Charity's 1 Year Giveaway



Charity Bradford at My Writing Journey is having a first anniversary give away. She is offering one free first chapter critique for every ten people who enter.


Her critiques consist of a lot of comments. She generally writes whatever pops into my head as she reads. For instance:

  • what she likes
  • if something is confusing
  • questions that she's asking
  • passive voice
  • anything that throws me out of the story
  • telling when you could show
  • grammar and mechanical issues

The goal is to give you a glimpse into the mind of your reader. 

  • Is she asking the questions you WANT her to be asking?
  • Is she hooked on your characters? Setting? Premise?
  • Would she like to read more?
This is a great offer.

  1. I will check into it, but I have to tell you, if someone gave me my chapter back as highlighted as the one shown is, I might faint.
