Lynn, I would love to proof for you. I was in the legal field for 15 years and we were in a position where everything that left our office had to be perfect. PM me or answer here if you'd like for me to proof for you. blessings... laura

I've just been doing a catch-up on the forum info and the challenge buddy/ies idea. I think I have missed some information posts as I didn't know that 'The Challenge' is changing to a fortnightly competition. When does it change? It hasn't changed yet, has it?

And, about buddies - I'd like some critiques of my work, mainly poetry, but also some prose, but...

the idea of getting help prior to submitting seems too hard time-wise, and my feeling is that it would be better to submit and then have some willing buddies offer to critique my entry and offer suggested improvements, post submitting.

Would that sort of buddy system work? And if so, is anyone interested in doing it this way (write, submit, then share with buddies and offer improvements).

What do people think?
Blessings, Ellen

Hi, Ellen

The new information about the Challenge is now old news. :D "Fortnight" entries did not hang around very long. Submissions are as before - weekly. The Buddy System is strictly voluntary. Shuold you join a group, you are not obligated to critique every week; at least not in my group.

Hope this helps. I'm sure a Moderator will fill in the rest of the details.

I prefer pre-submission critiques. Time is still a factor, whether it's done before or after. I like the idea of submitting an article with fewer "kinks" in it. :D

I write things in such a way as to avoid semi colons at all costs. I hate them lol.

I would love to have a couple of Buddies. I have just entered my very first challenge on Level 1. My entry is prose but my passion is poetry and will probably enter future challenges as poems. Thanks in advance for any help I might get. Good or Bad. Chuck
