Hey there! I'm a newbie on this too and I was thinking exactly what you're thinking. Maybe we could help each other with editing and feedback on our writing?
Let me know if you're interested.

Hi Pringle,

Let me know if you still need help with your story.

Our moderators DO actually help edit a lot of stories when they have time (although to verify stories is their primary role), and always give constructive feedback if a story is rejected.

If I were you, I'd do as best as you can, thoroughly spellcheck the work and make sure it's formatted correctly, and see how you go!

Cheers,

Nicola

I am always happy to give feedback on stories, but my editing skills aren't up to much. I have in the passed asked lush friends to help with my own editing.
It's a great way to learn, and I feel I have improved a lot.
One thing I would say, is be careful that when someone edits the story, they are looking at grammar and spelling. I prefer it of they don't comment to much on the content of the story, as I wouldn't want them to change the direction of my story. You may find that you don't mind getting creative help, but for me I like to keep my own voice and ideas. That's not to say that I don't welcome story ideas from friends, but I still like to keep control over my original idea for the direction.

Good Luck with your writing.

Good advise. Clarify what you want the editor to focus on.

Good luck!

If you are serious about writing for this site, the first thing you should do is read the information available here in the Writer's Resources. Editing input from someone else can help you, but the quality of your work will only improve if you learn and put some effort into it. Basic things like spelling and grammar do matter, so even if your story idea is a good one, it will be ruined if it does not meet a standard of literacy.

Read some of the stories on this site that have been given EP awards as exemplars.

My career average is above 90 when it comes to spelling and grammar. (Thank you Mom & Dad) I'm also new here, haven't done any creative writing in a while, but shaking off the cobwebs. I'll be more than happy to help anyone, who can withstand an objective point of constructive critique, from a stickler for details.
