I pointed out a couple things but it was one chapter I couldn't find much wrong with.

The rest of the novel, that's another story.

I don't mind when people gush about what I write. Of course I'd rather have suggestions, but sometimes when I'm feeling down, I go and read posts in which people gush about me.

I don't think I've ever had a gushing crit. The closest was 'I really liked it' from a reader's POV and some which only pointed out a couple things.

Define gushing. Maybe your standard for gushing is higher than mine.

A gush is where the person is like 'oh my god this is amazing, I really like this' even if they DO post corrections.

I was like, in love with the chapter pretty much, and after every correction I was like 'but it's still a good chapter'.

Oh, yeah. Okay. I get lots of gushes, then.

Nothing left to say now.

Oh, that makes sense. I've never been on CC, but it sounds like it has higher standards than we do ...

Not that that is bad, as we're all young and teenage-ish. Except Imelda and Shaun and -- that other person.

CC has very high standards, and that's what I love about it.

Besides, it's fun. I've had more people gush over my critiques than my work... and yes, I've had people gush over my critiques over there.
