THE BENEFITS OF HELP   Leave a comment

I went to another critique of my writers’ group. My last critique was at the SCBWI Summer Convention. That critique was very well done and completely on the mark, however, after the critique I started to write than stopped. I stayed stopped for two years. I was very upset and it wasn’t because of my critique. My critique was right on, just like it was this time. I was grateful for both critiques.

I choose not to drag out the reasons behind my ill feelings. One it would do my writing career no good and two, it would tell you too much about me. I have decided to just let it go and move on.

Since the last critique, I have been writing and using all the advice everyone so graciously offered. I have also begun to read Starters which is a very enjoyable; and the author is a science fiction author like I am working to be. I did that wrong. I AM a science fiction/fantasy writer, I just haven’t gotten anything publish and my writing needs a lot of improvement. Lissa Price has a wonderful book and she was once a part of our little group of merry writers.
