Are any of you fellow readers/writers/bloggers on Scribophile? I just stumbled across it and I must admit, I’m smitten already.
I think the concept is awesome, first of all: it’s a serious writing critique group with a “karma system:” you have to give long critiques before you can even post your work. Very clever, though a bit time consuming.
My only disappointments are two: first, you can’t save a draft of the critique you’re writing without purchasing the premium plan, so you have to do it all in one sitting. Okay, fine.
Second, the website is difficult to access via mobile, and almost impossible to critique via mobile. This presents a big problem for me because I don’t have Internet and must be out and about somewhere to be able to effectively interact with the site.
Beyond that, I am very excited about starting to share my work on Scribophile… once I get my novel finished, that is. I’ve been practicing word sprints as my form of daily writing… just today, I reached 3100 words per hour during a 25-minute sprint. Woohoo! Fastfast!
What keeps you motivated to keep wtiting?
