    ^ lol...fuck outta here jook...

    Not necessarily listed in order of importance in how I judge verses.

    Flow
    Scheme
    Mechanics
    Story progression
    Character development
    Imagery
    Emotion
    Take on the actual topic
    Writers voice
    Vocab
    Originality
    and obviously Personal Preference

    example of the latter being, you could write the most creative story about you and your pet dragon, but 99 times out of 100 that'll never work for me.

    Great pieces shine in all those elements.

    okay, but be more specific

    you just listed components of a verse

    but what draws the line between good and great? what do you look for? what's more important?

    more importantly, what do you focus on when writing? what is more important to you? what do you feel should shine through the piece to the reader?

    You already have the total stars tallied up somewhere because you post them every week, so all you would have to do is add up the person's wins and losses to figure out what to divide their stars by and BAM, that's their rating out of 5.0 scale.

    Ok, I tell ya what. Send me your star ratings for each person's verse before you post the mag, I'll keep up with the number of weeks each person has and send the rankings back to you. Just PM it next week on Monday afternoon or something and I'll hit you back Monday night. Fair game?
