I was just looking at some of my old reviews back when I was active on here and godd**n I was harsh! I grew up with a lot of demons and an unhealthily large ego about my writing ability, which meant I was great at giving harsh unforgiving feedback and also exceptionally terrible at taking it — probably why a lot of what I wrote was lofty unintelligible gibberish.


Y’all young whippersnappers — remember to have humility and stuff. Be friendly and you’ll make friends. Peace and love.

Why did you censor 'godd**n'?

Haha, I didn't know you back then, but this is definitely good to keep in mind! I think with my reviews I tend to oscillate wildly between being too harsh and way too soft depending on my mood and how many reviews I'd written that day. I also sometimes find myself tailoring it if I know the person I'm reviewing - sometimes that means I'm more harsh, sometimes less, sometimes it just means I focus on completely different stuff than I normally would. >.<
We're all stories in the end.

I think of you as a fairy with a green dress and a flower crown and stuff.

I think you, @Deanie and I are like the Three Book Nerd Musketeers of YWS.

It's like being in love, discovering your best friend.
