Musings on the Craft of Writing

►Always Seek Out Good Critiques

Thanks to the folks at There and Draft Again for giving away critique prizes.  I won a First 5K word critique by K.L. Schwengel.

She wrote, and I love that she asked how brutally honest I wanted her to be.  I told her to unload both barrels.  This is what helps us grow as writers, hearing unveiled honesty from those in the know.

  3. Brutal honesty is always pretty scary – to get and give. But super helpful.

    • If the person giving the critique has a good grasp of writing (and of your genre) then you can always get something useful.

  4. Totally off subject, but if memory serves me correct, this is a new format on your blog isn’t it?
    If not: then I guess that I haven’t been paying attention. It looks great!

    • Hi Suzanne, I cleaned it up a little, and tweaked the sidebars. Glad you like it.
