Effictive critiques? Giving and receiving.

I was never good at coming up with topics, but now, it's worse. Everything my mind can come up with has been done before.

I am blogging about all things writing and JK Rowling. I also divulge secrets about the craft.

Because writers are insane. Being a writer is misery. And, as we all know, misery loves company :)

Hey, BBC. Maybe you could edit the first post in this thread and put a little schedule for the next few weeks, and we can schedule topics in advance.

RC = smart

 

Warrior - even if it's been done before, we have a rotating crowd here. Old topics might be new to some people, or there might be new material since last discussed. Never be afraid to toss something out there.

How about rule breaking in writing. .. like using adverbs and prologues when everyone says they're the devil?

What about beta etiquette? Suggesting ground rules before an exchange, what makes a good partner, and how to take (and give) the harsh reality without burning a bridge?

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

-T. Roosevelt

At the end of the day, wishes are just a suggestion box ticket for dreams, and dreams, while entertaining, are not of substance. Achievement is won on the ground, not in the clouds.
