Review of Undiscovered  
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
Hello Octavius, PM here to review your story.

Getting eaten alive by bugs is a good premise for a horror story. It's creepy in a good way. Just a few technical things:

“We did it baby!” (There should be a comma after "it")

“I know it seems a little- (There should be a closing pair of quotation marks after "little-")

“Gurl, you’ll never discover anything new sitting at this desk job” (there should be a period after "job".)

“Oh, no” she wailed,( There should be an exclamation mark after "no".)

“Help” Terij’s voice called in a low, desperate tone. (There should be an exclamation point after "Help".)

“Where, is she?” (No comma is needed here)

You change between past to present tense a couple of times. It would be better to keep the story in one tense or the other. Examples:

Samantha presses the brake pedal and slowed the Prius to a halt ("presses" should be "pressed" assuming you keep it in past tense)

onto a mushroom that shoot white spores into her face ("shoot" should be "shot" here)

It's a good premise. With some technical things fixed it could be a great story.

I hope you find this helpful.

Hello, PM here to review your story.

Wow! This is brilliant. I love how you tie the present arguments to the ancient biblical story. I also love how you discover towards the end what it really is. My one criticism is that they wouldn't have had cell service back then. Otherwise, perfect.

Hello Austin, PM here to review your piece.

I like the idea here. It's romantic and beautiful.

I see you have this listed as flash fiction but it reads more like a poem to me. I don't see a plot. I would flesh it out a bit and add a few dialogue tags. You don't need one with every line but adding an occasional one would clarify who is speaking when and make it easier to follow.

Also I would replace one of the words, "air" in the first line since having two of them is a little redundant. You could use "breeze" "atmosphere" or any other synonym.

This has the potential to be a gorgeous love story. I think it would be if you flesh it out some and elaborate. Thanks for sharing.

Hello, PM here to return the favor of a good review. This is a beautiful testimony. You have done a great job of summarizing the Christian faith, of which I am a fellow believer. I learned that He had 12 disciples instead of 13. May God bless you, my sister in Christ. ~ PM

Hello, PM here to return the favor of a review. This is interesting, and a good start to your novel.

Being a photography major your title drew me in. I was expecting there to be more content about actually photographing the Wyvern. Maybe you touch on this in later installments?

My only edit would be this sentence:

"The monster I'm going on a road trip with my 2 closest friends to hunt."

This seems like a sentence fragment to me. I would suggest:

"This is the monster I'm going on a road trip with my 2 closest friends to hunt."

However, this is consistent with the voice your character uses so I understand if you'd prefer to leave it as is. I do like her lifelike diction.

You are off to a good start. I wish you the best with your novel.

This is beautiful. As a fellow Christian I love the message. I felt this was something God wanted me to read. I like that you have some rhyme going on but I would make the rhyme pattern/rythm a little more consistent. Still good work, though.

Thank you for reviewing my story a few days ago. I wanted to return the favor.

This is an interesting piece. I like your diction and your sentence structure. I get that they are polyamorous but it seems a little odd that they are so cool with their partners freely doing other people. It seems slightly hard to believe. I am not familiar with the franchise this is based off of so I had a little difficulty following some parts, but you have provided enough details that I can still get a good sense of the characters and plot.

Nice work ~ PM
