...yes, I will read your work if you need a criticial eye. You need to ask me to do it, though: else, I will just read it and go 'ooh pretty'. I don't tend to inflict the critical eye on work unless someone explicitly gives me permission.
  • I know I can trust you to be critical without being a bastard about it. So you are welcome to give constructive criticism if you encounter something of mine which moves you to.

  • I have you on my mental list of 'folks to ask to be first readers' of at least most of my stuff (I don't know for certain about all the stuff I may write about; inflicting het romance on you seems cruel). And I value this greatly.
    • eeeh- het romance ain't that different from queer romance. It's just gender pronouns, really.
      • It's not a genre you read, and it's seriously bad writing. In general I try to find first-readers who at least know and preferably like the genre. I might inflict Regency romantic comedy on you, but not the really tacky modern romances.
  • That's pretty amazing of you. I don't show a lot of my fiction even in early stages because people have asked me to read it, I've dutifully shown it to them, then they've given me a list of changes/problems/et cetera with the story.

    All of which would have been fine...if I was ASKING for that kind of thing.
    • --and is exactly why I just read a story and see if I enjoy it or not, if I'm not asked to take it apart.
      because frankly? taking a story apart takes WORK. And I am LAZY! ;)
