Brad's Novel Group

This group is dedicated exclusively to novels. Please read the Novel Group Intro and FAQ before attending.  Be prepared to read back through previous chapters of a novel-in-progress before committing to this group.

Deadline for submission of stories to be critiqued is Friday, eleven days prior to the Meetup. On that day, I'll send 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.

To submit, Email your submission to [masked]

SUBJECT: The Title of the group you're submitting to and your name. EXAMPLE: Cam's Novel Group December 8th, Spidercam

MESSAGE: Name, Title, Word Count, any additional info. EXAMPLE: Spidercam, Glory Chapter 2, 7,000 words. This is a rewrite.

Send to [masked]

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!

    Not used to the new schedule. Is it too late to submit something?

      I sent mine this morning (before I heard back). Good to know I'm not the only one being last-minute.

    I can't make it, but if anyone has chapters to submit I will happily provide a response by Wednesday morning.

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.
