Secret Santa

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 4, 2012, 1:42 PM
How to Suggest Features | Useful Links | "Beta Buddies"

With christmas coming up, we will be doing a secret santa event. In accordance with the results of our recent poll, we will be doing two events - one for critiques, and one for short stories/poems.

Those who choose to participate will be assigned a name, and they then have to either create a poem or story for them, submit it, and send a note or a comment to let them know. For critiques, pretty much the same, except instead of creating a story/poem, you should go to their page and leave a critique on one of their lit pieces (note: please do not sign up for this event if you do not want genuine critique and/or cannot take constructive criticism. On the same note, do not sign up if you do not feel capable of giving a fair critique).

So, if you want to join in, then comment on this blog, and please make sure to let us know whether you want to join for stories/poems, critiques, or both. Sign up by the 10th, and we will then note you with the name.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

(in terms of giving critique, the pieces from our helpful pieces folder in our favourites.


Until next time, happy writing. :typerhappy:

One question; it has to be about a specific theme?

No, though I would recommend looking at your assigned person's gallery/faves to see what kind of things they like.

So basically I create something for a total stranger so he can politely insult it with an amateur analysis...
The agony! I don't think I can do it.

No, the critique system is totally separate. If you sign up for the story/poem secret santa, there is no obligation on the part of either party to leave a critique. A critique would, generally, only be left on an already existing piece for those who sign up for the critique secret santa.
