This forum is for questions that don't fit into a more specific workshop's forum. (If there's a more specific forum that's appropriate, please post there.) For example, a post about writing science fiction belongs in the SF writing forum, but a post about writing that applies to all writers could go here. Questions about the general nature of the critique.org workshops could go here, but not about a specific workshop.

Extra Credit - sharing credits between workshops

Postby aburt » Fri Nov 19, 2010 1:31 am

Critter member Greg Hullender talked me into it... that there's some benefit to sharing critique credits between workshops. Particularly with them being so new and all. Now, my goal is to get y'all to do critiques, since that's, well, good for you -- doing critiques helps improve your craft, so you should want to do them. But to encourage people to try out the new workshops, notably in areas that you also work but may be secondary for you, I can see the benefit to some sharing of credits.

So I've rigged something up -- you can read about it here: http://critique.org/c/extracredit.ht

See what you think, and let me know...

I'm afraid this is far too complicated for me. All those percentages and exceptions and whatnot. I guess for someone with a PhD in mathematics it makes sense, but it's beyond ordinary mortals like me. I hope I can just continue to crit, without doing these complicated complications, and it will all work out somehow.

Yeah, I'm sure it'll work out fine if you just do critiques. A really simple way to approach it would be: If you do one critique credit per week, you'll have some extras to apply to other workshops so you can dip your toes into another workshop without having to go full tilt at it.

Doing critiques is what it's all about, since that helps you improve your craft as much as getting a piece critiqued. So the more the merrier. :)
