Love them or hate them. But they are necessary in the life of a writer.
Necessary to receive and necessary to give.
I feel like we're gearing up for critique season. Maybe that's because the ACFW Genesis contest and the Carol awards are on the horizon.
And since I personally have a lot of room for improvement in my critiquing skills, I'm curious how you go about giving critiques. Maybe we can all learn something new today. :)
So please share with me. How did you learn to critique? What do you notice right away when reading someones work? Do you enjoy giving a critique to another writer? Do you enjoy submitting your own work to be critiqued? Are you entering any of your work in either the Genesis or the Carol Awards?
