I decided to add to my post from yesterday and give you guys some critiquing guidelines.
Over the past few semesters at school I’ve collected some helpful questions to ask while editing; whether it’s your own work or someone else’s.
So, feel free to use these as you wish. They certainly help me.
1. Does the opening of the story hook you? Do you want to read more?
2. Do you see conflict in the story? Inner conflict happens within the characters in the story and outer conflict is when the will and longings of different people collide.
3. Is the plot clear and believable? Do you get answers to questions that come to mind as you read?
4. Is the setting vividly described? Is there a lot of detail or too many details? Does the author use all five senses (smell, touch, hearing, sight, and taste)?
