I submitted my first critique for a story in the Critter’s writing workshop this evening. Critiques are due by Wednesday so I got mine in just under the wire. I think I did a pretty good job overall. For a critique to count for credit, it has to be at least 200 words. Documentaion says the average is something over 500 words. My critique was just over 1,000 words on a story that was 3,500 words long.
In the meantime, I got several more stories in the mail today. I only have to do one critique per week to meet my quota, but again, it is to my benefit to do as many as I can because I learn from this. I haven’t yet submitted a story, however. I’m debating whether to submit one of my existing stories for review, or to submit something brand new.
Off to bed now, thought. I have to be up at 4:30 AM for a 6 AM workout with Bernard. I can’t even stay up to see the Yankees clinch the division this evening. (Although it looks like it’s going to happen!)
