Everyone's a Critic

Today's another installment of the Beta Club over at Fiction Groupie. Roni is awesome to offer her time and her blog to help the rest of us with our novels.

Maybe you're feeling a little shy to respond because you haven't done much critiquing in the past. Well, there's no time like the present.

Here are some resources for giving constructive feedback:

And remember, the more you crit, the better you'll be able to turn that critical eye on your own writing! Don't be shy--whether you're a grammar Nazi, or have a good ear for dialogue--all feedback is welcome.

It's so true that the more you critique, the more you can see with your own writing. I think this is one of the reasons I've made it as far as I have. :)

Critiquing has definitely been a huge help with my own writing. I'm heading over to Roni's next.

I agree. Knowing how to critique is critical (heehee) to becoming a better writer. :) Great pic!
