giraffmang: Please remember folks, a lot of reviews are largely opinion and do not constitute fact. Take 'advice' with caution.

    mrsmajor: Thanks, it took me a long time to realize that, but I do know it now!

    Brett Matthew West: It is said the only steadfast rule in writing is rules are made to be broken. G-Man is correct when he says reviews are opinions, and readers are entitled to theirs. They may not be proper, correct, or even close to the writers'. So, they should be taken with a certain grain of salt.

    damommy: What do you think of someone giving a lot rating because they didn't like your background color? Isn't it merit of the writing we're supposed to review?
    February 6, 2021 at 7:42PM
    giraffmang: If the background colour affects the readability it can make a big difference but maybe not a low rating. If it's just a personal preference, no.

    mrsmajor: If there is a problem with the colors used, I do think the reviewer should say that. I don't believe that should be taken into consideration when it comes to rating the piece, unless the work cannot be seen well enough to be read.

    kmoss: So I haven?t been reviewing for a bit, but I just stopped by your profile to see what Sean was up to and I was very disappointed that he?s sitting in the dark somewhere waiting for you to write part five. :(

giraffmang: "In many ways I'm like a sponge. I absorb everything that is going around and it's a violent world. When I sit down to write, I release it and it trickles out on to a page.

"It's like a psychiatrist's couch. It's the same with readers, it's a great release. When you're scared it tunes the senses, it puts you on edge, makes you more aware and because of that you feel alive, It takes us out of ourselves. It's like a good laugh."

James Herbert, 1987

    Kyishia Reed : I agree, it is such a exhilarating feeling to release your inner thoughts on paper. This is why as authors, we can touch so many lives with using our words.
