So, I was on David Brin's website today reading his "Advice for New Writers" - which is funny because I'm not actually new...just primarily unpublished. Still, the advice was good stuff. One piece of advice that I have decided to implement (on that could be good for lots of us...) is a Critique Workshop. I have never used this enough as I am egotistical and usually disdain other opinions, which could be poison to a writer trying to improve. So, I made the commitment to try this out. Mr. Brin recommended thi site - Critters .
I read through it and it is free (always key to the starving artist), all you have to do is provide critiques for other writers. Reading other stuff is extremely important to writers. I think we should digest more than we produce when it comes to writing/reading, so it seems like a good idea. Thought I would post it in case others might need the same sort of "creative examination".
I'll keep ya posted.
