Default looking for a reader


YES, LOOKING FOR A READER.



THE WORDS COUNT HERE IS STIFFILING AND I NEED SOMEONE TO SWAP- AND I MEAN SWAP 'STORIES' OF 18 - 25K WORDS. THESE 'STORIES' ARE WHAT I WRITE TO GET THE STORY IN MY HEAD AND ON PAPER. THEY OFTEN FLESH OUT TO 75-100K - IN THE FINISHED FORM.



I HAVE TRIED THE BETA READ FORUM AND HAD NO RESULTS WORTH MENTIONING.



I HAVE POSTED MANY THINGS ON THIS SITE IN THIS FORM LOOKING FOR AN OVERALL OPINION OF THE STORY ITSELF. IT JUST DOESN’T WORK WITH THE WORD LIMITS,
ANOTHER THING THAT I'VE FOUND IS GENRE MATTERS. THERE ARE GENRE OF STORIES THAT I JUST DON'T CARE FOR AND I CAN'T BELIEVE OTHER DON'T FEEL THE SAME.



I WRITE, (IN ORDER OF PREFENCE) SCIENCE-FACTION , SCIENCE-FICTION, SUPERNATURAL, ROMERO AND JULIET COMING OF AGE. NEARLY ALWAYS THE LATER IS INTERMIXED WITH THE OTHERS.

KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS NOT A BETA READ SORT OF DEAL, IT IS MORE OF A CO-WRITING ENCOUNTER WHERE IDEAS, ABOUT OUR STORIES, FLOW BACK AND FORTH.
IT WILL REQUIRE INTERACTION AND THAT YOU HAVE A STORY TO SWAP.



I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT YOU STEALING MY STORY AND IF YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT ME STEALING YOUR STORY - THIS IS NOT GOING TO WORK.

IF YOU THINK YOU MAY BE INTRESTED THEN - PM, ME.

Hey man, I'm dealing with finals for the next two weeks, but after that I'm free. If you don't find anyone I'll swap with you. Don't worry, I've got something that isn't dark.

I have several openings. I'll look for something a little dark.

This is the site you need, Max: http://www.critters.org/

Also, can we just talk about capital letters? They're important. They're the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

English is a strange language. It can be understood through tough thorough thought though.

Agreed, Non. How the words/sentence strike as meaning is a large part of the battle.

I take it you didn't care for my capital letters, it was meant as a Billboard; and as such to draw attention.

I have also looked at critters, and tried to connect with several of the writers, but as of yet not found what I am looking for, maybe I will today. They tend to be more science-fantasy, and fan fiction.

thanks

and while I was looking through my stories I found a finished but no where near polished Nancy Drew type of mystery, pointed toward 16 year olds. After reading it I also found I need a lot of help with the mystery genre.
