I guess I’m slowly making my way back into the community, and figured the best way was to start with a Discussion
Backstory of the Topic
I’m coming up to about a year, when I decided to start reviewing stories. I’m getting close to about two-hundred reviews and I’ve been reflecting on my reviews. It’s cute to think that some of my earliest reviews are like really intense. Not like rude or blunt, but searching for errors. When I first started I read up to five episodes. Now, I realize there are so many elements to a story that when I review a story I’m not as intense… but three episodes. I’ve started wondering how do other authors review stories, like what do you look for?
How do you review stories?
1a. Live thoughts, template, points, random, only looking for stuff the author requests?
Do you review Anonymously or through PM or Publicly?
What do you focus on the most?
3a. Spelling / Grammar? Directing? Plot?
What’s your process like?
Have you ever had your stories reviewed?
Do you prefer reviews to be Anonymously or through a PM or Publicly?
What do you want reviewers to focus on the most?
