Tootsie Roll Owl demystifies review writing

This commercial dates back to 1984. I discovered this and other gems at Youtube's RetroView Channel.

Who wants to evict writer’s block from the building in just five minutes?

Show of hands? That many. Good!

Find your creative power by reviewing. You don’t need a blog or a query letter.

Simply comment on what you do or don’t like.

Oh, you say you want to write a “good” review? Well, that would place you in the top 10 percent of the class. The secret comes with saying WHY. Why is the good good, or the bad bad? (Hint: longer is NOT better.)

Learn from the fine-feathered, wise old candy crook in the tree. A review isn’t algebra, requiring one process and one answer. All you need to reveal is what worked for you.

Make your own rules. Tell the story your way. Have fun again. Be YOU. It could start with one simple review.
