Some of you may know who I am, but most will not. Keeping introductions short, my name is Garnot, (pronounced Girr-naat
), I’m somewhat of a silent veteran, lurking about around the fandom since its inception. I’ve been around, and as such, know a thing or two about writing. To that end, I’ve decided to officially open up a solo thread to help anyone who seeks my services.
You’ll find me to be a fair reviewer, one who will tell you not
what you want to hear, but what you need
to hear, regardless of how ugly it may be. My one goal is to see you improve; see you take your place in the sun. That is my goal.
I strive to write unique stories, and as such, I also take on unique tales, tales other reviewers might not have a taste for. My forte is world building, creating engaging scenes, strong syntax, and good pacing, but I can also help you with dialogue, characterization, and making your story show, not tell. I’m familiar with just about any genre, though I tend to do best with Dark, Adventure, and Drama.
Here is my previous thread for those wanting to know more of my previous work alongside SLP: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/fic/res/110925.html
As for the purpose of this thread, well, that’s a bit tricky. While I’m open for anyone to submit, I’m not going to take just any type of story that is tossed at my doorstep. Instead, I will take stories that show promise, as well as effort.
If you want someone to look at your self-insert with shallow humans, little prancing strawberry elves, and more sues than can be counted on one hand, then you are best served with another reviewer.
If, you story is well thought out, has a theme that ties character and narration, and shows effort, then you are by all means welcome with open arms. This thread is more about getting the story on track, ensuring plot works, and themes and ideas that go beyond the mundane.
