Let me help you with your craft! I have 16+ years of writing experience and several years of critiquing. I will provide helpful feedback along with suggestions on how to improve your story. My comments will address any issues in the following: plot, characters, dialogue, structure, tension, title, language and more.
Does your opening grab the reader? Is your ending satisfying? Have you used too much telling? I can help.
Here's what writers have said about my critiques:
"Great feedback! So detailed!! Thank you! It's very much appreciated, and it all makes perfect sense!" and "Thank you for your very detailed, very helpful critique. I appreciate your recommendations more than words can say. I am excited to dive deep and work on this. You're a fabulous critiquer." --Annemarie G.
*** "I am pleased you were able to return it to me quickly. Your observations, suggestions, and strategies all make sense to me. I plan to revise and polish my work, and I would very much like to have you critique it again." --Kevin R. *** "I had a critique from Rosie Pova this year, and I can highly recommend her!" --Lauri M. "Thanks for the fun and clever help @RosiePOVwith my latest picture book." --Jany C.
"Thank you for the great feedback and fun ideas." --Jany C.
