I belong to a critique group. We meet two times per month and have been doing so for well over a year.
Attendance fades during the summer due to vacations and scheduling conflicts, and peaks during the long, rainy winter months (remember, I’m in Oregon where there’s no such thing as winter…and I’m qualified to say that since I’ve lived in the Midwest where one wrong move outside and you’re looking at frostbite, or worse)
With the Chapter Challenge group, you advertise for a buddy, find one you like, then exchange weekly goals for critiquing all the while encouraging each other to keep up with your writing goals.
But I digress from the question of the day…
How do you get the most from your critique group? Or, if you use Beta Readers, how does your relationship operate? Or, if you have neither, how is that working for you?
