Feedback. We writers need it! We love those stellar reviews we get from our readers, but getting those reviews requires writing good books. For that, we need people to help us along the way.
Andrea Huelsenbeck lays out the reasons and the methods for giving and receiving great feedback. Here’s her guideline for critiquing another writer’s work, whether you’re in a critique group or a Beta reader. I’m paying attention! I hope you are, too.
How do you know if what you are writing is any good? Too often I reread something I wrote years ago (or days ago) and discover it’s shamefully incoherent.
Writing is a mostly solitary profession. We craft the words while alone. But we release them into the world at our peril if we don’t get some feedback first.
