    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    /is open to criticism on how to get over the 66-67 hump. not that grades are everything but its still a general indication of where I'm at and this is something I'm consistently hitting, so if there's something I could actively improve upon then I'm always open to working on my stuff.

    I'd like to ask for the same critiques from people to help me get out of the 65 zone.

    However, this is why we all need to start reviewing promos and this wouldn't be an issue.

    I've been landing in the low 50s consistently and I would also like to know what I can do to break that.

    There's an extremely clear divide between being in the 50s and being in the 60s. At that point, I think all you need to do is legitimately read the RPs that are in the 60s and compare it to your own because, there is a very clear difference. In fact, there's 3 RPs in the 53ish region so its easy enough for you to read those 3 RPs then read the upper end RPs and see the difference. The very obvious difference I can instantly mention is length. No, definitely not saying quantity over quality but if you're writing something that's around 500 words or less, you're 100% not developping your promo or character enough. Under 1K? You better be a master writer with a perfect efficiency with words and the perfect story. I 100% believe that you at least need to cross 1K to properly develop whatever story you're running with in your promo. /inb4 someone replies that the other rps are too long or boring or whatever.

    I think there is a certain length you should reach, but I also think that you shouldnt go overtly long and make it feel like a drag. But at least if you're making it a drag, you're still making a point by the end of it. I'm still coming away with something. When you're too short, all I'm thinking is... that's it? Which, not to offend, is what I came away with reading those 53 region promos. To put it in another way, you can sum up any story in a sentence but no one will really care until you expand that story into fleshed out characters and moments. Expanding is the obvious first step if you're in that 53ish region. Nothing else to it. Develop the promo. Say more.

    Jon is absolutely spot on. Its not quantity over quality but you have to be able to tell your characters story. I need to know more about Starr. His past, what makes him tick, his outlooks, his life experiences and then the that into how it relates to what he's going thru now. Create your characters world. Paint the picture.

    Aye, to go from 50's to 60's, you definitely need to focus on description of scenery, having the reader feel as if they're in the scene/situation. Until you get into a good solid feud, it might be a bit difficult when you go from match to match. Cause I had a ton of trouble with that early on until Vincent started getting into some solid feuds, which then definitely hit a high during his feud with Jethro Warren.

    @Jon - How to get beyond 60's, don't worry about it all that much because getting Mid - High 60's is actually pretty good, getting 70+ is extremely rare in the FWA. So getting 65 - 67's is actually pretty good, because the grades are a combined total from the Graders then divided by the amount of Graders, iirc. So (i believe we have 4 or 5 graders) if you scored 65, 67.8, 64, 66, 65 for a total of 327.8 that would then be divided by 5 for an average of 65.56.

    Main event RPs are consistently hitting the 68-69s so there's definitely a hump I'd like to get over and I'd rather get over it then satisfy myself with repeated 65-67. Again, I know they're just numbers and what not but there's obviously something missing and I'd like to identify it and tackle it on. I'd like to hit the main event quality stuff.
