Your Title - version 2.0
Hello there odd collection of people who read my ramblings!
I have an idea for a project. I was going through some of the really old pieces in my gallery recently that I haven't looked at in a long time, sorting through them and picking out some to edit and putting stuff into gallery folders to keep it organized and I had an idea. This would be the project:
-select a handful of pieces (3-5) that you have an eye to improve, and could use feedback on
-copy or move them into a gallery folder titled "project edit"
-visit like gallery folders of fellow deviants and leave feedback for them
-receive feedback on your own pieces
-consider the input of your fellow writers and tackle your edit.
-link me with finished pieces and I will select some to feature in subsequent "project edit" journals
-propagate this project by suggesting participation from fellow writers

Here's the thing, I think many people lack for in depth feedback. For someone like myself, I can't expect anyone to really spend a whole lot of time giving feedback on any one piece because I spam the hell out of all of your inboxes. I think this will encourage targeted feedback on the pieces where people actively want to utilize it.
It doesn't have to be a full on critique, but try to go beyond "i liked this" or "i didn't like this." Keep feedback courteous and respectful, but don't be afraid to tell someone what did not work for you. I think there is always a fear of offending the creator by indicating something was awry in their work. But here, the creator is ASKING what isn't working. Don't hold back, but again, BE RESPECTFUL
And writers, only choose pieces that you are going to be able to take an open critique of because the whole thing is pointless if you don't use it and just get upset when someone points out weaknesses in the writing.
Anyone who indicates that they would like to participate, I will add your name above along with the link to your project edit folder to create a hub of sorts for people to utilize. If no one indicates they would like to participate I will slink off and plot my revenge while I do my edits by myself, all the while singing James Blunt songs with a teary voice. Don't let that happen.
Edit: Looks like there wont be any need for the singing.
