Before we get to today’s critique contest, I’d like to take a minute to share the beauty of the world we live in. Sometimes ugliness in the world can be overwhelming, but the world itself is an amazing and inspirational place. It’s easy to forget this, especially when circumstances dictate that we can’t go out and see it for ourselves. If that’s your situation, here a few images from Angela’s and my world.
Try not to let current events overwhelm and consume you. Do what you need to maintain mental health—by taking a walk, baking some cookies, snuggling with your furry family members, or polishing that first page.
For me, I’m going to get critiquing .
If you’re working on a first page (in any genre except erotica) and would like some objective feedback, please leave a comment. Any comment . As long as the email address associated with your WordPress account/comment profile is up-to-date, I’ll be able to contact you if your first page is chosen. Just please know that if I’m unable to get in touch with you through that address, you’ll have to forfeit your win.
Please be sure your first page is ready to go so I can critique it before next month’s contest rolls around. If it needs some work and you won’t be able to get it to me right away, let me ask that you plan on entering the next contest, once any necessary tweaking has been taken care of.
I’d like to be able to use portions of winning submissions as illustrations in an upcoming presentation on first pages. By entering the Critiques 4 U contest, you’ll be granting permission for me to use small writing samples only (no author names or book titles).
Three commenters’ names will be randomly drawn and posted tomorrow morning. If you win, you can email me your first page and I’ll offer my feedback.
We run this contest on a monthly basis, so if you’d like to be notified when the next opportunity comes around, consider subscribing to our blog (see the left-hand sidebar).
Best of luck!
