Please do not respond to this out of any feelings of guilt or obligation or pity. Only if you really want to.
Would anyone be up to a *quick* read-through? It doesn't even have to be the whole thing. I'll take whatever I can get, writers and non-writers alike. This is last-minute talking here, people. Any kind of feedback would be welcome, even gut-reactions to the first 20 words.
And I will not be offended or hurt or depressed if no one responds. So please don't say yes out of pity. Only if you have a strong desire to do this -- and the time.
