Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, and I had a few questions regarding the reviews some of you guys give. I've read some reviews from other sections of the forum and I thought they were just fantastic -- harsh enough to be constructive, but not enough to be mean. Anyway, I was wondering how I would go about getting someone to review my stuff? I'm very new to this writing thing. I have somewhat of a grasp on expository writing for school assignments and stuff, so I think I have a good grasp of the language and grammar rules, but I've never told a story before. Just two or three days ago, I decided to try it out and see what happens, and I was able to fill out almost two pages before I felt ready to be criticized for it. The thing is, since this is a new thing for me, I was wondering if I could PM any of you for some criticism, instead of posting it publicly (it doesn't just have to be one person...I would actually prefer to get multiple critiques, just so I know for sure what my problem areas are). I would just post it like other people are doing, but I sort of don't want to, because I know it's awful. And I would have asked this in an appropriate section, by the way, but for some reason, I can't post anywhere but here! Thanks, Cerebral.
