Good morning, everyone! A small research on Booksie let me know there are only three review chains. I have no idea who had started the first one or who invented this type of chains, but I find it an excellent idea to get one's work read and even more important, reviewed. I guess we all know how it feels to see the number of reads on a piece go up and burn with the desire to know what the readers have experienced, if the piece is any good, if we need to improve anything. So here I am, stealing the idea for my own purposes.
Okay, so here is the plan. I get to ask for the first review. The person who writes it, specifies it in a comment bellow this text and gets to ask for his/her own. And the one who answers to that can ask for his/her own, again in the comment section here. Any person who enters the chain is supposed to answer to the comment above his/her own. You get the gist, since it's not actually a new concept.
- Anyone can participate, irrespective of the age of the writer, the type or length of the story.
- Please be polite and respectful.
- The reviews given must be thorough. A line doesn't count. The idea of this chain was to help people obtain "reviews" not simple "comments". I reserve the right of being the judge of this, so any comment that doesn't get into the review category gets to be ignored and the person's request for a review gets deleted from this chain. If you want to know what a review is supposed to look like, Felix Fossi has explained it better than I ever would: http://www.booksie.com/editorial_and_opinion/essay/felix_fossi/how-to-give-good-review. Go check it out!
- Patience. Someone will finally get to your story, read it and answer to your request.
That's it folks! If you have any questions or remarks, leave a comment on my profile page and I'll get to them as soon as I can!
