Q4 swap - 7,500 words

Postby Helen Jackson » Tue Sep 16, 2014 6:44 am

Is anyone up for a critique exchange for Q4? I'd be looking for feedback by the end of this week (Sun 21 Sept), and I'd be able to get comments to you within the same timescale.

I take part in an offline writers' group so I'm used to reading critically and providing feedback. I haven't traded a crit through the forum before -- if you have any tips about the sort of comments that would be useful, or the level of detail you expect, that would be very helpful!

As for my record within the competition... I've written 5 stories with WotF in mind (as opposed to submitting a story I had to hand) and they've received: one semi, one silver HM (remember them?!), one HM, and two Rs, all from Dave.

Email me your story if you'd like to exchange.

Hi Helen,

I don't know if you're still up for it, given the deadline, but I've got a 7.5K story to swap if you're interested. If not, no worries. I know you're probably working hard on wrapping it up.

Best,

Rick

Sorry, Rick, I've only just seen your post -- I've been busy on my final draft. Yes, I'm afraid it's too close to the deadline now. I'd be delighted to swap stories next quarter if that works for you?

Good luck with Q4.
