Letter Tip #5: Ask For Reader Input
If you refer back to the rules at the main page of the event, you will read:
Leave a comment at Elegance of Fashion in the post of the asking letter (It must be in that post!): the comment should contain the name of the character you're answering, the name of the character you are writing for and the URL of the answering letter post at your blog.
Notice that I didn't say that you could only have one draft for a letter! The URL that I ask for is the final draft of your responding letter. You could put up first drafts at your blogs and have readers comment on their suggestions.
Think about it: in school, your teachers have probably said that for papers -- have a parent or a friend read your paper to make sure it sounds okay. This would be similar. And of course, you can all help each other out! Just make sure that the URL I get is the URL to the final copy.
How helpful was this tip? If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment. I'll try my best to help out.
