40 Followers and GIVEAWAY!

Hey, everyone! I hope you're having a great week. Only one and a half more weeks of school and it will be halfway over, which means Christmas time!

I have very exciting news to share. Yesterday, Forever Changed reached 40 Follower. A year ago, forty followers seemed like a dream I never would reach. I seriously cannot believe it. I would never have made it without the constant support of all of you. Thank you for making my Christmas!

Because of this, to thank all of you, I decided to host a giveway. Since I want  to thank you guys, I will select two winners at random to receive a 15 page critique giveaway. This can be an part of your novel, short story, anything fictional that you've worked on. I've read some of your writings and I know you are all talented people! I would love to read something of yours!

I'm not a professional.  However, I have learned about it since I've been writing a novel with my friend. We take turns writing and editing chapters. Also, I do read a ton of writing advice and tips on various websites. That has helped extremely and both writing and editing areas. And I read. A lot.

I want to do whatever I can to help you. So if you just want feedback on certain things, I will only give you that and leave out other things I might notice. For example, if you just want to know if the scene moves too slow or too fast and nothing else, tell me and that's all I'll say. If you want more, I'll do that too. I want to help you improve your story in the way you want it to be improved

Take what you want to take. Do not feel inclined to do anything I might suggest. I know I would want someone to tell me this if I were to give them my work to be critiqued. If you want to take some of my advice and leave some out, that is completely fine with me.

I don't mind spelling and grammar errors. I have plenty of those in my own stories and blog posts. But be sure it makes sense. I don't want to misunderstand what you're trying to do and speak out of turn.

And lastly, if not most importantly, don't be afraid. While I want to help you, I hate to hurt feelings. It comes naturally for me to be on my guard about that. I promise to be honest, but say it in the nicest way possible. Please don't take anything negative I say personally. I don't mean it that way at all.

This giveaway ends on Saturday, December 21st! (Central time) Spread the word and thank you sooo much.

Take this survey to receive four entries. It's quick and easy. I would to like to know how I can make my blog better.

  1. This is such a great idea! I've already sent my Jane Eyre retelling to a couple of people, and I'd love more feedback. And all of the links you posted work fine, by the way. :)
