Critiques 4 U

halloween-1743227_1920Well, folks, in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s October. For me, that means ordering Halloween costumes, enjoying the leaves changing color, and baking all the pumpkin stuff.  On the blogging front, Ange and I kicked off our Resident Writing Coach program last week with our first post, which was a humdinger from April Bradley, and the next one will be out next week. Since there was a gap in our calendar, I figured it was a good time for…

CRITIQUES 4 U!

~~CONTEST IS CLOSED!~~

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!

The Emotion Thesaurus is my go-to whenever I’m stuck with emotions–and for whatever reason, emotions are one of the hardest things for me to write. The Motivation Thesaurus sounds like something else I need.
Thanks for the giveaway!

What a generous offer. How do you find the time with everything else you do? I’m impressed. I love what one of the commenters called her novel or her manuscript: she referred to her WIP as her story-embryo. Perfect word choice, very vivid. I bet she’a a fantastic author. So, yes, please put my name in the hat. I would be honored to receive a critique from you.

Thank you for the opportunity. This is very generous of you. I can’t wait for your motivation thesaurus. It’s hard for me to write my characters’ motivation when I suffer from my own lack. You have given me a treasure trove from which to dig. Thank you.
