Today, I took Chapter 1 of Bon Secour to the CITE Writers Group for critique.
I was afraid to let anyone read what I had written.
They were fair in their criticisms. My violent story opening may not have been their cup of tea, but, they said they liked how I wrote action.
Don't you just love it when someone says something nice to you. God Bless Them!
Wish I could learn how to be more diplomatic and not so blunt in my own criticism.
I appreciate that I got better than I give.
They didn't like my carefully crafted opening sentence and paragraph. I thought it was genius. They thought, 'not so much.'
I still think I need to re-work the first paragraph. For now I will wait for the muse to inspire me.
Now I'm fired up to have another chapter ready for critique next week.
