I've been thinking alot about critique groups lately and wondering if I should try to find one. I've been praying about it for awhile and then read Lynnette Labelle's blog Chatterbox Chit Chat. She has become a matchmaker for those who are interested in joining a crit group. All you have to do is shoot her an email and answer a set of questions.
I sent her an email. And I am nervous.
Many of you know my dad is an editor and does work for some really famous people. He has my first MS and has started editing it. He has alot of work himself right now, so hasn't gotten very far in the edits and I am itching to get my hands on it once again. I think I need to start working on it, digging in and really making myself learn how to edit.
I think a critique group might help me. I think it would give me different perspectives and teach me many things I couldn't learn on my own.
For those of you in crit groups, how often do you crit? How much do you crit per person in the group? What is the norm? Is there a norm?
Inquiring minds want to know...
