Hey All,

Not sure exactly where to put this, but this is as good place as any, I suppose. I've taken a couple classes here recently and will really miss them after this current one is over. (I'll take another one soon, I'm sure.)

In the meantime, anyone want to start an online critique group?

I'm open to discussing any genre, although my writing currently focuses on horror/weird/Lovecraftian fiction. 

I imagine we could easily run this through Google Docs. 

Hope to hear from you!

DavidP

Microsoft OneNote is a great and easy way to do this, you just share a notebook with someone and done.

I'm confused. Why not join the Writer's Workshop on this site?

I'm interested. Does this mean I would get more than the usual 2 critiques I get in Writer's Workshop?

So google tells me that genre fiction is something written with the intent of fitting into a ceratin genre (doy), and! Plot-driven. 

Does genre fiction really have to be plot driven?

I hope not, Thuggish. I've read character-driven sci-fi and horror/dark fantasy. My work tends to be character-driven and genre.
