I'm sure that when (if) I find something, things will settle into a new routine and my blogging will start to flow around this, but right now I'm dealing with interminable forms and emails which are eating all my time, so hopefully you can bear with me. Also, times really have changed and it's tough out there. I've been for a number of interviews so far with no luck, while other jobs I just haven't heard back from. It was never like this ten years ago. Anyway, I'm trying to stay positive and I'll be sure to share any good news on here!
So, onto my first ever giveaway. I'm sure you'll understand that I can't do any monetary-type prizes right now... so this will be a time-based investment wherein I offer my critiquing services. However, I'm aware that not everyone who reads this blog will be a fiction writer, so I'm making the list of things I'll look at pretty wide. Basically, I'll do anything. Hey, I'm a trained editor after all.
This could include the following:
- Short story
- Opening three chapters of a novel or non-fiction work
- News article
- Essay or report
- Homework assignment
- Blog post
- Anything else you can think of
- Or if you don't have anything, how about an interview on my blog? Or a guest post (with option of a critique!)
In order to have a chance to win, you must comment on this post by Monday, June 11th, letting me know what prize you'd like. You can get an extra entry by doing any of the following: Tweeting it, Facebooking, Googling Plussing or broadcasting in any other form of media, while mentioning it in a blog post will secure two extra entries. Just make sure you leave a link of evidence in your comment. Three winners will be chosen at random after midnight GMT, two weeks' time.
Good luck!! And thanks to you all for being here! :o) To be honest, I'm scratching my head wondering how it happened!
