Scribophile

Doing the final editing on the next section of Oath Bound, and just wanted to give a quick look at how I do it.

I use Scribophile.com, which is kind of like Facebook meets editing. You earn karma points by reviewing/editing other people’s work, and then use those points to post your work for critiques. The site uses a ‘highlight’ feature that ensures every work gets at least three critiques.

Once I have my three critiques, I’ll print out one copy of the section, then go through each critique, mating what people have said, noting things I’ll change or think about changing on my hard copy. If there’s something multiple people have issues with, it’s usually a good indication that I need to rework it.

It’s a really good tool for working on my writing. If you’ve got 10 bucks a month, it’s well worth getting quick, varied feedback on what you’re doing.

    Glad you liked it! I think it is very instructive to be able to get quick feedback on writing. So often we focus on how many words we write, that a lot of times it’s difficult to make sure we’re getting better. Thanks for the comment, I look forward to hearing from you again!
