Hi I’m Alex and, yes, you read that correctly. I am offering free feedback on your first 5 chapters!
As a reader, I find that the first five chapters of a book can be fatal. I can either lose myself in the story or lose interest altogether. But as a writer, these first five chapters can be a bit difficult to write and even more difficult to share.
I’m sure many of you are like me in that you hold your story close to your heart. I understand how scary it is to put your precious work out there for all to see and how painful it can be when you receive that first harsh critique. However, as I’m sure you know, critiques and feedback are important if you wish to improve your writing.
That is why I will do my best to be fair while also remaining kind and respectful when giving feedback on your story. I will be sure to offer tips to improve while also noting what aspects I liked about your story thus far.
This offer is open to all though I do have a few rules that you MUST follow:
- I do not accept any stories that contain gore and/or heavy amounts of sexual content. Sorry, just not my cup of tea
- Please remember to be kind and keep in mind that it may take me a while to get to your story.
Make sure to use the form below when entering! Your story will not be read if you fail to do so.
Title of Book:
Insecurities (Is there anything in your writing that you feel insecure about? i.e. flow, dialogue, grammar):
Your Favorite Food:
You will know when I have accepted your story when I have added it to my reading list titled: “First 5”. When I begin reading, I will leave one (or more) positive comment on each chapter and, once I have completed all 5 chapters, I will send you a PM with my feedback. Be sure to follow the rules I have set up (especially the form!) and you will be on your way!
NOTE: This will be closing in a few days. Until then I will still be accepting stories but please know that it may be a while before I get to yours. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me on Wattpad (@justalex99).
