Want a critique?

I'm not sure why, but I kind of feel in the mood to do some critiques!! While I could go onto SYW on the AW forums and get busy, I thought I'd offer up my services to my followers first (okay why did that sound really sleazy?). If you'd like to get a critique of your first chapter or first 1500 words, go ahead and send it to my email address:

adktd2bks (at) yahoo.com. 

I'm envisioning that I might do this for a few weeks as it will motivate me to get my butt moving on my own new WIP. So at present, I will do a crit for everyone who sends me something, but if I start to get lots of them, i.e. too many for me to handle, then I might go to random drawings.

Please indicate what kind of crit you'd like:
1. general comments.
2. line by line suggestions.
3. tightening/editing - I'd only do this if I think you're at the stage where you could query soon.

Also, let me know what genre you're writing in. Paranormal, contemporary, dystopian, etc. I will assume it's YA unless noted otherwise. 

I prefer to read first chapters, but if you do send me something from the middle of your manuscript, please let me know that. And of course, don't participate unless you want honest feedback!!

Just want to say that if you do not take Angie up on this offer...YOU ARE INSANE! She is a phenomenal beta reader and, yes, I DO speak from experience. Do not miss this opportunity!

Haha! Thanks, Mel. *mwa*

If anyone reads as far as this and still doesn't send in your first chapter, you are mad! I did, and have such clarity on a chapter that was making me want to cry - thanks Angie :)
