You’ve read for me. Mostly I’m worried about the first paragraph. I’ll send it to you later. Thanks.

I know I didn’t get back to a few people on requests - we’ve had an unusually stressful year - but all of you are welcome to shoot me your 450s. Best,

Hi everybody,

My name is Michael and I am generally new to this thread. This is my first time trying WoTF, and I was wondering if anyone was interesting in swapping the first 450 words for so for quarter 4. If so, please PM,

Thanks so much, Michael.

Becky,

I did. I replied on Aug 7. I just resent.

I didn't send mine. I am planning to send a later draft to you if that's OK.
Actually, the 450 is about done. Now to get the ending where I want it. :O

Weird. I have nothing from you. I’ll keep checking and let you know if it shows up.

Correction, I have one message from you from Aug 7 and nothing since.

Your 450 was solid and I only had general thoughts.

I'm up for swaps if anyone has them - send me a PM (it doesn't have to be for Q4 if you don't have a draft right now). wotf008 I'm working on three drafts but can get the first 450 words of my preferred (until I change my mind again) one ready by Monday at the latest.
35: R R R | 36: R HM ? ?

Probably free for critique swaps, but double-check in case I'm away.
If you're a new writer and concerned about giving a critique, you're welcome to send me something anyway. :)
