4) Give feedback for 8 novel openings on Absolute Write. In progress. I'm up to 7 now.
5) Post updated opening to forum for feedback. Edit again based on responses. In progress. I posted the opening today. I've gotten two responses already, both absolutely ripping it to shreds. I'm going to give it another day or two to accumulate responses, and then it looks like I'll be doing a serious re-think and re-write of the opening for the rest of the month.
