I’ve just finished the first draft of the novel I’m working on. I’m sort of a newbie in all areas… I’m new to LWC, to writing novel-length prose, and to the concept of CPs in general. I tend to be pretty private about my writing and have never allowed anyone to read it, which is why I know I need a second pair of eyes. Kind of scary, though!
If anyone’s interested in swapping a chapter or two for critique, let me know! I’m not sure how this works, if you can just reply here or send me a message, but either way is fine. I’m looking for general feedback on tone, character development, any gaping holes, that sort of thing. The plot is quite complicated, so it’s been tricky knowing where to integrate all the necessary details (currently struggling with a bit of an infodump in Ch1 – but hopefully an interesting one!), so it would be nice to see if there is any confusion from a reader along the way.
If you’re interested in the genre and are writing something with a similar vibe, I’d love to “meet” you. Please only contact me if you think we’d be a good fit!
Hi, Emma. I’m also very new to LWC (like 5 minutes new!). Never had a CP and I’m working on my first real novel – a YA dystopian spy story (only 1/4 done). I’d love to swap projects. I’ll need a couple of days to send what’s done of mine to you, but I’d love to critique yours now, if you want. I understand feeling private about your writing. I am too. So since we’re both new, maybe we’ll be good for each other. If not, we can both walk away, no hard feelings. How’s that sound?
