A couple weeks ago, I posted the openings of six different novels on my personal blog and had visitors vote for the ones that captured their interest. It was a useful exercise and proved to be lots of fun.
I began to think we at Spec Faith might like to do something like that too, but instead of me giving novel openings to you, you could give me excerpts to post.
This would be something like the one-page critiques sometimes offered at conferences. Anonymous participants who aren’t afraid of the comments they’ll receive submit their work, and a panel of professionals says if they would like to read more and why or why not.
In this case, the “panel of experts” would be the Spec Faith visitors.
First we need anonymous participants who are brave enough to put their work forward for the public to
shred discuss. 😉 If you would like to volunteer, you may email the first hundred words of your unpublished novel to rluellam at yahoo dot com. Sometime soon I’ll post the first five I receive, and then the fun can begin.
