Cam's Group BSFW Novels in Progress Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

This group is dedicated exclusively to novels. People new to BSFW should join Brad's NEW Novels Meetup, which is held at the same time but a different location.

People joining this group must be prepared to read back through the previously posted chapters of each novel being critiqued.

Deadline for submission of stories to be critiqued is Sunday, one week prior to  the Meetup. By the following Monday, I'll have sent out an email listing the stories to be critiqued and in what order. That list will also appear under Discussions and will be edited as changes occur.

Please make sure your manuscript is properly formatted. See our Procedures, located under the Pages tab, for guidelines and an example, as well as advice for a constructive critique. Having manuscripts already formatted makes the critiquing process easier.

Most of the meeting will be spent critiquing work of group members. There is a structure in place to make sure the critiques are as helpful as possible for everyone involved, and that the writers leave with a clear idea of what to do with their stories next.

We'll also spend some time talking about writing, sharing news and information, and getting to know one another. It's always easier to take constructive criticism from someone you know, so the social element of the group is as important as the work itself!

    My niece is performing her recital. Apparently, this is an all day event. Happy Mother's day everyone. I'll send along my critiques.

    I'll catch up soon, I promise. But I'm typing this while buried under a pile of finals.

    I've decided not to post the outline, I'm now making big (good) changes to it.

    I'll email when I get back home but let's say that both Ian's and Johnathan's stories are up for critique as well as the previously posted stores

    My chapter is up, still working on the outline though. I think Jonathan just uploaded a chapter as well.

    I'll upload my revised chapter Monday afternoon, sorry I ran out of time to finish it tonight. It's under 5k words.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
