Captain’s Log, Supplemental
I've started a fiction critique service called The Story Sensei that differs from a typical freelance editor.
When judging contests, I've been able to pick out high-level structural flaws from writers' manuscript synopses. By pointing those out, I enable the writer to make structural changes to their storyline to tighten a sagging story into something strong and solid.
I know that most writers are DIRT POOR (I'm one of them). That's why I critique synopses--it's faster and cheaper for busy writers without the money to have their entire manuscript edited by a freelance editor.
Especially in this season where writers are finishing their Book-in-a-year, I'm offering to critique both a 2-page single-spaced synopsis AND a chapter-by-chapter synopsis for only $40. I'll critique your storyline for high-level structural flaws like:
· Good pacing, strong sense of movement
· Setting as a character
· Unique story premise
· Clear story arc--beginning, middle, end
· Inciting Incident
· External goals
· Internal goals
· Black Moment
· Unique/original characters
· Secondary characters--goals, depth, contribute to the story
