I write any kind of YA so I really don’t mind if the person I’m critiquing is writing a different genre. But right now, I’m focusing on a YA Fantasy.
Personally, I’d like it if the critique partner and I liked the same books and wouldn’t mind talking to me on chat (e.g gchat)
I’m a fairly fast reader and I generally can finish what you send me in less than a day and can write the critique in the same day or in the next. If it takes longer than it means that I either really can’t get into the story or I really like it and can’t describe my thoughts very well.
I wouldn’t particularly use structured deadlines and as I stated above, I’m more of a person who would talk to you on chat. And that is basically it, we can swap first chapters if you’d like.
