I really don't have anything profound to say here, just dropping by to wish you all well. Neil Gaiman, on the other hand, does, although this is technically from a few years back.

New Year's Resolutions are an important thing! And while I have more than one, I do have one that's relevant to us here at WW, and that is I resolve to critique more often. I'm going to try to make sure that every workshopper gets at least one solid critique per piece during workshops. I've felt lately that the "critique weeks" have left something to be desired for a lot of deviants, and I for one admit that I haven't been leading by example.

So! In the new year, I promise to leave a decent-length critique on at least half the workshop submissions, and all of them if we don't get a lot of submissions for a particular workshop. I also pledge to ensure that no one writes a piece for a workshop and then ends up with no critiques.

Speaking of workshops, our next workshop is going to be on free-verse poetry! It's going to be hosted by the wonderful intricately-ordinary, and if you haven't read her work, check it out! It's brilliant stuff. So, if learning strategies to write free-verse poetry is at all interesting to you, stay tuned!

Hey, uh, that video doesn't play anything.
Thanks for sharing your resolution! Now you know you can be held accountable and punishable! ;)
Frankly, I think "critique week" is flawed. If I'm going to write a comment or critique of something, I gotta do it right then, first time I look at it, or it won't happen. I think you could, perhaps, withhold releasing the submitted stories via the Workshop until the deadline has passed, then release all the submissions for the Workshoppers to view and critique. Ehhhh but perhaps this isn't the place for such comments....

Oops! Sorry about the video; I'm not sure what the problem is.

Thanks for the idea, I'll keep it in mind :)
