Wow! What a Tuesday meeting this month. Every last one of us ended up acting around 14 throughout the meeting. I actually feel kinda bad for our innocent walk-in visitor. She may need therapy after this.
I volunteered to be the first author on the chopping block and got praise and hits pretty much where I expected to – though got nailed on a few points that definately need attention in the novel. What seemed to set us all off was the sex scene at the end of chapter 11. Everyone ended up getting the giggles (yes, folks, I’m using the taboo word, “giggles.”).
Then we went to the next author . . . and the next. Every critique ended up with inuendos of some kind. It was hilarious. I wish I’d been recording it.
Don’t get me wrong – the critiques were fantastic and spot-on for all of us. But the “Case of the Sillies” monster was playing our funny bones like a Xylophone.
I live for these kind of meetings!
