Please, everyone, roll up your sleeves and help us with constructive critiques. Hopefully, all five entries are now okay on structure and bigger-picture things, and we can start narrowing our focus to things like voice-violations or POV issues, crutch words, passive voice, and so on.
Remember, for the most part, we're not line-editing. It's okay to suggest rephrasing something if it is an example of a more general problem, or if there is a section that stands out, but overall, we're looking at ways to improve the manuscript that the writer can carry forward through the whole piece.
