Thread Info

The decline: some of us fear the day one will come. Others are all too familiar with them. None of us really like to give them, and we all wish we could do it better.

This discussion was inspired by interest in the 'good' decline, wherein a reviewer has obviously read the submission carefully, thought about it in depth, and written a review that explains their thinking. I want to explore how to write a decline to be of use to the author, and discuss how a decline can help the author to write better.
