Guest Post on Critique Partners

Just want to give a quick shout out to Rae at A New Look on Books and thank her for letting me guest post on her website:

She is a freelance editor and a very kind soul. Twitter: @anewlookonbooks

An important goal of critique swapping is getting constructive feedback. It’s critical to be open-minded about comments and reactions because they’re from real people, readers, potential customers.

For an overview of what you can expect with critique partners as a writer, check out the post on Rae’s website here:

For an example Critique Sheet to download and use, go here: Critique Sheet.

We have to look at our writing as a job, not a child. It’s very hard, yes. But if we want quality writing and happy customers, we have to put our opinions aside and look at the pieces with unbiased eyes. This is what critique partners are critical for… perspective.

If you have any questions, feel free to send them my way via the Contact Form. Or, you can find me on Twitter (@ElysiaLStrife). I’m most active there.

Best wishes!
