Word(s) Up, G.  Reply with quote  

So my little brain has been working again. Scary, that.

Lauren recently joined a writing group with some of her work cohorts. Shes inspired me yet again. Ive been intending to join one for a long while, and I wandered about the web, searching for a bunch of quasi-intelligent people to read/edit/enjoy.

Then it occurred to me: I might not be the only one interested in doing something like this on this very board.

So anybody up for it? I would love to see if we have any interest. Basically wed have a week or two to throw a scene/chapter whatever together, then wed email/post it somewhere for group critiques (not here Ive got a private webpage we could use). Respect is the major factor with something like this, so if you dont have words other than WOW THIS SUCKS in your vocabulary, Id suggest not volunteering. Also, we have a diverse group. If you don't like reading/editing different genres, this might not be the place for you.

If this sounds like something anyone would be interested in doing, drop me a Private Message or an email at lazyjade@hotmail.com. If we have enough folk, we can try to get together somewhere on Chatzy and hash out more detailed criteria.

Gracias, amigos!

Onward!

I'm sort of interested... I don't have the time or the drive to actually do any work on my own writting, and I don't know that I would be a good critic -- its not like food or sex... I can creique the hell out of those...

BUT, I am interested in reading what other people post... I think that might be fun... and it will either make me accept the fact that I have no business writting, or give me the encouragment I need to continue writting...

if you don't want me, I won't be crushed though...

Okay, Everybody.  Reply with quote  

Great response, good sized group, too, which is nice.

I've got an email coming that will explain the way things are going to work pretty soon. Keep your eyes peeled, kids.

Also, make sure I have active, correct email addresses if you want in. This will be my last post here about it, so send me PM's or email with questions!

Thanks!

To read and review is free. To get reviewed by others, you must commit to review. Follow?

Old stuff that you want to revitalize is okay.

Just let me know what aspect of things you're interested in. Reading/Reviewing only, or reading, reviewing, and GETTING reviewed. It matters.

No seriously: LAST post.
