Q4 critique exhange - 7000+ Sci Fi

Postby Ishmael » Thu Jul 21, 2016 8:43 am

Here's the problem, my friends. Six consecutive quarters of HM / SHM. wotf008

One more pro sale puts me out of the competition. wotf005

Can my Q4 sci fi tale be got into adequate shape to make the final? Draft is now ready.

If you think you can help, please PM me. I sometimes have more clarity of vision when critiquing than when writing and will be happy to do what I can by way of return.

I should perhaps have clarified that the above post is not addressed only to previous winners or finalists.

In previous exchanges I have benefited from advice from a wide range of people and I hope to continue to do so.

I need a couple of weeks before I'll be sane enough to do any critiquing, but I'll be willing to exchange stories with you at that point. wotf007

Count me in too but I am also a couple of weeks from having my piece ready for review.

I've sent you a PM - Ishmael.

You may decide you already have enough viewpoints at this point, but if not, I'd be happy to be a reader as well.

I have a Q4 ready for review as well to exchange (science fiction), but it clocks in at 12K (by the unofficial Microsoft word count).

I would be happy to give comments on yours even if you don't have time for further exchange. I recall reading one of your published stories on the web and quite enjoyed it.

Apologies to others who may have tried to contact me. I hadn't realised my inbox was full. It should be all right now.
