Yes, I want to set you guys up. I want to help you find your ideal match. We're totally going online dating but with crit partners.
So here's how it's gonna go down:
This week I will gather information on all who want to participate in this highly experimental search for the perfect crit partner. I will compile this information into a lovely blog post filled with potential partners to share your writing life with. Next week, I'll post this information, and you will use the comments section and whatnot to connect with other writers who are looking for that special something. And if this goes well, it might become a tab on the blog. We shall see.
If you are interested, send me an email with the following information:
Audience: Adult/YA/MG/PB (This will be for organizational purposes)
Name: Natalie (or whatever handle you want)
Genre: Weird YA Stuff
Current Project: That Witch Thing, about a girl whose grandma is the town witch nobody believes is real. Oh, and the girl happens to be the next in line to take on the role. And there's a dark something after her. I don't know much more than that.
Crit Needed: A partial read/query crit/full read/lifelong love/chocolate cake/cheerleading/all of the above.
Looking For: A partner who can take me to the next level. I'm not looking to be babied. I want a tough crit that will challenge this manuscript and make it better. I don't mind readers who are brutally honest. Actually, I'd love to have someone who is super nit-picky. If possible, I'd like to have someone who is willing to do everything from line editing to plot development. (Or the exact opposite, if you are looking for someone more PC.)
Contact: Email/Website/Twitter/Whatever you are comfortable giving out
That's not too hard, right? Just think, your perfect crit partner could be right around the corner, waiting to find you! All you have to do is get out there and look.
