Have you ever just had “one of those weeks”?
Yeah, well, I’m there. I had all these plans, but they went NO WHERE. I need three of me, I swear.
Anyway… There were enough people interested last week to start up a Critique Blog Hop. Every day I sat down to contact everyone to start this week, but, well, you know how life gets in the way. Sorry about that.
I even had all the rules typed out, but they are stuck in a “cloud” that is spiraling forever and not opening when I click on it, so I can’t post them now all pretty like.
So, for next Sunday, if you want to join up, comment below and leave your blog address in your comment. I will paste them all together in a blog hop list that everyone can paste into their own posts if they like.
Next Sunday, be prepared to post your first 250-ish words from your current work in progress on your blog (250 and until the end of that sentence)
We will all hop around and critique. I’ll post a rules page (all about being nice and stuff) as soon as I can get into that stupid cloud.
Oh! I’ll also create a button that you can place in your widgets or somewhere easy to find so we can click on it and easily find your post if we don’t get to you on Sunday and you post something else.
Oh, also, if you can think of a catchy name for the blog hop, let me know. If no one can come up with something by Sunday afternoon, I’ll make up a button that says “Sunday Snippets Critique Blog Hop” but I’m totally open if someone can come up with something catchy-er.
Join up and let’s get critiquing!

Well i agree with an earlier post. That this just might push me to write. It might be worth a try. I’d sort of like to know how this works before I commit 100%. http://michellezieglerauthor.com/blog/
I’m not going to hold anyone to anything. If just a few people participate it will still be worth it– especially for people who have trouble finding critiques
As for a catchier name, how about the Sneak Peek Critique Hop? Or something to that effect?
I’m in! I’m trying to harden myself to criticism anyway, haha. Blog link is http://jordannaeast.com
What’s with my glasses and thumbs today? Sorry. Let me try again.
I must give this a try. Looking forward to new experiences in learning.
Things are just too hectic for me right now, but hopefully I can join in later this winter or spring. I think this is a great chance for newer writers to learn about critiquing and get some excellent feedback from established writers. 🙂
I am very interested, Jennifer. Thank you for offering to moderate / host this on top of all your other work. I’d like to participate, but I have one question…. If the cloud that ate your work descends on my house, will I be flayed alive for not contributing on a given week????
That sounds like a lovely idea. In fact what I want more than anything is to improve my critiquing skills as well as get some feedback on my work. And if I can do that while helping others with the same, why on earth not. I’m in in in with a zing! http://ileandrayoung.com
I’m in. Is it the FIRST 250 words, or any 250 words? wyrmflight.wordpress.com
Sounds like fun…count me in. http://www.mandyevebarnett.com
I like the name – go with it
I’ll try it. Might make me write. Womanbitesdog.wordpress.con
I’m in. My blog is http://jennykellerford.wordpress.com. I’m out of town but will try to post something by Sunday.
