Time to Mix it Up!
That was until she found her first critique partner. After reading her CP's work she thought, 'Oh my gosh! She's going to think I'm HORRIBLE!'
And when the writer got the critique back....
She didn't. The CP didn't think the writer was horrible. She thought the green, new, very naive writer, had A LOT of work to do, but she pointed the writer in the right direction. Showed her websites to visit and suggested books to read.
And the writer thought 'how the heck did I EVER think I could do this without her?' (THANK YOU THERESA!!!)
And so the writer set out into the blogosphere to find other talented writers to help lift her writing abilities. (Enter seven other amazing writer's names here.)
Pretty neat story, eh?
Well guess what? Over at Falling for Fiction - the group blog I am a part of - we're having a Critique Partner/Beta Mixer this Thursday! So whether you're just starting out and need someone to read your first draft of your first story, OR if you're at the point where you're a 'seasoned' writer venturing into a new genre and you're hoping to add another CP which writes in said new genre, this will be the place for you!
So stop on by, Thursday May 17th. Hopefully you'll find someone to add to your writing story.
