That's actually a pretty awesome rating system. I've been looking to create a rating system for book reviews on my blog. I might have to incorporate some of those. If you don't mind, that is.
Actually Amanda, that's very helpful to writers like myself who want to make sure we engage and entertain with all we have. I keep a similar list on my white board in my office that i try to apply to each chapter of my books:Writing Keys:1) Setting (all senses)2) Voice (are the characters original?)3) Conflict (turn it up!!!) A) Internal B) External4) WONDER! (nuff said)5) Mystery (have to create the curiosity) 6) HOOKS! (beginning, middle, end)7) Remember to show, don't tell.Not always easy, but I appreciate your list and will be adding it into my own!
