Everyone knows that the first paragraph is the most important. No matter how interesting your story is, no matter if it gets better and you consider the later chapters to be your best work; if people don’t like your first paragraph, it’s game over for you. This is what the title says - rate the paragraph of the person above you!
Please use the number rating (2/10, 7/10, etc).
Please provide thorough “critiques” (if you will) of the paragraph above you. Provide details and suggestions for improvement - not just “it’s good” and move on. I mean, come on, man.
Please do not create any “stray posts”. That is, posts that do not critique the paragraph above you. You may chat with other users but in the same post you must also critique someone’s paragraph.
Please don’t be rude or mean. You can be honest or blunt (or both) but don’t go over-the-top!
Please put only your first paragraph, no more, no less. If someone has placed more than their first paragraph feel free to ignore them. Or you could be Jesus and critique them anyway, if you want.
Here is my paragraph:
People call me rude, blunt, harsh. But that’s just what happens when you’re forced to eat shitty food everyday, served by an organisation you know has enough money to buy a five-star buffet.
