A-Z Challenge - Letter C

It's C day! C is one of my favorite letters -- Two of my kids' names start with C. But that's not what I'm talking about today :)

So. Since I'm not talking about my children, I'll talk about something else dear to my heart -- critique groups! I tried to write Feudlings without one. It didn't go well. There are things that I just don't see in my own writing, even if I can see them everywhere else (stupid things, like to and too. I KNOW these things, but when I'm writing, not so much. And when I'm editing my own writing? Even less). Having outside eyes who are in a similar boat as you is sooo helpful when you're writing. 

My critique group have become so much more to me than that. They're all very good friends and an awesome support group as well. I'd be lost without them!


  1. I imagine that would be imperative! It would actually help me to write just to keep up with everyone else :)

    1. Yes! I forgot to add that. If I didn't have my group to keep me accountable, I would get NOTHING DONE.

  2. It helps to have some constructive criticism when you're writing. Glad you found some help!

  3. AMEN! I love my critique group's honest comments to make me write right and write tight. Their encouragement & understanding of my struggles is priceless.

  4. Aw that's awesome you've got a good group to work with. I'm not a writer but have heard from many over the last year how helpful it is to have a team you can go to that just gets it and is there to help you through writing blips.

  5. I sometimes wish my group would be more critiqeeee...
