#88 Critique Group Feedback
So. Much. Judgment.
One traditional way of improving your writing is through the use of critique groups. The idea is pretty simple. You give your writing to other writers and they tell you what you’ve done well.
And what you’ve done wrong. Mostly that.
Don’t get me wrong, some groups are great. Supportive, encouraging, the works. But others, well not so much.
And this bunch? Well, look at the guy in front? Does that say ‘happy reader’ to you? I think not. More like ‘what made you think you could call yourself a writer?’ And the black one giving me the cold shoulder… Yeah, they’re a pretty tough crowd.
Like I said: So. Much. Judgement.
How’s a gal to get any work done knowing she’s got to face that mob? Maybe if I start writing tuna fish recipes…
Does anyone else have a four footed critique group to please?
