Flash fiction critique swap?

Hey, I have a 400 word flash fiction piece that I'm planning on sending out to a contest soon and it'd be useful to have a second opinion on it. I'd be more than willing to take a look at a piece in return.

But I should note that I haven't critiqued anyone's work before and I'm not sure how useful my opinion would be. If anyone would agree despite this, I'd be thankful.

I don't have anything short to trade at the moment, but I'll have a look. I was a first reader at Every Day Fiction for several years. I tend to read that way: character, story not vignette, etc. If that's OK, send me a PM and I'll follow with my e-mail address.

Hey Elessar - you're welcome to send it to me (PM a Google Docs link or for my e-mail address). I have a 350-word flash I could send you but don't feel under any pressure to comment on it.

I find all opinions useful, and critiquing others work is a good way to becoming a better writer yourself. 🙂
