I know I haven't written in a while but today I joined this new site called Authonomy. I heard about it at retreat, which I just came back from this last weekend. (I'll post more on retreat next time.)
So not only did I join but I found a few posts online that talked about the disadvantages of Authonomy. But I still decided that I was going to join, if only for the reason to read stories from others who think they are ready to try and publish. That way I can at least see what publishers and editors are having to deal with. It can be amazing the level that you have to be at, and the level that is entered. So far, I read one story today and I took an hour doing it. Gave a critique and over all, the first person I read definitely wasn't ready. But it was still a good story. I left a good critique.
Anyhow, that is the post for today, and the following posts I read to beware of Authonomy.
Is Authonomy authentic?
Authonomy: Slushkiller or New Slush?
