Re: Be a Better Writer--DEALING WITH NEGATIVE CRITIQUE

Thanks Jan Yes, I had read that thread once before too and thankfully it has been the spirit in which I have been able to give and receive feedback. What I meant to say with the red ink is not that my entry gets rewritten. However since English is not my first language it does appear I do make a fai...

Re: Be a Better Writer--DEALING WITH NEGATIVE CRITIQUE

Reading an entry carefully before commenting is good advice. I try to read some new entries every week, but I cannot possibly read them all. There is so much to read that it would become a fulltime job. I feel once I read an entry, I have to at least give my assesment, which is usually very positive...

Very good. I truly enjoy reading this. It helps so much to judge your own work and is a great help in positively judge other people's work. Thanks.

Challenge

Hi Deb Good morning and God bless you Just a quick note about my entry this week, as it seemed to bounce somehow. I resubmitted it again, and this time I received the "thank you for submitting" So I imagine all is well.Just wanted to make sure you didn't get two entries, or no entries at all. Ha. Th...

Re: Paragraphs

Hi Jan. Just a little clarification. In the sample you wrote: Vases everywhere were filled with lemony lady’s-slippers. Beau knelt beside her chair, grasping her hand in both of his. “Mother,” he said. Then again, “Mother…” I stood at the doorway, silent. Since Beau is starting to speak would it not...

Paragraphs

Hi Jan God bless you. Thank you for your good and constructive critique awhile back. I changed the ending as you suggested and I must say, it looks a lot better now. One thing several people have mentioned to me is that I do not seem to properly place the paragraphs. It's true, I usually just place ...

Moving up a level

Thanks for the great Website. It's fast becoming my favorite place on the Web. As far as the challenge is concerned, I believe I am supposed to move up one level, since I got first place in level 1. However I had also just submitted my article on level 1 for the new challenge, since I did not know I...

Re: Be a Better Writer--THE CRITIQUE CIRCLE

Hi and God bless I found the critique circle to be a great platform. Much appreciated. I am a beginner as well and greatly valued the critiques that came my way. I have sent a few critiques as well. The only thing I found difficult is to find stories that have not been critiqued yet. If an article a...
