Writers need critique of their work, at least some of it from people unrelated to them. So I’ve started thinking about finding sources of critique.
One popular source is Critique Circle, to which I’ve just signed up. It seems active and well-organized. Submitting my first critique was very straightforward. I hope that my comments on the first chapter of a fantasy novel will prove useful, and that I’ll get useful critique when the time comes.
A future post will concern the search for critique partners for my own fantasy novel-in-progress. Any comments on the fiction critique process would be welcome!
