I am in a blogging drought. I don't really know what to do about it.
But I am heading off to an undisclosed location in two weeks where I plan to grill chicken, eat loads of guacamole, and finish my current work-in-progress so I can have some breathing time in October before NaNoWriMo starts.
And I figure, what better way to celebrate my impromptu writing retreat (and some new bloggy follower friends -- hey friends!) than offer a 50 page critique for some lucky writer pal out there. If I can't be blogging regularly, I can at least be writing/critiquing regularly, amiright?
So here's all you have to do to enter. (1) Be a follower of this blog. (2) Leave a comment on this post, with your email address or other, reliable way I can contact you.
Are there the possibility of bonus entries? Heck yes there are. You can have a SECOND entry if you blog about this contest and let me know in the comments. In honor of the Holy War, you will also be given a THIRD entry if you comment with a really excellent BYU joke. (Not really.)
(To be clear, that's just two entries possible. But brownie points for the joke.)
The winner will be selected on Friday (Sept. 14th) at noon and you'll have your critique back by the end of September, if not earlier.
It doesn't need to be finished. It doesn't need to be polished. If you want the critique at some future date, that is also OK, we'll just figure out a different time frame.
So enter away, friendos.
* PS: In case you're thinking, "Ru's an ok blogger and all, but why would I want a critique from her?" I'll just let you know that I am actually a bang-up critiquer (not to blow my own horn, it's just true) with editorial experience (of a sort ...) and everything, and this is an excellent month to catch me before the fall craziness of ________________________ (edited to ensure my future employment) starts up.
Is that enough caveats, do you think?
