Jenni Enzor: ISWG: The Critique Sandwich

I try to do the sandwich thing myself. I remember one occasion when I was participating in a generally friendly writing competition and one person was rude to me early on in the comments. I was a bit salty and sarcastic with her because of her tone with me but I left it at that.

It reminded me of being back in school. I've never had anything like that happen again. I have to say, I'm still salty about it.

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry for having to turn on the stupid Captcha thing. I had a few spam bots stop by.
