I know a bunch of people who find this site useful, so why not feature it on my blog?
Critique Circle is similar to websites like FictionPress, where you can submit your work and others can review it. Supposedly, everyone gets at least one critique, unlike other sites, where your work can languish for months without being read even once. The website seems to be geared towards writers who are seriously considering publication.
-It uses a point-based system, which I find irritating, but it may be motivational for other writers.
-It also has character name generators, a word meter builder, and a few other interesting tools that set it apart from other critique sites.
-It doesn’t allow fanfiction. This is a plus for me, but may be a turn-off to other writers who enjoy such things.
-There’s a forum on the site as well, but FictionPress also has forums. I don’t think I’d be dumping my FictionPress account for Critique Circle, but it may be a good alternate place to put my work.
Overall, my main motivation to use it would be the features mentioned above that aren’t offered on other sites, and the fact that you are supposedly guaranteed a critique.
Anyone here ever use Critique Circle? What are your favorite/least favorite features?
