It's a fantasy short story I wrote last night. 2000 words. If you're willing to critique, let me know either in this thread, or email me at

Thanks for your help,

I can't promise a long, involved critique, but I'll read it and tell you what I think. [Big Grin]

Dern it. I knew I'd forgotten something. I owe you a critique. Heck, I owe some others critiques as well. Bah! Sorry.

I would love to read this story, and get back to you on the other one, too. (Although you probably no longer need one on those stories.)

I could do a long book report-esque thing, but I could tell you what I thought of it and where you could improve, if you'd like.

I'm no critiquer, but I'd love to read it and I will make an effort at critique.

Give me a date you need it by, or it won't get done.
Posted by CalvinMaker (Member # 2032) on :
Sent. Thanks again to everyone who is reading/critiquing this.

And Blacwolve, if you can get it done by tomorrow afternoon, that would be great. It's a very short story, so it won't take you too long to read it.

id be willing to read but critiquing is not my strong suit
Posted by Scott R (Member # 567) on :
Send it to me today, I'll get it critiqued by tomorrow.

How's that for service?

If you need it this afternoon, I'll have to decline this time. But if Scooter's offer of next-day service is acceptable, then go ahead and throw me a copy. [ooc] I know it's not my first time doing this for you, so you pretty much know what you can expect from me, but I'll still try to be gentle. And hey, maybe I'll surprise you this time. [/ooc]

Sent, sent, and sent.

Thanks again to everyone who critiqued/is still critiquing the story! You guys always help make my stories a great deal better.

Still need another opinion?
Posted by Papa Moose (Member # 1992) on :
Cal, due to child-tending issues and some extended family issues that arose unexpectedly, it's possible that I might not get that story back to you today. I'll still get it done; it just might take me a bit longer.

I'll take a crack at it. Correlle and her boyfriend haven't asked me to critique any of their stories lately.... Or maybe not... Crud, Ryan's story. If you want to send it to me, I'll get it back to you at most by the 12 or 13.

Replied. Sorry for the delay; my internet hasn't been working for the last couple of days. (I said that in the email, but just in case..).
