I beat my deadline by about 5 minutes! It may not be perfect but I got the first 450 of my story out to those listed above via PM. Please let me know if you have any problems reading it. I am anxious to read your 450's folks, you may PM me back or e-mail me; Brydar at Yahoo dot com.

Hello all,

This is my first time doing WotF, and I'd like to swap my first 450 with someone(s) for feedback.
PM me if interested. Thanks!

.
Anyone willing to review a prelim 450 (460 actually) for my possible Q1?
Am of course happy to exchange, even a non-wotf if that's all you have available.
Or a flash/complete.

I'll look at it, Dustin, without the exchange. You've got my email. I don't have anything of my own ready at the moment. wotf001

I just looked at my calendar and realized we'll be midway through Q4 next weekend. Anyone up for a round of first-450 critique exchanges the weekend of Aug 15th-16th?

Edit
Just to clarify what I'd meant by "the weekend": Send me your first 450 by 11:59pm PST Friday, and I'll have your feedback done by 11:59pm PST Sunday.

No one has posted in this thread since December?
Or is my Internetweb being funky?

Anyway, with 1 month left, my inbox is open. For a swap - or just a read. I'm up for either if you don't have time to read, but want eyes on your start.

Anyone else feel a kick in the patoot from the end of last quarter and the awards riding some creativity into the beginning of this quarter?

I'm up for a (very) early first 450 word exchange if there are any takers?

I'm up to it. I have story originally started for this quarter before I had a dry spell after my Best Friend passed. I ended up cleaning up a submission that was rejected for an anthology for Q2 instead.

So, PM me the file and I'll see about PMing you mine.

My Q4 story is nowhere near started yet, but I'll be happy to exchange 450 critiques with anyone this quarter. So PM/email me if you have one ready, and I will send mine as soon as I have something written!

Do I have someone's 450?
I've got one on my desktop, and I can't find in my e-mail where I received it. Very strange because I'm an e-mail freak...
Anyway, reply here or send a PM if I have yours and haven't replied.
Incidentally, very good anonymity. wotf009

ETA: Mystery solved!

I'm planning a trip for the rest of this quarter, but my mailbox will open back up for Q1 on Oct 2nd.

I'm in. Is this still a thing? How do I get in on this?

Something I'm confused on: If we're supposed to be keeping these confidential - no names, no titles, whatever - how does swapping my story bit with Writer X's story bit, and critiquing on each other's work remain confidential? I know that I got Writer X's work, and Writer X knows they got my work... doesn't that reduce the confidentiality? Can someone explain please?

The people you specifically need confidentiality from are the judges. Anything that might identify your story should be discussed in private confidence (PM or e-mail) with the person/people with whom you trade, in order to prevent disqualification. It is a bit of an honor system in that you're trusting your fellow entrants to keep from publically reveal anything about your work, but they're trusting you to do the same, so it evens out.
If a person offend you, and you are in doubt as to whether it was intentional or not, do not resort to extreme measures; simply watch your chance and hit him with a brick. ~ Mark Twain
