    Thumbs up Review a Story Month - November 2010!

    Weíre bringing back last yearís Review a Story Month success!

    Review A Story Month!


    People are reading the stories, but many arenít leaving feedback to let the authors know how much they enjoyed it. And, letís face it; if the writerís donít know that people are actually enjoying their work, then why are they going to keep producing stories for our wondrous ship?

    And so we thought that maybe what would help was something that we could all participate in; a goal that we could shoot for.

    Which is why weíre declaring November Ė Review A story Month.

    Now, itís important to note that reviews donít always have to be long and involved messages. A simple ďGreat story. I loved it!Ē can mean the world to a writer because, believe me, even if reviews are short, there is a world of difference between getting three responses and getting eleven responses, no matter how short they are.

    ďBut,Ē you tell us, ďI never know what to say!!!

    And you bring up a great point. Which is why we have devised, for those of you who feel that you need a little help to get started, the 60 second review.

    The 60 Second Review

    Step One: If you thought the story was good, or great, or that you loved it, say so.

    Ex: Great story!

    Ex: Good work!


    Step Two: Pick out one moment you enjoyed in the story.

    Ex: I loved when Chloe glued that squirrel to Lexís head.

    Ex: I thought it was wonderful when Lex glued that squirrel to Lanaís head.


    OR

    Pick out one feeling that the story made you feel.

    Ex: This story really made me laugh.

    Ex: I thought that this story was so sweet.


    Step Tree: Encourage them to post again.

    Ex: Please post more soon!

    Ex: I canít wait for the next chapter


    And there you have it Ė a 60 second review. In only one minuteís time you have made an authorís day.

    Join in!

    So, Iím asking the Chlex community to please join us here at NS in Review a Story month. Letís give back to the writers who give so much joy to us.

    How's the reviewing going everyone? Are you giving your feedback properly? Remember, it doesn't have to be lengthy, a short sentence saying you liked it/loved it/etc. will suffice!
