Hey! I wanted to ask everyone if there might be a few people willing to read my book I wrote when I was sixteen and help me figure out what needs changed?

I love the story and I really believe there’s potential there with the story and I even have a series planned out for it, but there’s really cringy chapters [ basically all of it ] and a VERY questionable racy chapter that I feel like I could handle SO much better than I did, but I have a really hard time focusing and not the best knowledge of things so if I could have someone help me figure out what to fix and not fix it would be great!

I don’t have any money sadly,so I have to ask this of you as a huge favor, and maybe it can be like a fun group thing? Im not sure, but you would definetly be credited for your help in the story! I just know that right now it’s a cringy- not very well written mess and and I really need outside opinions that are willing to give proper feedback [ as long as you aren’t rude about it I don’t mind, I know it’s a disaster story right now, but I know it can definetly be improved ]

So, anyway, if anyone is up for it just for the fun, or the experience, or the credit in the book, I would be down! I don’t really know how to do this stuff and I’m awful with people but I figured asking one of the groups I’m in- someone might find joy in helping someone out! I want this book to be good and there’s still a few chapters left of it but I don’t want to write them until I’m sure the book is decent. Love you all, thank you 💕

I don’t have the time to edit a whole book but if you want to put the first 3-4 paragraphs here I’ll share my thoughts.

Ah... pardon me for being blunt, but almost every writer has a wip, work in process.

You’re not finishing the creative process by asking for feedback on an entire book until you’ve made the first draft as perfect as you can make it yourself. Self-editing is where any book gets transformed from a mess into something that’s worthy of someone else’s skills and time.

I would suggest you first revise each chapter yourself as it’s an older piece of work, and then find a couple of critique partners to go through chapters with you.
