Thanks (among other things).
First off, I would like to thank everyone who commented on my previous post. To answer any questions you may have had about it, I have a hard school life. It has been turning up recently, however, so I don't think I'll be posting anything else like that again.
And now for something completely different...
My writers block has been acting up recently. It sucks, to put it bluntly. I can feel a little spark, but I can't seem to get it to light. I think this is because I'm very picky about when I write, so I don't have many chances. I can write most times, but I prefer to be alone (or at least the only one awake). I have written some good things while having someone else active in the same room, but it is hard. Anyways, I fear I may not be able to get as many chances to write as I want, so anybody have any suggestions as to how I can overcome this?
Lastly, I would like to present a new idea for reviewing.
Rather than sifting through a person's story, making sure to catch any mistakes, why don't you just leave that to the writer? Think about it; if all you do is tell them what they need to work on, and only use quotes from their writing as examples, it takes most of the work out of reviewing! I'm not trying to offend anyone with this, but I think most people don't like spending long periods of time reviewing, which is why I came up with this idea. This isn't for everyone though, I just thought someone might appreciate the new idea. Another benefit is that if you don't locate every mistake in their story for them, (meaning don't tell them where the mistakes are) then they will learn how to proofread better.
I'm done now.
