My Saving Grace

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my Critique Partners.   They've been my saving grace this past month.  When I hit plot wall, they throw me a rope.  When I can't find the right word, they email me twelve different options and a link to the thesaurus.  When I hate my characters, they send me an excerpt from one of my chapters reminding me why I started developing them in the first place.  Without them, I'd suck.  Plain and simple!

So thank you for always reminding me that every day doesn't have to be a good writing day, but I must write everyday.

    1. You are right. I think the support and encouragement is equally important as their feedback. It gives me the motivation to write through that difficult scene when all I want to do is burn the ms.
