Critiquing my new Critique group*


Here are some reasons I love my new critique group.

  1. It’s small, and we can get through everything in 90 minutes.
  2. Nobody gets defensive (which helps with #1).
  3. I agree with 90% of their comments**
  4. We all live within a relatively short ride of each other***

I hope they also bring good snacks, but that might be too much happiness.

*With apologies to my old ones, because they were also quite wonderful.

**So they are clearly brilliant and insightful.

***Unless it’s rush hour, because, you know, Northern Virginia.
