Lit Critique Sunday in CRLiterature!

Mon Feb 20, 2012, 7:50 PM
Come chat with us!
Hello all! This is an announcement to let you know that we'll be having some literature critique in #CRLiterature this Sunday! The first round will be hosted by zebrazebrazebra on Sunday at 8 am GMT, and the second will be hosted by BeccaJS and myself 12 hours later, at 8 pm GMT! (What time are those for me?)

This way, those of you who are in odd time zones or have previous engagements for the weekend may have a better chance to take part and get/give some feedback! Many thanks of course to zebrazebrazebra, who offered to host a crit event for the folks in the time zones that we can't accommodate as easily. :]

A few things to note, in particular:
:bulletblue: Critique will happen one work at a time, be prepared to wait your turn.

:bulletblue: Critics are not stating opinions about you, the writer. They will give feedback on the work you present to the chatroom, thoughts on how to improve the work, thoughts on what is successful and what is not, and things of that sort. Critique is not meant to function as a form of attack, please do not take it as such.

:bulletblue: Do not, by any means, attack the people critiquing your work. These people are taking time out of their day to give you feedback and opinions on your work. If you disagree with something a critic says, discussion is fine, but keep it to actual discussion and not to insults. If you can't do that or don't feel comfortable discussing, then simply say "thank you" to the critic and move on.

:bulletblue: By the same token, if you're giving feedback, keep things respectful. Each person has their own style of giving feedback, and some may be more blunt than others, but the focus of the critique should always be the piece itself, not the writer.

:bulletblue: Everyone is welcome to take part, both in giving critique and receiving it.

:bulletblue: Bring your sense of humor, we tend to go on awesome tangents. =P

Hope to see you all there!

I can't wait! I don't really have works to be critiqued, but I'll try to be there and critique works of other people!

Thank goodness it isn't a Saturday again. Yes! I can do 8pm. 8am on a Sunday is silly though. That won't happen, probably. Maybe.

Haha, yeah, we discovered that people have this thing called a life on Saturdays. I hear it's quite complicated to deal with. :D Hopefully see you at one of them, anyway!

That sounds great! I've just signed up to be a Peer Editor for #Love-Literature and could use a good excuse to stretch my critiquing muscles, as well as getting a little feedback on my own work. I have to check, however; I'm in Britain so is that 8pm GMT my time on the 26th? I'm good with words; not so much with numbers (if I can get away with putting it down to bad math skills). :D

How do you put your work forward for critique? :)

Pretty much what *georgie-ludovic said, though the oiling your feathers bit is optional. :D We look at one piece at a time, so when one person is done, another person can link to their work. :]

Turn up to the chat, shout "me! me! [link]", sit back and rub some oil onto your feathers.
