I have been reluctant to go into the Review rooms and critique because I have been intimidated by the requirement to spot weaknesses and to know why something works in my critique: http://www.writingforums.org/showthread.php?p=408268#post408268 But I am not an editor. I don't know much about grammar, I can't tell a person why a sentence doesn't work right because I don't know. I don't know why something doesn't work and I have never felt like I should be the one to say what works or what doesn't because I'm not qualified to say. And I have never read a book like that (published or not). This is what I can offer: If I read it and like it, I can say I really liked this and why I liked it. Since I only read what I like and it's easy for me to say what I liked and why, and since most readers that I know read like that. I get nervous about saying why I didn't like it and why because its an opinion and most of the time it's not even my genre and so I only read what I like. I can't say it doesn't flow here, you put the : in the wrong place, or all these adjectives take from the story, or your pace is too slow, this is how to make it better. Because I don't know! And if I knew I would be doing that for my own stories! The point of this is. Will it still matter if I give Critique's and they're not about where it was weak, and what made it flow or not flow? Just about what I liked and why as a reader not an editor or anything close but as a reader who appreciates writing that attracts me or draws me in?
