Book #1: An anthology of transformations

Recommended Posts

So after some considering and struggling with the pros and cons of making my current project public, I've decided to go ahead and start a topic in the public forum. I admit I may not post everything here, but I'd really appreciate any help I can get. If that works for you, great! I'd love to get feedback as I'm writing.

Alright. Post your questions and I'll see what I can do. Sound like a deal? :D

So I've taken a lot of notes over the years in church services with the intention of writing stories about a Christian. Be it a youngster or an adult, the change in them can truly be considered a miracle.

 

I want to make it relatable to those in the world. Which is why I'd like to write short stories about the different ways we can look at salvation. The changes it makes in a person's life.

Try sharing some on the critique forum and we'll be happy to read and help.

I thought this was in the critique forum... Not sure how to move it there now.

I don't think I'll be sharing it anytime soon after all. :( It's starting to sound terrible. Not to mention keeping things short has never been something I do very easily. 😕

DO NOT SAY THAT.

But I'm already struggling.

know I should write shorter pieces. Not only does my attention span require it, but friends have told me I'd be better off writing short. :( 

It's already at nearly 500 words.

OK. First of all, that is NOT too long. I have an anthology  that I've read and some of the chapters probably have 6,000 or 7,000 words, give or take a few. I am not kidding.

Here's my advice: write the story.  After you finish, you can go back and see if anything needs to be trimmed down.  :D

Well done, though you might want to post it in the critique forum if you want critiques. I like your style of writing. Two things:

I’m hungry,

Unless this is in italics, don't forget quotations.

 

Great work!

I forgot to change the thoughts to italics again!!

Don't worry about it :)  I identified the thoughts easily!

 

You've got a good start here.  What I think you need to do is get the whole story down before you start criticizing your writing or the plot.  Once you have everything down, you'll have a framework that will probably just need a couple adjustments.

 

And as @Sarah Daffy said, you've got a great writing style!  Keep up the good work!  :D
