For Day 2, I want to give a shout out to all my critique partners. While I know they have their own writing to do, they’re always there to answer a question or toss around an idea. Without them, my prose would be decent but not fantastic. Without them, my characters would be okay, instead of amazing. Without them…well without them my work would be total @#$%.
When I started my first manuscript, I had no clue I needed others to help my writing along. That others would see plot holes, when I didn’t. That characters I was trying to paint as snarky, were really just plain unlikable. You fall in love with your own writing so much sometimes, that you really can’t see where you need help.
So today, I am thankful for all my CPs who keep my writing honest and real. They’re not just my partners in writing but true friends!
Do you have amazing critique partners? If so, leave a comment and let me know. I always love to hear about the give-and-take between great writers.
