I give both, starting with a good thought.
Leaving just glowing feedback when you see what are to you problems does not help.

I teach college English 101 & 102, and I really enjoy seeing the change when student(s) have been given encouragement to think and explore literature and their own writing. My greatest surprise has been how they respond when allowed to think freely about poetry; one class decided the free form of TS Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" lent itself to being 'sung' to a hip-hop beat.

I love this sentiment.

As I recall, I've appreciated your reviews, whether they were for my work or someone else's because your comments gave me something to think about.

I've gone back to read the first short story I wrote/posted--(2015) the genre was SciFi; the subject was video games; the person was a housekeeper--and I have learned so much since that first story thanks to the honest, constructive feedback of the people who took the time to help.

Try to post something I liked, and then a few things I’d adjust or want more clarity on.

I personally find critiques that are just compliments kinda less valuable. Maybe I’m a weirdo, but I want you to tell me everything you think I should change so it will be better. Haha constructive criticism is my lifeblood
