My story was workshopped today. Apart from the usual technical issues involving grammar and mechanics:
Pretty much everyone hated the characters, the frame story and the entire concept. I was told it's been done, to death, and although it was "well written for what it is" there's no saving it.
Yeah. I dunno. I mean, I got a few positive comments, but the majority are pretty much negative. I'm not exactly sure what to write about now. I'm not good with deep explorations of human emotion in social situations, but apparently that is what people want.
I think I need to rethink my major.
On an a slightly unrelated note, I hate writing sonnets.
