourself very well. Did you know you can change the size of your font? If you use a 3.4 or larger font, it makes it a lot easier for some people to read. The message in this needs to be read and shared by as many readers as possible. I like your direct, open, and honest approach to writing about topics many people shy away from. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work soon.

Sincerely,
Tina

Hi Rhymer,

I popped by because you requested a review from the Review A Thon being sponsored by the Golden Heart Alliance. Thank you so much for your support.

After poking around your port, I settled on this one because of the adorable dog gracing the cover. Your story grabbed me almost instantly and I knew things were gonna be interesting when the newly 18yr old faces life as an "adult". I cracked up with the coffee scene but then, you made it so much worse and I couldn't stop laughing. I couldn't stop reading even if I'd wanted to, because I had to know what was going to go wrong next. The Roomba and the dog, oh my goodness, what a hoot! Not only am I giving this 5 stars, but I think it deserves an awardicon as well...which will be coming shortly. Have you entered this into any contests? I believe it would win!

Review of His Roses  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Hi Fyn,

I stopped by today to review for the Review A Thon being sponsored by the Golden Heart Alliance. First, let me say, you have a beautiful, well-laid-out portfolio. I wish mine was as well laid out.

I read His Roses and by the end, I needed a hanky. It is filled with such love and emotion, you had me in tears by the middle. What a sweet story of love and loss and remembrance. In the end, you had me smiling through the tears. It is a lovely poem!

Review of Pen  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Dear Rinsoxy,

You are so clever and creative, it is hard to pick just one thing to review from your portfolio! I stopped by for the Review A Thon sponsored by the Golden Heart Alliance. While I am not one of the competing reviewers, I AM doing reviews for those who have requested them.

After much deliberating and trying to choose which item to read and review...your stories are like potato chips...I can't enjoy just one! But, I must abide by the rules set forth in the challenge and only pick ONE. Therefore, I picked this delightful story just about any writer can relate to. Ah, there is nothing like it when you discover just the right ink pen. It's like it was created just for your hand...and it does become a trusted friend. How many of us dread the death of our favorite pen? I love how you take such ordinary, everyday things and turn them into fun, creative, quirky stories.

Hi Lilli,

I just had to pop in to see your all occasion c-notes and let me say, there are several I will be using quite often! Or, at least as often as you keep them around. I like the variety and that many contain humor. Who doesn't need a bit more humor in their lives? These are sure to put a smile on the faces of anyone who happens to revive one.

Sincerely,
Tina

Review of A Young Nation  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hi Richard,

This was indeed rather easy. The first little icon I clicked led me here, to this wonderful poem about when our Nation was young and just picking up speed. Now that you know how to do this, why not really send us on a hunt and make a maze or chain of things to do? Thank you for the lovely trinket, can't wait to see what you do next!

Review of My Coydog  
Rated: E | (5.0)
I could not resist this story about your Coya. She was so gorgeous! Luck or fate made her dart for the warmth and safety of your home. No, you can't say all dogs of a specific breed will be a specific way. Once, I adopted a large ginger-colored dog from people who claimed she was a lab mix. Turned out she was a hybrid wolf breed. She was a sweet, loving dog with me and protective but very, very aggressive towards other animals. So much so she literally jumped through a glass window to attack another dog. She was too much dog for me and I eventually found her a home at a wolf sanctuary that specialized in hybrids like her. She killed several of my cats as well.

Review of Banana Pancakes  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Oh, how I am sure so many readers can relate to those middle-of-the-night, relentless cravings and I would imagine, they become even more intense when you add pregnancy into the mix! By the end of this, you've made ME want banana pancakes. Your imagery is delicious!

Hello,

I am reading and reviewing your entry for the Writing 4 Kids Contest because I am one of the judges for the month of June.

What a creative way to teach small children all about ants. I liked how you kept up a fast pace and you used easy to understand language, but you threw in a few words some children might need to question the meaning of and how to say it, which is very clever! Mr. Ant makes learning fun and I love how you relate the ant's home and colony to a home and family that the reader would most likely be familiar with.

Good luck in the contest!

Review of Fergus the Frog  
Rated: E | (5.0)
Dear Elska,
I am reading and reviewing your entry in the Writing 4 Kids contest because I am one of the judges for the month of June.
What a delightful poem about a subject sometimes hard to talk about to small children. What they consider just fun and games, to others can feel like bullying. Even from friends. Your characters are vibrant and fun, and you bring your poem to life. I can imagine most any child being excited about this story.
Good Luck in the contest!

Review of Questions

Hello Sandra,

I am reading and reviewing your entry for the Writing 4 Kids Contest because I am one of the judges for the month of June. I could see this story grabbing the attention of many pre-teens and teens. As your title says, identity IS important, especially at those ages. You've got the start of a good mystery and it pulls the reader in nicely.

Good luck with your entry!

Review of Major Tom

Hello W.D.Wilcox,

I am reading and reviewing your entry in the Writing 4 Kids contest because I am one of the judges for the month of June.

All I can say is this is totally adorable! I'm not even a kid and I was hooked. I loved that you wrote many of the words as Tommy would have said it. Your story popped off the page and was so easy to imagine. I'm sure most little boys would be spellbound, probably some girls as well.

Good luck with your entry!

That is chilling and very well told. I enjoyed every minute of reading this and was completely captivated. I hope you do more of this kind of longer storytelling. I always find a goodie when I come to visit my Buddy's portfolio. This story here is prime stuff to grandfather many more stories.

Once again, in just a few words you capture a reader and pull them in! There is no just skimming anything you write, I have to read each and every word. You have a talent for taking everyday things and making them fascinating. For ONE WEEK in my life, I had vivid pink hair with a single streak of teal and purple. In a small, Texas town, that got quite a lot of attention. More than I wanted lol

This was creative and cracked me up. I think it is safe to say many who read this will be able to relate to it as well! The frustration is real...now, where did my cell phone go?

Hey there, I voted but this was impossible! I admit, I love ALL kitties great and small. I'm partial to solid black ones and black Calicos. For your poll, I could easely have picked most of the choices. What a fun poll!

This was a very interesting essay about the struggles of early Irish immigrants. I hope you write more on the subject as I'd enjoy reading it!

for entry "Earth Day
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
Hello Bob,

I very nearly overlooked this entry! It would have been a shame because this is another dazzling poem about Mother Earth and our need to acknowledge and respect her. This version of your poem would appeal to older children and I think they can relate to it easily.

Keep Writing and Good luck!
