Hello, fellow writers!
Those of you familiar with my blog know that I try to post pieces of other writer’s work to be critiqued by myself and others on Saturday (that would be today, if you are one of those people have lost track because of summer.) Through my program “Open Pen” (you can find it by click on the tab at the top of this page), I invite writers to submit an excerpt of their writing (prose or poetry), and I and other commenters will critique it.
However, I do not have any submissions to post today, and I did not have any last Saturday either.
So I would love to hear from my followers and anyone who stops by what they think of “Open Pen.” While I doubt that any of you hate it, I would like to figure out if it is worthwhile for me to continue doing. If you would answer the poll below (and comment if you have more to say), I would really appreciate it.
Oh, and trust me; you can’t offend me with any answer that you give. I am an INTJ (personality type), so I will consider your feedback, positive or negative, and act logically on the conclusion that I gather from it. Truly, you could tell me that “Open Pen” is a terrible idea, and I would just nod and store your opinion in with the other ones which I gather. So please be honest. I would really appreciate it!
This poll will be open until the 8th of August. If I don’t have any submission by next Saturday, then I will post a piece of my own writing. If I still don’t have any submissions by the following Saturday, then I will reevaluate the critique group and possible get rid of it. If I do get rid of “Open Pen,” then I will find something else to post on Saturdays 😉
Thank you for your time, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
