The next round of May revisions is up! How did we do?
Please, everyone, roll up your sleeves and help us with constructive critiques. Hopefully, all five entries are now okay on structure and bigger-picture things, and we can start narrowing our focus to things like voice-violations or POV issues, crutch words, passive voice, and so on.
Remember, for the most part, we're not line-editing. It's okay to suggest rephrasing something if it is an example of a more general problem, or if there is a section that stands out, but overall, we're looking at ways to improve the manuscript that the writer can carry forward through the whole piece.
