My One-Year Anniversary!

Heyo, peers! It’s my one-year anniversary! Huzzah! Can you believe I’ve made it this far? An entire year in the blogosphere? I honestly can’t grasp that concept yet.

Remember my first post, when I wrote a poem asking forgiveness for not posting within the first few days of January? (For the full backstory, you can read the post here) Well, I decided to keep that tradition going and write another horrid-thing-that-can-just-barely-be-called-a-poem for the one-year anniversary.

Yup, I know there’s an 8th syllable in that second line. Couldn’t think of a better way to do it.
To make up for your having to read that awful thing (without doing another Forgive Me poem), I’m offering a ten-page concept critique contest to my subscribers! Here’s the rules: Say “Concept Critique Contest” five times fast. No, I’m kidding, but if you could, it would be cool because I’m pretty sure I can’t.

Okay, heres the actual rules: subscribe to my blog, either by following me on Google Plus or joining this site on Google Friend Connect. Then (or if you already have) comment below that you subscribed, and next Monday, Ill pick a random winner and critique the first ten pages of their manuscript.

A concept critique means I won’t do nitpicky things like grammar and sentence structure. I’ll just read over your first ten pages and tell you what I think of the plot so far, the story idea, the characters, and other big-picture things.

If you’re not a writer, I will write you an Alexa S. Winters original (and awful) poem that you can print out, put on a plaque, and show off to all your friends.

Granted, I am in no way a professional editor (or a professional poet), but I want to give back to the wonderful readers, who’ve stuck with me and supported me this past year! Even if you don’t win, thank you so, so much, you beautiful, wonderful, awesome person for subscribing to and reading through Summer Snowflakes.
