STOP! -- BEFORE YOU POST, READ THIS

WCG exists to help writers improve their craft.

We do this by establishing guidelines for posting poetry, short stories, and excerpts of larger works to give authors a chance at some constructive feedback on their work.

Poets: NO. We've analysed the site's activity and discovered that a vast preponderance of poetry critiques get zero feedback. We recommend Poets of G+ as an alternative. (Search it and join.)

Covers: We don't get many people asking for help with covers, but we accept them. You can post the cover directly in the community without going to a Google Document.

Everybody Else: Upload your piece to Google Docs and share the link to the document here. Make sure you've enabled comments on the shared link. There are instructions in the "About Community" page if you don't know how to do that.

If you're here for any purpose other than asking for or providing a critique, you're wasting your time.(1)

1. Don't try to sell your stuff.
2. Don't link outside of Google Docs.
3. Don't start discussions other than about the piece in front of you.

Everything off topic will be removed.

(1) Introductions are given a bit more slack. It's good to know who we're playing with here.

I'm working on a novel about a kid who slowly turns into a serial killer this has cursing every now and then but I need some feedback.

Hello, I'm Aspen, I'm 16, and I'm new to this group. I am an avid reader and aspiring creative writer, very few works of mine are ever finished or read by anyone else. However, I am looking for a place for honest feedback to help me grow as a writer. If interested, a few of my other works may be found here: https://www.wattpad.com/user/imaginger13 (I apologize profoundly for the lack of a more professional outlet)

The following is the introduction to a work I just started tonight, if anyone would be willing to read it and give me some honest critiques or tell me if you think it looks promising, that would be amazing: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FdvAFfJ38yT_SwbdVE9-KhdruTjXaHVeVJoljkTZYoo/edit?usp=sharing

So this is a corrected version of the Prologue I made before and I would like to see if there is anything else I need to fix on it before moving on to the next chapter.

I just thought that I'd share an excerpt of a story that is more in the style that I prefer to write in. There isn't much action in this, since it's sort of a filler chapter/background information, but there's quite a bit of dialogue which I don't really like to write but don't hate in this setting.
Anyways, all feedback and critique is greatly appreciated!
*Note: The book is not called "Bailed Out", that is what the scene is called.

I'm not sure if this is the type of thing that's often posted here, and I will take it down if asked to, but does anyone have a good example of 2nd person writing? I don't see it very often so I was wondering how often people actually write in it and what some of the perks are.

So, this is more of the style that I like to work in; except for the fact that it's in first person, I normally use third.
This is the prologue of a short story that I'm writing and was wondering what you guys thought of it.

Hello, I'm new here and wanted to share a small bit of my writing for critiquing. I love writing but often find it hard to find people willing to critique what I write and tell me what needs to be improved; I really want to improve my writing but that's hard when I don't know what's wrong with it. Anyways, here's a short scene that I wrote:

Well, I suppose, introductions are in order.
I've always enjoyed writing, not that I'm very good at it, and wish to pursue some type of career in writing when I set out to find a job. Most of my published work is found on Wattpad, the others in random places here and there. I do not often share my work but I decided that if I wanted to be a writer of some sort than it was time to get serious.
I prefer to write fiction, so being on my school's journalism team is going to be a new experience so I would appreciate any advice on how to write articles.
I'm not very good at poems, though it depends on the topic, so it's not very often that I write one just for fun.
Anyways, I guess there isn't really that much to know about me; just thought I would introduce myself since I plan on sharing a few pieces of writing.

This is my third draft after having positive and negative feedback(and not very polite, lol). I wrote this with together using the the plot points I wanted to keep without looking at the first two drafts. I wanted to work on weaving descriptive detail into the scene and showing, instead of telling. Let me know what you think.
