Well that answered my future question... are you a mind reader?  :o

Anyways, I was actually wondering how critiques are submitted? For example I'm critiquing a story in this week's submissions and wondering how I go about sharing it with the writer?
Books lie, but I swear they're truthful.

How should we go about sending our critiques?

Are you asking about sending the work to be critiqued?  Or about sending the critique on someone else's work?

For the first, hubay's answer is essentially correct, with caveats.  See the Welcome... post at http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=6850.0 for more details.

For the second, that's what the other threads are for -- the ones with date, username, and title.  The comments on other people's works are supposed to be added to the appropriate discussion topic for that author and chapter (the dates help figure out which chapter was read when, for those like me that sometimes remember times better than names).

sending the critique on someone else's work.

Then as I mentioned, the other topics are for that purpose.  For example, last week had Akoebel, Hubay, and SkyhunterCommander post topics at:
http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=8387.0
http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=8388.0
http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=8391.0

This week, Will777r and I posted topics at
http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=8404.0
and
http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?topic=8405.0

If you read some of the topics, or some of the older ones, you'll see how people offer a variety of critiques.  You can also reply to those topics (with the reply button on those pages) to post your own.  Also, the website keeps track of the posts you've read and haven't read, so once you read through some of  them, if new replies are added, a blue <new> badge shows up next to the topic.

Just so you know, everyone, I'm going to be without 'Net access again until sometime Monday.

Since nobody else has spoken up, I can send another chapter Monday as well.

I should have a chapter ready for tomorrow as well.
I will get around to giving feedback to my fellow Reading Excuses members. As soon as I can.

I just realized exactly how hectic and busy this next week will be, so I'm going to hold back and not submit anything for this week (or the next, probably).  I like getting feedback, but it would drive me nuts to know there might be feedback waiting that I can't get to yet.

How does one join the list?  Do I give my email address here?

@SirRobert
This works, but you should probably pm Silk just to make sure.

The other advantage of PMing me is that every bot out there can't see your email address. =)

So, Will and Hubay for Monday?

Thanks Silk for setting me up.  I can jump in on Monday if there is room.  Let me know.

Gasp, I think I will submit on Monday.

It's been way too long since I've submitted. I know this because I have to look over the submission guidelines here--the guidelines that I wrote. Guh. Think the last time was 2009...
