…do you have one (or more?) If not, check out the article, "To Critique or Not to Critique" by Angela Briedenbach in the March issue of Christian Fiction Online Magazine. ACFW has a program to get writers connected in a critique loop and a monthly class to get you started.
From this editor’s POV, I really appreciate when authors are running their manuscripts by a good critique partner before sending them in to me.
If you do have great a great critique partner or critique group, leave a comment and tell us what makes your writing/editing relationship work well. Have you ever had a bad experience? What did you learn from it?
