FREE WRITING

8
i've only reviewed 2 pieces so far on write the world, and i realized that i want to be more involved in giving feedback.  so, without further ado, i'm introducing free reviews!
if you are interested in receiving a review, leave me a comment with the name of ONE piece, the url link, and the reason that you're interested in receiving the review.

here are the guidelines for commenting (make sure your piece matches all of them):

1. i won't review anything by asteria or RainAndSonder, just because i've already reviewed for them and i want to review for a variety of writers.
2. the piece that you want reviewed has to be, for the most part, grammatically correct.  that includes proper punctuation (lowercase pieces are okay as long as they're intended to be that way).  i don't really have time to go through pieces commenting on where commas should go.  i want to use my time for feedback instead.
3. nothing freakishly long.  i'm okay with anything under 2000 words but i've seen some pieces that are literally entire novels.  i won't be able to effectively review them if they're super long.  as a rule of thumb, i'd say that the longer your piece is, the less specific feedback i will be able to provide.
4. i want you to think that the piece you're requesting is already pretty good.  i tend to be honest while reviewing, and i would prefer to give a majority of praise.  every review that i write includes appreciative and constructive feedback, but i want to be able to say truthfully that i wholeheartedly enjoyed a piece despite its flaws.  request one of the best pieces you've written for review.  that way i can admire it while providing criticism.
5. this is the most important part, so listen up.  all of my reviews are very detailed.  if you click on my peer review section and read one of the two reviews i have written, you will see the level of detail that i always include.  each review takes me forty-five minutes to an hour to complete.  i want to make sure that my time is well-spent.  therefore i only want you to comment a request if you really want a detailed, critical, analytical, and constructive review.  if you're going to read your review once and never revise your piece, you're wasting my time.  i want to be sure that the person receiving the review will appreciate and utilize the feedback that i have given them.  if you care enough about a piece to want a review like that, then please do comment.

please do comment me with a piece if it fits the guidelines.  i take the reviewing fairly seriously, and i will probably review the first four to six pieces that get commented.  don't send any requests if there's already a long comment section.  if i'm late in sending you your review, be patient––i will get around to it.

    i said on my piece that i would review 4-6 pieces. i've gotten 11 requests as of now (2 of which i've reviewed so far) so i'll probably be choosing those that i think are most suitable for my type of criticism to review. if i don't end up reviewing yours, it's probably because i chose not to. this is nothing at all personal - some pieces are edited so well that there's not a lot of criticism i can give.

    Hey, thank you so much for doing this! I'd really like you to review my piece "effeuiller la marguerite". It's my first time writing something so explicitly romantic, and I'd really like some feedback on it, particularly because I'm not too experienced with writing poetry.

    hello, we've never formally crossed paths but i believe you've liked some of my pieces and i've liked some of yours. i took the opportunity to look over the pieces that you reviewed to discern the true value of your comments, and found your claims to be true. your reviews are highly detailed and you should be very proud of your analysis and encouragement towards the work of your peers. should the occasion arise, i think you should nominate yourself for a peer ambassador position - if i'm not too bold to say. i know there's a long list for reviews already, and i don't expect any of your help when you already have so much work to do, but if you're interested in reading some of my pieces (no strings attached) just as a break from working on reviewing stuff, you're welcome to read (in no particular order) 'golden', 'the librarian', and 'they called us witches'. good luck with your reviews, with the amount of people after your help, you're going to need it.

    Hi. This is the first draft of a scene I've written, it's a work in progress so O'd appreciate any feedback you could give me - I take it all into account. Thank you! https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/free_writing/119574/versions/228532

    Hi. This piece is one I was trying from a little scrap of writing I had done. I've read it through and it sounds good to me but another perspective would be AWESOME! I think it is awesome that you give detailed rewiews. It is hard to find anyone who will give advice because they are willing to give it. I hope you rewire this. I am planning on writing more but am still in the process of getting to know my characters. It is called Huntress Part One: Ellesmera.

    @deep thoughts in noodle soup unfortunately, i don't think i'll be able to review your piece, because it's a google doc instead of a write the world piece, meaning that it has no reviewing function. if you post it as a wtw piece instead, i may be able to review it.

    Hello! Thank you for doing this. I would greatly appreciate it if you could review my most recent piece "Ladies and Gentlemen and Other Nouns". I would like it reviewed because, well, I want it to get really good, and also I'm hoping to sometime publish it in a magazine or something if that becomes an opportunity.
