ARE YOU IN?


I know lots of people are busy with A-Z right now, but I thought I'd like to host a critique fest.  I've done it before, but it's been a while.  If you are interested in having something peer critiqued, email me:  Title, Genre, and your first 100 words (don't end in the middle of a sentence).  I'll post all of them on Thursday so the critiquing can begin.  I ask that you submit no more than 2 pieces to be critiqued.  If you submit a piece I hope that you will critique at least five pieces.  

So...Are you in?

  1. Very cool...I look forward to reading your posts but cannot participate until summer when I have time to write.

    Happy A-Z April!

  2. Hey Sharon,
    Oops, four in the morning in lil' ol' England and I'm leaving a comment. I shall go and get some sleep after this :)
    Ah yes, that A to Z Challenge. Did you know that Lee who started the whole darn thing has declared that I'm and I quote, "You have been appointed as the official anti-A to Z spokesman." Who would of thought that eh :)
    I shall have to give it a pass on your peer critique. Wouldn't be fair on the rest of them if I got involved. Note how humble I am.
    Take care Sharon and happy writing.
    Hugs, Gary

  3. Since I'm new to this...are we to submit a piece already written (i.e.) blog post or something new and unseen by human eye previously? Smiles - Astrid

  8. Hi Sharon. If I wasn't participating in the A to Z Challenge, I'd participate in your critique fest. I'll stop by to read your posts and anything that anyone chooses to share. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity for everyone who participates.

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter.

  20. Critique sessions are always helpful. But I think my current project has been critiqued out the wazoo, so I'm passing on this one. I'll come back though and see what others out there are writing. I always find that interesting!

    Good luck everyone!

  28. What a great idea - did you post it on Verla Kay's board? I'll bet some of the writers over there would be interested in participating.
