I'm not sure; the internet's been so problematic the page won't load.

What's wrong with these computers? I know nothing about computers, so if you could tell me if it's at my end or at the other end of the line, I'd be pretty grateful.

It's actually Wu's fault. They need a new connection to the HBOSN server and he didn't get it yet.

It's not you Dave.

Well, I don't have a problem with ANs used correctly. I thought, in your case, that telling us your worries and considerations was not really necessary. Sure, maybe it is somewhat important to tell us what is going through your mind about your work, but I would just say, as I always do: post it here.

Anyway.

Okay. Good introduction. Though, there were some things that could have been improved:

Flow was one of them. Work on leading from one sentense to the next with your wording; and for that matter, through the sentense with what words you use. Wording is very important. Some words just work a lot better, sound a lot better, and look a lot better in context. So always be mindful of this.

You told a bit too much, I think. That was part of what threw off your flow. Describe instead of explaining when you narrate. Nothing drastic, of course, but it is one of the things you should focus on and remember when you are writing - because that is when it makes the difference.

The emotion was good. Something well included. But try to make it more personalized - run things together and don't be afraid to go into short explenations about how he feels and how it has been affecting him - in the recent times and in the past ones.


While I think this whole concept was interesting, I think it could have related a bit more to the plot. If it was, it just did not seem so to me. Like you wrote this whole chapter about this one instance just for a starter. I'm sure you have something bigger to present, though. So, I'll keep watching.


Overall, this was pretty good. Nothing too major that was wrong with it. Just keep working to build up your writing. Good luck.

Flow and grammar problems were my only real big issue.

Emotion was use to good effect but could have been improved by slowing the pace slightly.

I liked this and will now move on to your next.

That might be your problem. You have to read right into your work with a fair amount of enthusiasm to catch anything. If you just read through have dead-eyed just to proofread it, chances are you could miss a good deal.

So don't strain yourself. Just read when you have time, and look thoroughly. In a mood to search for small mistakes? - then do it! And the same goes if you are in a good mood for general reading.

Make sure you are capable of paying attention when you proof. Else it will do no good.

Woah, this is pretty different from the draft you sent me a while ago. Not bad.

There were grammar issues, yes, and, like the others stated, didn't flow quite right. I spotted a couple minor spelling mistakes, but nothing to out of wack; I probably wouldn't have noticed them if I hadn't been paying attention. Work on stuff like that and your stories will shine. The emotional atmosphere really stood out, though, so I will commend you for that.

The plots not bad, I'll proceed to read the next one after finishing up this comment--I hope it leads to something bigger, however.

Just one more thing, I had a bit of a struggle going through this; my eyes weren't glued to the screen, and I found myself willing to skip certain sections, but I finished it. Don't worry, the fault may be mine, I'm extremely tired.

*yawns*

I'll get to the next one, now. Keep it up, man.
