I've completed my first draft and am struggling with the editing process. I know how to do the line-by-line editing to tighten up my writing, but before I get to that I'd like some other eyes to evaluate my plot, characters, and overall readability. Anyone up for it? I wrote it all in Google Docs, so if you have a gmail address you're willing to send me, I can share it with you and you can read it and make notes online at your own pace. Or I believe I can send a link if you don't have a Gmail. I'm really looking for critique on plot and characters and the big things at this point, I'm not worried about all my adverbs and the little stuff yet. Unless of course, all the little stuff adds up to create a big failure point. A little plot info: Set in a medieval-style world. It's a coming-of-age story about Kaelie, a timid girl who discovers her deceased mother was actually a fierce warrior in the elite Beast Riders (soldiers who ride magical beasts). Can Kaelie live up to her mother's legacy and overcome her fears to help save her country from an invading, demon-like enemy? Oh, and it's 83k words, 36 chapters.
