One of the reasons I started this blog was to get some exposure and traffic. Not to glorify the written word as I see it but to hopefully get some feeback on how I write. My goal is to improve, grow and to seek direction and instruction from those who peruse the posts. If you weren’t interested in reading, you wouldn’t stop by would you ?
Now while I welcome constructive criticism, I am not looking to be bashed. If you don’t like what I’ve written, that’s ok. Totally fine with that. If you have a constructive comment to add that won’t leave me sobbing in a puddle on the floor, please let me know. If, however, your goal is to be mean to this faceless, anonymous writer let me assure you that I am real and my feelings are real and your comments, regardless of your anonymity, will bother me. Perfectly ok to let me know that I need improvement – not ok to call me names, etc.
What I am looking for feedback on is style, vocabulary, flow and descriptiveness. Did I make you feel anything ? Did you laugh ? Did you regret the 10 minutes it took to read the post ? Did you see anything while you were reading ? Not floating spots or anything but was I descriptive enough that images floated to mind. Maybe I am the only one who has a movie rolling in my head while I read …. Hmmm….
I look forward to hearing what you have to say !
