I'm a novice writer, nothing special here. Just hoping some of these more seasoned keyboard/penwo/men can teach me some of their tricks.

I supposed this would've worked if it was a journal-sort of story, but since I'm trying to tell it how it is at the moment, I think this, inching slightly closer to first-person view, works much better. This helps a lot, thank you.

I get it: leave out unnecessary details about precise areas. Keep sentences short and to the point and only show important details. Stay terse and brief on action sequences. Subject is placed first. "-ing" words are deprioritized, if that's even a word. Thank you for the help.

Alright, I think I got it. I'll go with the first suggestion (setting then character), so give the reader the setting (i.e. the forest) and THEN tighten the perspective to just the character. Brief, precise paragraphs with some lengthier ones. Pace them properly and add breaks. Thank you very much for your time. On an unrelated note, since this website isn't the place to do so as the FAQ tells, do you know of a forum where I can post this up or find a beta reader to help?
