Me too!

Is Word okay? I'm trying to learn how to use 'track changes'. I can read through a chapt every other night and send 'overall thoughts', kind of like what we do on Figment. For more intense edits--edits that require a lot more thought--I can manage a chapter a week. Either is fine.

For my WIP, I'm still plotting so I need help with tension, story movement, character etc. Whatever you think needs improving.

When ready, just shoot me an email. I'm excited to see what you've been working on. Btw, so stoked we're doing this!

Yes, please.

Definitely interested. I've been workshopping with another friend so I've already put aside the time if you'd like to set up a weekly schedule. For revisions, are you going for plot or are you already down to line edits? Either is fine.

So excited for you LR! I'll confess you are one of my favorite writers. If there is anything I can do to help you with your writing career please don't hesitate to ask.
