However, the important fact is that we are in this together. We’ve cheered for each other and we’ve shared tears. We’ve learned from one another, and, most importantly, we pray for each other. In our critique group, there is no competition. We help each other become the best we can be.
I’ve realized, over the years, that my best supporters aren’t those who say I’m a great writer. They aren’t even those who never find anything wrong with my writing. They’re the ones who gently show me the correct or a better way. If something isn’t working, such as the plot is too slow, or the character needs a bigger arc, they tell me by sandwiching the problem between honest praises.
Because of these wonderful people, I keep my fingers to the keyboard, as I press on toward my day of success.
So, I say a huge
to my critique group!!
