PK Hrezo has been asked to write the story of an amazing young lady by the name of Queena. Six years ago, she was strangled, beaten, raped, and left for dead. She suffered multiple brain injuries and lost a lot of her mobility. PK has started a Kickstarter fund for this project. Help her by either donating or spreading the word. See her site for details.

IWSG this week was about what to look for in a good critique partner.
One of the items I mentioned was a sense of humor. I’m blessed to have critique partners who excel at snarky humor.
So for those of you who dread critiques and worry they might upset or anger, let me show you why I chuckle my way through them:
Heather, who also had some funny visuals I wish I could include –
We might be gone for a while, he thought.
Aden is always thinking.
And I can’t win if I can’t play.
You have an ‘and’ at the beginning of your sentence addiction.
Damn, what have I done?
WHAT? I thought you were kidding!
Rusty and his ongoing issue with eyebrows –
…his scowl pulling his brows into one.
Hey!!!! I remember this discussion. I like how you married to the two into a sorta compromise (although I still contend we only have one brow anyway).
…his brows together.
Still bugs me.
The com officer’s brows…
Knife in my heart
Vardy’s drawn brows…
You’re rubbing my face in it, aren’t you?
Lynda felt sorry for the com buttons –
Aden mashed the com button…
These com buttons get a beating ;)
…mashing a final button.
Looks like the Balkan's buttons are going to get a beating too ;)
He mashed the com button.
You know all the com buttons are going to unite in protest for better treatment of buttons... they might even revolt. Better watch your back ;)
…her short stature a hindrance.
Hey! Short people can run fast too!! :P
Short people and buttons unite!! ;)
