Critique Group- Three in Three

Last week, my local critique group was inspired (thanks Joan!) to write three children's books in three weeks. Naturally, these are rough drafts - ideas that have been floating about for months or years. They are no where near submission standards, but may show a glimmer of hope. The critique group will choose the best two from each member. The writer will learn why we think these manuscripts have the best potential. A niche in the marketplace? The voice is different? The illustrative potential is huge? The idea is to get our ideas down on paper. Inspire us to write something new. A bit daunting, but a sure motivational tool. Those of you who are in critique groups (and if you are writing, you should be in a critique group)- fire up your group! What challenge can you design? Get your engines started...
