Everytime It Rains by Daniel Robinson - Short, Horror - Dan and his brother blake and sister Cassy live a rough life. They are to weak and small to fight back. But Dan gets older and sets things straight once and for all. 8 pages - pdf, format
The dialogue was, to be honest, kind of bad. That defiantly needs some work.
Also, the descriptions need work. Like...On page 1 what was the point of telling us he's hungry when, right after that, you show him going to get food? That's where "show not tell" comes into play.
Quite a few spelling mistakes. Sometimes you would repeat things in dialogue that you had just said. Small things like that.
And why did you introduce Blake and the other children like this: (BLAKE) and you introduced Dan like DAN. You don't need to box in the names like that. How you did Dan was just fine.
There were parts that were fairly unrealistic. Like, when Joe shoots the shotgun at Ted...shotguns don't use bullets. They have thousands of little metal balls inside of them that spread out as soon as they leave the gun, meaning it would have hit him.
Other than that, it was a fairly good read. I might check some more of your work out later today.
Also, another thing you might want to do is get rid of the adult Dan talking all together. It sort of takes away any surprise. Because if we hear him as an adult, we really have nothing to worry about...because we know he made it through.
Unrealistic? This was my life man. And as far as Joe shooting of the shotgun... There are such bullets that are called Pumkin shot which is one odd shaped piece of lead not BB's. I did my reseach. But thanks for the comments.
Thanks Mike, yeah this is a story of my life and they say it's unrealistic.lol
Ummm, no...I didn't say the story didn't seem real. I was meaning that some scenes didn't seem realistic as far as facts go. I didn't know there was a thing called pumpkin shot...? Anyway, I just made a freaking comment. Take it or leave it.
