A Tidbit

I like to critique new writers' work on the spot, as they pitch it. I interrupt pretty quickly, ask for information I need to help parse the concept or the story or the logic or the characters' psychology, or etc., it depends. Writers should always— here's the tidbit— state

The Category (upper middle-grade, etc.)
The Time Period and Place Setting (contemporary suburbia, etc.)
The Protagonist's Age
The Word Count and Number of Chapters

stay tuned for more tibdits . . .
