I’m nearing the end of my third draft and I’d like to start the fourth with a new set of eyes. I think it’s about time, honestly, that this very long winded project of mine comes out of the shadows for the first time.
I would like a full story critique, but I know this would be way, way too much to ask for, so it’s okay if we do a first chapter critique or if you’re feeling up for it, just take it chapter by chapter? Whichever works best for you and your schedule.
This is mostly me planning ahead, though, because I probably will have this ready to go out by the weekend or sometime after, so I just want to see if anyone would be willing to be my critique partner ahead of time? And those who just want to skim through and leave comments can.
About my project, the Sorceress…
The story sits just above 100,000 words with the first chapter being about 10,000 words. If you’d be a critique partner, I can do the first 10K of your story if you’re up for that.
It’s a YA sci-fi fantasy. In short, the story is about a seventeen year old soldier in the far future who wants to put an end to a war against a sorceress. With this burning passion through anger and grief, as she killed his family, he and his small crew of misfits goes on a quest to find her and kill her, to avenge their lost loved ones. But the quest doesn’t entirely pan out the way he thought it was going to, because after all, nothing is ever that easy.
The story features aliens (some magical, some not magical), sirens, clones, dragons, and other fantastical species. It takes place in the far, far future after a continental drift, and to where things are completely different. There is also advanced technology, including AI.
