A Story by bluessadmood
"

written only days after I joined the cafe..response to some lady criticising my way of writing reviews

"

i hope no one gets offended..when i review a writing,if i get it right,from long readings,and it was not in high schools ,
i cant say that black is white or the oher way ,all i say,i write polite words,or just leave so nobody gets offended,or hurt
..if i am to give everyone supreme satisfaction,then i dont have to read at all,some may say nasty words but who cares ,only a good work should rate high,or there is no need for such a place..if i write some blasted piece,
i would welcome any bad remarks,and low ratings...oh dear friends ,we are not in a battle ,if some one patronize me as to say your work is great i know he is just being kind and nice ,
and if the work is bad, he is not doing me a  favour,then i wont know myself and how much worth i am,besides these people who may many have writings so glamorous , their other writings may not be that good ,
every one has has ups and downs,as for them,some saying ,no one can review as long he knows as how to review or they dont know s**t ,their exact words,or their ICQ is low ,as they say,i leave it to everyone judgment,we should show respect each other ,we are writers so they say ,an artist
a poet ,should have a very nice character ,very sensitive to other feelings,and choose words delicately or ,or else..

I am sure that part of the problem is that your grasp of the english lanuage is not perfect. Our grammer is often very hard to grasp. Many times even to those born here in the U.S.A. I should be capitalized when used as a word not i. Spelling Is another problem, or typing. I noticed a lot of places errors in this piece.
battle not bttle. These factor into the thought that it was written by someone uneducated. and my final suggestion would be to refrain from using terms like "Or else " people will assume that is a threat. There are also differances in our cultures literary response to those where you are from. I do hope this helps to clear up many of the problems you are dealing with here at the cafe.

I applaud you for wanting honest reviews It is so easy just to praise someone's work but it is not really kind. If we are serious about ourselves as writers we want to improve the quality of our writing. This is only achievable through people taking the time to say what could be improved about someone's work. I always appreciate it when people take the time to point out the weakness in my work. Some people may find it embarressing to have their grammtical or spelling errors pointed out in a review, if so it is always possible for people to send a private message.

The point about the i is actually more complex because while grammatically it is usual to use a capital letter for the first person pronoun or in other words the I it is also a literary convention to use small case if we wish to appear humble or unassuming. However, a capital is more usual. Capitals are also used for all proper names of places and people.

"A poet ,has very nice character ,very sensitive to other feelings,and choose words delicately...."

This is so true Moayad.

Sure. there is good and bad writing. I always give credit due for the very fact that the poet/writer has gone to the trouble of writing and penning their thoughts, so they should be respected always. Its a bit like Art, who are we to judge what a "good" painting is... its in the eye of the beholder.

I know if I have written something "good, bad or indifferent" and its correct that everyone has their ups
and downs. I would never leave degogatory remarks to offend anyone, but would welcome constructive critisisim always for my writings.

I applaud you for bringing this subject to light my friend. Ignore the "putdowns" or "harrassments"...and I also applaud you for "putting up" with this appalling behavior.

I for one enjoy your writes, whether "I" is written "i"...who cares? I certainly don't! Its the sentiments of the write, the time taken to pen something from your heart and soul is what really counts.

Keep penning and just ignore the ignorant!

Happy writing!!

We should be judged against our own work. We should be judged by the content of our thought and not by spelling and punctuation. And, yes, if we can't say something to help the writer in a kind way then we should leave the page as quietly as we came to it.

I see you are out there reading. Good man. I noticed on mine. I can't remember the piece. I will look it up, because it was a good review, but at the end it said something that didn't fit with what you previously said, and it confused me. I think it was a term you used. I respect your honesty. But, I think you use certain terms that don't mean what you want to say. I could be wrong, Moayed.
Ok,,

I agree. You don't have to be an excellent artist in order to judge art; in much the same way, you don't have to be an excellent writer in order to judge writing. I welcome any and all remarks on my material, be they compliments or criticisms. Without criticism, there can be no incentive to improve one's self; without praise, there can be no encouragement to continue writing. Thank you for being unafraid to critique!

Yes I will be patient and thank you so much for taking the time to review my work as well. It is silly to get angry or upset about a review anyway. We all have the right to have an opinion and since this is a writer's site we should want to come here to improve not to only hear good words. Constructive criticism is necessary to learn, only with hard work on the part of the writer.

Thank you for your good words.
