Being EU timezone, US evenings are definitely off limits to me.

Yeah. They're still being held in the mornings. Was just seeing if anyone might want to do an evening sesh, like BS, Sha, path, or other evening TS frequenters.

I have more problems with evenings, and couldn't attend both.  Alas.

Dropbox is super easy to use.  It's definitely easier than emailing documents around to multiple people.  It allows you to create and share a link for people to download your sample.

This last time we read for a while and waited until we were done to start talking.

Just finished the first chapter, it's just under 3K words. I'm armed and ready!

I really want you guys to rip me apart before the web fiction critics do. Those guys are vicious.

I'd be interested in joining in, if there were a week-day afternoon/evening (preferably Wednesday) scheduled.

Is it possible to request feedback on specific aspects of the writing, such as... did this paragraph succeed in building suspense? did any section of this chapter provoke some kind of emotional response?

The way we did it last time was first a general critique, and then questions if any were left.

Friday, could you repost the definite time to meet on TS tomorrow? The previous info is a bit confusing. It IS scheduled for tomorrow, right?

It is schedule for tomorrow.  The plan, at the end of last week, was for this week's meeting to be at 10 am EDT/server time.  I guess Is Friday is the final authority on whether it'll be at 10 or 11, though.

Erm, what's the difference between EST and EDT? I'm confuzzled. Hopefully I'll catch the right time.

EDT is Eastern Daylight Time and is what most of the eastern coast of the US is in right now.  It's what server time is.  10 am EDT is in about half an hour.

Indeed. Ripped to pieces by Valeria, and it was great. Will do again in 2 weeks.

I continue to find it super helpful.  Maybe a little demoralizing sometimes, but extremely good.

Am I still allowed to come even if I don't have any new material? :'(  Maybe I can bring a revision?

That's okay! But it'll just be me and you maybe, unless somebody else rogers up for this Sat morning.

Looks like I can make it, after all. Maybe I can get TS fixed, too, and prepare some comments for Friday's story that we didn't cover last time.

What time on Saturday?  I have to work most of the day, but I'm free for a couple hours in the AM.
