I Need a Little Help from my Friends

Updated on July 30, 2010

I want to thank you all for making me feel welcome on HubPages. I joined HubPages for three basic reasons: 1.) to honor and glorify Jesus Christ to the best of my ability; 2.) to express my thoughts through the written word; 3.) to grow as a writer.

I have received so many kind and encouraging comments and I thank you for that. After all, who doesn't need encouragement? What I am asking is that some of you would also leave some constructive criticism as well. In other words, if some of you would take the time to critique some of my writing, especially the short stories (Running in the Dark, And Hope to Die), I would appreciate it.

As a pastor, I have definite views on religious topics. You may or may not agree with me on the topics, but when it comes to grammar, point of view, imagery, etc. some constructive criticism  would be welcome. You can email me or just leave a comment, and I would be ever so grateful. Thanks for your help.

Pastor William Kovacic

      Thanks Quill and bayoulady. My family has done some editing for me, but in reality they probably aren't qualified.

      WE all make typos from time to time. But I just can't help you on this one. It is not my personality, though I am an elementary teacher and I have NO problem with my students. You are my peer, so it just wouldn't feel right. How about getting a family member to go over it? That is what I like about hubpages- you can always go back and edit!

      Brother, I am not one to judge others work. If I dont agree, I dont leave a comment. I am surely not in the position to grammer check anybody because I need it also. God bless you for wanting this from others. I love your work and may God continue to bless you in it.

      I'm not a person that critique, either, but I will look out for anything that might need fixing. Godspeed, freind. creativeone59

      What is there to critize? You always write from your heart. I agree with RevLady there will be others who can assist you. Sorry and God bless.

      Though critiquing is not my forte, I am sure others here on hps will be happy to assist you in this area.

      Bless you!
