Rate Your Story

I found this awesome blog called Rate Your Story, and I thought it was such a wonderful idea, I submitted three stories.  What I really like about Rate Your story is, you get general feedback to let you know if you're on the right track, if you've been derailed somewhere or your train never left the station (not sure why I'm using train analogies)!  Because I appreciated the feedback they gave me and because I LOVE helping writers with rhyming stories, I asked if I could be one of their judges - and they said YES!  

Here's how it works:
1 - Submit a story you've written.
2 - One or more judges (maybe me) will read your story.
3 - You'll receive a rating from 1: "Great story - you should consider submitting this" to 10: "Consider this story as practice and write a new one."
4 - You can visit the Professional Critiques page if you'd like an in depth critique of your story. 

So, if you've written a story and you're not sure whether it's ready to submit, close to being ready, or needs a lot more work - this is the blog for you!  Check it out!
