Resolution

I've fallen into the habit of not leaving comments on fic if I can't leave a detailed, insightful one.

I think this is because I've read of people complaining of 3 or 4-word comments, and others stating that the only proper comment is a detailed, multi-paragraph one that shows appropriate analysis and reflection.  I like those, too.  I like those, best.  But I frequently don't have the energy for that, particularly on a weekday night, and thus have been reading without commenting at all.

So I think I will go back to leaving brief comments if I can't summon the wherewithal to leave a detailed one.  As an author, I like any acknowledgment that someone liked a story, so I can't help feeling that most other authors would prefer that to no comment at all.

Not being a writer myself (sob!), I frankly don't know the proper descriptions to use when commenting on a story, and college was a loooong time ago. But if you all are OK with a fumbling, "great story," or even, "I loved it," then I won't feel so inadequate!

I'd be happy with that! I love longer comments, but just hearing that someone liked a story is very gratifying!
