whatchamacallit's reviews


Welcome to my reviewing thread! If you're looking for an in-depth review that is full of constructive criticism, you've come to the right place.


What I will review

  • Poems
  • Short stories
  • Essays
  • Art
  • First chapters
  • Middle chapters (however I will probably not read the previous chapters)
  • Most content, including gore, violence, and language
  • All genres


What I will NOT review

  • Anything containing sex
  • Anything containing hateful content towards groups of people based on their lifestyle or beliefs
  • Anything with more than 4 good reviews


What my reviews are like

Poetry
I will comment on grammar, wording, flow, structure, rhyming (if present), and content.
You can expect a fairly long and in-depth review.
Examples:
Hopeless Wishes
The Narcissist's Dilemma (A Series of Limericks)
Perfect

Short stories
I will focus on plot, vocabulary, grammar, dialogue, and characters.
Examples:
A Motel
The Farmer (Part 1)
The death of Joseph Warren - an excerpt; Part 2

Essays and articles
These reviews will be full of very nitpicky comments and suggestions, on grammar, wording, and content.
Examples:
My Essay on the Rise and Fall of Postwar Independent America Car Companies and Comparing Them To Tesla
Adapting to Change
Only Needed- Horse Show Checklist

Art
If I review your art, I'll talk about technique, composition, accuracy (if the art is realistic), and colour choices.
Examples:
Paralyzed Collective - A Series of Art I Don???t Remember Doing
Ear Ring - A Visual Pun

Chapters
I will comment on content, plot, characters, dialogue, grammar, and vocabulary.
Examples:
Corrupted Courage Chapter 1
The Dog Ate My Homework Chapter 1


How long does it take for me to review your work?

I will review your work within seven days, at the lastest, but my goal is to review your work 2-4 days after getting a request.


Requesting a review

Comment with a link, and anything you'd like me to know. Also please let me know if you'd like a harsh review or a nicer review. My default can come across as a little harsh, but if you request a more encouraging review than I will make sure to comply.

I require zero payment in return. My reviews are completely free!



Lastly, if the work you request a review for is something I specified I would not review, or for any other reason I am uncomfortable reviewing it, I have the right to decline to review it.

Hey! I was wondering if you could review an essay for me. It is not posted yet, but I will get it out by April 25. Its about the fall of luxury in airliners over the years. Maybe about 1,500 words. I'll tag you once I post it, if you can review it.

I'd like you to review a couple of parts of my.... Well, I still don’t know if it's going to be a short story or novella. It's still a work in progress.

You're exactly the kind of reviewer I need. Honest and harsh, as you mentioned.

These are the links.

https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/work/Tawsif/Lockdown-Part-1-147087
https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/work/Tawsif/Lockdown-Part-2-147112
https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/work/Tawsif/Lockdown-Part-3-147139
https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/work/Tawsif/Lockdown-Part-4-147211
https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/work/Tawsif/Lockdown-Part-5-147225
https://www.youngwriterssociety.com/work/Tawsif/Lockdown-Part-61-147274

You can read the parts and give your comments on any of them. I'd particularly love it if you can do it part by part, but you mentioned you won’t review anything that hsd more than 4 reviews and the first part has 5 already. I'd also request you to review the last part especially since it has 0 reviews so far.

Thanks in advance. And please let me know if you can't review it.

Hello @Tawsif!

I'll gladly review all the parts, but since there's six it might take me a couple of weeks to complete them all. I look forward to reading them!
