About

I've heard that a lot of good critique happens in the Groups section, but I couldn't find a Fantasy/Sci Fi one. So anyone interested in this genre please read and critique and do post your own work for feedback too.

    Mad Cow commented on the group Fantasy/Sci Fi's wall:
    Ah c'mon! Where are yous? I know some fantasy & SF MSs can be a tad longer than other genres, but surely we can spare a wee bit of time here to help each other? So here's my contribution... Agents for SF - which is better, UK or US? Chapter length - ...

      Seagreen Can't comment on th SciFi/ Fantasy wall because I'm not a member, but I think you'd be better of posting on the general forum.

      Jaxx I guess we are all standing around waiting for someone else to start, lol. Some groups are very lively indeed. Considering the number of fantasy writers, I would indeed expect it to be a bit more busy around here...

      Mad Cow Well it looks like someone just did - cheers for checking the group! So you're at about the same wordcount as me then? I should hit 56,500 before bedtime tonight! Editing starts at Christmas when the 1st draft's done... Are you working on anything else bar the novel?

      Jaxx Alas, I do many other kinds of living than writing, like sport and art and video games, as well as full-time work. So... the novel has been about ten years and two versions in the making. :/ Gonna have to start at least trying to give feedback soon, though, if I want anyone to do the same for me. I too should be on the editing phase after the holiday season. Do you have a word-count goal?

      Mad Cow 90k is my target. My 1st completed MS ran to nearly 140k, & that as only part 1 of a trilogy. I figured it might be easier to get an agent wth a stand alone MS of a typical length. Just passed 58k tonight but it's nearly 2.30am and I need my bed. Guess writers keep coffee manufacturers in a job if nothing else!

      Jaxx That's a pretty reasonable target. I was worrying I would have to get to 120k, but wow, 140! I could never write something that epic. It's getting tricky even now. Yes, coffee. Coffee is our friend.

      Mad Cow My 1st MS took me about 5yrs to complete & I was also working FT, sometimes 7 days a weeks in 2 jobs. How I did that, I can't recall! I cut my wordcount on this latest one as it may be easier finding an agent with a shorter, stand-alone (not a trilogy, etc.) MS. Just passed 64k now, so feel like I'm approaching the home straight... then it's editing time! Right, back to the coffee...

      Jaxx Good fortune to you! I agree with the stand-alone aspect of a first MS, although I am aiming lower, to sell on Amazon, lol. No stars in my eyes...!

      Jaxx I've had a dabble. Is that what you're writing at the moment?

    Ah c'mon! Where are yous?
    I know some fantasy & SF MSs can be a tad longer than other genres, but surely we can spare a wee bit of time here to help each other?
    So here's my contribution...
    Agents for SF - which is better, UK or US?
    Chapter length - which do you prefer to READ? Long (10pgs+) or short (1-3000k)?
    Best starter strategy: completed trilogy (or longer series) or stand alone MS?
    Best competitions to enter?
    Any Scots writers into SF & Fantasy out there?
    Or maybe I should try the general forums... that's up to YOU.
    Your (very) hopeful Mad Cow

    I haven't been here for at least two years. I'm just about to begin editing an old unfinished novel. Can someone please remind me how to post to the group to receive critique? thanks

    Hey there! I'm new to the word cloud and looking forward to chatting with fellow writers!
    I'm in the process of approaching agents for my first fantasy novel and so would love to get some feedback on my first few chapters from you guys. I will post them up soon. I'm also looking forward to reading other fantasy work on here. I haven't read much SF, but will happily try to be a helpful critic :-)

    Hello everyone,
    I've just created a forum for the revised version of the Prologue from my science-fiction novel called 'The Abductee'. For anyone interested, it is the first in four books which follow one family who go from skeptics to believers as they enter a world full of alien abductions, government conspiracies and a truth that will threaten to tear the whole world apart. War is coming - with just one problem; Who is the real enemy?

    If you're interested, take a look at the revised Prologue and see what you think - i'd love to hear feedback from you all :)

    hi all,
    I've written several SF short stories. One (Vermin) published in 'Attack of the B-movie monsters: night of the gigantis.'

    Evening everyone. Just arrived here, this looked a likely group to join. Written a few short stories which I guess fall under the 'fantasy' umbrella, and looking to read some good advice and perhaps chat to like minded souls!
