This is not a ‘Promote Your Story’ Thread. I am creating detailed reviews with opinions and advice on improving a story. If you just want reads, do not request a review from me. These take me an hour to complete, please be considerate.
WELCOME TO LTEA REVIEWS
Yes, I’m finally back on the new forums, sorry for the delay! Here I will be taking requests and posting reviews of your Episode stories. I will offer my personal thoughts and opinions, as well as advice on how I think things could be improved (and everyone can improve, because nobody is perfect.) If you would like a detailed review, please fill out the request form carefully and tag me when you are done. If your request has been accepted, I will add you to the waiting list. I have a record of the previous waiting list, so if you were on the previous list, and you still want your review, just say and I will add you to the top of the new list.
MY REVIEW FORMAT
As I have other things to do, and I do not have money to buy unlimited passes, I shall only be reading 1-3 chapters of your stories. I shall always read the first one, but after that it is up to your writing skills to grip me.
FIRST IMPRESSION: This includes the title, cover, description, my personal thoughts as well as general opinions. This will also include the first few moments of your story, and my expectation for the rest.
PLOT: This will obviously look at the set-up and theme of your overall story. Ignoring other factors, I will look at the concept you created for your story, and how you have utilised it. This is where I focus mostly, as well as how your characters best fit in. Don’t worry, I’m polite with constructive criticisms, and I know how difficult storytelling can be.
CHARACTERS: This is one of the things I talk about in good depth, because Characters are everything to a story. I will look at your protagonist, and other notable characters, as well as how you voice them, design them, and animate them.
DIRECTION: This will look at how you have built your story using Episode’s extensive tools to your capabilities. I will consider the use of animations, directions, Sound (if you use it), and backgrounds/art (if you have it.)
ERRORS: This will be where I acknowledge any glitches, spelling mistakes, or otherwise. My personal spelling, however, is not top notch, and I tend to overlook them as much as any other. There are other threads and reviewers who will look closely at these for you, but I am not one of them. If I see any, I will let you know, but it is always good to double check your work before you publish. This section can be merged with ‘Direction’ if I notice all the errors are there.
OVERALL: This will conclude my thoughts on your overall story, what I personally thought, and any major things to look into. I will be courteous of your work, as I know how much work goes into making any level of story, but I will also be honest. Don’t be disheartened, anyone can improve with just a few tips, and I would never outright insult your work.
if you would like me to focus on any specific area, or take notice of certain aspects, don’t hesitate to let me know. If you would also like specific advice or help, feel free to message me and I will do my best to help you or direct you to someone who can. I’m here to help, after all.
I will only accept requests that have followed this form, as it shows you have actually acknowledged my work in writing this post, and aren’t just spamming the forums to advertise your story. Please do not request if you are overly sensitive to constructive criticism, as I will be honest in my thoughts – though I will also be considerate and polite, so don’t be too scared. If in doubt, check some of my other reviews, and you can reach your own verdict. If I have accepted your request, you will be added to the waiting list.
