Hi, I'm new to the horror group, and am hoping for a little help. A favour really. I have a short story, around 6000 words, and really need someone to go over it for me. Normally, I would have my wife do it, but she's not great with horror and definitely will not read anything (or watch anything) where an animal dies. Which leaves me in a bit of a bind so I was wondering if anyone would care to take a look. I take constructive criticism very well (my wife can be brutally honest with me) and am aware my grammar isn't great.

Any takers? Mostly all I can offer is thanks and friendship in return right now because I'm skint right now.

Hi Rhian! 6k doesn't sound too time consuming. I'm an experienced critter who focuses on big picture issues as well as technical ones. My Horror shorts have been published in a bunch of paying venues. If you're interested, send the story as a doc to laura_6eg(at)yahoo.com

Hi Rhian!

I finished the edit and sent it to you a week ago, March 14, but I didn't hear anything back. Did you receive it? Do I need to send it again?
