Gosh, m3m!
Do you really analyse each story on all those criteria?

I'm much simpler: does it fit with the theme? Does it give me enjoyment? Is it well written? :)

but they're TOP SEEKRIT!!

just kidding.

srsly, tho.  the only one i have using this sheet is last month's.  (for yours, the critique entry is pretty boring)  i have three (last june, july, august) that are just scribbled notes before the writing groups helped me figure out critiquing.  from there, i didn't write anything down, but just kept track of all of it in my head.  mostly because it was inconvenient to copy-paste all the story titles and stuff out of the forum and into my notes.  it was only last month when i started reading through them to vote that i decided "hey!  i have all the titles and stuff all neatly parsed!  i should just have my script dump out a critique sheet!"

i'm happy to give you what scribbles i do have.  shipping it over!


edit:  i should probably clarify that my comments on your story are boring, not that your story is boring.  heh.  it just had a lot of "good" written in the blanks.

Good lord, that is some detailed spreadsheet shit right there.

If I knew these stories were being raised to such criticism I'm not sure I would have entered. ;)

thank goodness you entered!  otherwise, i wouldn't have had anyone to vote for!

and, fret not about the scrutiny.  the stories are all so good and it's so hard to vote that i HAVE to have some sort of objective measure to begin separating them!

Honestly, there's a demon inside this forum that changes all options of the polls once they're created >:(
