Oh, no.
Oh, G-d.
I said too much.
Went way over the top.
They’ll never comment back.
I scared them away.
All those fantastic writers.
Because of me.

Oh, no.
Oh, G-d.
How could I be so stupid?!
No one besides me would want so much criticism.
Why couldn’t the “send comment” button stop me?
Why couldn’t I notice that the length was too critical to seem friendly?
I don’t even know poetry!
Why would I criticize it?

Oh, no.
Oh, G-d.
My writing’s done for.
It won’t be glanced at.
No one who got my comment would.
Well, maybe I didn’t offend them...
Who am I kidding?
It’s been days, no one’s-

Oh, wait-
Thank G-d.
Someone’s commented.
Criticism and compliments.
Teenink writers are awesome.

The author's comments:
Hey, writers! It has recently come to my attention (right after I commented a lot of writing) that I tend to write a large comment when I have something to say. Sorry if it seemed like I was tearing your writing apart. I liked all the writing I read. Good job teenink writers!

This made me laugh, I think it was cute. You shouldn't take it personlly when people don't comment most people don't comment. Criticism is sometimes good for a person. Sometimes you need to know the truth
