So using the word “interesting” would be a great idea?
Lol! No, Drew, using “interesting” is not specific enough of a critique of one’s work to give him or her really useful feedback. Thanks for your response!
Honestly, I rolled my eyes as I read this, Like who does this?! How about we cut the chase, and say the truth and shame the devil.
As one of the tips states, one should be honest when evaluating other people’s work. However, as the same tip states, people should be polite in how they evaluate other people’s work. People have to understand that they can be REAL, tell the TRUTH, and still be polite to others. Thanks for reading and your response.
