YouWriteOn.com is a tough crowd

The British Arts Council has this thing called YouWriteOn.com. It's like Authonomy.com but a bit more formal--and far more stringent in its requirements. So I put up one of my manuscripts I'm shopping around (the Death of a Young Lieutenant script) and finally received two reviews--you need five reviews for it to be considered by agents, publishers, etc.

What's interesting about the reviews is this; both liked the story. But one was either an agent or editor. He gave good ratings on… Continue
