critique & feedback Looking: Mg/ya Christian Fantasy Critique Partner

Recommended Posts

NAME: Brianna

 

GENRE: Christian fantasy

 

AGE: MG/YA

 

PROJECTS: I have several projects. A few novellas and a novel-in-progress.

Two of the novellas are about people who get trapped in different worlds and/or time periods and have to figure out why they’re there and how to get back. There’s Old West Dream where a girl takes a train ride back in time, A Friendly Kidnapping where two girls are kidnapped for their own good and one is a kind of moral parable on bitterness (which also occurs in another world) called The Bitterroot. My novel-in-progress, while I made up the places, is not fantasy but more historically themed and a more adult story. It’s about a young woman who is very curious and kind, but with a fiery temper who meets the local hermit and subject of gossip. They become friends and together figure out a dark scheme that he is somehow connected to.  

 

WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR IN CP: I would like someone who can point out plot holes or blurry areas, tell me what they think of my characters, as well as the basic stuff. I like constructive criticism, not too soft on me, but also encouraging. It would be ideal if it were someone with a basic Christian point of view as well. Although I have written just fantasy too.

PS- I read only manuscripts that have little to no foul language or sex references. Also no horror or dark themes.

 

ABOUT ME: Even though I am 29 I am still a child at heart and find it difficult to write on adult themes. My favorite books are Christy by: Catherine Marshall and Beauty by: Robin McKinley. Also Jane Eyre...Pride and Prejudice...Shadow of the Mountain...I like a lot. 

     (Fun facts) My hobbies are crochet and watercolor and diy projects and hanging with my service dog.

Mana,

As a suggestion, you might want to spend some time in the Critique and Feedback forum. Comment on some other folks works, and when you get to the magic number (10 posts, I think) you can put one of your own pieces out there. Based on who comments and how, you may find someone who fits with your idea of a good critique partner. I was lucky enough to find one that way on this site, and it has done my work in process a world of good.

 

Good luck and blessings on your work.

Mmm sounds interesting. I'm still very new to the writing world but have been avid reader for 60+ years. My MG work is a "historical fantasy".  Perhaps we can try out some critiques?

Hi

 

I would love to help you. I am very good at plot holes and general fuzzyness. 

 

I have two Christian romance finished and another two started. I did not set out to write romance. All I can say is God poured them out of me. 

 

As to the requirement of being a Christian I have been saved since 1989. I pray and do daily Bible study. 

 

I am also very good at world building if you need help with that. 

 

If you are still interested let me know. God bless

Alright. Please send me the first chapter of one of your stories. My e-mail is banana_rhymes@yahoo.com. I'll send you my first chapter after that.
