Kill your darlings

Postby Reuben » Wed May 20, 2020 3:59 pm

Reuben here. I just finished my first KYD exercise (1000, 500, 250) and am hoping for some feedback. Anyone interested?

I'm open to critique anyone else as well, KYD or otherwise. Thanks :)

Also, if anyone's still reading, I would be interested in a KYD partner, every week. That is, reading and critiquing each other, although mainly just gettin each other to do the exercise every week, for the next month or so. Any takers?

Whew! Just finished my second KYD exercise in two days, and feeling really tired. Still looking for readers, though, I want to know which of the phases are the strongest. I think part of my problem was the phrasing, so I figured I'll say it again for posterity:

Attention: There are (up to) two FREE stories, open for reading! Not only that, but its writer will email them to you personally and, if that's not enough, you can even communicate afterwards with the writer what you think about the story! And REMEMBER, this is a well known writer who has even submitted to the WoTF contest! Imagine that, out of the billions of people alive, he (or she) is one of the few thousand that was able to submit! In fact, you can even offer one of your own KYD exercises to this author and they will read it for you!

This is a time limited offer (not really wotf004 ), so don't miss out! We could make this an awesome thread for trading KYD exercises, but only if you join up now. That's right, you. I don't care if you've never got any HM's or whatever, neither have I! wotf024

But seriously, guys, no pressure. wotf001

(If you don't know what the KYD exercise is, go to Wulf's super secrets and read #33, then, if you're interested, read "exercises and critiques" to see it in action.)

Hey Reuben, I’ll take you up on your amazing offer and (try) to critique your story, send them my way! Don’t set your hopes too high for expert advice though
