The First Draft – General Feedback
If you’re putting a first draft out to be critiqued (especially if it’s unedited), it is best not to ask for things about spelling, grammar, or wording. The absolute best thing to do for critiquing a first draft is what I refer to as general feedback. This is, essentially, a reader’s impression of the story. Do you like the story and the characters? What don’t you like about it? What do you like about it? This is the most important feedback to get in a first draft because first drafts are the skeleton of the story. In all likelihood, you’re probably going to rewrite the story after this, or make some sort of massive changes. General feedback on the story is what you need, because before you can make the prose perfect, you should make the story perfect.
