The critique section to upload your posts is in the Writers Resources page next to Workshops.

I don't know if I'm over looking the section to upload or not, but I didn't see it in the Writers Resource section.
Plus has anyone talked about how to develop a background for a character yet? You know to give them depth and such?
Thank you!

Thank you LaVerne for hosting our first workshop. And Bray even managed to ask great questions.

Now I want to encourage you all to upload work for critique section. Do 2 critiques for your fellow RPers and place 1 of your own in. That way you too will get back at least 2 critiques. If you take work to critique just make note that you have that way no 1 person is getting all the work critiqued.

Make sense? Don't worry we'll work through the system. I know it's new for everyone. Ask questions.

*laughs* Kiki, I think Bray's character genders are interchangeable.

And on that note. I"m going to say goodbye. It's been fun. Thank you for having me. The best way to critique is to read. Read work that you enjoyed and try to figure out why what was it about a sentence that moved you. So when you critique you bring some of that to the table.

And if you get a critique after the first time your stomach clenches then take a deep breath and pay attention to what is said. Remember take what you can use disregard the rest. I always do. And you don't have to explain anything to any one. Well except your editor. hahahahahaha

*Laughing* I have to use my pocket dic and theo. When I write my brain shuts down completely and the only words I can think of are WAS, HAD, THAT, AS.. AND HE, HE, HIS, HIS, HE even when I'm writing about a female..


Note to self... always check genders of charries prior to reading Bray or Larken.. Hahahaha
