Name- carterkid

Story #1- The importance of fly fishing by mare

Story #2- jizzle of oz by delphinacarter

I have not read either of these stories [only the first chapter or so of jizzle of oz]

I have read stuff by these authors before

I don't have a twitter username

I would have answered this thing sooner but I'm having trouble with my internet so I don't know when it will work and when it won't.  Cheesy

Now that most of you have picked your stories, feel free to start reading them. Emily is not by a computer but will be participating and once she picks her two stories, I'll go ahead and pick my last one. I don't think Shania is going to participate but other than that I think you guys are all set, so let me explain what happens just in case you want to get started early.

On June 1st I'll be making another thread which we will use for the remainder of the challenge. Once a week I'll be jumping in there just to see how everyone is doing with the reading. I do like people to go in and comment on things they have read and ask questions to the authors when you feel you need to. You should be leaving feedback on every single chapter this year. I changed this rule from last year, but otherwise the same rules apply as before.

Authors SHOULD be responding to your reviews as well. That's where you'll have most of your dialogue with your writers. Any specific questions about plot points you have etc... should be done in there as not to give too much away in the challenge thread, but I'll also post general topic questions for us to answer.

There will also be three different surveys that need to be filled out during the course of this challenge for each story you read.

The halfway there survey (when you're at the halfway point of the story you're reading)
The final survey (when you are done)
The writer's survey (about your experience with the person reading your story)

Try to pace yourself accordingly. You have plenty of time to read these stories, so don't binge read them both in two days time! LOL

Have fun! And if you have any questions for me about this, post them here! Smiley

Name: Emily

First story you are choosing to read? Save a Prayer by Carter_Orange

Second story you are choosing to read? Switch by carterkid

Have you read either of these stories before? No.  I read the first chapter of Save a Prayer and was intrigued, but my ADD got the best of me and I never got back to it.

Have you read anything by either of these authors before? I've read some of Steph's (Carter_Orange)

What is your twitter username?  emily_michele8 4
