This is a post I’ve been thinking of making for a while now, because I first found out that asexuality existed just through people on Facebook posting stuff, and it’s still not very well known, so I wanted to spread the word.

First, a disclaimer: This is a pretty simplified explanation, and I can't claim to represent everyone. That said, I've done my best, and I hope it will be a useful overview. Plus there are links at the end if you want more information!

OK, my third and final how-to-critique post is up! It's got questions for you to ask yourself about the story you're critiquing!

And don't forget all the other lovely posts at the blog, including the first two parts of my critique series, at alpha.spellcaster.org/blog. They are all truly awesome. And coming up next on Friday will be Elena's post on "How to find a good critique," so go back then to see!

Just letting you know that part two of How to Critique just went up! It's on the ever-controversial subject of line edits (I'm for them). If you haven't read part one yet, you should probably read that first, though it's not totally essential.

And there are still lots of other great posts up on the alpha blog besides mine, so if you haven't seen them, go take a look!


On a totally unrelated note, but while I'm linking, Hyperbole and a Half (of "The Alot is better than you at everything") continues to have awesome posts that describe my life scarily well (minus the staying up until 3 am).

Alpha has an incredibly awesome blog at alpha.spellcaster.org/blog. Everyone should read it!

Especially read it now, because I just posted! It's about How to Critique, and it's the first in a three-part series on... how to critique. The next one will go up Friday, then the third one Monday.

All right, so it might not sound as cool as the previous posts (herbs! agencyideas!), but it is hopefully interesting and/or useful! So go see!

Here is the bit that shows up on the blog page, as a teaser...

How to Critique: Part One

July 19, 2010 – 07:07

Welcome to the first post in my three-part series on How to Critique!

Now, obviously I am not magically the Best Critiquer Ever Born in the Universe. This is a mix of the stuff that works for me when I’m critiquing and the stuff that I like critiques to do for me. Other critiques Read more
