A Story by DiskartetHaraya

Tired of lack of comments? Overly sugar-coated reviews? One-track interpretations? Me too. But instead of complaining, let's be proactive. Comment on this thread; all I expect in return for a review is basic human decency. Please don't slip on a banana peel and forget to say thank-you. ;)

Rules:

>Any topic except love, heartbreak, or p.orn (by p.orn I mean erotica that has se.x scenes that don't really matter to the story; erotica is fine if it has a purpose).

>No rants and journal entries. Confessional is fine, but then make sure you know the difference between a documentary and a movie inspired by a true story.

>No children's literature. Contrary to popular belief, writing children's lit is more challenging than whatever else. Besides experts, the best audience to test them on are children.

>Maximum of two per writer. Please specify genre, title, and link on this thread.

***

>For poetry:
-Preference for free verse, prose, and experimental forms.
-I avoid poems with evenly-spaced rhymes (e.g. at the end of each line). I'd rather they're free flowing (like in spoken word) and scattered. (If you have evenly-spaced rhymes, that doesn't necessarily mean your work isn't good. It's just that I'm unlikely to read it.)
-Poem without focus on rhymes is fine.
-Preference for poems with more than one emotion.

>For essays:
-Preference for a topic that's new, has a fresh take, or has a stance people will disagree with.
-Literary essays VERY welcome. 

>For fiction:
-Short stories and the first chapter of a book are ok.
-Limitation: If it has jargon or references, don't expect me to know every single one of them. Even if I do Google them, the truth is most people won't. Accept the fact that you may be writing for a very specific audience.

***

>Disclaimer: This is not first-come first-serve. I'm human. Personally I'd get bored reading five short stories one after another, or five works from different genres that have the same topic, etc. Wait patiently.
>Tips to get ahead in line: (a) Ask specific questions you want me to consider about your work. (b) Tell me what's the best strength of your work or why should I read it. (c) Uncommon title.

I think it will be great if this group have more members. And this group can really make difirence here. I think one of the problem is they don't know how give proper reviews . We are the poets not critics. I think you do so far good job with reviews. You give honest opinion in kind form. I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR THIS GROUP AND I WILL TRY CONTRIBUTE BEST LIKE I CAN.
