I have started a story and have gotten about 6,000 words into it. I would love to have some people look at it and slice it up, but it is pretty long. The reason it got so long is that the opening sets the stage for the rest of the story. I just want to do things the correct way because I have gotten some great suggestions from people. I also feel guilty because I will review a piece and then someone else will review the same piece and there's is always better. So I have some guilt complex going on there too. Any suggestions?
