Lesson: Regular, Positive Criticism
Find someone to give you honest criticism, even if it’s sometimes harsh. Criticism and opinions from others, especially in the early stages, can spark ideas. Share your plot, theme, and premise.
This will also toughen you up for when rejections come from agents, publishers, or reviewers. Getting your name out there is a mark of success.
You may notice that I went hashtag crazy with this title.
There’s no writing to be done for this exercise. So I’m going to spend my final challenge day suggesting two places where a writer might get this “Regular, Positive Criticism.”
Beta Readers are difficult to find. Join the World Literary Cafe and make the search easier.
Get support online or off with NaNoWriMo.
I’m now going to plug 3 people from one of my local nanowrimo chapters who signed up for the atozchallenge.
