I am one lucky writer. I have an awesome critique partner who knows her stuff, gives great feedback and likes my book!
A good critique partner is a difficult thing to find. I’ve swapped books with other writers before and have always learned a lot and enjoyed the process. Giving criticism — I’ll call it constructive feedback for a more positive spin — is a fabulous way to develop and grow as an author. It’s so important to find a critique partner who likes your genre, likes the way you write and, most importantly, can see the shortcomings and communicate them. I have found that person. Thank you, writing goddess!
So I am learning, and working, and reading and editing, and getting up the next day and doing it all over again. Only now I have someone to keep me honest in the process thanks to Lisa!
And on another unrelated topic, I am training myself to only put one space after a period, rather than the two spaces I was taught several decades ago. Wowza, old habits die hard.
Happy Monday, everyone.
