So… I was going around checking the blogs I follow and Chuck Robertson had an interesting blog entry about critiques.

Yeah, yeah, I know, I’m not the writer, annamaria is, but the post was interesting and I do have a few things to say about it because annamaria always talks about this subject.

Now, okay, let me get my thoughts together and remember what she says about it… The most important thing according to annamaria is that an author also learns about structure, new words, expressions. Critiquing someone’s work is a learning experience of not only what you as a writer should never do, but also learn what you should be doing that you’re not.

I guess it’s very much like reading. When you read you learn how to form better sentences, new words, how to put together your thoughts in a concise manner. When it comes down to it, it’s a learning experience, helping the writer to grow.

On another note, annamaria has finally gotten all the comments from the beta readers and has sent them to her editor. White Swans will soon be ready for submission.
