Ellen, any ideas how to get the critique ball rolling if some other people ever blow in from the Intertube prairie? Do we post stuff on this wall or send around an email with a scene tucked in?

You could send as a message here, or post it to the Forum for comment. Or email, but that would take two steps.... ya know??

I'm on the tail end of a first draft of a YA novel... why does the ending always take the longest!!

Andie asked how we might critique here. I think you could post to forum, which allows comments.

To test drive this puppy, I've posted Chapter One of my YA novel in Discussion Forum and the first ethos (rule/suggestion) in the widget above that. We can all add rules, suggestions as we go along to make this a friendly, productive place.

Weird. I don't see them either. But they're available on the front page.
