There has many of them. Aren't we all? So today I want to discuss critiques. How many of you have had one of those critiques that really didn't do your writing any good. In fact, it left you banging your head on the wall (or keyboard) for hours. You know what I am talking about. I am talking about the vague. The insincere. The trivia response.
I love honesty. I want to hear that you left the scene because a sentence was awkward. Or, tell me that my tags are eye-bugging. Tel me the truth, and leave it at that. keep it impersonal. Treat it like you are looking at a painting, a work of art. What works, what doesn't. Suggestions for fixes (even if I don't use them).
So what do you think makes a good Critique?
I would love to hear about your experiences. Chime in.
