out of all the weeks the program has been running, I have been matched exactly three times, and twice, the match was with the same person, who was perfectly nice, but didn't seem all that interested in actually exchanging any writing to crit. Perhaps it's just the genre I write in, but the program doesn't seem to fit everyone.
This is a great program and I appreciate your coordinating it. Thank you! My only suggestion is what if you could chose the genres you'd be willing to read instead of the genre of your story and made matches according to that? It might be easier to find matches-I personally like reading different genres-and there were a couple of times when I didn't get a match because there wasn't a crit partner available in my genre.
