Talking about critiquing.
I did say I’d share my experience so here It is.
My chapter talk turned out a little weird.
Four people were in attendance. Instead of doing the formal talk I’d written I did a question and answer session.
I asked why they wanted a CP. One member didn’t know anything about critiquing and was nervous about sharing her work. Another asked her how she expected to get past an editor?
I had to go back to the basics. I explained you need rules like how often, how many pages, meeting online or in person, what do you want from the critique? An overview, grammar, dialogue/ plot or character focus?
What do you do if it doesn’t work for you?
The end result was the four of us are going to start a group.
We’ll share the pages on-line then meet next month to discuss the critiques.
I’m hoping it is productive. If not, then no harm no foul.
Please follow, friend or like me. I love to hear from my readers.
