 Reviewing other people's work can seem overwhelming to many.  For me, it is nerve-wracking, to say the least.  There is a proper procedure when it comes to positive criticism or personal counsel.
1.  We always need to commend first;  EXAMPLE:  I loved your descriptive words the sound of the raindrops pitter-pattering on the outside of the tent.  I felt as though I was standing right next to you.  I understand your pain I have been there and so on.
2.  In a loving way point out a minor error;  EXAMPLE:  However I did notice a few typos.  Your grammar was close you missed a comma here and there.  Your spelling was off a little as mine is that's a tuff one.  I felt that you could have used a few more descriptive words.  You switched tenses a couple of times and so on.
3.  We always need to commend third;  EXAMPLE:  Overall I enjoyed your work thank you I look forward to reading your next poem.  However, you did keep my attention throughout your story terrific read thank you.  Your descriptive words were excellent maintain the pen in motion.
1. COMMEND.
2. COUNSEL.
3. COMMEND.
Using this formula, we will not shut down those whom we counsel.  Instead, we can make the person listening feel confident not only as a writer but also as a counselor.
