Depends on how much time I have to spare, lol. But usually I manage one or two a week.

I crit enough to keep up my 2:1 ratio, but then again, I don't post my own work that often. I went with once or twice a week, because that's my bare minimum -- usually I try for one about every other day (time permitting, of course).

I would have had to say some more than three or four times a day - but I haven't seen before my jaunt off to Paris. !_!' Now exams and fencing are threatening the equilibrium.


Manage about...once or twice a week...

I should try to critique more, but I find it hard with my busy scheadule. I'll probably critique more over summer break when I have the time. I don't really count how many times I critique.

I didn't answer the poll, only because the option us "not as often as I'd like" isn't there.

I've been meaning for a few months, for example, to read and critique a few chapters of Flames of Lacresa, written by WritersDomain, but every time I've gone to do so, I've gotten distracted by something else, though I'm HOPING that it won't happen tonight. >.> I really need to start critiquing more, especially since I don't really have anything of my own writing to post at the moment.

Usually anywhere from one to three times a week. I try and critique the newer writers' stuff as well as the younger people to help them feel more at home. Also I stick to the genres I know best, like fantasy and action/adventure fiction.

Depends on what's floating around, really.

For me it comes in waves.

I may go a week without a crit to my name.

And then I may have an excessive amount of free time for a few days, and I'll get 50 crits in. It's all just based on my time and my mood.

But I'd peg my average as more then once a day.
The good parts of a book may be only something a writer is lucky enough to overhear or it may be the wreck of his whole damn life — and one is as good as the other.

To me it is always comeing random. I might do a few crits or a lot of crits. But when I chose I picked "Few times a week". But some times it is different. It is always random for me.

[Firearris] 10:46 pm: aquires the weasel and renames it "Cat"

Take that, Lumi.

I crit poetry most of the time, so usually two [maybe three] a day - sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on if I have time. I crit two/three different places, so even if it seems like I didn't do much in one place it adds up by the end of the day.

I crit novels and belong to far too many crit groups, so my critting can be kind of slow. It seriously depends on whether I'm in 'the mood'. If I am, I usually do 1-2 a day, if I'm not ... maybe one every couple of weeks. ><

Well I don't really get on much, so not very often. But I try to critique every time I get on.

Not as often as I should! But part of that is senior year and the business! So I hope I'll have more time this summer to actually sit down a crit like I used to.
