I consider myself a “logical” critiquer. The first thing my lovely OCD sees is grammatical errors that don’t seem to fit. I understand fragmented sentences that make sense lol. I also notice misuse of “there, their, they’re” etc. If I like the story, I see less, so having me as the only person critiquing may not be the best idea. I guess I’m more objective than subjective.

How long have I been doing this? Well, in school, they called it “proofreading” so just a few years in school and college. I have read my peers’ stories as well as my sisters’.

It’s up to you whether you take my advice or not. In the end, it’s your story 🙂
