A non WotF contest story

Postby LDWriter2 » Sat Jan 18, 2020 3:57 pm

I wrote one for a different contest as the title says. It could use a check over. I hope it's one of my better written story but... Anyway, I would appreciate any help. I would do one for anyone who reads this story-hopefully I can make a bunch of suggestions to help yours. A bit over 4,000 words.

I'll PM you my e-mail address. I'll have a story of similar length ready in a week or so if that sounds good. I don't intend to submit it to WotF either, but it will be my backup for this quarter.

Probably free for critique swaps, but double-check in case I'm away.

Okay This story is off. I am not sure how long it will be to get a response. A day-three weeks? If anyone that reads this has been here awhile you may remember that I have said that only one editor has liked my work-to any degree beyond a HM that is-but he isn't buying. Well he is buying. I now have a chance to see if I have been correct or not. Hmmm...

I figured I might as well put this into a preexisting thread, so here goes...

Anyone interested in reading and telling me what they think of a bizarre, half allegory-like 3.5k story? Like I said, it's pretty weird and I don't think it's fit for WotF because of its very minimal speculative premise, among other reasons; but I do want to know if it's any good. And no telling me it's weird, I know that already, and no telling me I have a twisted mind, either, cuz I know that already too. wotf002

I'm also willing to critique anyone else's story as well, regardless whether you want to read mine or not. (What, not want to read it? Impossible? wotf006 )
