Who doesn’t love a critique? Palms sweating and stomach fluttering with butterflies as you sit down in front of the esteemed editor or agent about to pass judgment on you. Er, I mean your manuscript.
But seriously, a critique from a publishing professional can do so much more for you than feed an adrenaline habit.
My first critique taught me to let my character tell her own story.
My worst critique left me frustrated and angry…and ready to write the story that was in my heart instead of something I thought people would want to read.
At my next critique, the editor wanted to read more of that story.
And, yes, I met my agent at a critique.
