Comment to 'Beta reader for science fiction'
  • Hi Jim, 

    It was a little tough to follow mainly because of the formatting. Maybe next time, a PDF?  

    In any case, Sci-Fi poses a challenge when it comes to worldbuilding vs getting into the action. We want the reader to get an idea of the world (which we are very proud of dreaming up!) and sometimes make action second fiddle. However, I’d say action should lead the way. The question is - what action exactly?

    I had a hard time pulling out what was what and who was doing what, and why. Perhaps make the character goals clear at the start of their sections?

    Hope that helps!
