Book / Young Adult
I am 30-years-old and working at becoming a young-adult, juvenile author. I reside in Upstate New York, and yes it doesn't refer to Orange County (located just north of the City). I live about half hour from the Mohawk River.
My interests other than writing are for me to know and others to find out. If you're curious, leave a comment and I may, or may not respond. However, I definitely won't respond without outside Booksie.com information for contacting. :-P.
The comments I leave are based on more than 10-years of writing and 2 private writing courses I've taken over those multiple years. Hence, I'm no idiot when it comes to writing. Yes, I too make errors and despite how I may respond, to which I apologize now, I always welcome long, thought out comments depicting your opinions, therefore check out my work and leave something. What I don't like are individuals who leave one or two word comments and are unable to back-up their thoughts if asked to expand their reasoning. Sometimes even a short little comment like: Brilliant, or Horridly spoken: can say it all. Please, just be ready for being asked to explain your thoughts. Oh, another thing I hate: People guessing at what is happening next. If you are curious what happens next, come back to see what else is posted at a future date. Don't leave guesses about what is, or isn't going to happen in the future sections of my works. Thanks.
**** IMPORTANT TO READ IF YOU WISH ME TO COMMENT *****
For those looking for me to comment on their works, understand I comment and rank based on the following conditions out of 10 stars for each catagory: Grammar/Punctuation/Flow/Structure.... Overal Story..... Ability to Capture the Reader.... Word Choice/Effectiveness.... When I average my scores together, I than comment according to my thoughts... 10 out of 10 is pure perfection/masterpiece, 9 out of 10 is superb work, 8 out of 10 is decent, 7 out of 10 is a good piece, 6 out of 10 is above average, 5 out of 10 is average, 4 out of 10 is below average, 3 out of 10 is ok, 2 out of 10 is poor quality, 1 out of 10 is needs drastic work....
It is my belief that no matter who you are, all pieces of literature written may fall within one of these conditions; especially my own. Do note that I never rank my individual catagories above a 7. In fact, my work usually when all scores are averaged together fall between a 5 and 6...
Second, when I comment, I will often give examples to explain my points as I believe it is important for all writers to experience different writing styles and for those commenting to explain what their comments mean. I will not be offended if people comment in a such a manor with my work. Remember, they are merely suggestions, not a requirement.... Therefore, please do not ask me to comment if you are not willing to hear my thoughts and fully explaining my reason believing the way I do.
