Someone I can bounce ideas and tell me what ideas work and what don't. Of course I still want constructive criticism, I'd just prefer a more in-depth critique after my first draft is finished. Right now I'm 70K words in and roughly halfway through, but I'm currently taking a brief hiatus to rewrite my first 5 chapters. As for the novel itself... I want it to be a serious, intelligent, and morally-complex story focusing on two characters from opposite sides of World War II. It primarily takes place in Nazi Germany and occupied Poland and covers a period from 1939 to 1948. Given the time period/setting there were inevitably be some graphic violence, along with explicit sex and sensitive subject matter. Just wanted to get that out of the way. If you're interested, please shoot me a pm! I'd love to give you a plot summary as well as send you the outline if you're interested. It covers about 90% of the story except for the third act.
Did you find someone to read your ms.? If not, maybe I can help.
