Nine responses to the first Friday Fiction with Ronovan Writes. I call that better than expected. You will notice this is more of a round-up than a review. Being that these are long works of fiction and so many aspects of writing could be commented on, I felt it best to give the links and a blurb about each piece. The story ideas for each had their own merits. And as with my own work, we each had areas we could improve upon. But then, that is one reason we are doing this. One reason all writers do challenges, to keep improving.
As we continue with these challenges I’ll find a balance between blurbs and my insanity at reviewing and hopefully bring some entertainment to the table.
The order appearing is the order in which the entry was received.
That sinking feeling.
