Yesterday evening I finished a rough draft of my new short story, “The Story of G”. As I’ve mentioned here before, “The Story of G” is my follow-up to last year’s Writers of the Future Honorable Mention “PFTETD”. (I mean follow-up as in it’s my next short story and next potential entry into the WotF contest.)
“The Story of G” is not the actual title. I’m not indicating what the real title is, yet, because I still haven’t decided on it. That’s one of the bits of feedback I’ll be looking for from first readers (I have a few options I am mulling).
Dear Wife has already read it. She says she likes it better than “PFTETD”. That’s encouraging news. There are some caveats, of course, but I won’t publicly share the specifics of her feedback – in part because the specifics of feedback are a private matter, and in part because I don’t want to taint future beta readers.
So… if you’re got a little free time and don’t mind lending a helping hand, I’m looking for beta readers to provide a little feedback. It’s a fairly short story – a little under 8,000 words, which is quite a bit longer than my target of 6,000 words, but it’s still not terribly long. Let me know if you’d be willing to help. I’ll try to make myself available for beta reads and feedback in return.
