I've been working on a story script on and off for the past year and a half, but I haven't invited anyone to so much as look at the progress I've made since my first draft in December of 2017, meaning that as of right now I'm completely lacking an outside perspective of the story. I have somewhat more complicated plans for this project, but I want to make sure the writing is up to snuff before I start investing more time and resources on it. That's where editors come in. While I'm looking for any kind of feedback I can get, the things I'm most concerned about are the believability of the dialogue and plot points, pacing, and emotional impact.
Summary: The industrial revolution began in the remote country of Chemina, only to be hijacked by military dictator Farid Somoza. In the following decades, the first world's struggle to reduce its dependence on foreign technology has created a vacuum which Cheminan refugees are only too happy to fill. Follow Thane and his family as they fight tooth and nail to flee the country.
