The “you” perspective just doesn work at all. Is this designed to be a litRPG style novel, or a fantasy style novel? Either way, the you perspective just strictly doesn work. I never seen it work outside of pick your own adventure games, and it not working here. You can tell me how to think or act, so trying to tell a story through my eyes strictly wont work.
Like the rest of the people echoed here, change your perspective or change your medium. It simply not going to be enjoyable for most people
canada goose uk black friday It honestly really hard to critique the rest of the story, because I feel like everything will change if you change the perspective. Right now, nothing that you presented to me really feels believable. I never pictured the town, or the events that were happening, I felt really disconnected from the entire canada goose store story, but I think it strictly due to the perspective the story is told from. canada goose uk black friday
canada goose uk outlet The take on the story, the bored narrative from the first person you meat, and the nonplussed “it all a game” attitude is fun and interesting, so I would love to read your rewrite if you are willing to change the perspective. canada goose uk outlet
Canada Goose Parka Well, I was curious about why overlapping dialogue was an issue for you. I tend to write a lot of my less formal dialogue with the characters cutting each other off in buy canada goose jacket their sentences. I feel that it can be used to display a sense of either casualness or tension between a pair of characters. Canada Goose Parka
canada goose black friday sale It important to grasp that the way you read things, isn always the way that someone else reads it. Interrupting dialog is hard to consistently do because you can guarantee that the reader will notice that you finished your sentence with ” ” and think, “OMG, she talking over him.” A canada goose outlet lot of times, especially when we have been reading for hours, we just see the end quotes and move on to the next sentence, which means that if you want to use the fact that she interrupts everything that he says. we will miss that entirely, and just process it as if he had finished his sentence and got an answer. If you look back at the dialog and Canada Goose sale pretend that we don realize that every one of those sentences are interrupted, does it truly convey what you wanted to convey? canada goose black friday sale
You want your story to always be clear, you want people to always grasp the concept, which means that you have to reinforce everything you are trying to do. If you want to keep the interrupts, that great, but include a description that shows that she is cutting him off, include her anger or irritation at him that causes her to cut him off. That way you canada goose don have to worry that if I blink at the wrong time, or have gotten tired of reading, or just didn pay close enough attention, that I haven missed the narrative you are trying to create.
Canada Goose Jackets Also, the laser comment is still a bit odd for me. I wasn aware that there was a “standard” way to portray lasers within cyberpunk. I think the only time I seen lasers within the cyberpunk novels I read have been at the end of Neuromancer, where Canada Goose Jackets
Twin tight beams of light, ruby red needles, stabbed from the region of Riviera sternum. The ninja grunted, reeled back, hands to his eyes, then found his balance.
uk canada goose Although to the best of my knowledge nothing asserting this as a standard within cyberpunk, so it fully possible that the version of lasers you have can be found within other cyberpunk novels. It just, I wasn aware there was any sort of widespread convention for me to defile and get “all the cyberpunk fans” mad. uk canada goose
canada goose coats The core cyberpunk novels I read have been the Sprawl trilogy (Neuromancer, Mona Lisa Overdrive, and Count Zero) and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip Dick, neither of which places particular stock on realism per se. I mean, the entire concept of the matrix within Neuromancer is pure fantasy, which makes sense given that Gibson wasn a computer science guy, Canada Goose online he was a hippie who really liked taking hallucinogens. It canada goose clearance sale from this background that I just find myself confused about the concern for realism within a cyberpunk setting. For me, cyberpunk always been about authenticity over realism. Is jacking yourself into the matrix to hack a computer realistic? No, but it feels “authentic” and true to the genre, which contrasts the devastating poverty and overcrowded nature of the physical world with the freedom able to be found within the virtual world. canada goose coats
cheap Canada Goose Like I said before, I not denying any of what you felt while reading this novel, I just find myself confused by the reasoning and could do with an explanation. cheap Canada Goose
canada goose clearance sale It actually fine to describe the way that you want to describe your lasers, but lasers in general are an absolute thing. Every human knows what a laser weapon looks like, it a bright beam of light that vaporizes or burns anything it touches. You have the freedom within your world to describe it, as long as you don try and change a laser from being a laser. Maybe I used realism when I meant authenticity, and I apologize for that, but the point that I trying to make is canada goose coats that lasers are something from the real world, the exist in today age, in movies, books, tv shows, and everything else. If you want to use a laser, you have to make sure your description matches it. When I read that sentence, if you hadn told me it was a laser, I wouldn have pictured a laser doing anything you described. This creates a conflict in my mind, because you say, “This is a laser” but everything that followed, I want to picture something else. Perhaps it as simple as adding more light into the sentence would resolve the issue, but the picture that popped into my head had nothing to do with a laser, and that meant that I struggled to place a laser into the scene at all. canada goose clearance sale
Canada Goose Outlet If this is meant to be the first chapter of a book, it really rough to start out. It pretty hard to hook a reader by starting out with an action scene (even though it seems the most obviously way) because it both, been extremely overdone and there is too much going on. The hardest part here is that you are going to try and convince someone that this is a unique cheap Canada Goose and special story without introducing anything special. Centaurs and Wood Elves fighting, that been done. Magic users, that been done. A bloody battle that ended by canada goose coats on sale someone sacrificing themselves, that been done. Canada Goose Outlet
Canada Goose online Since this is your buy canada goose jacket cheap very first chapter, it the chapter that I going to read when I at a bookstore. I read the name and the cover and wonder, what this like, and then read this chapter. Then I put it back on the shelf and find another one. There wasn anything here that said, “Hey, READ THIS BOOK” it just said, “Hey, we gots that fighting stuff going on.” Some readers will be hooked, and some will pass it up. Your goal is to figure out canadagooseonsale.biz how to hook as many people as possible. Canada Goose online
Canada Goose Coats On Sale If you want to start off on a fight scene, that perfectly fine, but you got to make the first scene compelling, interesting, and most of all, unique. Your sentences canada goose deals will have to flow together perfect, weaving a battle scene that draws me and and places me into the action, and something that has to happen to make me go, “Wow”. Right now, nothing happens that makes me go anything more than, “Okay.” Canada Goose Coats On Sale
This is something you really need to work on, because it ruins some really good descriptions and makes it hard to follow Canada Goose Parka along with the fight. I shouldn ever have to read a sentence again to figure out what you meant by it. To help understand this, let me give you some examples.
canada goose uk shop How could she hope to kill any? Memories flowed into place. A splotched centaur sailed by, and she struck at his leg canada goose uk shop
Memories of what flowed into place? What is she remembering? That sentence is just there out of place, and it lacks any form Canada Goose Outlet of description and doesn add to the story. I not longer involved in the action because I still trying to place what the hell you meant by, “memories flowed into place” You can just toss that out there and expect the reader to add their own memories.

canada goose coats on sale A puff of air, she ducked, she could feel someone behind her. canada goose coats on sale
Ummm. I think you are trying to tell me, “She felt air moving canada goose black friday sale behind her and so she ducked in response” but the way your sentences is structured just leaves me a little bit confused about what happened. You follow that up with “A war axe grazed her scalp, drawing welling beads of crimson.” which means that you definitely meant that she felt the air behind her move and so she ducked, but until I read that sentence, I wasn sure what you where talking about, which pulled me from the story.
Striking, striking, the assaults wouldn relent, she dodged again and again, perpetually on her toes, but she wouldn last long.
I mean, this is just lazy. You repeat the first word twice, and then repeat again and canada goose clearance again. Nothing here tells me how many times she dodged (I guess two, because you said both words twice) but she was also perpetually on her toes and would last long.
