Jumping back into the Challenge and looking for buddies

Postby RedBaron » Fri Sep 30, 2011 9:25 am

I'm in Advanced and do prose, usually fiction, not always, and I tend to enjoy Sci-Fi and fantasy :)

I'm up for buddying (is that a verb?) if you still need someone. I'm in the advanced level too, I write fiction, not good at poetry and love reading sci-fi/fantasy although I haven't delved into writing in those areas.

Whoops. I just re-read the first post and now am thinking that since we're at the same level we don't want that, is that correct? I'm just trying to get this right!

I see in the newsletter that changes are coming like having 2 weeks instead of one and encouraging buddy critique partners or groups instead of just having a buddy proofread for you. I'm too totally up for this and would be willing to be a buddy or in a group or whatever!

My understanding is that a variety of levels is fine and can be helpful for providing different perspectives, but not necessarily required.

So looks like we have three (not counting Amy for now, since she didn't say she was joining us lol).

Works for me :) She said crossing levels is good, but not required. Is there a Beginner or Intermediate that wants to jump in with us?

In addition to looking things over, I need accountability. I'll sometimes get an idea and then just forget to get back to it. I haven't entered in ages, so I really do need to get back to it.

I think someone else suggested a FB page group, are you up to that? If so, I can set up a private/secret group later. If not, we can just do group e-mails.

I'm in beginner level, and do not have a buddy yet. If you don't mind adding me, I'm in.

I don't do FB, but if everyone else wants to, I could figure out how to get back into my account probably :) And Rachael, sounds great to jump with us if you'd like, as far as I'm concerned!

I could just as easily set up a Yahoo e-mail group, if you'd rather. might even work better than FB for files and such.

I think a yahoo group sounds great, Shari. You don't mind setting all that up?

Not in the least. I have some others that I set up and it takes like no time at all. If everyone wants to PM the address you want to use, I can set it up by tomorrow and send invites :)

I have it all set up as a private invite only group. So just PM me with the e-mail address you want to use and I'll get the invites sent out.

If you don't know how to use the Yahoo group, it's easy. You can either get e-mails sent to you, either one at a time or as a digest, or go to the website and look at posts. We can upload files (I think that'll be perfect for our work) and send group e-mails or to just one person.

Did you ladies get your e-mail invites? Look in your spam folders, too, just in case.
