It Takes a Village...


...to crit a manuscript.

Okay, maybe not a whole village. But Roni over at Fiction Groupie has posted the first of what will hopefully be a series of excerpts for what she's calling "The Beta Club".

It's here! Today is the debut of the new critique feature here on Fiction Groupie. Every Tuesday and Thursday for the next few weeks, I will be posting a critique of a 750 word excerpt submitted to me by one of you generous (and brave) writers out there. To those of you who have already volunteered, thank you so much in advance. I hope everyone will find this to be a fun and helpful exercise to go through together.

Doesn't that sound like fun?

Of course it does! And the best part is, working out your critique muscles only makes you a better writer. And we could all use a little help in that department, am I right? ;) Support your colleagues and give them the feedback they've been craving.

So get on over to Roni's and check out Submission 1- The Dying Sun

Hope to see you there!

Cool! I didn't realize that was starting today. Did you submit something? Mine's going up later this month. :)

I did submit something, I think the 11th is the tentative date. Trés excited!

Tina, I hope you're getting some good feedback!

Tamika, glad you were interested. It's a great opportunity.

And I enjoyed Tina's story, also. Pretty mind-blowing concept.
