Copying the rules:
Please use this thread to ask for critique. Do not start a new thread.
The original rules were written up by Poetigress. Please read the guidelines before posting.
This is a thread for those who want critiques of their written work to post links to particular stories/poems/whatever on FA, in hopes that others will offer constructive criticism.
In your post, please provide
* The title of the work
* A brief summary/description (so prospective critters know whether it's something they're interested in, such as a poetry submission, erotica, sci-fi, or fantasy)
* Any content advisories (adult language, sexual content, etc.)
* What type of crit you're looking for (just grammar and spelling, or anything, or any particular questions/concerns you'd like the critter to address)
* The link to the work on FA
*You must critique at least two (2) other pieces submitted to this thread for your work to be be looked at. Link to both of the critiques that you have made.
If you do not critique other pieces before submitting your request, your request will be removed.
This is not to be needlessly overbearing. This thread has gone through several iterations now, and each time a common complaint that has come up has been that there is little actual productive critique done, and lots of fruitless requesting for it. We're hoping establishing a rule of 'give to get' will spur some effective activity.
