My second home...
Its my pleasure that I am a member of CC... Its like my second home... infact... as a writer its my first home.... where I get all the support and help I want to be able to go through the ups and down of a writer's life... everything you can think of, related to writers and writing, its here. I love CC very much. Its all about cooperation here... no dirty competition... no one will give you wrong suggestions to bring you down... everyone helps others as if their success is incomplete without the success of others... never seen, never heard but always ready to help... and User-Administrator relation is like friends... Its really nice to have something like CC in your life.... And those who want competition...well there are exercises that will challenge the writer within you with most difficult writing tasks... I can go on with this.... but I think I should give the new comers chance to explore CC... so for new users I wouls say...go ahead... join CC and feel the magic it holds.... And for CC I would say.... I LOVE CC very much...n this is the best thing to happen in my writing life till now..... and i know this will eventually lead me to having my dreams come true...and i am sure of that..so thank you for that, in advance.
Critique Circle is an online writing workshop for all authors, whether they write literary fiction, genre fiction, articles or short stories. Our purpose is to provide a place for writers to give and receive feedback on their work, and thereby learn from one another. The Critique Circle also includes forums as well as helpful writing tools for manuscript progress, submission tracking, character generation and more.
Workshops can be an invaluable resource to writers as they are a great way to get feedback and suggestions on their manuscripts, as well as providing a social forum for interaction with other writers. Online workshops such as the Critique Circle have the added advantage of being accessible at any time and from any location regardless of geography.
Membership to the Critique Circle is free and we welcome everyone interested in using an online forum to improve their writing skills while helping others improve theirs. Critique Circle is open to all genres, including science-fiction, fantasy, romance, children's novels, horror and suspense.
We've endeavored to make Critique Circle as writer-friendly and secure as possible. People have full control over their submissions, including the ability to either hide them from all other users or delete them at any time. People can also choose to have the stories only visible to those who regularly critique, or those who have critted in the past month. We believe this feature will make people feel more secure about using the critique forum.
Those supporting the Critique Circle also have the option to form their own private critique groups, integrated into the global critique system.
