Looking for critiques

Postby Reuben » Mon May 04, 2020 11:46 am

Hi I'm new to the forum and the contest, I've submitted two stories so far, a 3.5k and 4.5k. Anyone interested in looking one or both of them over? I would really really appreciate it. And if my story stinks, say so, I'd rather be published than praised:)
If anyone would want to give me a story as well, I would be delighted to help them, although I have no HM's to my name.

Reuben,

Are you asking us to look over rejections and perhaps figure out why?
I belong to another forum where we do that...

I'll look at the first 450 words for both stories and venture guesses. Chances are if they were rejected here, it was in the first 2-5 pages. Is that OK? (Others are still welcome/encouraged to read the entire story, I'm not trying to take away from that).

Send me a PM if OK.

I would prefer a whole story, but of course I'm just looking for any help that's offered. No stranger has ever read my stories before, and I'm dying to hear some feedback. Just PM or email me if you're interested.
