I had a little idea that poked me. We have all these fun weekly contests and some of us write stories here and post them up for constructive criticism and I thought of a new way to make use of them! Lots of members seem to want learn how to write better, how to get starter, how to edit their own work, and even how to simply give good critics to others. So, why not have authors voluntarily choose to self-critic for the masses? The way it would work would be as follows and can be done after or before the changes. I'd like to also recommend maybe doing it LIVE on Google docs or something so it can be more dynamic and people can chat and ask questions. However, forum style would work just fine as well. 1) Post your work preferably in the first draft. 2) Begin dissecting paragraphs or phrases. 3) Explain why or how you noticed the mistakes. 4) Take others suggestions and ideas and comment/apply them. So, just something I think some might be interested. I used to do live writing sessions for fun and had people joining and talking about the whole process. So, I figure this could be a dynamic and fun way for people to learn and see how they themselves differ from different authors.
