You’ve been busy, Kathy! Love your bio.
After the critique, will you be getting the story edited, or is the critique considered an edit? I’ve always wondered how anthologies work when it comes to that.
I turned in my short story for critique on Friday and expect it back by Wednesday.
In the meantime I decided to play with the AutoCrit Destination Unknown Challenge. They provided the first line, it has to be the opening line.
Opening line: The attack was over in seconds.
Then they set a twist and everyone was freaking out. I hadn’t written anything yet because I was trying to get done with my short story.
Here’s the twist: The story must not contain physical violence.
I understood from what they explained and discussed: It can have already happened or be a future threat. It can not be on the page.
Silly me ran with the original Star Trek series then changed some names and things to make it different. It’s at 570 words.
Oh yeah I wrote a bio for the Hearts Through History Anthology that the short story was for.
When her aunt was published at age 73 years young after taking a couple of writing classes at the local community college, Kathy Crouch decided to dip her fingers into the ink. A native Texan, she’s a widow of a Vietnam Veteran as well as a Vietnam Era veteran herself. Kathy writes a variety of genres. She is a research demon and a bit of a techie in love with computer stuff. In May 1983, she earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology combined with a minor in Language Arts. In September 2007, she joined Romance Writers of America and took workshop after workshop to hone her craft. She continues to take workshops to improve and increase her writing skills and knowledge.
Now, at age 70 she is on the brink of being published.
