I'm new to this site, have already spent time reviewing some people's work and posted a sample of my own.

When it comes to critiquing work on here though, I automatically assume everyone on here writes these stories, most of them, with the intention to one day have them published. Though that may not be the case.

So I wonder just how many people here want to actually see themselves published authors in the future.

I critique with the intention to help the writer better their craft and sort out things that, to be published one day, need sorting. But, I don't know if I should just review it as if seen on here, it is considered published and not nit-pick, so to speak.

Yeah, just wondering. :?

Review how you want to! :) Whether or not somebody wants to be published can determine some of your level of detail, but helping writers improve is the point of the site. So long as you remember to give suggestions for improvement, you should be fine.

Like Rosey said, just help people improve as much as they can as writers! A lot of people see themselves wanting to publish someday, but a lot of people also just write because they love to write and want to improve those skills.

For in everything it is no easy task to find the middle ... anyone can get angry—that is easy—or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy; wherefore goodness is both rare and laudable and noble.
