Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 12.07.17 amThis month, in the Upcoming Romance Writers Blog we discuss critique and feedback. It would be great to hear your thoughts on the subject.

Towards the end of last year I participated in an online ‘edit and pitch your novel’ course with a well known provider of writing training, but unfortunately I received zero feedback from the experts on any of my written work. As a consumer that left me feeling somewhat frustrated and hard done by (FFS!). As a writer I know that this is often going to be the case and I have to do my best to gird my loins and develop rhinoceros hide. It’s not always easy. However at least I received some valuable feedback from my cohort of aspiring authors.

Like a spotlight, constructive critique can brighten the darkest of hours and in terms of improving craft it can highlight areas that need, well, editing.  In this blog we would be delighted it you read, digested and fed back your own thoughts on the gnarly subject of giving and receiving critique…
