Writing a Horror/Thriller with a friend need some harsh critics

in writing •  11 months ago

Hey people im only new to Steem this week but after going over the platform and learning more about it I got thinking that maybe it could be a cool platform for users to critique a horror/thriller novel a friend and I are putting together. We are novices when it comes to writing but we both love our thriller movies and books and would be interested to see what other people thought of how we are going about it.

We were thinking of potentially putting up a first chapter on here and then letting others tell us what we could be doing differently and what they like or dislike about it. Ideally I suppose after reading the first chapter you would hope that people want to hear more but we might even explain a little of the storyline and where we are going with it. Has anyone had any experience doing this sort of thing before and do you think Steem is a good platform for it?

Would love some thriller lovers to jump on board and have a read then give us an honest assessment of what we could be doing differently.

The theme of our story relates to a single mum heading back into the dating scene and obviously things don't work exactly as she would like :)

Really like your introduction, so I also gave you an upvote.

Hi, @cryptoozie, yes it is a great idea to do that on Steemit as we are many creative here. I believe the best way to write a story is to shape it on the model of a script writing we are using in the movie world. Not make a script but build the story on the same pattern. Introduction - plot - complication of plot and solution. This pattern works either on film and books so you may give it a try. Good luck.

thankyou yeah we are definitely writing with the expectation that it is being written to become a movie. Ultimately we want to do a movie but figured the book version is where it starts :)
