Happy almost March, everyone! There are a lot of things about life that drive me a little bonkers—so much so that I often need to remind myself of the good stuff that’s happening. Snow days wreak havoc on my work routine, but I love the excitement and joy they bring to my kids. The cold weather is getting a little old by the end of February, but it makes spring that much more satisfying when it rolls around. So take a minute today to look at the bright side and be reminded of the good things in life. Like free critiques, for example…
CRITIQUES 4 U!
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)
Also, please be sure your first page is ready to go so I can critique it before next month’s contest rolls around. If it needs some work and you won’t be able to get it to me right away, I’d like to ask that you plan on entering the next contest, once any necessary tweaking has been taken care of. 🙂
~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!
