Congratulations, Alex Cavanaugh! Your brainchild Insecure Writers Support Group celebrates its two year anniversary today, and I’m happy to be part of the group.
Today I want to discuss critique partners, and I have many questions for you. Do you have a critique partner? Several? How does it work for you? (What’s the structure? Has it helped you? What do you wish you’d known when you started?)
A good friend and I agreed to be critique partners, and I want to learn from the collective wisdom of this group about how to make this relationship work best.
When I started writing, I posted stories online, and the feedback made me eager to get the next chapter out there. Now that I’m writing novels, my motivation has waned. I’m hoping that having an encouraging friend waiting for the next chapter will help inspire me to write more frequently.
In other news, my next novel On Best Behavior (The Conduct Series #3) launches 9-24-13. In celebration, my publisher slashed the price of the first novel in the romantic suspense series to only $.99.
If you have a moment, would you be willing to help spread the word by tweeting one of these?
