I'd hate to call this a contest per say, because I never think I have a chance at winning any kind of contest, so the word itself scares me off a bit. But I'm in an editing mood, and I don't want to edit HYBRID just yet because some feedback is going to be coming my way at some point, and I want to wait until then--I think the story has gotten to the point where I need some opinions other than my own!
So if I can't edit my own stuff (other WIP is very much in first draft mode, and editing might kill it dead), I need someone else's stuff to edit! And my regular CPs don't seem to be needing anything read at this point, either.
So I'm asking you, my wonderful readers, if you have anything you'd like me to take a look at.
Now, I don't claim to have any sort of credential other than my own years of writing experience and what I've learned from that period when I devoured every how-to-write book I could get my hands on...that's another reason I'm not calling this a "contest"--that would suggest that there's some big prize or something :P
Okay, by now you're probably thinking--just get on with it!! So I shall.
My email is katzhang3 AT gmail DOT com. (Please, please don't spam me.) If you have something you'd like a fresh pair of eyes to look at and give feedback on, please send me about 15,000 words. Then please leave a comment below telling me what kind of critique you'd like--of course, I won't be able to address everything with only 15,000 words, but I'll do all I can. If I get more than one offer, I'll pick one at random by using a number generator, just to be fair.
Deadline for submissions is Tuesday night at midnight EST (so Wednesday, really, I guess).
Alright! My inner editor is rearing to go!!
PS: This same post is going up on my livejournal, so I might pick a story submitted by someone there, as well.
PPS: If you ARE one of my regular CPs reading this, and you DO in fact have something you'd like for me to read, what are you waiting for?? I'm DYING to read it! :D
