Critique Corner is Live!

Hey Everyone! Welcome to the February 2015 round of Critique Corner. The writing excerpts are up for you to read, and very ready for your comments. You’ll find each 500 word submission listed in a separate post below, and with its own comment box. Just scroll down (or back) to find each one. We have 7 amazing entries from some very talented writers. You’re definitely in for a treat!

Anyone reading is encouraged to offer their feedback. Please remember to keep your comments positive and constructive. However, these writers really want to make their work stronger, so be as honest as you can. If you are one of the participants, please comment on each of the other samples as a way of giving back. The round will be open all week, but I’m hoping you can get your comments in by the end of the weekend, if possible. Remember, Melyssa Mercado (critique partner extraordinaire!) will be dropping in to comment on each of the subs at some point during the round, and I will be too (as swirl and spark) so keep checking back!

Thank you so much to the writers who have submitted. I so appreciate you putting your work out there for us all to read. Hopefully with a little help from our writing community, you’ll be able to make it sparkle!

And so here we go…Grab a warm snickerdoodle cookie, a cup of tea or coffee, and pull up a chair at our virtual meeting spot. I can’t wait to read all the great work and connect with some new writing friends!

    Hey Jackie!!

    Thanks so much for letting me be a part of Critique Corner today, AND for hosting such an amazing site that helps writers of all ages!!

    *hands over snickerdoodles and all the caramel things* (-:

    (She’s pretty fantastic, ya’ll).

    And I just wanted to say that I LOVED reading everyone’s entries! You guys are all mega talented!! Please remember that, like anything else in this business, feedback can also be very subjective. I always say, multiple crits can feel like 567 living room makeovers, but at the end of the day you have to be comfortable on your own couch. #truth

    Hope everyone gets tons of useful feedback today!! (-:
