Critique Partners and Revisions

Greetings from the land of clouds. I just hope the clouds bring snow to the mountains (yay, skiing!) and leave those of us in the valley alone. (I hate driving in snow. Especially considering some of the drivers around here. =-0 )

I'm revising my latest WIP. It's taking forever. And driving me nuts. And if I didn't have my fabulous critique partner, I'd be paddling by hand up a very disgusting brown creek.

So here's a wee roundup of articles about dealing with critique partners and critique groups. (You have one of those, don't you? If not, do consider finding one. We're all a little blind when it comes to our own work.)

Shelly Thacker Meinhardt's The Gentle Critique: How to Survive (and Thrive) in a Critique Group

Carolyn LaFever's A Brave New World: An Online Critiquing Primer

Terescia Harvey's The Critique Partner from Hell, or One Hell of a Critique Partner

and finally, even if you're in a crit group or partnership, and especially if you go it alone, take a look at agent Vivian Beck's Be Your Own Critic.

Cate as a result of this I wrote a chapter for the Sam Jenkins writer challenge at Terescia's site. LOL
Had fun as usual. The labrador's been gobbling down the dog biscuits faster than Quick Draw McGraw can draw.

Hi Penny! Glad the post helped. Your lab sounds like our fat kitty with any kind of kibble. (g)
