Why Haven't you reviewed me!!!!
Do you know how often I see that?
As I told Darth back when I first started, I spend an average of 30 hours a week writing, and part of that time when I'm on the computer reading for the column. Right now I am spending an average of eight hours a week reviewing and writing it.
So I can get kinda frustrated.
When I started I decided that it wasn't fair to the people who posted before I began if I left them for last, so I started at the bottom of what was then one page.
Look at how many we have now.
Another consideration is everytime a thread is changed, whether it's you writing or someone commenting, it gets bumped to the top of page one.
So if you have not been reviewed yet, I am sorry. Since I cannot be bribed (Well, games, books and chocolate will sway me a little) you will have to wait your turn.
However if you are burning for me to comment, here's what you do.
First, ASK me in a PM. It doesn't take a lot of time and as yet I have not refused to review someone early. I just save the review until their work finally comes up.
When you ask, please say whether you want a 'column' review or a 'full' review. I would love to teach writing, but don't have the credentials to qualify.
A full review is just that. I put on my teaching hat. Unlike the column reviews, I pull no punches. I will tell you if something is wrong with your idea and style.
In both cases, I will send you a copy. If it's a full review I will insert my commentary in parenthesis so you can see what I am talking about.
If you want either kind, remember that our PM mail is small, so few of your stories will fit. So ask me by PM first, then if I say send it on, e-mail it. Hopefully the gottverdamnt system remembers it now.
One thing, don't just say 'why can't you read it on site?'
I don't have the time honestly to track down every thread people want me to read, read them critique them, and also do my own writing and the column. Please save me so time here.
Hopefully they will make this a stixcky so I won't have to...
