Tonight, to my utter surprise, I opened my e-mail and found I actually had a new one. (Yes, you have no idea how rarely that happens if I don't e-mail the person first.) It was from Eric Laing, a writer looking for a critique . . . by me. I was 1.) flattered and 2.) completely unprepared, this being my first offer for a crit in the history of my blog, and I took him on. Currently, I'm working my way through his manuscript, THE LITTLEST DREAM. Within the first page there were a few obvious formatting errors (single spaced, italics not underline), but so far it's looking good. I'll update when I'm ready with my critique. And my writing's going great. I'm on Chapter Twelve, with only three more to go! Woohoo!
- RW! (AND ME, GRINGY! God, you always forget about me!
Together, the Rentable Writer and his sidekick Gringy are on a mission to help aspiring writers everywhere. Will they succeed?
To send something to RW or Gringy: firstname.lastname@example.org — Accepting fiction. Novels, short stories, queries & synopses (for spelling-grammar-punctuation editing, but not professional critique), and any possible question you could have.
My sidekick Gringy and I are here to inspire those writers who wish to break out of their shells ... or who already have, but now need help learning how to fly. (I hate analogies [or is that a deformed metaphor?] like that. Gringy doesn't.)
Random Fact about Me, RW: One of my secret desires is to live in a slush pile -- all that undiscovered crappy goodness.
