Icon14 Nice Work

Building a Platform

I did exactly this, albeit by accident. I'm a new member here, so if you'll permit a somewhat lengthy post, I'll tell you how it worked for me.

This is pretty good. I can see that you have a vision. However,

No, and I already shot the tires out, now its your turn.

Great

Thanks for taking the critique constructively.

Naked exposition is where a character functions as a tool for the writer to just tell the reader what the author wants them to know. When I read the...
