I was recently invited to be a guest blogger on Poes Deadly Daughters andÂ I decided to write about the one thing that turned my writing around--a constructive critique.
The day I decided to write fiction, IÂ embarked on aÂ journey that took me to a whole new learning experience. I bought every "how-to" book I could get my hands on--read them cover to cover,Â read other author's worksÂ -- examined their styles, and participated in hundreds of fiction writing discussions in various author forums. All well and good, but none of those activities compare to theÂ valuable lessonsÂ IÂ learned after I submitted my manuscript to my critique group.Â Â
If you'reÂ interested in reading about my experience as a new author and how aÂ critique pushed my skills to the next level, please visit, http://poesdeadlydaughters.blogspot.com/Â :) I look forward to reading your comments both in Poes Deadly Daughters and here!
