I am entering a beginning of a novel in a contest. It is currently online on a website called You Write On. I have the month of June to receive ratings. Each writer from the site who rates the story leaves me comments as well. If you would like to see the comments as they come in please check out the Unwritten tap at the top of the blog. I am allowed to edit my work based on the comments submitted - up until the end of June. Although the site is made for writers you can check it out if you're curious.
I have decided to let you help me make the best beginning chapters I can as well. Here is how I am graded. Please give me your comments and feedback as well. I would love to hear what you think. (Consider it like co-authoring!)
