Battle Scene Help and Critique Partner Request

Recommended Posts

Good day, everyone! I'm almost finished with the first draft of my first story, but I have three scenes that still need to be drafted out. All three are battle scenes, which I'm not especially talented at writing, and I would like some help. Also, I'm looking for experienced critique partners to review the story as a whole to get it ready to pitch to a publisher. If you're open to either of these requests, please let me know so we can set up a system. Thank you!

CM, when you reach the required comments for the critique forum, you are welcome to use it to receive some help. :)

Where can I find the requirements? And can I still ask for a critique partner even though I'm new?

CM, the rules are here. May certainly may ask for a partner. You will have to wait until you have reached 10 regular comments (in any forum) and the system has had a chance to catch up before you are able to enter the critique forum.

Actually, Lynn, it turns out I can't view the rules; a message keeps saying I'm not yet allowed in that part of the forum. I guess I should've spoken up yesterday, but I thought I fully understood what the requirements are. Would you please run them down for me?

Actually, CM, it's not you. There's a glitch right now. The rules are simple: you must critique two works of others for every one of your own. This keeps it fair for everyone. However, a critique is not simply "I like/love it." That is no help to the writer. Something constructive is helpful. You may point out whatever you see that you believe needs help. Just remember to be kind. :)

Okay, I've done that before, and it sounds good and more than fair to me. Am I established enough on the site to get started immediately?

CM, I'm so sorry. I somehow missed this. Yes, by all means. Forge ahead! :D

Okay. The first chapter of my story is up, and I've left two critiques on other works.
