Seems that I now have a Q4 story complete and ready to submit.

If anyone has the time to review this 450, I would be thrilled and gladly look at theirs in return.

I only got one or two requests before, so how bad can it be? Maybe I'll have to go pay some of the other board members to come over here and post so they can bury my offer.

Ehem! I will redact (did I use that word right?) the offer to critique when I get too full of requests. I will also offer it again when I free up my schedule.

And Yes Dustin send away!

Ok everyone! I just send back all the 450's I got requests for. I'm off this weekend on a business trip with my husband and family and when I come back I'll be neck deep in writing a novel, then in and out for the rest of the month. I'm closing off my offer right now for swapping, but I DO plan on coming back and taking more at a later date for Q4. I hope to see as many of you at the workshop as possible.

Thanks all!

Jackie,

wotf006 I am looking for someone to exchange critiques with. How do you normally go about doing that? I want to submit my science fiction story this quarter. It would be nice to continue the revision process with someone providing useful input.

I'm new to the comp and the board, but keen to swap a first 450 critique. If anyone willing could PM me, I'd be a very happy little vegemite.

I'll do a 450 word swap for you, Kairi. I'm concerned about your use of the term "vegemite" because that word will cause a LOT of the members to cringe with revulsion.

You shouldn't mention it, but equally it *might* be okay and it will allow you to cringe when some start talking about S'mores :)
