you can't learn anything from good reviews... only bad ones tell you what you need to perfect. so thumb me down, troll me... tell me what you didn't liked and maybe, next time you'll read a better one if you wanna :|
My entry for the Sci-Fi Short Story Competition is now complete. Wish me luck.
It is available here: http://www.circalit.com/michaelvank/projects/project_1330810783/
Please take the time to write me a review, as this forms part of the competition criteria, thanks.
Thanks for your suggestion and the link. I'll look at it and try to improve my future projects. After I finish BHIN, I'm thinking of writing short stories to polish my skills. But I don't want to change STD too much...I like happy endings too, but I'd like to keep this one realistic.
I just emailed you a draft of my synopsis. It should answer most of the questions. I don't mind not using the rape word, but the story deals with this issue in particular so I don't know how far I can avoid using it. This is one issue women from my side of the world is facing...sad, but true. I don't mind removing 'the' from my title, but changing the names of my characters - I'm having problems with this. In my head atleast the characters are already established with these names. I had a dream last night - Ashok asked me, why I made him so shallow:-D. But you have a point on world appeal...so I will have to think.
