    TEEN: Heart Swap

    I liked the chapter. At a technical level, you're pretty good. That said, I do think it needs some work on it. I admire that you're willing to try and be spontaneous with writing your story, but unfortunately that kind of mindset doesn't translate well into practice and it shows. The chapter...

    EVERYONE: What do you seek when reading a short-story?

    I like a short story that's clear and concise. Get to the point. Don't drag things along, just tell me a good, interesting story. Stick to good ol' Chekhov's loaded rifle: if it ain't immediately relevant to the story, don't tell me about it. Best thing I can come up with off the top of my head.

    Should worldbuilding come second to characters and story?

    Interesting idea. In my opinion, the two aren't really mutually exclusive. I mean, look at the best short stories. I've read short stories that took place in these incredibly grandiose and imaginative worlds, all within the span of 10 or so pages. It's honestly astonishing. I think, if you...

    TEEN: The Long Walk

    Huh. So I decided to read this story for the review game, and after reading the eighth chapter per the request, I got hooked and went straight for the ninth chapter to see what happens. It's a pretty interesting story. Here's what I think. I've always been fond of journey fics; they tend to be...

    really? I might just have to check that out. and you never know, I might just surprise you ;) That, or I fail horribly, both viable options.

    Well I was thinking this Journey/Crack Fic. Basically I was thinking I take the whole concept of a journey fic...and mess it all up. I figured I'm make it episodic with arcs here and there with an overarcing storyline to make it easy to come up with ideas. =P You ain't gettin' anymore hints...

    I have one idea that seems rather promising, I might just give it a go after I finish the semester this month. Other than that, I'll mostly be hanging around. :P

    COMPLETE: A Wish For It To Rain [One-Shot]

    I used to be quite active here a while ago, and some of my fondest memories were made here in the Writer's Workshop, creating my stories and reviewing others. However, I left because of real-life pressures. None of you may recognize me, and I don't expect you to. So allow me to introduce myself...
