Guidelines for Crit Group

Team Members, Charity, Marcy, and I will act as Moderators, each of us taking one week a month. At that time, we will display our personal preference/skills in critiquing, book reviews, or general information to our followers.

As Moderator, I will conduct a submission critique, open to any who follow this blog.

My rules:

1)     Must be a follower of the blog to submit and critique other’s work.

2)     Civility is paramount. Be polite. Be overly polite even.

3)     On Monday, I will announce the critique session's theme.
         Tuesday, I will open the forum and post submissions on the blog for critiquing. 

4)     Submissions should include Title, Genre, and Name. Note; the names WILL BE      DELETED before I post.

5)     Critique the submissions in the comment section.

6)     If you wish to revise and post edited submission, do so in the comments section. But remember, you will lose your anonymity at that point.

7)     Be prepared to back up your crits, btw. Research is the key.

Email submissions to cdcoff(at)gmail(dot)com.

After deleting your name, I will post the submission for critiquing by our members.

If you submit for critiquing, please be prepared to crit others. This is only fair.

If a Team Member schedules critique sessions for that week, the announcement will be on Monday.

Similarities between our format and the incomparable Authoress of Miss Snark’s First Victim fame, is because I totally swiped them just a coincidence.

This week’s excerpt:

FIRST KISS

Give your name (this will be deleted). Title, and Genre.
Write a short lead-in to the scene.
Submit a 200-word scene.
It can be a finished MS or WIP, agented or unagented.
No graphic smooching, please.

Submissions start Tuesday, May 24 at 5 am, CST and end 5 pm, CST.  
Email submissions to cdcoff(at)gmail(dot)com.

-prepares to look stupid-

A lead-in is like a summary of the scene before, right?

-winces at stupefied stares-

Brooke, yes, just a snippet as to who the two characters are and what has brought them to this moment.
