The Versatile Blogger Award and a Search For a Critique Partner

I'm happy to announce that I recently received the "Versatile Blogger Award" from Karoline at "As a Teen Writer." Thank you, Karoline! :D














Unlike some other awards, all I have to do for this one is accept it and pass it on to a few of my favorite bloggers. I will pass it on to . . .

My parents at "Sushi and Pizza."
My brother at "I Don't Eat My Drumsticks."
nevillegirl at "Musings From Neville's Navel."
Miriam Joy at "Miriam Joy Writes."
Bethany at "Rainbows and Penguins."
seventytwofishes at "Seventy-Two Fishes."

It seems as if a bunch of my favorite bloggers have quit blogging. :/ What a shame. (Carla and Cici, if you're reading this, please keep blogging)!

As you can see from the title, I'm looking for a critique partner. For those of you who don't know what a critique partner is, I will explain.

A critique partner is a writer you can depend on to help you with your writing (whether it be books, short stories, poetry, etc.). You can count on them to be honest, kind, fair, and invested in your work. If you happen to find a great critique partner, you will become theirs and, therefore, will have to do your best to be honest, kind, fair, and invested in their work. You and your critique partner critique each other's work and help each other to perfect your writing abilities.

So . . . any takers? Please leave a comment if you're interested! :D

Congrats on your award!

I'd be open to being a critique partner, if you get no other takers or you want more than one critique partner. I'm learning the wonderful value of critique partners from a group that I meet with once a month, and I've got a couple of beta readers lined up for when I (finally) finish a completed rewrite of the novel. I'd welcome more feedback, and be willing to provide feedback in exchange! :)
