: : : i might maybe sorta be interested if there was a template everyone followed. a group of questions, 20 or so like, "does the peice have a (or more) well rounded character(s)?" if not, which one would you like to see more background on?"
: : : etc. sort of thing. that way, lots less ways for feelings to get hurt, since it's less freelance, and people know what other's are looking for. IF that person then feels they'd like to branch out and handle more crit, then another group of questions, or an open "i'd also like some free-talk on my peice" etc or something.
: : : hhhmmm yeah...
: : : since i'm a coward, also since i'm fairly serious about someday sending something in to be considered at a serious publisher, *snort@self* but really, is it just getting opinions of people you trust, or that you *think* you trust? how do you know ideas won't be well...tweaked and ...well, okay fine..STOLEN or something?

: : : i guess this is my curious/suggestion/bull post huh? : )

: : : jal

: : I usually don't use the list of questions approach... I've seen it used, and suppose you could if you wanted. I probably wouldn't make it a main thing though?

: : Stealing and tweaking... no real way to be sure someone wouldn't do it, I suppose. But if you're writing your own work to get published and get into a password protected board, it's certainly better than posting it where everyone can see. :D

: : Well, I wouldn't allow some random person to wander in. :D

: I really like the idea and have toyed with trying to find something similar. But I must say, owning and training a horse takes up most of my free time that could have been devoted to writing. My poor writing has suffered from extreme neglect, so I don't know how active I could/would be as a participant.
