Writing Critique

25


25 per hour Virtual OK

I will critique your writing, be it an essay or a novel. I can provide a critique via email, voice chat, or by telephone. It's entirely your choice. I have a firm yet fair style of critiquing, so please only ask for my help if you are prepared for the possibility that I may pick it to pieces.

I specialize in critiquing stories, but I can also make sure an essay is informative and well defended as well. Speech presentations are welcome as well. If you want a deep structural analysis, I'm your guy.

Some things I will NOT comment on:
Spelling and grammar problems (unless they are excessive)
The subject of your essay or the idea of your story

Some thigs I WILL comment on:
Factual accuracy (or believability if it is fantasy)
Characterization
World building
Pacing
Narrative quality
Strengths and weaknesses of arguments (for essays and presentations)

Lastly, I'm a nice guy with a big heart. I want to help you. I'm not going to tear anything apart or belittle you. I want to help you make the best work you can make and I cannot do that without respecting you and your work with complete honesty. :)

My rate is 25 simbi per hour. On average I can read about 10,000 words per hour. I will round my services based on the number of words to the nearest hour to a minimum of one hour. If your work is super short, we can absolutely work out something that is more fair.

Training & Qualifications


I am a self-published author and have sold my book at conventions. I also know what a zarf is. Anyone who knows what a zarf is wihout having to look it up is bound to have some writing talent, right? Right??

Availability & Preferences


My availability changes over time. We can work something out.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I teach the art of assholery!
It seems like a fresh new experience and a way to get out of my shell and possibly make some friends for once. Or at least earn and hoard Simbi, that way I can feel proud of myself. I WILL BE A SIM...

About Dennis Decker

Hey there! I'm a fun-loving guy with remarkably narrow interests. I'm a bit on the odd side. I'm super socially awkward. Very introverted, you know? And kinda fugly, too, I guess. And self-deprecatin...g. Hm. I also appreciate some good ol' dark humor! I'm super personable, so if you want to chat just hit me up! I can usually respond within 24 hours. As far as my narrow interests, one thing I really enjoy is fiction writing. I have one self-published novel so far and I've written several short stories that I hope to eventually put together in one really strange anthology! My novel is part of a much larger planned series and I've already started on the second book. I also enjoy movies. There's no specific genre I prefer as long as it tells a good story, but I do tend to float closer to horror. I can be really critical of movies these days as I have become rather jaded. I love games of all kinds! Tabletop games, video games, whatever. I love them all! I normally play video games though, since tabletop games typically require friends to play with! (Friends. Hm.)show more
