What are some resources to look into to get higher rated reviews? Always thought I was pretty good at this kind of thing but guess not. I don't want to give up but also want to get better.

I'm definitely enjoying reviewing better than editing and proofreading. My editing and proofreading skills seem to have diminished with age, but my opinions seem to have sharpened with age. :D

It's not a choice for me. Definitely reviewing. And that's if I get a choice. If the choice is made for me then it would still be reviewing. I'm terrible at proof reading and editing. Just ask the editors that have looked at my writings. Lol
