Anyone should feel free to PM me their story to critique, first 450 or longer. I may ask you to critique a comparable portion of a story of mine.

Thank you.

Popping in with a link - in case anyone missed the Kitchen Sink post:
https://www.writersofthefuture.com/forum/postid/1160/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=8050

There's a small group of us who plan to write 1-3 NEW 450 word story openers over the next three months.

The idea is to hone our story-opening skills through writing-reading-critiquing a story's first two pages.

Sign up below if interested!

6x Silver

Thank you,

Work has super ramped up the stress levels so I haven't been able to tweak my story based on my first crit and have a couple crits I've offered out already in my waiting pile. If you are willing to wait until early Nov we could swap then????

I'm down. I did some work on my 450 after the previous swap. I may have a specific question or two which I will ask separately. I'd like to see if I "fixed" the troubling issues.

My e-mail is in the post above this one.

Or, I guess, you can attach stuff in the forum?

@scott_m_sands Hi Scott! I don't have anything to swap yet, but I'd be happy to look at yours now. I'm having trouble deciding what to do for Q4, but I'd appreciate your advice when I actually get something down on paper.

@wulfmoon Thank you, Wulf! I was actually thinking about working with the promised you heaven/sent you to hell prompt. Never done the full KYD exercise before, but I'm going to give it a go. Kind of excited to see where it leads me.
