    I apologize for being unable to attend, I came down with the flu and was not well enough to attend this session.

    Hey all! As promised, I put my notes on the pieces into the "written critiques" folder (Under Sept 6 folder). I really enjoyed all the pieces. :)

    Feedback is at least verbal at the meetup. You may or may not make written comments as it suits you. Paper critiques in whatever format can be handed out at the meetup, or electronic copies can be deposited in the "Written Critiques" folder for each meetup date. It's all pretty much up to you.

    What form should feedback take? Ie: verbally at the meet-up? Printed comments? Comments on a copy of the document itself?

    Ingrid, I have to add you to the shared Dropbox folder. For that I need your email address. Please send it to me in a private message.

    We usually go with Rich Text Format (.rtf) or Word 2003 (.doc) format.

    Sorry, one more question - what format should I put it in?

    Never mind… For some reason I'd paused my computer dropbox syncing. Fixed it and the folder is there. Will put something in today.

    Apparently technology and I aren't getting along these days. On my phone, dropbox shows the Sept folder, but on my computer it's missing. What does this mean? Anyone know some tips? :/

    Thanks for moving my submission to the dropbox folder. But could you explain how I get to that folder. I have dropbox on my computer. but how do I send any future submissions to the group's dropbox?

  • Ingrid Z.

    Thanks for moving mine to the right place. I couldn't find the folder you had mentioned. Sorry!

    Alyssa, In the WinnSpec dropbox folder, open the 2014 folder and it should be in there. Ingrid, I am going to move your submission to the dropbox folder so others can review it.

    I'm looking forward to bringing a chapter from my latest book to share with my colleagues. It will be great fun to hear what topics other people are writing about. Mine has been a lot of humour and editing of other's work to date, but now I have some contracts that are more serious. It would be nice to hear how other writers handle the serious topics. Plus, I think it will be great to talk to other writers. :)

    In the Sep[masked] folder, you can save a copy of the work you wanted critiqued about a week in advance. If you want to critique someone else's work in writing, you can save the critique in the Written Critiques subfolder of the Sep[masked] folder. Otherwise, just be prepared to discuss the items that are placed in the folder.

    Works for me. Can you remind me how the critiquing works? I'm already connected to the drop-box…what do I do next?

    Does anyone have an objection to my moving this back to 2:30pm? I just found out I have a dentist appointment at 1pm.
