About This Gig

Art is subjective, all forms of it. Whether you're drawing, painting, sculpting, or even writing, there is always someone who will look at what you've created with a critical eye and offer their insight to it. Which is exactly what I want to do to help.

For $5, I am willing to critique, analyze, and give feedback on the following criteria up to 5,000 words per basic gig.

  • Character development
  • Pacing
  • Dialogue
  • Sentence structure
  • Grammar
  • Consistency
  • Use of perspective and tense

I will also be able to answer any questions that you as the author wish me to answer. Simply provide the questions and I will give them to the best of my ability or knowledge. If there are any certain parameters to the critique depending on what you need, don't hesitate to let me know.

Please note however that this gig is for critiquing creative writing only. I will not proofread, or offer re-writing services for this unless you buy an additional gig or package that I offer that gives those services. Also note that my critiques are subjective, and are not a universal answer. They are more or less there to help you as an author improve based on a readers perspective.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's the maximum word count for a basic gig?
    Up to 5,000 words per basic gig. The reason for that is it takes me roughly a half hour to read at that pace, outline my critiques, and answer all questions presented. Additional packages or gig purchases can easily extend that however
  • How many words are included in your critique? How in depth does it go?
    I generally try to aim for around 1,000 words per critique and answer at least 4 questions I feel the story needs work on. I generally try to avoid giving too much praise, as the whole purpose of the gig is to find areas of improvement.
  • Do I have to do what your critiques suggest?
    No. As was mentioned in the basic gig description each critique I give is entirely subjective from the point of view of a reader. In fact, you don't have to take any of my recommendations at all.
  • What if you don't like the genre I hired you for?
    While there are some genre's that I'm not a fan of, I generally try to put myself in the shoes of a reader who enjoys the genre I was hired for. So all critiques come from that perspective.
