Going Offline for a Week

Just want to give everyone a heads up that I'll be offline for the next week. There were a few real life diagnostics and some How They Do Its scheduled, and I'll get all those done/posted next week instead. (Posts resume April 29)

To make up for it...

RANDOM CRITIQUE CONTEST!
Leave a comment on this post, and I'll randomly choose not one but two folks to win a 1000-word critique from me. No time limit to turn it in. Deadline is 7am EST on April 29th.

Have a great week and I'll see you later.

  6. Oh Janice, pick me, pick me!!!

    I will miss reading your post for the next week, but I'll just view this as an opportunity to play catch up with your past entries as well as a time to continue working on my WIP (for you to critique I hope).

    I look forward to your return.

    I really want that 1000 word critique because everyone around where I live thinks, "OH MY GOSH SHE WRITES SO WELL!" It stinks. I get no brutally honest opinions that I ask for.

    Anyway, yeah. Hope your week is amazing. I love weeks off, so MAKE THE MOST OF IT!!! :)
