In February two years ago, I started writing hodge-podge entries in this blog. My goal was to write down everything I knew about writing (which I'm still working on, and have a feeling will never finish) in a clear and concise way so a complete stranger would understand what I was saying.
So much has happened since then, and I have thoroughly enjoyed everything, as well as meeting all you fellow readers and writers in the blogosphere. My blog wouldn't still be here if not for you.
As a thank you, I'm going to continue the book giveaways that I launched a year ago. But instead of interviewing authors, I thought I'd do something different.
When I write a book review, it's similar to how I critique. I dissect a story and look at the individual pieces - character, plot, pacing, voice, etc. Then I put it back together and see how the pieces work as a whole. So, if any of you writers out there would like that kind of critique aimed at your writing, then send me your favorite 500 words. Or your least favorite. Or what's giving you the most trouble right now. It can be from anywhere in the story, not just the beginning.
I will post your piece anonymously, along with my comments, and will open up the floor to comments from others as well.
So, if this interests you, send your piece in the body of the email (NOT as an attachment) to this address: tabwriter at gmail dot com. Then I'll figure out when and how to post it. Looking forward to it!!
