@DA01 I agree. I have no idea why this board hasn't been renamed Scott.StackExchange.com yet.

comment Does this urge you to read further or stop?
@dmm of course, point taken, but what specifically caught my eye was "Sector 4" (District 12), the idea that you had to get up early to get eggs in that sector, a dividing Wall which has to be monitored, and the idea that the narrator risks being "chosen" for something terrible. "Exciting and future-determining" isn't "being reaped for death." I haven't read The Giver so I can't say if THG rips it off. I have read THG, so I am saying to the OP that as a reader, that's the first thing I notice.

comment What should be avoid and what should be included : designing a new sport web-magazine website?
Your question is too broad. "What goes into a website" is dependent on the content, the audience, and what the site's owner wants to achieve. "Where items should go" and "not too busy" — well, that's design, isn't it? We can't tell you that. Every site will have different answers to those questions, and the answers can change for the same site over time.

comment Pulling the reader out of the narrative: When it's too much?
Not to mention the description is kind of creepy. The narrator's own mother is being described in glowing sexual terms. Would you ever say your mom had firm breasts? Even if you could bounce a quarter off them?

My immediate thought is that this is a fairly direct lift of The Hunger Games with a little Divergent thrown in. So no, I don't want to read any more, because it smacks of "ripoff" to me. Sorry. Your story may in fact be quite original, but that's not the vibe I'm getting here.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. We have specific guidelines about asking for help with a written work. meta.writers.stackexchange.com/questions/166/… "Help me make it better" is too vague for us to do anything with.

Again... it's web-based software, and it has a monthly subscription fee. I want something I can purchase, once, and download, once, and use even if offline.
