Blog Crit of Planning for Love by Christi Barth

The text and critique are only posted on this blog and not on a true public forum. Next Wednesday, I'll critique again.

If you're interested in a critique, send your first 500 words to me at lynnette_labelle at hotmail dot com. Please put "Blog Critique" in the subject, so I know it's not spam. Let me know the genre of the sample and whether or not I have permission to use your name. There are a few people still waiting for crits, so your piece will be added to the queue. I'll let you know roughly how long it'll be once I receive your sample.

Please note: I'm only accepting one sample per person at this time.

Thanks to all who've volunteered to share their work on my blog.


  1. That was fantastic! You've definitely got me wondering what's next. Especially because your character is so easy to relate to-clumsy, a smudge sarcastic, a dreamer. Wonderful job.

  2. wow, brave souls to put work out there. how neat for you to crit and how cool for her to chase her dream so avidly. that's how they are reached.
