Critique: Never An Amateur Move.

No, I didn’t jump off the edge of the Earth…

Or go on a fancy schmancy vacation or one of those fabulous writer’s retreats. I wish!

And… *cue the orchestra*

 I have NOT forgotten about my poor poor neglected blog…

Okay maybe a little. Okay…

A. LOT. *pause for acceptance*

BUT…

I was going through a p-h-a-s-e. (yes writers have these)

I didn’t make a run for that fabulous job I was so excited about. I never made it off the runway. I saw a detour and I took it! Pitiful I know…unless I can get you on my side of the fence. It will only take a few minutes of your time. Really!

So in fact, I’ve spent gobs, an insane amount of time,  with a wonderful group of ladies…they really make my day. I’m lucky I don’t have a hemorrhoid from the time spent, butt in chair, over critiques and exchanges during the last several months. *happy dance*

My Inbox has never been happier…and what do I need a runway for when I have this group of women to back me up and cheer me on? I’m giddy just sayin’ so!

I ♥ my critique group! I feel like I know these ladies well by now. I’m loving their feedback and can’t get enough of them! They are AWESOME!

 I have been popping out revisions like crazy! I’m so amazed at my own progress.

So when I came across Writer’s Relief and their post here:

I realized how incredulously lucky I REALLY am to have a group that already functions as a checklist for these hilarious mistakes…AND so much more! Heaven forbid I EVER make those amateur mistakes!

It is rockin’ fabulous to have the support that I have from this group! ‘Nuff said? Not quite yet!

So if you are lucky enough to have a critique group like this, one that goes above and beyond the call of duty, please SHOUT IT OUT! They deserve the praise.

Yours Truley,

One VERY grateful writer clearly addicted to her, AHEM, fabulous critique group
