    Just joined as Russ Patterson (not my real name). Will keep an eye out for y'alls work and give it my best stuff.

    I likely won't be posting much for review there in the next while as I am currently spending a lot of time editing my wife's work, and doing a top to bottom re-write of my WIP before I finish the darned thing.

    @Brian Scott Allen: no such group. I couldn't find a way to create one. The ability to do so is not listed as one of the Premium perks. Perhaps someone else can help. I'd be all for one of those. Meanwhile, I'm in the Fantasy Fricasse group, which is pretty active.

    I've combed the thread and have found the following people on Scribophile:
    Ryan Crown
    Philip Overby
    Rue Hirsch
    Jacqueline Miller
    Garren Jacobsen (Brian Allen)
    A. Howitt
    Russ Patterson

    If anyone else is interested, please post your Scribophile name on this thread. We have enough people for a volleyball team. Perhaps we could get enough to make a baseball team or even football (either kind).

    I promise to crit any Mythic stuff posted there. I also promise to put something of my own up RSN.

  4. Skip,

    You either need 50 rep. points or premium membership. From your comments I assume you have premium, go to your groups, on the right hand side you'll find a create a group button.

    Y'all got me curious, so I've signed up as well. Still trying to navigate it, and I'm a fair way from having anything that I want opinions on, but it looks interesting.

    I do not have premium. I signed up to Scribophile but really have not taken advantage of it yet. It's rather difficult to find folks, even within groups. For our field, Fantasy Fricasse seems to be the most active.

    I need to be a more conscientious critter, and have been too preoccupied with my own writing to be a good neighbor.

    I definitely intend on going premium soon, like within the next few weeks (while I focus on finishing this second draft of my novel so no distractions). The perks seem very useful to those who have publishing set in their sights. I really enjoy Scribophile and have been making an effort to be more involved there lately.
     
  9. So, I have enough to make a group, but I can't make it private unless I have premium. I don't plan on getting. So, do we want to keep the group private or should we open it up to everyone? (As an aside I like this community's forums a lot more than over there. After posting a topic that raises people's ire I wish to thank this group for being so dang awesome, even if we disagree.)

    I agree about the forums. I think what distinguishes between the two is Scribophile is built for critiques, offering tools Scribes doesn't have; Scribes, otoh, has a sense of professionalism and community missing ... well, just about everywhere else.

    Brian, I'm about to get a premium membership so I'd be happy to do the private group for us. That way we can critique Scribes over there too.

    I had a premium membership but it lapsed...otherwise I'd do it. I think it's a great idea and with a Mythic Scribes group (you might want to ask Black Dragon to use the name), I'd be more inclined to step back over there and participate more.

    I've just made sure I've followed you all back. I agree that Mythic Scribes seems friendlier but maybe that's because being critiqued in public is a bit daunting, unless you're among friends. :grouphug:

    Went ahead and made a group - here it is if you'd like to join:

    Log In/MythicScribes

    PM me at Scrib and I'll add you to it. I've made the group private for now and if anyone had their heart set on leading the mythic scribes group, just lemme know and I can transfer ownership :)

    My first chapter is in the Main Spotlight now.

    Note that, per the discussion thread in the Showcase forum, I plan to insert a chapter from the antagonist POV before the second scene.

    Hello everyone :)

    I know this is a bit of an older thread but I thought I'd bump it to let you all know that I've made the switch from my old critique sites to Scribophile as well. I went through and I think I add all of you to favorites. Over there I'm Stephanie Villegas with an image from the always breathtaking William-Adolphe Bouguereau. ATM I'm working in a different genre when I finish, I'll hopefully be posting more Fantasy.


    While I'm here ... just thought I'd ask - how long does the main spotlight queue usually take? Do you post 1 chapter at a time or would it be better to put 2 or 3 in line for the queue and (if need be) fix them along the way?
