Critique Winners!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by for the 100th post/follower celebration. I'm excited at the chance to read some of your writing.

While we're on the subject of critiques, I feel it would be a good time to bring up (again) my favorite book on writing:

I highly recommend you get a hold of a copy and read it. You can read my post about it here. Getting feedback is so important, but so is remembering that it's your story and you have to stay true to it.

Okay, spiel over. Now onto the lucky winners!

Congratulations, Ladies! Go ahead and send me your short story or novel chapter (8,000 words or less, please) in .doc or .rtf format. My email is angloft(at)gmail(dot)com. I can't wait to read your stuff. If you don't happen to have anything ready for critiquing, that's okay. I'll wait. This prize does not expire. Just let me know that you do plan on sending something.

And once again, thanks to all my readers and followers! Have a great weekend.

I'm a winner! Whoot!

Angie, Thank you so much!!! This could not come at a better time. I need a little direction. You are the best!

I'll get that chapter off to you soon. I just need to make sure it's within the length requirement. There's one chapter in my WiP that needs a lot of TLC when I get to my first round of revisions. I think this critique would be just the ticket to getting it on its way.

Congrats to the other winners!

Aubrie said...
