Critique Groups

How useful is a critique group?  Very!!  Especially if you are a beginner writer.  I belong to one and enjoy it immensly.  Try one out and see how it improves your writing.  Just remember the rules:

1. Don’t argue.  Even if you are trying to justify what you are saying don’t get upset.

2. If more than one person says a comment about your manuscript than there could be a rewrite in your future.

3. Own your work.  People will have advice and so forth but you are the one who has to like it in the end.

4. Have fun!  It is good to get out in the community especially for writers because we work alone.

I hope this helps. 🙂

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
