I am surrounded by idiots.

If I have to read one more “critique” of my Lapsang poem that says nothing but “Great work” and “I really find no fault with this piece” I’m going to vomit. The point of a CRITIQUE is not to bleed rainbows. Tell me what needs work!

Shut up, Shell.

In other words, soothing tea time. This is really light and sweet green, and while I’m not entirely sure I’d call it perfectly cherry, it’s not disgustingly artificial. It’s fruity and calming and a really pretty pink and just what I need right now.

I HATE when people don’t offer any critique for your writings. You kinda wanna say, “Did you even read it??”

Claire

Seconded. Once during peer review on a Scarlet Letter essay the only comment I received was “wow, this is good”. Not helpful.

Bonnie

So, where is your poem and I’ll write a scathing report that will curl your hair! At least we’d write fair ones here.

LOL! Hey, post it and I will read it at writers group tomorrow night! We have the same rule as my college voice rep class – first find a compliment, something nice to say about the piece, and then politely express those things that you think need improvement. Sometimes a piece just doesn’t communicate as well as it should and the reader is left confused. (Like when I don’t catch all my autocorrect snafu’s!)
