Meet Swift Mittens who just got reincarnated as a 10-year-old catling after a traffic accident. Having just woken up in a new world with no real explanation, our kitten shows he lacks any common sense whatsoever while he tries to cope with his situation as good as he can: being alone in the middle of nowhere, with no fixed shelter, no stable source of food — but with a kind of gaming interface and his not so helpful knowledge from playing MMOs in his past life. A good start to an adventure… or it would be an adventure if he didn’t hole himself up in the middle of the forest in the first place!

It's fine, though not great. Early, heavy infodump and stiff internal narration.


Too much talking, not enough description.

Reviewed at: 1-34: Spinning Magic Yarn

Too much talking, not enough description. Characters also seem 1d.


 Your story has good draw. And while most of the o the reviews are true if not a tad harsh, most can be dealt with by gaining experience, self and story reflection and of course research by reading others stories. Just don't be afraid to take a step forward take a partial step back to reflect and gain experience so you can step forward again 


Seems very similar to another story

Reviewed at: 1-52: The Mad Cow Disease

This story seems really similar to the Web novel "The man picked up by the gods" I think it's called. Like a lot of the talking points are very similar, and the situations the MC get into seem almost 1 to 1.
