- All contest entries should critique a minimum of 5 other entries. It's about GIVE AND TAKE, not just TAKE.
- PLEASE choose the third option for signing your posts, which is "NAME/URL." (The URL is not necessary.) Please do not be anonymous!
- Critters, please be honest but kind.
- You may start critting as soon as the posts go up, and continue critting all week and through the weekend.
- Entrants: Please don't posts explanations, justifications, questions, or arguments in response to the critique you receive. Read it ALL, sort it out later. Keep what resonates with you, toss out the rest. But please. No justifying. (I know it's hard! Walk away if you need to.)
(PS: You'll notice my DONATE button is down. Although there is absolutely no connection between the Secret Agents and my button, I don't want any inkling of misconception floating around. As in, agents accepting money for reading excerpts. Because, they don't. No decent agent ever does.
Anyway. The button will be back up when the contest closes on Monday. As always, thank you for your generous support of this blog. And, well, of me.)
