(Or, So Much to Say in so Few Words)
I've done so many interviews lately, I hardly know how to stop. So for my sake, as I head back into regular posts for a while, pretend that I'm interviewing you. You don't even have to answer the questions. Unless you want to.
NAE: Do you have a critique group or a few good critique partners? Because if you don't, then you should read all the interviews we've had on this blog one more time. And then get yourself one, or maybe a few. Here's a few ideas on how to find one.
Because? They pull you up when you're down. They point out the flaws you don't see. They push you to your next level. They yank you higher than the highest point you've ever imagined.
Even when you suck and don't know it, they teach you how not to suck so bad. And then one day, you don't suck anymore. It's true.
That's all for now. Oh, except this: hearts to all my critique partners/mentors/betas. I owe youse guys so much.
