Oh, I didn’t realize you were looking only to comment/critique on projects that haven’t reached funding yet.

Dude. Your book is already being published too. Why would you want a vicious criticism now? Now it’s too late if there is stuff that needs fixing. Presumably there ain’t stuff that needs fixing. One would hope anyway...

Not really. You can’t please all the people. So I tell you I’ll be mean ahead of time then, if you dislike /disagree with what I say, and think I’m overly harsh, I can say well that’s what you asked for. And if I’m not really harsh, then you can assume it’s not horrible. and might be good.

Sure, man! Check out my two chapters of Animal in Man if you’d like. They’re pretty long though, so as much as you can get through. :D

I’ve a question though: are you planning on being harsh on purpose - as in, say, "roasting" others’ work just for the sake of it? That’s kind of what it sounds like - like I can automatically expect a ’bad review’ just because... Maybe I’m just misreading the comment(s) below. Anyhow, bad or good, please let me know what you think of AiM, man. I’d really appreciate any constructive criticism!

Anyone else want some vicious criticism?

Yeah but I don’t have spare time at work to read a and critique a whole book. And no one would give much credit to one that only covered the first couple chapters.

Everyone is going to get bad reviews, no matter who you are or what you put out there. Just because my book is final and getting published, doesn’t mean that I’m not going to have someone leave bad amazon reviews because they had a grumpy day. 

So, if you are grumpy and want to leave a vicious criticism somewhere, go ahead and send it to me in PM. It gets it off your chest and warms me up for book launch. :)

@Rick Heinz  Your book is already publishing. Why would you want a harsh review? Or is there a draft you wanted me to read?

Hi Brian,
I’m sorry to hear your project didn’t get funded this time around. I’m always happy to receive constructive feedback on my work and willing to return the favour. My current project is Human Resources.

So my own project is about to sink, and with it the cast of the follow up book thus in Limbo again. And I am without something to do. I should be working on Chris’s map but that is basically done and I have a few ideas for stories but I’m undecided as to what to pursue next... So any way.

Does anyone want their story critiqued? 

Tell me where it is and I’ll go read whatever you have posted, then send you a DM with my views and nit pickings. I’ll number stuff based on paragraph from the top and list the starting word so you can find what I’m talking about. No guarantee I’ll get past the first posted chapter, but I might.

My project sank without a comment so I might be grumpy with yours but I will promise not to steal ideas without advanced notice. ;-)

One at a time only please. I will be reading it while "working" so it’ll take a day or two at least.  And you might want to wait to see how much of a jerk I am before you ask for a critiquing too.

So any takers? 
Give me 2 to finish out the week.
