What is Chimera Critiques you ask? It is an amazing site where three incredibly talented, and experienced writers will critique a chapter of yours--for free.
Who are these lovely critiquers? Callie Forester, Zellie Blake, and Erica Spickard. Did I mention they are awesome?
Here's how it works. This is a directly from their blog--"Every month, we accept two submissions from our slush pile for these free critiques. While we each have preferences, you are welcome to submit work from any genre."
So I submitted and they critiqued my first chapter. I received their critiques in about two weeks. Each one provided me with such helpful feedback. Yes, I was nervous as I always am when submitting for a critique but these gals made me feel quite comfortable and tension free. They are all very sweet.
Not only is this site for critiques but there are many helpful writing tips,interviews, forums with an array of topics, and fun stuff like writing exercises and contests. They are having a contest right now!!!
The contest is giving a name to this little guy! Make sure you call him a guy. The Chimera is not feminine. Sorry Chimera, I was wrong.
I would highly recommend Chimera Critiques. Go check them out. I will be submitting another chapter soon.
Callie, Zellie and Erica thank you so much!
Monday, I will post the Writing the Next Line recap. So If you still want in on the action go here.
Have a great weekend!
