    Writers should get lots of feedback on their stories. Why? What if they want to be a proffessional author? They will never know if they're talented or not unless someone tells them. Using myself as an example, as my title suggests (lluvwriting09) I love to write. I've written numerous stories, but only gotten 3 reveiws. If you would like proof, my newest one, Revival, is located at flame all results. I would like to know if I did a good job, so l think numerous reveiws will help me by telling me how many people liked it, or if most people didn't. Personally, I prefer to have people I don't really know to read my stories, because they, unlike friends or family, will tell the truth about my writing. Family and friends may think I will take offense if they say it's bad, so they lie and say it's good. And if I go proffessional, I could end up very unhappy that no one likes my stories, all because friends or family didn't want to offend me.
    On a different point of writing and receiving feedback, if you would like to receive good feedback (this goes for everyone), then have good grammer and spelling. I've found that I haven't enjoyed stories as much because of all the bad grammer and spelling. Trust me, it's better to put a little effort into story writting and receive positive feedback than put no effort in and receive negative feedback. I think, you only receive positive feedback through earning it. Working towards an intellagent, intresting story deserves good, positive feedback. And reserched, intelligent stories are more enjoyed than dumb writings with false information. And lastly, intresting topics are highly appreciated throughout all critics.
    (Also, as a side note, side notes and comments are also enjoyed, with things such as how soon the next chapter will be posted, or how many reveiws wanted to write next chapter)

    Essay contest

    this prompt: many authors dont get much feedback ontheir stories. They like it when people post reveiw on their stories and let them kniw that their story is being read. Argue and explain your feeling on this topic and include at least one example.
