Introduce Yourself!August 10, 2011 at 5:11 pm #3877
I am Cathy a.k.a. scriber57. I have been writing for more years than I can count (not really, but it makes it sound good). I am interested in several genres – action/adventure, romance/chick lit, short stories, memoirs. I have been in a critique group before and have a little experience in critiques. I’m currently writing an adventure story and would like to find a CP to tell me what’s good and what’s bad about it. I’m looking forward to hearing from the ladies on this site.August 15, 2011 at 7:24 am #3878
Hi Cathy, I’m Gwen.
I”ve always liked “My side of the Mountain”, Pippi Longstocking, The Little People, A wrinkle in Time (the old childrens stories), and romance-historical mostly. I always have loved romance with a bit of meat to it–suspense, thriller and historical. I’m venturing into YA. I never really liked Chick-lit; but I love memoirs and have gone to Grand Central Station for the time capsule opening to read what the New Year’s Eve celebrators wrote in 1900 for the year 2000. I love biographies. I have memoir I am not yet ready to write. Hope to meet you soon. I’m unsure of how to use Twitter and Facebook as they take up a lot of time-and my internet connection is sometimes slow. I’m working on a new project. I need deadlines with only so many pages per period. In otherwords, keep accountable, participate, and send only enough tha each crit partner can write and crit!August 26, 2011 at 9:25 pm #3880
My first novel “Protecting the Source” was action adventure/sci fi. then came quirky “Holly Would, But Stacy Won’t” Now I’m working on a Romantic/action adventure set in Half Moon Bay, CA called “Better Run” almost a year in. I love deadlines and giving/receiving feedback. I consider my self somewhat educated in self publishing.August 27, 2011 at 1:13 am #3881
I have been writing and illustrating picture books for about three years and have started soliciting agents. I belong to a critique group which meets bi monthly but am looking for other writers of picture books. Most of the great members of my group write YA. I can critique once a week and look forward to hearing from other picture book writers.December 16, 2011 at 7:09 pm #3883
I love action adventure novels, and I try to incorporate a bit of it in all my stories. My current WIP is more sci-fi than anything else, but there will be a fair amount of action included!
I’m looking forward to meeting new writers and seeing their writing styles. Check out my profile for more info about me! 🙂
