Wasted - SciFi/Action/Humour - 10k (1 Viewer)

TITLE: Wasted -you're very welcome to suggest better titles;

GENRE: Action-Science-Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic and Humor;

WORD COUNT: 10,000 words ca (Disclaimer: I have Darren's permission to post this Short-Story in here.);

BLURB: A post-apocalyptic parade that follows Falco, a questionable survivor, on a treasure hunt;

SENSITIVE CONTENT: It contains occasional uncouth language, gunfights and death scenes. No gore;

AUDIENCE DESCRIPTION: Due the occasional blood spill and cuss word, I'd say +18. But the humorous tone would suit any teen that is not easily impressed by the harshness of reality;

EXPECTATIONS: Your general impressions on the story. From English syntax to assessment, character's build, plot-line. What is wrong and what does work for you.
My aim is to see this story somewhere, either on a magazine or in a collection. Please, help me understand how to achieve that. Just tell me what you think of it!

I'd like to believe a month would be enough. No-one is in a hurry though;

AVAILABLE FORMATS: I usually share PDF through email but it's all about a couple of clicks to change formats, so let me know of your preference.

EXTRA INFO: This story was written last year and edited, as much as I was able to, at that time. I then put it away in a drawer in the attempt to forget about it. Now, it's time to get it out of there, collect your precious opinions and finish it.

End of February? Better get to work on my time machine.

Fancy a swap? I have a ~9k medical themed horror ready for a beta. Quite gory though.

Thanks for the heads up, I edited it.

Sure, why not. From humor to horror. They both start with "H" after all.
