Critique or No Critique


When I first became a published author, my DH was my first and only critique partner. Then I realized a couple of things. First, while his input was usually right on—and it took me a while to accept that—he was reader, not a writer. And that’s what I needed—someone who could tell me “This part drags” or “You had a pov shift here.” All that stuff another writer sees and points out (Very nicely, of course. No “This sucks” allowed.)

So if you’re on the verge of becoming published, find yourself a critique partner or two. I think you’ll find the time you spend revising based on solid criticism well worth it. Hang your ego on the porch and remember, the baby can always use a bit of spit and polish to really shine.

 Have a wonderful Sunday. I'm going to root for the 49ers to win today.
