Ah, yes, the catch...I can't really think of one. What do I get out of it? A useful range of critiques hopefully, my darling readers.
Here's the background (pay attenion, now). Chris Eldin set an interesting writing exercise that ran over four weeks. Each week she gave us some elements to incorporate into a story. Seven of us made it through the four weeks, with some running wild with the elements, and some taking them more literally. The result is a fascinating range of stories, technically using the same ideas - but wow, are they different! There's action and horror, womens' and literary - and the other three!
About half way through, Evil Editor got wind of this (or Chris told him, who knows) and he's going to comment on the stories. If you know EE, then you'll know that this could be helpful or hilarious, or, more likely, both.
Check them out at I kiss you for doing writing exercises. And if you have time, please leave your comments!
