The Prizes


:bulletblack: One random winner will receive a comment/critique from me.
:bulletblack: A second random winner will receive 50:points:




*Commenting/critiquing on more than one of the deviations will increase your odds of winning.  There is a strict limit of three entries per deviant.
**A Comment is a few lines, possibly a paragraph, about your opinion of the story.  It usually includes something that you really liked and should include at least one thing that can be improved.  A Critique is many paragraphs about the deviation and will include both personal opinion as well as correction to technical errors.
***To get a link to your comment, once you've submitted it, click on the time stamp.


The first of hopefully many Critique Challenges!

Are they mature content? (inappropriate)

Too busy right now to critique something of that length, but I'd definitely like to participate another time!

Oh, so it's like tit for tat. That's a really good idea. :meow:

Maybe if I end up making some art I'd like some constructive criticism on I'll try this out. :XD:

I never knew that about the time stamp! I need to do more random clicking.

You probably know that most of the time I can't get into fantasy or sci-fi, so I'm pushing myself specifically for this contest to try to broaden my horizons. (Plus, the piece I decided to critique was quite interesting!)

My Critique

Feedback on this one, please!

I learned about it for the Poop Throwing extravaganza earlier this year. Otherwise, I wouldn't know either.

:highfive:

Thanks for doing a crit. You've been officially added into the prize pool.

Only on the Internet is a "Poop Throwing Extravaganza" socially acceptable :giggle:

The Internet is also the best place for me to procrastinate on my writing. Shame on me :no:

Me too. I turned off my WiFi earlier. Now I just have my Squashy chat open and occasionally check my messages here. But that's it.

It'll be difficult to get the writing done at this point. There's a lot going on... I'll still try, though. Hopefully I can get something done.

Here's a link to my critique of *TarienCole's Thunder's Echo: Teaser.

And here's the piece I'd like to receive a critique on, Submerged in Swan Lake. I don't normally write poetry, so any advice is greatly appreciated so that I may hone my craft. :la:

Alright, I critiqued the piece by *TarienCole and you can find my comment here.

The piece I would like to see be critiqued/commented/reviewed is this one, but really, anything in my Writing WIP folder would do as well. :)

I'm not sure if I'll be able to participate, at least not during this month. November is kind of jam-packed, but I might try to get it done.

I know November is a bad month, but I wanted to give the non-Nanoers something to do too.

That's true. It's so weird to me that people don't do NaNo. :giggle: I don't know why. I think everyone should at least try!

I was up at midnight to ring in November, and with the writing I did earlier and since I've been awake, I've written 2,000 words. I think I'm in good shape; I can probably do this, too. It'll keep me busy.
