Working on your own novel? Then join me at next month’s Novel Writing Bootcamp. It’s a free month-long online workshop for writers who have a partial manuscript.

Hope to see you there!

Novel Boot Camp is only a week away! Before we all get absorbed in the excitement and chaos, let’s make some writing friends and snag some critique partners!

**Note: This meetup does not end at any specific time. Feel free to post here throughout Novel Boot Camp!**

Writing Friend: Someone to chat with about writing and publishing. Someone to give you a nudge (or a shove) when you fall behind on your goals. Someone to laugh and cry with you about your writing ups and downs.

Critique Partner: Someone to exchange full or partial manuscripts with in order to offer critiques of each other’s work. Must be polite, courteous, constructive, but also honest.

There are two ways to connect:

Sample Tweet: Looking for a critique partner. A YA writer would be great!…

    Hey John, Twitter isn’t the only place to find great critique partners. I’m a writer (my book, Sunkist Sodas and Sexy Underwear will be published by Reputation Books this fall), and I’m on Critique Circle dot com. If you haven’t tried Critique Circle yet, I highly recommend it. There are lots of talented YA writers there, and you can pick and choose partners that suit you. A basic account is free. It costs a nominal fee if you want perks (like private critique groups, outline workshops, character name generators, etc.), but I think the money is well worth it. Two of my critique partners on CC are agented and two are published. Leave a comment on my English Emporium blog (or any of my blogs) if you have questions.
