Hi, I am new here and spending a bit of time reading and commenting before uploading. Great site, different from the others I am on, which is good, but it also means I have already upset a writer by not knowing the etiquette. I'd have been quite pleased with that level of detail in any comments I received to be honest!
So now, a bit late, but there we go, I am asking what is the level detail our comments should go into? I followed the approach I use on other sites, and gave quite a lot of detailed comments on each chapter (I read the first seven), but quite rightly the writer was a little annoyed that my chapter by chapter comments had given away some of the plot (I am only used to the first three chapters.) How general should my comments be? Is it bad form to make detailed comments beyond the opening i.e. first 10,000 words? Can anyone point me to a reviewer who has got it right and would be good model for me to follow?
All advice gratefully received, ju-ju
