Happy November, everyone! As a recent transplant from Florida to New York, I am TOTALLY LOVING THE FALL—which, you know, never actually happens in Florida. It just shifts from ridiculously hot to uncomfortably warm. But here…The leaves changed color, my kids raked them up and jumped into piles, and for the first time ever, we didn’t sweat on Halloween. And now that our house is done and we’ve moved in, I can enjoy this wonderful view while critiquing your first pages!
But don’t worry. I won’t get distracted, because while I adore fall, I also love our monthly Critiques 4 U contest. So…if you’re working on a first page and would like some objective feedback, please leave a comment that includes:
1) your email address. Some of you have expressed concern about making your email address public; if you’re sure that the email address associated with your WordPress account is correct, you don’t have to include it here. But if you do win and I’m unable to contact you through that email address, I’ll have to choose an alternate winner.
2) your story’s genre (no erotica, please)
ONLY ENTRIES THAT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED
Three commenters’ names will be randomly drawn and posted tomorrow. If you win, you can email me your first page and I’ll offer my feedback. Best of luck!
