Critiquing critiquies


Here is my new absolute rule for responding to a critique group’s suggestions

Don’t bristle. Silently take what you like, ignore what you don’t, especially when it sounds like a line from a class.They haven’t read the whole novel and they may not remember the last section they did, so some things won’t make sense to. Also, taste varies from person to person.**

*File under, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

**And nobody’s will ever be as excellent as yours. HAHAHAHA

  1. LMAO!

    I’ve had mostly good experiences from critique groups and received good info back that truly helped me.

    But, there was…that one time.

    I submitted a CHARACTER SKETCH and asked for feedback. a woman responds – never addressing the character sketch, but instead goes on to OUTLINE MY STORY, telling me the items I should include and characters I should add.

    Wait, what?
