I had a good day today. Got some real quality work done. I was excited about showing the results to someone.
This is why I work with critique groups. In the past I would write something and try show or explain what I’d done. But all too often, there’s a wall. Most people do not understand the creative process – that completing one task may create other issues from spelling to inaccurate facts.
But the critique group is looking for growth, development, and improvement. They are familiar with the genre, tone and voice of the project. And as it evolves, they stay with it because they are a part of the growth and help mold the story through their questions, suggestions and supportive criticism.
Having a critique group that is consistent, constructive and understanding is better than a wireless printer or ten free reams of paper.
It is not better than a fully developed plot plan… but to have plot plan and a critique group is awesome.
lots of good stuff
