I'm going to be useless at the 'criticism' bit :( I think we need an outside critic lol. It is different when you sit in college and critique a famous author's work , you know it makes no odds to them what YOU think, they are already famous, lauded , quite probably deceased .

I think I can 'take it' (or maybe not :( ) , I am not sure I can 'dish it out' lol... where do we start with that?!



AnnCardiff Report 11 Jan 2010 21:06

well I've done two now!!! sent them to Stella and Rose - one might make you laugh - the other might make you cry!!!!

also sent to Deanna and Jen - that's all the email addresses I have


AnninGlos Report 11 Jan 2010 21:10

Are you not sending to everyone Anne.

I have received but not checked yet if I can open, Roses, Stella's and Mags But I haven't looked as I want to send mine, if I read and they are too good I may not want to send mine Lol!!!!

I am just going to check if I can open, I have sent to everyone but had Deanna's returned. Please let me know if you can't open, I forgot when I sent the attachment that not everyone has Vista.


AnnCardiff Report 11 Jan 2010 21:36

Jen ~ Report 11 Jan 2010 21:50

Ann & Deanna, have read yours and they are brilliant, I did enjoy them. Are we supposed to comment here or reply to each individual work? I'm a little vague on that, and don't fancy reading through the whole thread again, it's all I can do to keep up with you all on here lol!
I haven't even decided what piece I shall submit yet.
One submission I could not read because windows won't open the file, so have sent reply to submitter, who will know who they are. Hope I can get to read the work.


AnninGlos Report 11 Jan 2010 21:53

Jane, as long as we both use our full 'titles' you should be OK.

Have we decided how we are going to do critiques? I think it is going to be difficult. So far I have seen nothing to criticise, all praise so far!!!!

I do wish that I had been brave enough to go over the word limit though, I could have written a lot more but thought we were constrained by the 500 or thereabouts words.
