Don’t Hate on Your Crit Partners

currently playing on my laptop: Tibetan Singing Bowl music (yeah, you read me right)

Writers, isn’t it awesome when your critique partners/betas sing your praises?


But when they ask The Question You Didn’t Even Realize Needed Answering, it is less yayish.

Often, it is truly world-cracking.


Don’t hate on them for asking that question. Don’t ignore that question. Take time and write out your answer. Backstory that baby. It may be THE THING your characters needed in terms of gut, motivation, emotion, or desire.

That’s all I have today. And I think it is enough. !
