Having trouble with a story opening? Not sure if your action sequence reads well? Does your protagonist feel as flat as the paper you're writing on? Drop a few lines into 200 Words and let us have a look at it. We'll put it through the wringer for you and see if we can whip your words into shape. If the very idea chases you from the room, don't worry. Constructive Criticism is still our goal.
In this forum designed for intense critiques, shorter is better.
You may post fewer than 200 words, but not more than 200.
Moderators will useTHIS WORD COUNT TOOLto double check the length of all content posted in 200 Words.
If your post exceeds this limit by a small amount, a moderator will trim back the content until it fits the requirement.
If the content exceeds the limit by a substantial amount we will simply move your post to the Fiction subforums.
KEEP IN MIND:
* Please post only fiction or nonfiction in 200 Words *
