Hey guys! Would anyone be interested in a critique or writing response given live in the chatroom?

You'd just come say hi, and link to where you posted the story/art/poetry/lyrics/etc, and I'd read it and respond on the spot. That way, if I have any questions or if I get super excited, I don't have to wait-- I can tell you right away! And you'll know what I'm thinking as I read. Then if you want, we could talk about what you're gonna do next. I could totally look at how you do critiques, too, if you wanted.

I'll be hanging around the chatroom for most of this weekend (Jan. 15-18) when I'm available, and I'm itching for things to do before the intensity of the semester hits me for real. Let me know when you'll be there (GMT) and it'll be even more likely I'll be around!

This is a good idea.
I'm also willing to do this! with the caveat that I won't do really long things.
Also, I'll look at pieces that aren't actually posted to this forum, so long as you're a contributing member.

This is a really good idea. I'll try and be in and out to offer critiques too.

That's per se a good idea, but I've noticed that a written critique tends to increase the rating of the object of the critique, doesn't it?
I'm not a big fan of Mr. Trump's method to attract voters but, guys, you cannot deny that it works. Anybody wants to answer this?

So, you think that we like things more when we write a review for them?

That's often true.

But real life person to person critique chat can also be a wonderful thing!

I'd also be willing to offer critiques, both prose and poetry. I'll be in chat whenever I can get on, which is mostly a lot. Do keep in mind that I live in Korea, which is GMT+9, which is great I think for YWO members who live in Asia, Australia, NZ, Fiji, etc etc etc.

As for me, frankly, Sarah, mostly I enjoy Dabs's and InfinityMan's critique more than the object of their critique. It's a wonder those guys make these things for free. But like I said a face to face critique is interesting thing, mobile and innovative. And by the same token, quite handy. I don't see any point to argue.

This is a pretty good idea. I'll be willing to do some critiques too, whenever I'm online for a good chunk of time.
