THE VALUE OF A CRITIQUE
Have you ever had a professional critique? Or even listened to someone else get a critique? Having your work read out loud to people who haven’t heard or read it before is a great way to get unstuck. You can go to conferences and get a critique from attending faculty, or get one within your own critique group. If I hadn’t had my work critiqued I never would have grown. Even when there are growing pains, critiques are worth it because you end up in a better place, creatively. But there are a couple of big things to keep in mind.
Hi Rhonda -
You won't want to cut it off in the middle of a sentence or paragraph. Cut it off where it makes the most sense to someone who is only reading part of your manuscript. Congrats on getting picked for a critique!
Thank you, Katie, for your advice. I have been chosen for the April Block Party Critique and I am excited about finding out if trying my first chapter book is working. I know I can only send 1,000 words, but cutting off part of the chapter is hard. Will it make sense if the rest the chapter isn't there?
