Anyway, I wanted to issue a public thank you to the lovely and gracious Kristin. Kristin is my critique partner. It is very hard, in my experience, to find a successful critique partner. Such a critique partner must:
- Provide good feedback,
- Enjoy reading your work,
- Write stuff that you enjoy reading.
I think it's important to find someone who enjoys your work. I tried a critique partnership a few years back, but the novel was a literary ghost story that I couldn't get into. The author didn't seem to like my novel either, and since was my trunk novel, I can't say I blame her. We eventually lost track of each other.
This past weekend, Kristin and I have engaged in another round of critiques, and she's really helped me out. Therefore, I wanted to thank her! Go visit her blog. She's lively and insightful, and her blog is always a must-visit for me.
