Putting Myself out there
« on: March 17, 2010, 03:47:29 PM »
Okay, let me put myself out for a group.

I am writing a urban fantasy novel, but also will be working on historical fiction and general fiction.

I enjoy reading urban fantasy (not a big fan of vampires unless a good twist), fantasy, historical fiction, thrillers, - okay just about everything BUT romance.

I feel that I can best support in structure, character development, plot development, conflict analysis, and general devils advocate.

I am NOT good at spelling, grammar, or punctuation.
If writing is a passion then editing is an obsession and only through obsession can writing be great.

I might be in need of a new critique group, or maybe the critique group I'm part of could use a new member or two as two of them have sort of faded away. If you are interested and I can get the group up and going again, maybe you can join. (Holidays were a rough time for us, but I'm trying to get the fire lit again) Based on your blog, I think you would fit in well.

Mercy and Isabella, I am talking to the group leader and seeing if we could possible have a group of 8 people, we previously held it at 6, but if so I'll PM you the details. That is if you are still interested.

Hi there,

Sounds like you have your quota.

I'm interested if you still have room.

Thanks, AnneJ.

If you are still interested, please message me.  I am seeking someone to swap manuscripts with.  My story is a YA fantasy.

Hey JayliaDarkness,
I write YA fantasy also and would be willing to switch manuscripts. I am a member of a critique group already and they are reading it, but it has taken a year to get to chatper 21 and it has 43 chapters so i am looking for someone to read it in one go. I would also be happy to read yours. Just PM me for my email or if you are still interested in switching.
