The basic rules are always the same:
- Be kind and courteous, but truthful.
- Do not line edit. Look underneath the words to what's going on in the story.
- Do consider tone, voice, and style and how appropriate they are to the story being told.
- Do think about what the words tell us about the characters, the narrator, and the world created.
- Consider if this is the best place to start the story.
