Re: Mythical Boy - rewrite & ch. 2
It's pretty darn good, I must say.
It has the aspects of a good fantasy horror, probably the closest genre to what my own stuff falls into (as of yet). I like the style of writing thus far, I am a fan of Gareth already! I'd like to see him humanised some more, so there's a really grey area when it comes to evaluating him? It's nice to make the reader sympathise with him, then be disgusted with themselves as they realise just WHO they're sympathising! I think giving him some more 'normal' feelings or situations mixed amongst his lust for blood (something as simple as him eating a prison meal and comparing it to his favourite food?) would be a good way of getting a 'more real' picture of Gareth. A way for readers to get inside his head a little easier?
Anyway, keep it up and good luck with the third chapter!
