If you remember, I posted a short story here a while ago called Dragon Deception. I was never too keen on the title, but I quite liked the story.
Now I’ve put it up for review on a site called critters. This is basically a website where authors submit their stories, and then review each others works. It’s a closed site, and the stories only go to registered users for review purposes, thus it does not amount to publication. Very cool.
Critters is for writers of speculative fiction, which covers Science-Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. I have been reviewing there for a while, but this is the first story I have had reviewed, and so far feedback has been good.
I am getting some good feedback on the story, and it is making me more confident. I really hate short stories, which is to say I love reading them, but I hate writing them. They are so difficult, so much more than a novel or poem. I am hoping to do a few more this year, and have a few markets lined up for them once they are finished and polished.
Keep your eyes out for some David Seven pieces in a journal near you. 🙂
