*looks frantically around*
Er, I may be on serious project overload.
First, there was the whole my-back-went-out fiasco that knocked me off track for a week (don't panic, I have finally returned, as of yesterday, to the open water);
|Yesterday, at the Dix Hills Diner....|
and, the "quick" Blogger Appreciation Week post that took me almost 4 hours *coughs* (so, please, hang on its every word and visit every link!)
and, um, of course, there was the unexpected hour lost when my son, not immediately finding the correct dishwasher detergent,
Brady-Bunched the dishwasher...
|That is my hubby scooping suds out with a plastic pitcher...|
we go all loosey-goosey again with a
Friday Feedback free-for-all.
In fact, you don't even need to read any of my crap this week; I'll just read yours. ;)
Go ahead, you know you want to.
Here are the RULES:
Please post between 3 -5 paragraphs, and no more -- 3 if the paragraphs are longer, no more than 5 if they are short.
If there's more, I reserve the right not to read.** I will offer some very basic feedback -- the only reasonable feedback that can actually be given from a brief excerpt:
• Does the piece "hook" me enough to make me want to keep reading;
• What else works for me and/or what doesn't;
• If you're super lucky (or super unlucky?) I may be moved to do a superspeed flash edit -- I will never change your words... only omit unneeded ones and/or change tenses to show how even a small edit like that can truly make a piece shine. As Orwell once said, "If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out." I believe this is mostly true.
Happy Friday. Happy writing. Hop to it.
