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.

Anyone up for a 450?
For there is death in the sound of it, and a glamorous fatality, like silver pennons downrushing at sunset, or a dying fall of horns along the road to Ronceveaux.

I don't think there's many rules to a 450 swap. My email is corbin.maxwell@yahoo.com

Thank you.

Popping in with a link - in case anyone missed the Kitchen Sink post:
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.

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????
