Some time back I wondered whether offering non-form replies to queriers would be a good idea. You said yes, and very enthusiastically.
I've decided to give it a whirl on a trial basis for the next few weeks.
On Saturday night (oh man, this is just proof positive I have no life!) if you query between 7pm and 8pm Eastern Daylight Time (and ONLY that time) I will reply to you individually. I may not reply during that exact time window, but your query has to arrive in that window.
You have to put "Chum Bucket" in the subject line so I know you WANT to participate.
I'd really REALLY appreciate it if you didn't write back to tell me all the reasons I'm an idiot until at least a day has gone by and you might have cooled down.
I am NOT guaranteeing feedback or critiques on each letter, although that may happen. This is ONLY a personal, non-form reply guarantee.
The queries need to be for real. If I request something and you tell me it's not ready, or you were just kidding, I will come to your house and gnaw on you till you realize the error of your ways.
Shout out in the comment column and we'll develop an FAQ for our little experiment.
