'Ello, poppet!
« on: September 10, 2011, 12:14:55 PM »
Hey!

My name is Alexandra and I have finally realized that it is useless to resist the QT side. I've avoided joining in the past because I feared having my child butchered and publicly executed before my eyes. Now I see that I need to suck it up. Truthful criticism is necessary not only for the improvement of my story, but for the hardening of my weak author's heart! Agents aren't all sunshine and butterflies, like our highschool teachers that tell us all we're 'special'. They aren't afraid to deal a bit of tough love, and I shouldn't be afraid to receive it.

Cheers to you all! I'll be posting my first 5 pages soon - rip it apart, guys! Heart of stone!

Hello Alexandra! :welcome:  Welcome to the QT side!

You'll be able to give karma after 5 posts or 5 karma points, I don't remember which.  :emb:  But you're up to four, now, so you should be Applauding soon.  ;D
Happy writing,

Hello, FAF, from a December newbie. Good to meet you.  :)
Critiques should spur growth and improvement. Neither is painless.

I don't do personal attacks, defense/debate of work or grudges.

Remember, my comment's worth exactly what you paid for it. Use it, ignore it or PM-me and I'll remove it. 

Buona fortuna!
