Well, not so much a review, more a ‘requested critique’ if there is such a phrase. A casual ‘tweet’ from a fellow tweeter, led to me mentioning to @leztoomey (www.leetoomes.co.uk/) that I had written a short story. This further led on to him telling me to send it to him for a look. He read it, kindly said he liked it and offered some excellent advice. Many thanks for that. Take a look at his website.
I re-read the story, as a reader, rather than a writer, and he was of course correct. I now know that I have the bare bones of a story (not even a skeleton yet). I also know what I need to do, to turn it into a story. I think I have to develop the characters more. So I am going to take both main characters, and create a simple biography for each one. I’ll not necessarily use all the biog in the story, but I’ll at least have a good basis to involve them in the story. I think then I will have to define a formal structure for the story, and begin there. This could be an exiting time.
