I'm going to post one or two excerpts a day for the next 2 or 3 days. (How's that for an exact science?) Since these are longer excerpts, I think it will be more manageable for the critters if I do it this way.
So. Leave your tactful, helpful critiques in the comment boxes, as always.
Snark will not be tolerated. I was, frankly, appalled at a few of the comments I had to delete during our last Secret Agent round.
People. If you're having a bad day, please don't stop by. We still love you, but stay home.
If you can't tell the difference between CRITIQUE and CRITICISM, then please don't comment.
And, as always, the vast majority of you don't need these reminders. It's always the lunatic fringe, yanno?
So. Have at it.
