How to Critique Politely

Recently, I received a rather scathing comment on a free short story. To me, it felt a little above and beyond what it needed to be for what it was. But then, I'm not as thick-skinned as some writers. But it made me think of how readers could help writers if they could constructively critique work rather than just pull it apart in a rather unnecessary way.

On doing some research into this, I discovered not only this rather interesting blog, but also this very interesting post: Tips for Critiquing Other Writers’ Work by Melissa Donovan.

I'm going to share the post in it's entirety because I feel it's something worth reading, no matter what you write (or review)

Proof Reader/Beta Reader/Editor Needed

It has come to my attention that I am in desperate need of a proof reader/beta reader/editor for my work.

I try my best to catch every single error, but it's not always as easy as you would think, especially when it's your own work.

So, if there's anyone out there who is willing to take on the task, I would more than happy.

Thanks for reading

A Personal Message

Please note:

I was going to reply to each message received individually but than I thought it maybe best to leave a message here regarding the opening (or non-opening as it is) of my RPS/slash fics.

I currently have no plans to unlock any RPS/J2 fics at this moment. I have my reasons, and I hope friends and readers can respect that.

Now that both Jared and Jensen are married, I find myself in a position where I am uncomfortable writing RPS/slash fics about them, and am currently re-writing and re-editing my RPS/slash fics as original fiction with a view to posting them when completed - most probably through Smashwords, though I will leave updates when I can.

That said, and however hypocritical this is of me, it hasn't deterred my love of reading J2 fics.

Obviously, I would prefer that my fics are not passed around privately between readers, but I also understand I have no control over that happening, and I know it does happen. But I would hope that my wishes are respected on that request. Thank you.

Many thanks to everyone who has left me messages and sent me emails regarding my fics, I'm sorry if I leave you disappointed, but after several months of debating, I have finally made my decision though it wasn't made easily.

Thanks to all the readers who were kind enough to leave me encouraging comments on my stories, and I just hope that some of you will stick around for the original stories that will hopefully be coming in the New Year.

*hugs*

ETA: I will still be posting the odd Wincest fic here and there, and maybe odd snippets of fics I'm re-writing, etc. I just don't want anyone to think this blog will be left abandoned or anything LOL and just to prove that fact, I'm going to be posting a short Wincest-y-ish fic in just a moment.

I'm also working on a sequel to Angels Without Wings, and have a chapter to post soon  ;)

My-oh-my, this book has been waiting on my laptop for me to read for a very long time. Not sure why it took me so long to get around to reading it, but finally I did, and I finished it at 4am this morning LOL

But from Amazon: Crossing Borders by zamaxfield 

Summary: Tristan’s got issues; he knows he does. So when his most recent girlfriend dumps him via messenger, and he can’t stop staring at the messenger’s cock while he’s breaking the news, Tristan figures it’s about time he makes some changes. He formulates a foolproof plan to get himself someone who can show him what he’s been missing — until who should crash his little adventure but Officer Michael Truax, the man who gave him a really expensive ticket for boarding without a helmet back when he was in high school.

Michael has been trying to catch Tristan for years…to give him a second ticket. Suddenly he’s faced with his ‘Sparky’, all grown up — and looking to get laid. The habit of protecting him isn’t gone completely, but the opportunity is too much to resist. He figures the kid must know what he’s getting into, so he takes him home. There, they carry on a cautious dance, only to find out that neither is what the other expected, and that together, they’re hot enough to melt glass.

...oooOooo...

Why did I like this book? Well, where do I start? Tristan is just instantly likable and you are drawn into caring about him within the first few pages. His so-called 'plan' is adorable, even if you kinda wanna slap him upside the head for being so naive. Enter 'Officer Helmet' and his texting shenanigans. They made me smile so much and I knew before the end of the second chapter that I wouldn't be putting the book down until I'd finished it (it's a good 300 pages long and how I adore long books).

The love that grows between the two leads is so wonderful to follow, and even though there's almost 10 years age difference between them, the sensitivity that Michael approached towards Tristan made me go all gooey inside. And dealing with Tristan's conflict was so painful, it really touched me.

But the best bit? The bit that had me laughing out loud so hard I had tears streaming down my face? The Thanksgiving dinner scene. I've read many fics/stories dealing with Thanksgiving dinner but this was by far the best ever. It was almost like a big family dinner with my own family, and was so superbly written it sent the story straight to the top of my top ten stories and it will take a lot to knock it off the top spot. Absolutely hilarious.

Confined to my bed yet again, and ever happy to have my Kindle, I chose to read this today:


Written by Chris Owen and Julia Talbot
56 pages / 24000 words
ISBN: 978-1-60370-463-2, 1-60370-463-9
Available file types - html, lit, pdf, prc

Book Summary: Cody is a cop with a mission. He's the point of contact for another cop, one working deep undercover in an organized crime group. Thing is, Pete is not at all what he expects in a partner. Pete's a little reckless, a lot hot, and probably not as careful as he ought to be when it comes to rendezvous with his contact.

Pete thinks Cody is pretty darned hot. Cody's a little reserved, a little afraid to let his macho side out, but Pete is more than happy to help Cody assert himself, even if it costs him his concentration on the job sometimes. When Pete runs into some serious danger, though, he has to hope Cody will come through for him. Will Pete and Cody live to tell the tale of their undercover adventures?
...oooOooo...

Now, why did I enjoy this book? Well, first both Cody and Pete are undercover cops trying to break a drug and prostitution ring with Pete as the hooker and Cody as a prospective john. The fun starts when they're both instantly attracted to each other... and boy, do they have fun.

But for such a short book, their relationship doesn't feel rushed, it plays nicely and you get to see them falling for each other. The chemistry is scorching between the two leads.

It all culminates when Pete's undercover work puts him in danger, and Cody realizes this. But can Cody to get to Pete in time to save him?

If, like me, you love cop stories, especially ones with hot action along with a decent plot, then believe me, you'll love this short novel.

Fic Rec: In This Windy City by Dugindeep

65,000 words; Rated NC-17; Jared/Jensen
Warnings: Anything you'd expect in a procedural drama or major absurdly rated movie:
Bad language, secondary character death(s), car chases, foot races, men having sex. All the good stuff.


Summary
Chicago Homicide Detectives run themselves all over the city to tie together
a handful of bodies, a potential scandal with a local Alderman,
an unnamed dirty cop, and a possibly even dirtier partner.

In Chicago, it's not just the wind that'll get you ...

......ooooOoooo......
I adore crime thrillers, mystery books, murder mysteries and cop stories... I crave them like drugs, and this one was recommended to me by froggyfun365 and I was super-impressed because it was also available as PDF and Kindle download (Yup, I'm addicted to my Kindle). I ended up sitting up until the wee early hours of the morning reading this because I simply couldn't stop. The flow of the story was just right, and it kept me guessing as to the identity of the killer. The two main characterizations were great and made them utterly believeable. Whyever this isn't re-written and published as an original ebook is beyond me. This was one fic I'd be happy to lay out cash for.

Since I got my Kindle, I seem to do nothing but read.

This week I read both Talker and Talker's Redemption by Amy Lane / amy_lane67</lj> 

I must admit truthfully, it was the pretty pretty covers that drew me to these books because Mmmm tattoo boys, and the blurbs intrigued me.
